Rebuilding a 1965 Ford Mustang with Alex Brundle: part 3


This year we tasked Alex Brundle with rebuilding a 1965 Ford Mustang to make it race ready, and with the help of Pearsons Engineering, Alex and the team have finally managed to get the car on track at Silverstone. 

In the third part of our video series, Alex and the team are at one of the world’s most iconic tracks – Silverstone – before their second test at Donnington Park, as they finally get to see the payoff of all their hard work they’ve put into transforming the 1965 Ford Mustang from its skeleton to a fully fledged racing vehicle. 

Alex is delighted the team have managed to get the car on track, telling Adrian Flux: “First run in the Mustang and so far so good. Got it out on track, but it’s so weird to get it out on track, but also really, really cool. 

“I enjoyed it. We had a tweak to make after the first run, to put a catch-tank on the defoil, but that’s fine. Then we had some set-up tweaks to get the car where it needs to be, but now we’re running, we’ll do more and more performance work. It’s exciting times ahead!

“It’s time to get our racing programme underway, which is amazing considering I’ve seen the car in its skeleton form. I’m delighted to be in the car and racing and can’t wait to keep going.”
