Found: A 1968 Shelby GT500 Barn Find

Monday, March 9th, 2020

Who says good barn finds are all gone? This just might be the ultimate find for the muscle car lover. A 1968 Shelby GT500 in true ‘barn find’ condition. The seller, who listed the car on Facebook, is asking $70,000 and claims it’s been with […]

I’ve been following these crazy Youtube builders for a number of years now, and I absolutely love what they are doing. My only wish was that they would tackle a Mustang one day. That day has come. This past week the guys bought a flooded […]

We’ve always been a massive fan of the team over a Classic Recreations having covered their builds over the years, hell, we even bought some gauges from them. This time though the Oklahoman-based builders have added another movie star to their stable with the 1969 […]

You may be asking what on earth is taking so long in getting this Shelby GT500 finished, after-all it has been a year since I last posted any update. Well to tell you the truth this past year has proven very difficult for us to […]

Final Bodywork Preparation Underway

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

This week saw the body finally move offsite to the bodyshop where it will be receiving the final work done in preparation for paint and then reassembly. Just to remind you about what happened. I made a decision a few years back to essentially scrap the Eleanor idea. Instead, I’ve decided to restore the car back to an original GT500, with a few tweaks. The car is now receiving some last body work and fitment of the GT500 body kit. Something I’ve been through before, years back with the Eleanor kit. Most of the Eleanor parts have been sold off meaning I haven’t lost out too much. Hopefully more frequent updates to come as over the last year we have bought SO many parts including a brand new 390HP Blueprint Crate engine, Tremec 5-Speed, performance fuel tank, MSD digital ignition, Holley Sniper, pulley kits and we even had Autometer create us some custom made Shelby Signature gauges, like the ones used on the original Unique Performance cars. I know I just bought the Classic Instruments versions though when the Autometer opportunity came up I just couldn’t resist! Stay tuned! © 2019, 67mustangblog.com. All rights reserved.

What a difference a week makes. Just a short update to show you what we’ve just got back from the powder coaters. I’ve just got the coated seats back along with the diff and rear seat panels. It’s all coming together quite quickly now. Still a long way to go and a lot of parts needing attention and assembly. As for these seats I’ve got a nice set of 1967 deluxe upholstery that is going to go on them. Also, i luckily managed to buy and store original 1967 hard seat backs in black with the trim, some will know how rare they are especially since they aren’t cracked. The one issue we’ve encountered is the listing wire. The original ones being far too gone to be reused so we’re having to look around to see if we can find any. If you know where to get some 1967 Mustang upholstery listing wires let me know. In the meantime, stay tuned! © 2018, 67mustangblog.com. All rights reserved.
