For Sale: 1968 Ford Mustang in Palmetto, Florida

Vehicle Description

Please visit for additional photos, information, and a video.. Eleanor ... a name now so intertwined with muscle car culture that one mention of it perks up the ears of Mustang fans and movie fans alike.

We are proud to offer this 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback, which started life as an already coveted J-code 302 car, that is now in full Shelby GT500 Super Snake spec. The restoration was done 3 years ago in England and no expense was spared. The exterior was fully restored and modified with the Eleanor style body kit. Those sleek lines were coated in a Gun Metal Gray Metallic paint with black racing stripes that make this car look fast, even sitting still. FR500 wheels match the paint scheme and look terrific wrapped in Pirelli Z-rated radial tires. What gets those tires turning? How about a built big block Ford V8 engine? It doesn't get much more exciting than that for the true muscle car fanatic. The engine is built with aluminum heads, an aluminum intake manifold, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a Super Sucker carb spacer, MSD ignition with billet distributor, full-length headers running to dual exhaust, braided lines, and dual electric fans to keep it all cool. The engine is topped with Ford Performance valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. That powerhouse of an engine is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission that makes driving this Mustang an absolute thrill ride! Power steering and power disc brakes make the car easy for anyone to enjoy.

The interior is nicely restored with Shelby embroidered bolstered bucket seats to keep you in control no matter how hard you push this car. A roll bar with harnesses, a billet tilt steering column with Shelby Cobra steering wheel, Shelby white face gauges, billet Shelby shifter, and billet Shelby pedals all remind you of exactly what you just sat in. The little red switch between the seats is just like in the movie and is sure to make your passengers smile. An Alpine AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth tucked in the dash is the only modern touch to be found in the aluminum covered dash.

The trunk is set up with a fuel cell, sound system with amps, and a nitrous system (that has never been used). Adjustable coil over shocks on all 4 corners give you the ability to massage this car into driving exactly the way you want. Subframe connectors, shock tower braces, and a fully caged rear end make this car incredibly stiff so it can handle the power the big block is producing!
