For Sale: 1967 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The magnetic spell that classic cars have over us is an undeniable force, but one that often conflicts. When curb appeal capable of stopping you dead in your tracks also comes with a primitive driving experience - where every imperfection on the road is felt inside, or the rear end seems to be a little tardy coming out of turns - our enthusiasm can certainly be dampened. That's a challenge ably solved by this stunning 1967 Ford Mustang GT500E Restomod Fastback. It combines outstanding Shelby GT500E good looks with a host of well-chosen modern upgrades and performance specs that make it an absolute blast to drive. I'm usually not one for hyperbole, but I can confidently say that this unreal S-Code Mustang - with its transformed body, Bullitt-style dark green paint, sporty leather interior, and whiplash-inducing 427 V8/6-speed drivetrain - is the most jaw-dropping Mustang I've ever had the pleasure to write about.

You'll find a sizable legion of Mustang enthusiasts who believes that the 1st-gen fastbacks are among the best-looking classic cars. Furthermore, many argue that the mysterious 'Eleanor Mustang' (hence the 'E' at the end of GT500E) is the greatest looking Mustang of all time. A peculiar claim, not because I necessarily disagree, only that the Eleanors aren't technically 'real' Mustangs. They were never Ford production cars, and the famous Eleanor is not a classic at all, but rather a modern follow-up to the original 1971 'Eleanor' used in a H.B. Halicki's movie, Gone in 60 Seconds. In 2000, the film was remade and its biggest star was a 'new' Eleanor Mustang designed by Steve Sanford - and even though the film was hardly memorable, the leading-role car was burned into the minds of fans all over the world. This particular Dark Moss Green fastback is one of the slickest builds we've ever laid our eyes upon, combining the top-notch design of the Shelby/Unique Performance collaborations with a Bullitt-style presence. If you're familiar with these cars, you know the restorations are insanely difficult and brutally expensive, and this beauty was built by two of the most highly respected shops in Texas. Completed in 2018, there's not a piece of the body that wasn't professionally attended to, with the giant hood, Shelby front clip, aggressive side scoops, lower-body ground effects, and Shelby rear clip complete with Thunderbird-sourced taillights all put together neatly to form the base of this legendary muscle car. Dark Moss Green is actually the original color, and the builders made the wise decision to stick with that recipe. Of course, modern materials vastly out-shine anything from the '60s, and with the addition of painted-on black stripes, this fastback looks absolutely sinister. With 5,102 miles on the build, it's no longer a perfect show car ready to pull straight into SEMA, and a closer examination will reveal an imperfection or two, but overall the curb appeal is so darn high that it's almost impossible to list any demerits. It would be like complaining that the frame around the Mona Lisa has some chips in it, or that Mozart's symphonies would've been even better if he only had a better haircut. The truth is it's a gorgeous, albeit not perfect, iconic Mustang that outclasses every other car, everywhere it goes.

The black vinyl interior is a stunner - a very skillful and effective recreation of the GT500's vintage look with a host of impressive features. Recaro buckets are well-padded, with no wear marks or creasing on their surfaces, and they feature 4-point racing harness seatbelts attached to a 4-point roll cage mounted just behind - a welcome safety upgrade. Beyond the Cobra tilt steering wheel, an attraction on its own, sits a reworked dash bezel filled with digital instruments that keep an accurate eye on the big block under the hood, and the billet pedals down below simply refuse to be treated gently. Splitting the buckets is the car's factory center console, reworked to house switches for the power windows and lights, a FiTech control module, and that gorgeous chrome 6-speed shifter that's topped with an 8-ball style Cobra knob. A retro-style AM/FM/AUX/BT stereo now manages upgraded speakers stashed throughout the cabin, and a trio of vents pump in cold R134a A/C and keep everyone comfortable. Plush black carpets insulate the floors while a custom headliner was cleverly installed above, the door panels at the flanks are virtually unmarked, and even the trunk was restored to match with custom hidden panels.

A 427 V8 monster lives under the hood, built for power but still manageable enough to drive regularly. Bored to a whopping 480 cubes, it was pro-built to eat asphalt faster than an industrial grader. Installed 5102 miles ago, it features all the standard go-fast parts, from aluminum heads, FiTech fuel-injection dual 4-barrels, a billet front-runner serpentine belt system, to a giant aluminum radiator up front that keeps the whole show running cool. It's neatly dressed in Cobra valve covers and a matching oval air cleaner (even the MSD ignition box was finished to match), plus fresh paint on the inner fenders and firewall. Everything under the hood is new, including the powdercoated braces, plumbing and electrical, power steering, and Wilwood power 4-wheel disc brakes, and you can see that it's all fresh. A Tremec 6-speed manual is assisted by all new components, while the 9-inch rear end is filled with 3.75 posi-traction gears inside. Long-tube headers feed into a cackling X-pipe dual exhaust system that sounds downright erotic with the electric cut-outs open at full bore and the rolling stock rides on Halibrand-style American Racing wheels with staggered 235/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear Nittos that set the killer stance.

Documented with a Marti report and loads of restoration receipts/photos, this S-Code GT500E Restomod is the one your parents told you to be worried about. Call today!
