Mustang Trike

Now here's something special! This came through my email and even though I have said that I am not much of a fan of trikes I have to admit that this one is outstanding.
Apparently it took the owner two years to complete and as can be seen it is already a prize winner.
A 1967 Ford Mustang, with the V8 engine converted into a trike. I don't know where it comes from but I would think that something like this can only be American, can anybody shed any light? This thing is probably frighteningly fast and as can be seen a lot of loving care has gone into the fabrication.
"Warning - if you value your life like I value this trike don't mess with it"
Very nice upholstery, probably a very comfortable ride. Very nicely finished, I would love to see this beauty on the road. There is no sign of a gear lever so it would have to be an automatic as, I suppose the original Mustang was. These cars are very scarce here so there's not much chance of me making one of these!...........I wish.

Nice bit of kit - won't show Jennie or she'd be putting pressure on...

Thanks Andrew

EEWWW!!!! I'm sorry...but that just seems sacrilegious to do that to a Mustang. I would much rather have seen the Mustang restored. I'm a California girl of old and always, always, always wanted a 60's Mustang...

Lori I must admit that I'm pretty much with you on that, I too have always wanted a Mustang and that model was a beauty, it does seem a bit of a waste unless it was an accident damaged vehicle and the front end was written off.
