Wow: 1967 Mustang interior by Carlex Design

carlex-mustang-13tt

The 1967 and 1968 Mustang has one of the most eye-catching interiors of over fifty years of the pony car. The look is so iconic in fact, it has inspired the interior designs of the last three generations of Mustang.

In restorations and resto-modding taking this interior to a new level hasn’t always been easy, but the designers at Carlex Design have showed that even this nearly fifty-year old design has some new tricks.

Their most recent project car, a 1967 Mustang Fastback looks largely stock and unchanged from the outside, but open that door and it’s gonna rock your world.

A European firm, the interior makeover is a breath of fresh air from the typical bright colors and flash you see at local hot-rod shows here in the States, instead taking on a more premium and upscale vibe you might expect in a BMW M5.

Themed in black, a scheme Carlex calls Rock`n`Roll, surfaces all around are wrapped in a healthy looking combination of black nubuck and leathers. These range from the seats to the headliner, door panels, console and dash in a well done execution.

Even the floor is lined with leather hides, then capped with custom cut floor mats for underfoot areas. Seats retain the stock shape and a new take on the heritage upholstery pattern but have custom made headrests.

Genuine carbon fiber trims are then laid in all the traditional places you would find brushed aluminums or fake wood. Even the door metal itself is wrapped with carbon fiber – very cool. Detail touches abound such as well thought out cut patterns and liberal use of highlight thread stitching.

The custom made steering wheel features a carbon fiber rim with screw-heads showing the Carlex logo embossed on them. The logo also shows up on custom leathered turn signal and tilt column levers, that column also wrapped in leather.

All I can say is this thing must smell as intoxicating as it looks from behind the wheel.

Carlex Design is primarily known for their high-end fashion car interiors, building custom variations of many different cars from Mercedes to Porsche, MINI to BMW. Based in Poland, they offer their bespoke services upon request. And if you are curious what the price is? Well you know what they say.
