Time to fall in love/lust with one of the best restomods you\'ll ever find. Because while the exterior looks like a terrific tribute to a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 convertible, when you look closer, you\'ll see a custom A/C interior, a sweet fuel-injected crate V8, a five-speed stick, four-wheel disc brakes, an upgraded suspension, and all wrapped in a super-sleek package. So you get the best of an icon done so you can enjoy it with the best confidence and comfort.
When building a tribute car that surpasses the original, you must first make sure that the body outshines them. All the important stuff is here, including a fiberglass hood, hood pins, extended nose, quarter panel scoops, and well-integrated trunk lid spoiler. Some details are done to look vintage, like the racing lights in the grille, wide T-bird inspired taillights, and the snake-bitten gas cap. Other pieces are made to give you incognito upgrades, like how you have the classic looks of Halibrand-style wheels, but in a larger 17-inch size that allows you to fit better modern tires. It\'s a very mean-looking machine in every way, except the paint can\'t help but look bright and sunny. It\'s a quality application where the deep shine just loves to highlight the crisp lines of the well-fitting body. The aqua color will remind you of a day out on the beach. And not only do the GT500 rocker stripes look like the crest of this ocean wave, but they also look good against the white convertible top.
The investment didn\'t just stop with the exterior. You have a terrific-looking interior done in blue, white, and black. It has the fresh kind of look that will have you taking the power top down to show off far more than just the cool/aggressive roll bar. And this one also has the right upgrades for a great all-around driver. This starts with updated front seats that appear traditional, but really have modern bolstering to keep you better planted during cornering. In-between these buckets is a custom center console. It\'s comfortable for easy cruising with features like cold-blowing air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth. And it\'s built to be an awesome driver with a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column, a crisp Classic Instruments gauge package, and a Hurst shifter.
While this car celebrates some of the best classic Mustang and Shelby pieces, under the hood is something much more modern. It\'s a 306 cubic-inch Ford V8 by BluePrint Engines, and it\'s topped with an MSD fuel-injection system. There\'s also BluePrint aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. We even have the dyno sheet from BluePrint showing this is a 384 horsepower dominator. This is also supported by the right pieces, like an MSD ignition, billet hood hinges, cast Cobra valve covers, an Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator. You have complete control over this sound and the fuel-injected V8\'s fury thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Out on the road, this delivers a GT-level experience with the updated suspension with Global West components up front and traction bars in the rear. Plus, with power steering, grippy Michelin tires, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes, this is an all-around great driver.
So we can show you the restoration photos and build receipts on this one, but you already know how superior this build is. Don\'t miss out on this one-of-a-kind. Call now!
