This ’67 Ford Mustang is the Latest Imagine Dragons Hit

When you’re the lead singer of a Grammy Award-winning rock band, driving a sleek custom car simply comes with the territory. At least, it does now for Dan Reynolds, frontman of the Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons.  Reynolds will make a guest appearance on the season finale of History Channel’s American Restoration, and he’ll be on the receiving end of this wild 1967 Ford Mustang, a car he commissioned hot rodder Bodie Stroud to create. According to Bodie Stroud Industries (BSI), Reynolds came to the shop with the idea of building a custom ’67 fastback in the style of the Eleanor Shelby GT500 (à la Gone in 60 Seconds fame) with the only stipulation being it had to be a suitable daily driver. Everything else was up to Stroud; talk about a good starting point. RELATED: See More Photos of the Actual "Eleanor" Shelby GT500

Little by little, the donor ’67 fastback (pictured above) has been morphed into a more modern thoroughbred, and while we can’t show you what it looks like, we can tell you what “Demons” hide underneath the hood. BSI tells us a modern Ford 5.0-liter Coyote V8 lives under the bonnet, and it comes fitted with a potent Roush supercharger, kicking out 597 horsepower and 509 lb.-ft. of torque to a Strange nine-inch rear end. A custom-built Magnaflow exhaust finds a home in the Mustang too, providing some backup vocals for Reynolds as he cruises the open road. Additional kit includes a custom four-link rear suspension, big Wilwood brakes at all four corners, Recaro seats, a Kenwood stereo, and a set of slick American Racing wheels.

“I've dreamt of having a ‘67 Mustang since I was young,” says Reynolds. “Bodie was absolutely the best man for the job. I can’t wait to see what he does with this project. I feel like a little boy on Christmas Eve.” Looking to check it out too? The episode airs on Friday April 1st. RELATED: This Rare Saleen SSC Mustang Has Driven 6,000 Miles in 27 Years
