If you have been dreaming about owning one of the most iconic and well recognized cars in the world, the 1967 Mustang Eleanor GT500E, then you have just found THE CAR! This car was built from the ground up in 2012 and nothing was spared in the build. It was built with PERFORMANCE and RELIABILITY and VISUAL APPEAL in mind. The build started with a Dynacorn '1967' Mustang Fastback chassis. Dynacorn is licensed by Ford to produce brand new chassis' using the Ford templates from the 1960's. Next, an Eleanor body kit was installed on the chassis. This included fender flares, ground effects, high rise hood, front and rear spoilers, side scoops, lower valence exhaust cutouts, all the stuff from the original Chip Foose design. Once the kit was installed and molded to the chassis, the car was painted pepper grey with black stripes, just like the conic movie car. The result is a beautiful car that shines bright and catches eyes wherever it goes.
In addition to being a breathtakingly beautiful car, this car was also built to perform. Under that high rise hood rests a Ford Racing all aluminum 427 ci, 600 hp naturally aspirated monster. The engine has long tube headers, Edelbrock intake, Holley 780 cfm carb, MSD electronic ignition, Cobra valve covers and air cleaner, and aTru Trac serpentine accessory drive. Mated to the engine is a Tremec TKO 5-speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch. The power is put to the wheels via a Chris Alston Chassisworks rear suspension that includes a bulletproof Curie 9" Ford rear axle, massive horizontal coils over shocks, multi link trailing arms and stabilizers, subframe connectors, and Strang Engineering axles. You have to look at the pictures to get a real appreciation for the sophistication of this rear suspension. It is fully tunable to handle different driving scenarios. Back up front, a TCI independent front suspension with sway bars and adjustable coil over shocks helps this Mustang carve turn with ease and precision.
All this power and handling capability would not be very effective unless the brakes can stop the car quickly and effectively. The car sports a complete Wilwood braking system with stainless steel 6 piston calipers up front and 4 piston calipers in the rear. Cooling is handled by an aluminum radiator and dual electric fans.
The car rides on American Racing Shelby Z427 wheels. Inside, custom racing bucket seats with Simpson Harnesses provide a comfortable, safe ride. A roll bar adds an extra level of protection. Vintage Air Gen IV keeps the interior cool. Modern Classic Instruments include speed, RPM, oil pressure, fuel Level, and water temp. A wood grain steering wheel completes the nostalgic look.
This car has it all: beautiful looks, classic styling, modern suspension, lots of horsepower, high end components, and performance beyond belief. Cars of this caliber routinely sell for $150-200K at the Mecum and Barrett Jackson auctions! Buy it here and save yourself the hefty commission fees!
