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.

Why now? Though eligible for 10Best last year, [&hellip

Rich is the owner and administrator of www.militarystangs.com and is currently on military assignment, meaning he hasn’t seen his pony cars since May of 2012.
