Specification

 

Regardless of your automotive interests the words "Ford" and "Mustang" are as about as synonymous as "Salt" and "Pepper". The godfather of the affordable, front engined, V8 muscle car; a silhouette as instantly recognisable as that of the Eiffel Tower and a cult following the likes of which are rarely seen.

Launched in 1964, the Mustang was projected to sell 100,000 units in the first year; in reality this figure was met within 3 months, they would go on to produce a further 318,000 cars during the model year and staggeringly over 1,000,000 units would be delivered within the first 18 months of production. To say that this car would take the automotive world by storm is an understatement of the highest order.

Carroll Shelby was an early adopter of the Mustang as a tuning Platform and saw the creation of a number of the most revered and feared Muscle cars to have ever rolled off of a production line. Famous for a creating the legendary GT350's, GT500's (among others) Shelby would go on to further his already legendary name to the point that upon releasing the 5th generation mustang Ford would use Shelby's name to denote their in-house highest performance variants of the cars they produced.

The car we're offering is a 1968 model with one previous owner in the UK. In 2013 the car benefitted from over £70,000 worth of work in order to bring it up to mechanical scratch and to finish it in the style of the highly revered Eleanor Mustang from 'Gone in 60 Seconds'.

Eleanor in the 2000 remake of the 1974 classic was depicted as a Shelby GT500 finished in Dupont Pepper Grey with Black Stripes.

The work was extensive and most notably consisted of the replacing of the engine with a Ford 512 ci Racing engine, which is rated at 725hp out of the box; as well as a Tremec T56 Gearbox equipped with a 26 spline input shaft and a 31 spline output shaft and is rated to handle 700lbs./ft of Torque. In the boot you'll find a disconnected Nitrous Oxide system, as well as a missile-style safety switch marked "NITROUS" on the centre console.

The car we're offering has presence that few cars can even allude to having. The level of performance for the money is not an opportunity to be missed!
