Home / News / 69′ Pony with an Andretti-Raced Engine


Bodie Stroud (what a cool name, huh? If that were my name, I’d be somebody) has done what most of us would not even dare dream about; the custom hot-rod celebrity has installed an all-aluminum V-8 that was built for Mario Andretti to race in Can-Am into a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss.

Thus the car and the engine were conjoined, and all the painting, polishing and detailing of them. And on that day, Bodie Stroud ended his work which he had made; and he said about this work which he had made, “This custom remix, it preserves the noble spirit of the original Pony Boss.”

And, then he rested, for his work it was done.
