The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford
Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 through to
1970. For 1967. the GT 350 carried over the K-Code high performance
289 with a 'COBRA' aluminium hi-rise. The GT 500 was then added to
the lineup. These later cars carried over few of the performance
modifications of the 1965-66 GT350s although they did feature more
cosmetic changes. In September 1967. production was moved to the
A. O. Smith Company of Ionia. Michigan. under Ford control.
Immortalised in the film 'Gone in 60 Seconds' from 2000 starring
Nicholas Cage. the Shelby Mustang known as 'Eleanor' was the
ultimate 'steal' for Cage who played a retired professional car
thief who was forced back to work after his younger brother had
upset his rather unfriendly employer. Based on the 1967 Shelby
GT500 fastback. the 'Eleanor' was a modernised variant with serious
power and is considered by many to be the ultimate Mustang.

Imported from California in 2007. this extremely usable Mustang
has all duties and taxes paid. Just prior to its arrival in the UK. br/>it was restored by specialists in America and presents well. It has
been used by the current owner both in the US and UK on a regular
basis. Both husband and wife team have enjoyed numerous trips to
the Continent and reliability has always been one of its strongest
aspects. The colour scheme is black with grey stripes over a full
'Eleanor' body kit with the correct Shelby wheels and tyres. The
302ci motor delivers power through a four speed 'Hurst' manual
gearbox and a 9" rear axle. With all this power. the brakes have
also been uprated to discs delivering a good quality build (backed
up with a full one year MoT test certificate). thoughtful mechanics
and a temperament that is even enough to live with every day.
