Tuner Turns Rendering Artist’s Wild Mid-Engine ’67 Mustang Into Reality For SEMA


The team at ‘B is for Build’ has arrived at SEMA 2022 with its super custom mid-engine 1967 Ford Mustang. When we say super custom that might be an understatement too. Its stretched custom chassis, a V8 from a rival brand, and super-wide fenders just almost missed the show altogether.

B is for Build fans might know that another 1967 Mustang featured on the channel ended up being at the center of a lawsuit. That car was seized and the project was scrapped. This new Mustang breaks from tradition in every way possible.

The shell is really the only Mustang part of the entire build. The chassis is from the movie Need for Speed. In the film, it played a Bugatti Veyron. At its core, it’s an aluminum mid-engine chassis built with high-performance driving in mind.

What’s perhaps the wildest part of this whole build is that it started out as one artist’s rendering seen above. Karanadivi on Instagram first posted an image of the car back in mid-2021. Back then, he envisioned a Ferrari engine behind the occupants. Today, as the real car sits on display at SEMA 2022, the engine in the back is a Chevrolet LS V8.

After many weeks of painstaking work on the drivetrain, the fuel system, and the custom body panels, the car is on display at SEMA right now. It looks incredibly similar to the original design from Karanadivi. The fenders are tall and sharp and the rocker panels are finished in black just like the render.

At each corner are custom American Racing wheels based on its VF545 model. They’re 12-inches wide and on the rear, they feature a -140 offset meaning that the hub is deep inside of the barrel.

This crazy creation almost didn’t make it though. According to B is for Build creator Chris Steinbacher, the team broke the Mustang “bad” which in turn caused them to miss their shipping window. Thankfully, they managed to get the car to the show. We don’t know what went wrong but the team does plan to fix it there on-site.
