So here’s the story behind me posting this article. My brother sent me a YouTube video about hot rod builder Bodie Stroud, whose name I’ve heard before but had never known he built a very classic ’69 Mustang from the ground up for the SEMA show this past month.
Being a fan of pure American muscle from all decades, the video description caught my attention and I thought it would be an interesting watch for you guys.
“THE REAL THING is a short documentary about custom hot rod builder BODIE STROUD and his re-imagining of a classic Mustang by way of an extremely rare and powerful motor built specifically for legendary racer Mario Andretti’s 1969 Can Am series race car. The film follows the complex and creative build from its early stages, through its initial test drive all the way to an unveiling at the SEMA Car Show in Las Vegas where Bodie comes face to face with Mario Andretti himself.”
Check out the video after the jump.
