Another project we're working on here at The Restomod Shop is the Brockster, a take off on the Ronster which Mustangs Plus built back in 1995 and 1996. When father and son, Gary and David Brock, first saw the Ronster, they knew that they had to have one; but they wanted one that was built the way they wanted it! So, they bought a neglected 1965 Mustang coupe, cut the top off, and got underway building it. Then a strange thing happened. Gary's business, Brock Construction, got busier, and busier, and busier. That's good, right? The only problem was that they got so busy that Gary and David, who also works in the family construction business, had no time to work on the Brockster. And so it sat until one day when Gary and David brought it to The Restomod Shop and sat down with us to talk about it.
Gary and David had a clear vision of what they wanted the Brockster to be. Low to the ground, sleek and streamlined on the top. But, still a Classic Mustang through and through. They told us the things they liked about the Ronster; and told us the things they didn't like about the Ronster. They listed all of the accessories and bells and whistles they wanted the Brockster to have. And they told us how they wanted it to perform and handle. Boy, did they have some cool ideas! Then they told us that they wanted The Restomod Shop to build the car! So that's exactly what we're doing!
The first thing to address was the stance of the Brockster. Low.... With all of Terry Simpson's experience building race cars, he pointed out that it would be very difficult to try to keep the stock suspension and suspension mounting points of the Classic Mustang on a car that was going to be as low as the Brockster. So Terry proposed to build a square tube frame for the Brockster that they could attach all of the performance suspension to. The Restomod Shop would then set it up to handle like a racecar and drop the Mustang body on over the top of the custom built chassis. Gary and David liked the idea of a racecar with a Restomod Mustang body and approved the project. The Brockster project was turned over to the fabrication shop at The Restomod Shop and is well underway. Boy, will it be cool when it's done!
As progress is made, more pictures will be posted. This will be a great Restomod Mustang project that will be very unique. Be sure to tell your friends about it so they can visit therestomodshop.com and see it for themselves. Enjoy!
