The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift
A 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback was owned by Major Boswell, who found it on the army base. When Sean woke up one morning, he found his father working on the car, the frame old and half completed. When Sean challenges the Drift King, Takashi to a race through his uncle, Kamata, Sean and his friends work to restore the 1967 Ford Mustang.
Sean uses the Ford Mustang to race Takashi down the mountain he's never been beaten on. Despite several close calls wherein Sean is almost over the edge the road, he is able to win when Takashi's car careens off the edge near the bottom of the mountain and crashes.
The 1967 Ford Mustang Fastbacks used in Tokyo Drift were built using 1968 Ford Mustang models. It took the production team a total of two months to install the Nissan Skyline GT-R engine in the 1967 model.
Additionally, a 430-inch Windsor motor with 9-inch rear end and a spool, was used. The horsepower of the motor was brought closer to "500 horsepower" as a result. Two duplicate Mustangs using the aforementioned motor were built.
Other upgrades include improved brakes, racing seats, seven spoke wheels and a rear roll cage. Extra headlights have been removed so that the front-mount inter cooler can access a sufficient air supply.
- Every Ford Mustang used in the production of Tokyo Drift survived and were not destroyed during filming.
- Five out of six Ford Mustangs were sold to buyers in Southern California and sold on Ebay and the Recycler. Their prices ranged from $14,000 to $22,000.
- The Mustangs were built by Sean Morris, who owns Toprank Imports, who also provided other cars for the franchise such as the 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33, 1992 Mercedes S-Klasse and the 2010 Bentley Continental GT.
