$1.3 Million 850 HP ’67 Mustang Fastback Owned by Dan Gadzuric is Going to Auction
Feel Like Placing A Bid On This Obsidian Mustang?
Updated October 28, 2018
We’re used to watch tailor-made supercars warrant $1 million and above stickers, but when something as common as Mustang Fastback costs that kind of money, then you know it’s a real deal. This 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback nicknamed “Obsidian” (likely for its pitch black demeanor) was assembled by Matt Crouper of Autoworks International in El Cajon, CA. According to Barrett-Jackson auction house, pony car took $1.3 million in order to be assembled. I don’t know what California-based house did to it, but I assume they didn’t leave a single inch unturned.
As you can see, the Obsidian Mustang is unique in every single way. Special body kit features a hulking hood scoop, honeycomb grille, unique side skirts, flared wheel arches, special wheels, and many more details. Things aren’t much different inside as well. Interior is efficiently furbished in leather with custom-tailored “Obsidian” inscription upon luxury floor mats. Contemporary equipment includes Recaro heated sport seats, handcrafted dash, Alpine audio with Kicker amps, XM radio, MP3 player, internet capability, navigation, etc. Overall cabin layout has been kept intact, however which is no mean feat considering all of the adjustments that have been made in order to accommodate all of the modern features listed above.
What’s most interesting about this custom ’67 Mustang Fastback is hidden under the hood. 392 ci V8 with twin Rotex superchargers and a pair of custom intercoolers develops a whopping 847 hp and 750 lb-ft of torque according to the last dyno tests. That’s enough for 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds. That’s enough to put a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to shame. That’s more than you’ll ever need, in fact. All these horses are pushed to the rear wheels via Tremec TKO 600 5-speed transmission which is another custom touch within this ’67 Mustang.
If all of the aforementioned isn’t something you’d consider brag-worthy, note that the car has been owned by Dan Gadzuric for the past three years. Yes, that Dan Gadzuric – former NBA center for Milwaukee Bucks among others. Barrett-Jackson states that Gadzuric was mesmerized by Obsidian’s charms, and we completely understand the guy.
The 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Obsidian will be sold at Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast auction event in June so feel free to join the ride. Know that Barrett-Jackson expects Obsidian to go for a hefty sum, however. The car didn’t cost $1.3 million to be assembled for nothing, after all.
