*SOLD* 1965 Mustang Fastback Eleanor Recreation*SOLD*
I will be more than happy to email SERIOUS people pics. I have too many pics to transfer from photo bucket to image shack. Send me a PM with your email and I'll send you direct link to pics.
I realize the economy bites and some people may not realize the time, effort and money it takes to build a car from the ground up. But there are those of you that will realize what it takes and knows that it's worth it. My only reason for selling is my wife and I are expecting our first little one and I rather pay off a few bills and be father ready.
Here's a small rundown on my fastback. I've worked on it for over 3 years and media blasted the entire car before I started, so there's absolutely no rust. I know this is not technically Eleanor, but it is unique being a 65 model. People always do a double-take when they see it and always call it Eleanor even though it's a 65 model. It has 77,xxx original miles on it and was a factory 289 4brl, C-4 car and has the Eleanor kit installed.
Engine: DSS 347 Stroker with all forged internals, 9.0:1 compression, billet main support system, Canton windage tray, Canton sumped oil pan, aluminum DSS pushrods, Comp custom grind hyd roller cam, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap endurashine intake, Holley HP750 carb, Total Control Products aluminum adjustable throttle linkage rod with heim joints on each end, MSD Billet Distributor, Ford Racing 9mm wires, Ford Racing billet aluminum wire separator plates, Aluminum 4 row radiator, Tuff Stuff chrome 100 amp one wire alternator, Ford Racing mini starter, TCI sfi flywheel, Romac sfi harmonic balancer, Reichard Racing timing pointer, serpentine belt setup. The motor, according to DSS Racing is 450-475 HP and will handle a 200 shot of spray like candy, if you like spray.
Heads: AFR 185's with aluminum DSS roller rockers, DSS aluminum valve covers
Exhaust: JBA titanium coated headers. These headers are the Shelby Tri-Y style and are stepped 1-3/4" to 1-5/8" to 2-1/2" collectors. Cutouts are welded in between the headers and in front of the mufflers. Magnaflow stainless steel mufflers dumped after the rearend.

Suspension: Total Control Products underhood tubular strut tower, monte carlo and braces all on heim joints, Total Control Products subframe connectors, Total Control Products X-Brace with drivesaft safety loop (bolts to the inside of left and right subframe connector literally X across the car for chassis stiffening), Chris Alston Chassis Fab 9 rearend with bakbraces, Strange nodular 3rd member with 31 spline Detroit Locker and 3.70 gears, custom built Denny's driveshaft with chromeoly yoke and 1350 joints, Calvert Racing split monoleaf rear springs, Caltrac traction bars, QA1 adjustable shocks at all 4 corners, Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes, Hurst line lock (plumbed into brakes, but not hooked up to an electric switch - never used)
Interior: Scat Procar seats with side bolsters, RCI 4 point harnesses, factory rear fold down seats with factory type black upholstery, new black carpet, new chrome door sill plates with Carroll Shelby tags, new headliner, new windshield, factory door glass and factory rear glass, Grant steering wheel, Autometer Sport Comp Monster 5 inch tach (same one as used in the actual Eleanor movie car), Autometer Sport Comp oil pressure gauge, Autometer water temp gauge (both mounted under dash), Painless wiring control panel mounted under dash for ignition, fuel pump, electric fan, front Eleanor lights

Optima battery relocated to trunk in Jegs battery box, Jegs cutoff switch between gas cap and right tail light.
I have the Eleanor fiberglass upper side scoops and the fiberglass lower rocker panels with side exhaust cutouts and will include them with the car. I didn't install the upper side scoops due to personal preference - I like the chrome vents on the upper panel of the 65-66 fastbacks. The lower rocker panel pieces can be installed, but the exhaust couldn't be made functional due to the suspension so I chose not to put them on.
I see the 67-68 fastbacks with the Eleanor kits go for $80,000 and up. I have almost $60,000 in mine not including time and labor, which we all know we never get back. As much as I love the car, it's time to let it go.
**I'm was asking $60,000 for the car and the Procharger D1SC kit I have for it. For the car alone I'm making a huge price drop.......$35,000 for car only.
**My loss is your gain. I know I'm not going to get exactly what I have in this car back, which is why I've significantly dropped the price. I want to sell this car and let someone else enjoy it. I'm prepared to lose a little on it for a quick sell, but I refuse to give it away. I realize most people don't have access to this amount of money. I will consider a trade plus cash to me. Trades considered will be FORD products only......I bleed Ford blue! Lol. Make some offers, you never know.
**Again......$35,000 for car only
