Up for auction is a 1968 GT350/Eleanor restomod.

This car started its life at a REAL 1968 Fastback GT (not a chopped up coupe conversion like 1/3 of the "fastbacks" on Ebay - yes these are gettingharder and harder to find and the value has gone up year after year.)

I purchased this car about 2 years ago and have over $25,000 in receipts which will be included.

I am only selling it due to the upcoming birth of a new child and sadly Ebay will not let me sell the child.

Car has a C6 automatic transmission and Ford 9 inch rear end. Truck is very solid, as are all rails and torque boxes. This car would be considered a high end driver, not a show car. (That said, it did win Best of Show at both shows I put it in!) I have been very meticulous with any repairs and love this car to death. In my opinion it has the best of both worlds, GT350 and Eleanor styling. The orange stripping REALLY makes this car stand out.
If you are looking for an amazing car that continues to climb as an investment, that you can take to shows and still drive. This is your puppy. Its 50% of the way to a sick GT350 or GT500 Eleanor, or leave it be and have fun.
Please ask ANY and ALL questions PRIOR to bidding. I am happy to give truthful answersto the best of my ability. Also you are stronglyencouragedto see the car in person BEFORE bidding. Sold AS-IS, where is. ALL SALES FINAL.
COMMON QUESTIONS
Q: Why are you selling the car?A: I have a new child on the way. That's it. I love this car.
Q: Do you have a Marni report?A: Nope, sorry.
Q: Was the car ever in any accidents?A: Not since I have owned it and not to my knowledge.
Q: Do all the lights, windows, turn signals, locks etc work?A: Yep, everything works as it should.
Q: Does the car have AC?A: No, and it gets hot as heck in there too, especially in FL.
Q: Do you have a clean title in hand?A: Sure do
Q: Would you financeme?A: Sorry, not interested in financing anyone.
Q: Are you open to trades or partial trades?A: I would be open to a 360 Ferrari or a Lambo/Exotic kit with cash on top. But that'sit.
Q: Does the car leak fluid?A: Surprisinglyno. Almost all cars this old leak a little bit, but nope, Shes rock solid.
Q: Do you pics of the underside?A: Not aside from the one posted. Underside could use a cleaning, but its not hiding any issues per say.

Q: How are the brakes?A: They are fine. Stops as it should, no squeaking.
Q: If you were to keep the car what repairs would you do?A: Probably front shocks. Not sure if they need to be replaced or if the rubber bushings just need to be changed. Worse case senario $300-400 bucks. Other than that, I've spent 25k in the last 18 months with the intention of keeping her forever so there isn't much that can be done that I haven't already done. Also the paint is an 8 of 10. From 6 feet its flawless, but if you want to find a pinhole bubble here or there and a rock chip, you will. Likely I would repaint the car in 3-5 years, but its not really needed unless its going to be a trailer queen.
Q: What about rust?A: No significant rust anywhere. All been cleaned, cut and replaced.
