‘Imagine Dragons’ gets Mustang on American Restoration
[dropcap style=”style1″]A[/dropcap]merican Resotation has saved the best for their season seven finale: a custom built 1967 Ford Mustang brought to life by Bodie Stroud for Dan Reynolds, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons.
“Bodie Stroud is hands down one of the most inventive and talented car builders in the industry today,” Reynolds said of Stroud, who has built cars for Tim Allen, Johnny Knoxville, and Johnny Depp throughout his career, establishing himself as a premier car builder on the west coast and the go-to custom car builder among many celebrity’s.
Reynolds said that he has dreamt of having a 1967 Mustang since he was young. Knowing Stroud keeps the classic integrity of the car while incorporating modern features, Reynolds presented Stroud with the task of building an Eleanor-esque 1967 Mustang fastback that could be used as a daily driver.
American Restoration viewers will see Stroud place a Roush Performance supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote engine in the Mustang. Other features on this build include modern brakes from Wilwood and a custom exhaust from MagnaFlow. To give this classic car the ride of a modern sports car, Stroud will also equip the Mustang with custom BSI suspension.
“Building this Mustang for Dan was a great project,” said Stroud. “He was a great customer and I liked that he had a basic idea of what he wanted built, but let me build the car my way. I can’t wait to see the look on his face when we reveal it to him on ‘American Restoration’ – he’s going to love this car.”
The Mustang will be revealed to Reynolds on the season seven finale of American Restoration, Friday, April 1 at 10/9 p.m. CDT on HISTORY.
