1967 Ford GT500 Eleanor
Equipped with the best driveline, suspension and brake components that money can buy, this 1967 Eleanor Mustang is ready to rip the road up.
The heart and soul of this pony is a 427 Dart Iron Eagle block complete with a forged crank and rods, Weisco pistons, a custom ground cam, roller rockers, ported and polished heads, Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake manifold modified for EFI, 85lbs fuel injectors, 120 CFM throttle body, and electronic ignition. Really turning up the heat is a Paxton Novi super charger complete with custom fabricated intake and discharge tubes. The engine puts out a ground pounding 650 HP and comes equipped with a an additional pulley to increase HP to 800HP. Supporting the forced induction system are an adjustable blow off valve, Snow Performance boost cooler, and Fast XFI fuel injection. The motor is hooked up to a Tremec T56, 6-speed transmission which transmits power back through an aluminum drive shaft. The rear end is a built Ford 9" with 3.55 Posi gear and Moser axles. In 650 HP form this motor produces more HP than you will probably ever need, but how much is really too much? 800 Horsepower anyone?
All this power would be a sloppy mess without a suspension that could handle it. The Mustang is equipped with a front and rear coil over system with a Total Control rack and pinion system. She takes turns like a champ with minimal body roll and under steer. When it's time to stop, 4-piston front and rear Wilwood brakes haul the Mustang to a halt. Talk about brakes!
The interior is equipped nicely with a Shelby interior/gauge package, wooden Shelby wheel and high back bucket seats. Above the center console sits a custom stereo complete with navigation and a set of three gauges to monitor the boost performance. The seats are equipped with slick, racing type buckles and the Shelby roll bar is in place behind the front seat.
Built from the ground up and having covered just 1,500 miles since completion, why build one when this one is already done?
