2003 Ford Mustang Barris Kustom Cobra Pickup
In 2003, if you went to the right Ford dealer you could plunk down $34,995 and drive away in a Mustang that was hotter than anything ever to wear the name. The Cobra version of the Mustang came courtesy of Ford’s SVT division and started by dropping a 390 horsepower supercharged dohc V-8 into a chassis that, for the first time in the pony car’s history, was fitted with independent rear suspension. Also new was a six-speed manual transmission.

The sprint from 0-60 mph took just 4.5 seconds and the Mustang Cobra would run the quarter mile in the range of 12.9 seconds at 111 mph. Top speed was electronically-limited to 155 mph.

To set this potent pony apart, the hood, spoiler and many other trim items, including the rocker panel moldings, were unique. The hood and deck lid were also made of composite materials to keep weight down on a car that still tipped the scales at 3,665 pounds.

This Mustang is set even further apart by the simple fact that thanks to King of Kustoms George Barris and prototype builder Nick Gavriles of Auto Innovations in Walled Lake, Michigan. From the front, this pick-up is clearly a Mustang. Out back, though, the fastback roof is cut away, leaving flying buttresses on either side of a small pick-up bed lined with stainless steel. Press a button and down goes a divider window, opening up the cab to the air and the rear bed. It is also fitted with a specially-fabricated step-down tailgate.

A star attraction at the Detroit Autorama and at Ford Design, this unusual, and very quick, little truck is can be yours for some serious show and some serious go.
