NICE BUILD, DESIRABLE BODY STYLE/YEAR/ COLOR COMBO, 302 V8, 5SPD TRANS, GRABS ATTENTION EVERYWHERE!!
Here’s a cool 1968 Ford Mustang GT500 tribute fastback with expensive Eleanor and Shelby upgrades. Plus plenty of custom touches to make an influential standout classic, including a five-speed and side pipes growling for the V8.
The customization of this Mustang is apparent from every angle. It starts up front with the bold billet grille. We love how it looks almost seamless as it dips into the GT350R-style split front bumper. And you see even more great racing-inspired touches like the Hella lights, hood pins, and dual scoops. There are more Shelby-like air scoops on the sides, and the rocker body kit nicely integrates the side exhaust tips. And you’ve got the sporty rear with Thunderbird-inspired tail lights, a Shelby gas cap in-between, and a well-integrated three-piece rear spoiler. There are also some nice modern updates to classic pieces. You see it in the crystal clear tri-bar headlights and the Halibrand-style wheels that are modern 17-inch alloys. And when it comes to modern attractiveness, a peppered silver color with black racing stripes painted on top make for one of the most sought-after pony car styles of the last quarter-century.
The all-black interior has the right look for an inviting driver’s car. The headliner, carpet, and door panels all look good from a proper investment. You’ll also like the little things, like the sporty machine-turned dash panel and the full interior light package that greets you when the door opens. You know this one was built for you to enjoy the moment you spot the upgraded Recaro front bucket seats. Plus, other driver-oriented upgrades like a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, sports shifter, and crisp white-faced gauges. So while you have a nice upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, we bet your real favorite soundtrack comes from the side pipes.
The engine bay has a proper power-pony look with the long air grabber and matching ribbed Ford Racing valve covers. It earns this performance appearance with a 302 cubic-inch V8 upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, an MSD ignition, and JBA shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. It warms up to be a strong powerhouse, and you take complete control of it thanks to the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. There’s also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy modern sport tires for a solid driving package.
This GT500 tribute has a sharp style and a road-ready personality. That makes for the kind of car you’ll enjoy taking more places and being memorable everywhere you arrive.
