It’s been too long between posts so to get things moving again I thought I’d share with you this amazing restomod that recently sold on eBay. It’s a 1967 Fastback that has been restored to resemble a 1967 Shelby GT500 and boy does it look amazing.

The car was built by a team at Pro Touring Super Cars who are a division of Speed Inc. The project had no expense spared and as you can see from the pictures it looks immaculate throughout.

The builders claim it wasn’t just all new parts that were added. They paid special attention to the bodywork too. “Gaps were adjusted until they were far better than the factory could ever manage, and the hood was finished to levels that nobody at the Shelby factory could have imagined was possible in 1967.”

The engine was upgraded to a supercharged 2004 Cobra block delivering around 444bhp and about 495 pounds of torque. “It also features a custom induction system to fit it into the 67’s engine bay. There’s a smaller pulley on the supercharger to up the boost (these engines with their forged bottom ends can easily handle a lot more boost than the factory permits), and a custom Aeromotive fuel system to ensure that it is adequately fed at all speeds.”

Coupled to that engine is a T56 with Centerforce DFX clutch and hydraulic conversion. Overall as I said the car has had no expense spared. Too much to list in-fact. But take a look at the photos. This car puts a smile on my face.
