Take an original fastback Mustang in a pre-renovation condition, buy piles of parts, work about 3.000 hours on it and you have a unique piece, which is like saffron in Europe and even less in this quality! Unfortunately, it is never that simple, for a project of this type, ie the restomod type with the input "everything new and only the best", it is even more complicated in reality. Challenging finances, nerves and patience. For this project, the designers and mechanics, who got through all the difficulties did an excellent job. Although not as fast as we originally planned, but with more emphasis on quality and detail. The project did not go the so-called Eleanor path (Shelby Mustang adaptation for the film Gone in 60 seconds), because it is already becoming a light cliché. The inspiration for this renovation / construction was the original Shelby Mustang GT 500 1967 and similar modifications of classic Fastback Mustangs from ClassicRecreations from the USA, which we supplemented with some better technical solutions (body reinforcement, brake system solutions, chassis components, interior safety: frame, etc.). The body was completely sandblasted, boiled, weaker places (meaning the original solution from 1967) reinforced with thicker material, or reworked. TotalControl chassis, ridge steering, Wilwood 6-piston brakes at the front, 4-piston at the rear, 427 cui V8 engine built by KeithCraft Performance with 580 HP, manual 5-speed transmission Tremec TKO 600, body kit, mufflers and other components from MTF, on custom-made interior, polished discs made to measure Cobra VN427 from AmericanRacing, pneuNitto NT 555 G2 and more and more delicacies. The ride and especially the sound of this Mustang with exhaust ends on the sides are unrepeatable and the combination of dark blue metallic with racing stripes in white mother-of-pearl is beautiful.
The car has driven some 2.500 kilometres since its completition.
