The Anvil Mustang is a successful collaboration of design ideas and talents between Pure Vision and Anvil Auto. The project began as a vehicle to develop and showcase a new line of 1969 Ford Mustang parts for Anvil Auto. What it has become far surpassed everyone’s expectations. It has won many prestigious awards and is featured in the “Fast And Furious 6” movie and continues to gain in notoriety with a spread in Hot Rod Magazine.
The following carbon fiber parts were developed by Anvil Auto and Pure Vision: Custom hood with functional air extractors, front bumper, front spoiler, front fenders (widened by 1 1/8”), custom cowl panel with recessed wire mesh vent opening, deck lid, rear quarter extensions, flush bumper, custom 3 pc. rear spoiler, driver’s and passenger’s dash inserts. Modifications to the stock sheet metal performed by Pure Vision are numerous, albeit, subtle. Like all Pure Vision creations, the goal was to enhance the original body lines without spoiling them, while adding details that have purpose. Here is just a partial list of some of the more significant mods. Front grille modified to eliminate inboard headlights and adding fog lights behind it. Front lower valance has’66 Corvette turn signals frenched into it and former turn signal housings modified to serve as brake cooling ducts.
Firewall moved back 3 ½”. The rear quarters have been widened by 1 1/2” on either side. Tail panel modified to fit ’68 Mustang tail lights and cut outs with mesh screen, Anvil icon gas cap. Back up lights removed from lower valance and “floating” PIAA lights place behind mesh in tail panel. Rocker panels modified to fit side exit exhaust. Functioning rear quarter brake cooling scoops. Door handles, wiper arms and hood hinges all lightening drilled Major amounts of steel tubing integrated into chassis, engine bay and passenger compartment for much needed stiffening. Anvil Phantom side marker lenses integrated into body work.
