Restomod Mustangs aren’t exactly a rarity these days, but there are still plenty of cars that stand out from the crowd. Whether it is the cost, engine setup, or loving adoration - there are still ways for an old Mustang to stand out like a new car. One such Mustang is the GT690 W Anaconda.

One of these snake-named Mustangs has made its way on to eBay.

The Anaconda is not “new” per say, but only 21 of these snakes have been built. One reason is that they cost in excess of $200,000; certainly not pocket change for a 40 year old car. But with legendary car designers Gene Winfield and Leonard Compton, you get one hell of a Mustang. The entire car, based on either ’67 or ’68 Mustang fastbacks, is done over from top-to-bottom, starting with the functional air scoops on the hood. They both intake cool air, and extract heat, allowing the 32-valve 4.6 liter supercharged motor to stay cooler and breathe easier.

The engine is completely forged with aluminum Probe pistons, rods, and forged steel crank. This version of the engine makes 690 horsepower; the “Python” edition features a 5.4 liter motor making just south of 800 ponies. Backing these motors are a 6-speed transmission with a Centerforce 11” clutch. 3.50 gears in the 9” rear end provide a nice balance between performance and driavability, though other gears are optional.

On the interior, Corbeau seats replace Ford stockers. A 200 MPH speedometer and 10,000 RPM tachometer are likely more than you’ll ever use, but they sure look cool. A 4-point roll bar, Kenwood sound system, and cupholders round out the interior, though there are many other options available. Worth $200,000? I think for a Mustang like this, you could hardly do better.
