Attention collectors! Here’s your chance to own a piece of HOT ROD Magazine history … a one-of-a-kind 65 Mustang Fastback project car dubbed “Mustang Magic”. This story began in the 1970s when a pooped out pony was purchased by HOT ROD magazine’s editor, Bruce Caldwell, then transformed into a super street wide-body stallion by custom designer Eddie Paul. This car was featured in 8 issues of Hot Rod from Dec, 1978 to Jan, 1980 with a cover shot on the Aug, 1979 edition. The entire build was consolidated into a 28-page article in the “first” edition of MUSTANG MAGAZINE in 1980 and also graced the cover of Petersen Publishing’s Shop Series book titled “Engine Swapping”. If you have access to the #1 issue of Mustang Mag, look it up. You’ll be impressed with the work put into this car including a 289 engine blue-printed at the Edelbrock factory in California.
