1968 Shelby GT500 Eleanor. This car was totally restored with no expense spared, from top to bottom.
It began its life as a rare X-Code 390 Mustang. It now has a 429ci 500hp / 550tq Big Block, mated with a modified C6 semi-auto transmission w/ Hurst competition plus shifter. All that power is sent to the rear 315's tires with a 9'' Positraction rear end with 3.73 gears. The paint and body work are phenomenal, no orange peel, no scratches or stone chips. The body kit was professionally fitted. Inside, only the best materials were used. Leather seats front & back, custom made door pannels, brushed aluminium dash pannels, overhead console with map lights, shelby style center console.
Extensive restoration that took 10 years to complete. Finished 3 years ago, 800 miles since total rebuild. This car has never seen rainy days and was always garage kept.
