(Photos by Charles Wickam and David Reese) – When Charles called and asked if we would be interested in doing a feature on a totally kick ass 1966 Mustang fastback done in the gasser style that gets street driven, wins car shows, and also is drag raced, we told him HELL YES without having seen the car. Once we saw the photos we were instantly in love with one of the neatest home built cars we have seen in some time. David Reese owns the car and built it in his one car garage at home. This was no simple deal of putting some nice paint on a 1966 fastback and jamming a straight axle and 351 Cleveland into it. No way. Reese started with a totally clapped out 1966 Mustang Coupe, added the fastback shell, built the steel tilt nose, did the cage himself, did the front axle himself, and the dude now plans to drive it from Texas to Kentucky for the Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion this June! We love this guy!
