This widebody 1978 Mustang II is called “Mustang Evolution” and was built by A-Team Racing in Oregon. Besides the upgraded looks the car features a very large Triton V10. The aftermarket for Tritons are small so everything on the engine is custom. To make room for the larger engine the front wheels were moved forward 12 inches. Another interesting feature is the taillights are from a 1976 Toyota Celica GT hatchback. It could not compete for the Ridler award because it was shown once on the web but did take home 1st place in Pro Street Custom at Autorama 2014. They really did a great job on this Mustang as I think it is my favorite 1978 ever.
