Most gearheads that have an ounce of gasoline pumping through their veins at one point or another have tweaked, customized, or modified their cars. Whether that’s simply a bobble-head doll on the dashboard, installing seat covers, or more intensive upgrades like suspension, exhaust, engine modifications or custom paintjobs, is determined on the owner’s budget, determination or creativity, and sometimes a combination of all three. Justin Bell, a seasoned motorsports pro, is a relative latecomer to the street car customizing scene, but picked the infinitely customizable Ford Mustang as his starting point.
Bell decided he wanted a 2014 Ford Mustang GT with a manual transmission. From that starting point, he consulted with the customization pros at Galpin to give his Mustang a unique look. Starting with a Grabber Blue Mustang GT, Bell added racing stripes, a lowered performance suspension, a body kit, and an appropriately loud exhaust.
In a matter of just a few days, Bell took delivery of his custom-configured Mustang from Galpin, and became part of the “custom club.” Watch the video below, and be sure to catch The World’s Fastest Car Show every Friday on the Motor Trend Channel!
