*** FIRST TIME OFFERED!! **** 

Here is a rare opportunity to own something truely unique, simply incredible. A Massive Boss style engine seperates this vehicle from the crowd of other Shelby/Eleanor Mustangs.

Originally born a standard C-code (289 2 barrel) 68 fastback, this Mustang has been transformed into a high-quality high performance Shelby style recreation with exceptional detailing throughout. Unlike many GT500 creators that use moderately sized engines with power adders this unique build focused on brute power in the form of a Massive 557cid Boss style engine. Power feeds into a 6-speed manual transmission with a steel scatter shield surrounding the high capacity clutch transmitting into a 9" rear with true-trac posi and 31 spline axles. Upgraded suspension, brakes, air conditioning system, bucket seats, heat and sound insulation and stereo system helps provide comfortable cruising.
