This week on PowerNation Courtney features a gorgeous 1964.5 Mustang from the up and coming shop Mo’ Muscle Cars in Conroe, Texas. Shop Owner Blake Meaux joins us to talk about the build of this Pro Touring pony car for owner Rob Bryngelson. Rob’s dream started with a GT500 5.4 liter engine with a Mammoth supercharger that originally made 820 horsepower! He wanted Blake and his team to build a modern performing muscle car around a 1964.5 Mustang body. They started by reinforcing and bracing the floor and then coated the complete inside of the car with Lizard Skin sound and heat control. Then they had to make room for the supercharger by cutting the hood, raising it up and moving it back and then coated the underside of the hood in Lizard Skin heat control. The interior is faux leather with a hand-built steel dash with Classic Instrument Gauges and custom console with in house custom machined bezels. In the end, to make the car more drivable, they de-tuned it down to 620 horsepower. It’s an awesome car and a great block of tech for you this week on PowerNation.
Built by Mo’ Muscle Cars, this dependable highway driver and in town cruiser received a complete custom modernization. From its custom chassis that sports coilover suspension to its cutting edge drive train, the only thing original is its sheet metal. Added upgrades and a touch of Mo’ Muscle make this truck as reliable as any modern vehicle you could buy off the showroom today.

Already an iconic and beautiful car, this 1957 Chevy received an all out modernization by Houston based Mo’ Muscle Cars. A modern drivetrain, interior, and conveniences make it as drivable as vehicles that come off the show room floor today. The coilover suspension plants the horses to the ground to improve handling, while the rack and pinion steering allows for easy cornering. Being driven often, this car has proved to be as comfortable and enjoyable as it was originally intended to be but with all the modern conveniences of today.
This vehicle is the winner of many 1st place awards and is also the winner of the 2012 CASI Cup at Houston Autorama.
