Features

1967 Mustang “Eleanor” Restomod s/n 102105, which started life as a 1967 Mustang convertible before the “Eleanor” Restomod updates. Over the last five years s/n 102105 was built without regard to cost and was treated to the best of today’s performance updates, including a Keith Craft 351 Windsor engine bored and stroked to 408 cid with an Eagle steel crank and connecting rods, Victor aluminum heads, all topped off with an intake Edelbrock manifold and an Imagine Injection Products billet machined 8-throat throttle-body induction system, dyno tested by Keith Craft at 500 hp with 475 ft/lbs of torque at the flywheel. Cooling is through a lightweight and highly efficient A1 aluminum radiator and engine oil cooler. Engine management is handled by a Motec 8400 engine management system with dual lambda sensors and a Sakata Motorsports custom wiring system with individual coil pack ignition. Fuel comes from a stainless steel gas tank and all new fuel lines. Power goes through a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed Gear box topped off with a Hurst shift, and power is put to the ground through a Total Control Products push-rod 3-link rear suspension with a Watts link assembly and double-adjustable VariShock coil-over shocks, backed up with a 9″ center-section to control the massive horsepower and torque. Steering is by a Total Control Products rack and pinion power steering conversion which acts as a rigid front reinforcing cross member. The adjustable steering column is also from Total Control Products. The McPherson Strut front suspension is by QA1 Products and the front springs are Eibach. Brakes are Shelby fully vented discs with aluminum calipers and an ABS Systems electric power brake and booster. The power is put to the pavement through 8″ x 17″ front and 9″ x 17″ rear Unique Performance wheels and BF Goodrich G-Force T/A 245/40/ZR 17 91Y front and 275/40 ZR 17 98Y rear tires.

Under-hood accessories include ceramic coated headers, Global West front strut tops and control arms, Concept 1 serpentine brackets and pulleys and a Powermaster alternator and starter. Starting is through a fail-safe dual battery system. The engine bay is stiffened up with a Summit Products cross brace. All new white face gauges are by Shelby and modern A/C keeps the cockpit cool. 1967 Mustang RestoMod s/n 102105 was treated to a rotisserie restoration with all body work, paint work and interior work done by Don Berry Classics to a very high standard. The “Eleanor” body kit is topped off with Hella fog lights, a custom bar grille, hood pins, a Nascar style fuel door, racing seat belts and an integral roll bar. The Motec engine management system, all sorting work, dyno testing on the Dynapack rolling chassis dyno and detail work was done by Rod Drew’s F.A.I. at a cost of $32,909.74. Horsepower at the rear wheels on the Dynapack rolling chassis dyno was an impressive 376.9 hp with 395 ft/lbs of torque at 95 to 113 mph. Registered, titled and plated as an original 1967 Mustang, 1967 Mustang RestoMod s/n 102105 is smog exempt in virtually any state. This car is extremely well sorted, regardless of cost, and has the power and performance Muscle car owners could only dream of when new! Built at a total cost of over $225,000, 1967 Mustang RestoMod s/n 102105 is offered at far below the cost of construction (and also below the cost of just the hard parts).
