Difficulties Finding Shelby Parts?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

Maybe it’s me and my lack of knowledge of the industry? Or my lack of contacts and not being in the USA or maybe it’s the current global situation such as COVID19? Though over the last 6 months it’s been increasingly difficult to find certain […]

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 […]

Ford today released fresh details on the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang, including that the vehicle will be governed to 180MPH top speed. The 180 mph governed top speed may be disappointing to some but we have no doubt that the zero-to-60 and quarter-mile claims made by Ford — under 3.0 seconds to 60 mph and [&hellip

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.
