1968 Ford Mustang Fastback GT500 Tribute
This Stunning and Ominous looking machine was the beneficiary of a full rotisserie restoration less than 10 years ago. Complete with molded body kit, bumpers, hood and scoop. Bathed in beautiful Night black Paint and accented with Peppercorn Gray racing stripe, which start at the bottom of the front body molded bumper and continue through to the body molded rear bumper panel. The Functional hockey stick cove is now a "vent" on both sides of the rear quarter, plumbed to cool the brakes. The B pillar Scoops are functional "vents” and connect to the interior rear roof vents to cool the rear cabin when opened. The grille is a simple horizontal multi bar design and flanked by Upgraded LED headlights. All of the insignia, badges and lettering that would tell you what this car was born to be have been removed and smoothed. The only galloping horses found on this beauty are now just under the hood. To keep this power house glued to the road are Shelby style wheels wrapped in low profile BFG radial tires.
Keyless entry. As you open the door you’ll notice the clean stainless metal panel inserts surrounded by black vinyl on the doors. The window crank has been replaced with power window switches. Keeping everything on the road is it’s beautiful polished aluminum and wood Shelby GT 500 (looking) steering wheel, attached to a stainless steel steering column (tilt). Bejeweled custom designed dash with white faced Autometer gauges and a field of more brushed metal, and sporting Carol Shelby’s signature. Vintage air AC, Pioneer stereo CD Player and Pioneer 6x9 speakers in the rear compartment. In front of the dash are (2) black leather high back bucket seats that are amazingly comfortable for any cruise or long chase through city streets. Keeping your butt in the seats are also full 5-point harnesses (seatbelts). The black Carpeting is nice and has no fading or staining. All panels and trim are clean smooth and black. The trunk is finished neatly in vinyl, carpet and bright trim. Also in the trunk, the Red Top Optima battery which has been placed there inside a protective metal box (painted to match the interior). Very useful but hopefully never needed is a two-point roll bar, tastefully in place.

A total rebuilt to star status muscle car, leaves us with a virtually new looking 1968 Mustang GT500, that spits power, makes great noise, and provides creature comforts with a dollop of NoS just in case. Beautiful color, AC, leather seats, high end build that wont be missed when you pass admirers. Hurry before its gone in a second.
