1967 Ford GT500 Eleanor Replica
June 1, 2016
This over-the-top, GT500 Eleanor replica is in absolutely perfect condition and ready for display or to enjoy as a weekend toy. Only 141 test miles on the odometer since a complete two year rotisserie restoration. There isn’t a nicer one on the planet.
The engine is a Ford 351 Windsor full roller from Ford Racing and Performance Parts (FRPP), rated at more than 400 HP and 400 lb/ft of torque, fully balanced and blueprinted, with MSD electronic ignition and a 100 amp chrome single wire alternator.
Power from the Ford Racing crate engine is transferred to the rear wheels via a Tremec TKO 600 five speed transmission, a Hydramax hydraulic clutch, Quick Time bell housing, and a seamless DOM driveshaft with solid U-joints and a 9″ Ford rear end with nodular 3:50 to 1 gears. All components are designed specifically for a 1967 Mustang or Shelby unibody.
Putting power to the ground with Total Control Products aluminum motor mounts, and coil over front suspension with fully adjustable shocks. Steering is Total Control Products rack and pinion power steering with high performance KRC pump and remote aluminum reservoir.
Side exit exhaust is the only correct system made for this Eleanor replica with JBA piping and Spintech mufflers exiting through the correct stainless tips. The rockers were professionally done by Gateway Classic Mustang, with JBA ceramic coated mid length headers.
Correct Eleanor PSE wheels 17×8 with Z rated 245/40 17 tires, correct Eleanor pop open side fill gas cap with functioning side fill kit. Shelby GT500 emblems adorn the fenders, dash and tail light panel with Shelby style hood pins.
The cost to build such a dream machine like this should cost more than the opening bid with all the work and design that has been installed into this fine car.
