If you're a fan of breaking from the norm, this car might be the weekend cruiser for you. It's a 1968 Ford Mustang convertible with a turbocharged 2JZ straight-six swap from a Toyota Supra. It's for sale. You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
According to , this Mustang underwent a full rotisserie restoration with a lot of new sheet metal, new glass, and a new red paint job. The engine is a machined block with a 10:1 compression ratio connected to a 67mm Precision turbocharger running on 30 psi of boost. It runs on E85, and currently makes 730 horsepower to the wheels. The seller claims the 2JZ was built to handle up to 1000 horsepower, and says all the new owner would have to do was slap on a bigger turbocharger to make it happen. Sending power to the rear wheels is a General Motors TH400 automatic transmission and a nine-inch rear end.
In addition to the unique drivetrain, the car also has a ProEFI 128 ECU, bigger brakes, Bilstein shocks, an aftermarket steering rack, and drag radial tires out back.
The seller claims they're getting rid of the car because it's currently in the US, and they live in Germany, but can't import it. It's with a starting bid of $35,000 and eight hours remaining left to bid. The seller also says they'd be willing to accept trades instead of cash.
This actually isn't the first 2JZ-swapped Mustang we've heard of. That title goes to this 1968 Gulf-liveried coupe we wrote about back in 2017. It might not be the most popular swap, but it sure does seem like a fun one.
