1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 'Eleanor' Recreation

The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 through to 1970. From 1967, the GT350 carried over the K-Code high performance 289ci with a 'COBRA' aluminium hi-rise. The GT500 was then added to the line-up. These later cars carried over few of the performance modifications of the 1965/66 GT350s although they did feature more cosmetic changes. In September 1967, production was moved to the A.O. Smith Company of Ionia, Michigan under Ford control. Immortalised in the film 'Gone in 60 Seconds' from 2000 starring Nicholas Cage, the Shelby Mustang known as 'Eleanor' was the ultimate steal for Cage who played a retired professional car thief forced back to work after his younger brother had upset his unfriendly employer. Based on the 1967 Shelby GT500 fastback, the 'Eleanor' was a modernised variant with serious power and is considered by many to be the ultimate Mustang. What can only be described as a fabulous example and finished to a very high standard, this GT500 recreation is based on a 1968 390GT Mustang that, if restored in its original guise, would be valued at over £60,000 alone. With this original S-Code 390 starting point, confirmed by its accompanying Marti Report, and offering a 6.4 litre Big Block V8 producing a dyno tested 450+ bhp coupled to a TKO 600 five- speed gearbox, the rebuild had begun in a way that excited its current vendor and mastermind behind this stunning recreation.  Having restored many American muscle cars and originally earmarking the 390GT for a Bullet replica, the vendor became increasingly frustrated by cheap body kitted examples of the Eleanor on poor donor car's fitted with very little care and attention referencing them as "all show and no go". His personal challenge was to build the ultimate recreation offering a GT500 replica that sounded, looked, handled and impressed as it should. Amongst countless other upgrades included is a Control Freak fully adjustable coilover system to the front suspension with Heidts four- link with adjustable coilovers to the rear, helping you stop are Willwood four piston calipers with drilled and slotted rotors. We strongly advise viewing both the car and the history file and believe this is amongst the best, if not, the best on the market today.  One of the most iconic cars in movie history offered in such spectacular form this Mustang has the GO BABY GO! * Photo's courtesy of Ben Klemenzson - Classic American magazine
