132879 / 1967 Ford Mustang Eleanor GT
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7rvqn75 From its professionally built 428 Cobra Jet V8 to its pristine Shelby interior and actual Cinema Vehicle Services body kit, this 1967 Eleanor GT is the ultimate dream car for any Ford fanatic, major movie buff or hardcore gear head! The build of this highly accurate Eleanor began with a trip to Cinema Vehicle Services, the same company that produced all the exterior pieces for the actual movie cars, where the owner purchased one of their complete, limited edition body kits. Once that kit was secured, Johnnie Cate Hotrod and Custom in Alcoa, Tennessee began a frame-off rotisserie reconstruction which stripped the car down to bare metal, completely restored its panels and covered its body in a smooth coat of Dupont 44490 Pepper Gray Metallic and Dupont 44435 Black Metallic. Pull the hood pins on this sinister Mustang and you'll find a lethal 428 cubic inch Cobra Jet V8 which has been bored .030 over and professionally rebuilt by Dwight Powell of High Performance Ford Engines in Dahlonega, Georgia. At the top of the jet black block, a coated Holley 4-barrel carburetor mixes fuel from fresh stainless fuel lines with air from a finned "Cobra" branded air cleaner and sends it into a correct 428 Cobra Jet intake manifold. At the sides of that black intake manifold, correct Cobra Jet heads, which were subjected to a performance valve job and equipped with hardened valve seats, are wedged between correct "Cobra" branded valve covers and tough TRW pistons that are wrapped in high quality Moly rings. At the front of that black intake manifold, a billet distributor sends spark from a Painless Wiring harness to fresh black plug wires which fire in sequence with a balanced rotating assembly that includes Clevite bearings, a Cloyes double roller timing set, a Crane hydraulic camshaft and hardened push rods. Cooling is provided by a Griffin aluminum radiator which is equipped with a front mount transmission cooler, two electric fans, correct FoMoCo hoses and a billet overflow tank; and lubrication is provided by a Melling high volume oil pump. Behind the rowdy Ford motor you'll find a fresh C6 3-speed automatic transmission, which was bolted in by Jonnie Cate Hotrod and Custom, in front of a professionally built driveline that was tweaked and finished by Street Rods by Michael in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Most of the actual movie cars were equipped with automatic transmissions, despite the chase sequence displaying a 4-speed car, and this Eleanor's stout C6 does a fine job of turning the engine to break neck speeds. However, RK Motors Charlotte will be happy to install a hydraulic clutch and a 5 or 6-speed manual of your choice for only $6,500. Whatever the drivetrain, an adjustable Air Ride Technologies Shockwave Level II suspension which utilizes blue Chassis Works tubular control arms and Wilwood four wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors is in place provide the kind of driving athleticism that can out maneuver anyone who might provide chase. At the corners of the car, correctly finished 17 inch PS Engineering wheels are wrapped in sticky 245/45 front and 245/40 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 radials. Open the car's Pepper Gray Metallic doors and you'll find a high quality vinyl interior which would look right at home in an authentic Shelby Mustang. At the center of the car, tightly pleated bucket seats sit at three sides of a traditional Cobra branded console which holds a small adjustment panel for the cars air ride suspension in front of chrome B&M Quick Silver shifter. At the front of the car, a spectacular looking black and silver dash holds Classic Instruments gauges above controls for the cars Vintage Air system and an MP3 compatible Custom Autosound stereo that rumbles through Boss Audio speakers. And in front of the driver, a polished aluminum and wood rimmed Lecarra steering wheel is bolted to a Flaming River tilt steering column. And behind the cockpit, a fully finished trunk houses a Fuel Safe fuel cell below hardware for the cars suspension system and a Taylor aluminum battery box. If you're looking for an instantly recognizable classic that's an absolute blast to own, this is your kind of car!
