Pony car fans, have we got a cool 'Stang for you! Restored, Presidents blue
paint, 4 speed, rebuilt 289 and NICE hardware throughout, this car drives
as well as it looks!! This car is a great cruiser with a good amount of
power. These cars are simply timeless.
It was born and raised in North Carolina, and spend the majority of its
life there. In 2003 it was purchased and shipped up to Michigan where the
total restoration began. It was taken down to bare metal, painted,
converted to a 289 4 speed, and stored in a heated garage. It was only
taken out on the nicest of days. The previous owner is a long time painter
and does body work for dealerships.
Check out the flawless paint on this Pony! The paint color is called
Presidents Blue, which is the original color this car came in. The paint is
just stunning, and is accented by beautiful white striping down the sides.
This Pony is straight as an arrow, with beautiful margins and super clean
lips and jambs. The chrome bumpers on both ends are clean, as are the
badges and trim pieces. Magnum 500 wheels and Cooper Cobra Radial G/T's
(2-15-70-15 front, 2-35-60-15 rear) sit at all four corners. The car's a
heap of fun to admire, but get behind the wheel for what really counts!
Look underneath, where a lot of time and money were spent. Bolted to the
289 is a 4 speed Top Loader transmission, a recently painted and balanced
driveshaft and a bulletproof, open Ford 8" rear end. You'll find a new gas
tank, rebuilt springs and new shocks out back. The floorboards have no
patches, no undercoating and no rust holes, and are covered in a nice coat
of flat black paint. The frame is solid and rust free as well. The drop
down panels and rockers are solid and rust free. Exhaust gases flow into the dual Exhaust system with Thrush mufflers and chrome
Exhaust tips. There are SSBC front
disc brakes with a brake proportioning valve. The steering gear is new,
there are new bolts and new sway bar links. Up front you can see that there
is a new starter, new motor mounts, new shocks, new bushings and new ball
joints. Nothing flashy, nothing silly...just well engineered, quality
components are under here!
Pop the hood -- a ton of time and care went in here, too. You'll find a
super clean and beautifully painted 289 with a Holley carb, with vacuum
secondaries and electric choke, and an Edelbrock aluminum intake. The
chrome air cleaner and fend aluminum valve covers add some eyeball to the
motor compartment. The rebuilt radiator has new hoses. The alternator has
also been rebuilt and sits above a stainless steel harmonic balancer. There
is a new fuel pump, new solenoid and new SSBC power Booster and master cylinder. Everything from
the hood hinges and the underside of the hood, to the core support and the
inner fenders, has a very nice paint job. The combination runs well, and it
looks great, too!
Inside, you'll find a comfortable place to spend some decent miles. The two
tone blue interior looks fantastic. You're holding on to a very cool, new
Hurst shifter. Everything from the dash to the carpet, headliner to the
seat covers looks great. This is one comfortable and clean Pony! Ready for
a road trip?
We just had a 442 very similar to this: Black, built drivetrain, clean
cosmetics and a no-nonsense, drive anywhere demeanor. It lasted a whole
FOUR DAYS before it found a new home. Don't get caught out on this one --
there's no end to the line of people wanting a proven street brawler with
looks like this one!

Gateway Classic 1968 Steve McQueen Signature Mustang
BOURBON, Mo. -- March 15, 2011-- Gateway Classic Mustang, the premier manufacturer of
high performance vintage Mustangs, announced the start of
production for its Limited Edition 1968 Steve McQueenTM Signature Mustang. Gateway Classic Mustang teamed up with the Steve
McQueen estate to design and build the car in honor of the legendary
Hollywood actor and racing enthusiast.
"This Mustang build
combines the classic body styles of the late '60s Fords with contemporary
performance technology to deliver a fantastic driving experience," said
Jason Childress, co-owner of Gateway Classic Mustang. "Each of these limited
edition Steve McQueen cars are hand-built by our team at Gateway Classic Mustang. The car's design was
based on the famous ride driven by McQueen in his 1968 film, where he
starred as a no nonsense San Francisco cop."
Powered by a Roush 450 horsepower small block, the
Highland Green car generates 27 percent more power than its famous
predecessor. Standing on an adjustable strut coil-over front suspension
with power rack and pinion steering coupled with a three-link adjustable
coil-over rear suspension with watts link, the car is as comfortable on the
race track as it is on the street.
The Mustang begins with a
1967 or '68 original Ford body and comes with a Keisler five-speed manual
transmission coupled to a Hydraulic clutch. BFGoodrich tires surround the
five spoke American Racing wheels, while Baer 12" front disc brakes and
Baer 11" rear disc brakes bring the car to a halt.
"The car is symbolic of Hollywood's greatest chase scene in which McQueen
performed majority of the stunt driving," added Childress. "A limited
amount of Mustangs are
being built with the Steve McQueen signature and specs. Each vehicle is
numbered and signed and released on a first-come, first-served basis."
The interior of the vehicle is dressed in its original '68 features with
updated black components, including a Gauge package with tachometer by
Classic Instruments. A carpeted fold down rear seat and original style lap
seat belts add to the overall atmosphere of the 'Stang, while custom
bolstered original style front bucket seats are also available in the
vehicle by TMI.
Air-conditioning by Classic Auto Air adds to the comfort of the car, while
an AM/FM/MP3 stereo blares through a six speaker amplifier. Extreme sound
deadening is supplied by Dynamat and stops road noise, vibrations and car
rattles, while improving the car audio's sound and bass.
"Steve McQueen pushed life to the limit and we modeled this car after his
bad boy persona," noted Childress. "We're honored to celebrate the life of
McQueen through our Mustang."
Gateway Classic Mustang is
currently taking orders for the limited edition pony car. Those interested
should visit www.gatewayclassicMustang.comor call 573-732-3541.

2011 Mustang GT Borla Exhaust
This Mustang GT uses Borla
S-Type Catback Exhaust.
Sorry. Recorded at a parking lot, there was not enough road to accelerate
as it should be.
Thanks to BMC Extreme Customs (creators of the Black Mamba Hood)
This Stang is a 2011 5.0 manual V8 (don´t get confused with the different
emblems my car has) and I got inspired mostly on the 2010 Shelby GT 500
Thanks for watching and for all the major positive comments.

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE

audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
