Introduction



This project was commissioned by a private customer in 2018. 

The remit was to build a GT500E / Eleanor themed Mustang fastback, with customised styling, using many upgrades available in the aftermarket.  The aim was to produce a one of a kind vehicle, with high attention to detail, high quality of parts, reliable, and of course, safe.



A 1967 Ford Mustang fastback was sourced for the client, and imported to SCM premises in the UK to begin the bespoke restoration of this beast.

Exterior The exterior of the car was fully metal finished before moving forward into the body and fibreglass stages. 

To make this a solid, metal car, it is common for new panels to be required to replace corroded or damaged panels that have been subject to 50+ years of entropy.



This particular Mustang received:



• LH Floor

• RH Floor

• Upper Cowl

• Lower Cowl

• Firewall

• Rear Frame Rails

• RH Inner Fender Assembly

• LH Inner Fender Assembly

• Radiator Support

• Frame Rail Extensions

• Roof Skin

• Seat Platforms

• Rear Trunk Brace

• RH Door Assembly

• LH Door Assembly

• RH Fender

• LH Fender

• Rear Valance

• Shelby GT500 Taillight Panel (in Steel)



The sheet metal used was sourced and supplied through Dynacorn and Muscle Car GT, via Magnum Car Panels in the UK. 

The sheet metal quality is superior to the reproduction parts originating in the USA, and the metal finish on this 1967 Mustang is perfect.



Upon completion of the metal work and panel alignment, the body was coated with epoxy primer, to seal and preserve the metal beneath. 

The epoxy substrate provided an excellent base to begin the fibreglass work, to create the iconic GT500E / Eleanor vehicle.  The body kit was sourced from Mustangs to Fear in the USA, and is believed to be the best fitting body kit available for this type of conversion.



The parts included:



• Low Rise Eleanor Hood

• One Piece Eleanor Nose

• Front Fender Arch Flares

• Lower Rocker Moldings with Side Exiting Exhaust Cut Outs

• Rear Quarter Arch Flares

• Trunk Lid

• End Caps

• Bumper

• Lower Brake Scoops

• Upper Brake Scoops



With the body kit fitted into place, it was bonded with 3M Panel Bond (08115) to secure the various panels to the vehicle.  The epoxy base also provided an excellent base to adhere to.



The vehicle was primed using another high build epoxy primer, before being painted with a high quality, direct gloss black paint, which was used as a show coat / pre-paint, to identify where any additional body work may be required, in order to have the panels smooth and flat for a glossy finish.  Once the exterior body work was complete, the vehicle was painted using Glasurit base coat, with a specific formula for the colour.  From Morelli UK, the paint was custom made and supplied to SCM for this 1967 Mustang.  The paint information is as follows: More on paint colour, stripes, method, and paint codes.



As SCM restorations are thorough, the inside, underside, and engine bay were also prepared and thoroughly painted on a rotisserie for a premium finish to this car.  This is in order to aid the car to withstand another 50+ years of use.



More information:



• Vehicle assembled to a 360 degree Rotisserie

• The underside was seam sealed, and prepared, before being coated with a sound deadening, water proofing underseal

• The underseal is overpainted with a Urethane based two component paint, with Satin Black finish

• Both the interior and engine bay were also prepared and coated with a urethane based two component paint, finished in Satin Black.



The exterior was fully detailed with premium parts, including:



• Lighting – full lighting supplied by Mustangs to Fear, built for the body kit, with excellent fit.

• Billet Grilles – both upper and lower grilles, perfectly fitted for the body kit

• Custom stripes – a three stripe design is painted on the lower door edge and roof / top side

• New Glass – all glass is smoked, and brand new with all new weatherstrip

• Hood Pins – Quik Loc hood pins used, requiring simple ‘push to release’



Interior



The interior also received full attention and restoration, to create a bespoke, clean, and comfortable inside space. 

The floors and panels were prepared and painted in satin black, prior to using Dynamat sound deadening panels throughout, plus additional foam insulation, before the high quality carpets were installed.



The wiring loom used to provide reliable electrics to this Mustang is from American Autowire, and is a kit designed to upgrade the 1967 Mustang.  It is 100% new throughout with all new switches, controls, relays, etc.  The loom is fully immersed in the vehicle and controls everything – full notes have been made about any modification, for it to connect with the EFI, Air Conditioning, modern ignition, sound system, etc.



Recaro supplied the front seats for this Mustang, creating a retro yet modern feel for the car.  



Deluxe trim was used to dress the dash, instrument bezel, door panels, etc.  This is a Mustang feature and one that is specific to the 1967 model year.  Convenience items have also upgraded the interior.  The console was created out of a blank, with custom leather, and two additional gauges measuring oil temperature and voltage.



NVU supplied the gauges for this car, which include new digital units:



• Speedometer

• Tachometer

• Fuel Gauge

• Water Temperature Gauge

• Oil Pressure Gauge

• Voltmeter

• Oil Temperature



The steering column was replaced for a custom rack and pinion unit from Flaming River.  It has a tilt function and modern components internally.  Attached to this is a custom Moto-Lita steering wheel, one of a kind.



All of the rear interior panels are from Mustangs to Fear, and modernise the feel of the rear space over the 1967 design.   These panels are custom fitted, all painted in satin black, and feature speakers moulded into the sail panels.  These panels also surround a discrete Roll Bar, for aided stiffening of the body.



The heat and AC are provided via Vintage Air, for a system that fits perfectly within the 1967 Mustang, using the original style controls for digital operation.



Everything on the interior is new, including:



• Headliner

• Side Windows

• Electric Power Windows

• Door Locks & Rods

• Dash Pad

• Door Panels

Engine & Gearbox



The Jewel in the Crown of this 1967 Mustang GT500E, is the Roush Performance engine, that was ordered through Roush directly, and built by Roush for this project.  The engine chosen is the Roush 427 SRXE model, which is the 351 based Windsor engine, stroked to 427 cubic inches of displacement.

The 427 SRXE is a fuel injected version of Roush Performance’s 427.  The EFI system used is from the FAST company.  Fuel Injection provides an efficient, self managing, fuel supply to the engine, requiring electronic upgrades to the car in order for it to work.



Taken from the FAST website, the EFI benefits include:

• 1200 HP-Capable Throttle Body w/ Integrated Fuel Injectors, Sensors & Rails

Mated to the Roush 427 SRXE, is a Tremec T56 Magnum Gearbox with a close ratio.  The T56 is a 6 speed manual gearbox, capable of 700 ft-lbs of force, with gears featuring increased face widths and 2-piece laser-beam welded construction, allowing for greater control of the tooth angles, pitch and alignment.



The gearbox was assembled with premium parts, exceeding the performance required / intended use so that it would be more than capable of handling all of the power produced by the engine, and allowing for additional power increases in the future.  The parts supplied were purchased through American Drivetrain in the USA, which are a specialist in drivetrain and performance parts.  These parts included: List spec of clutch, etc



A Wilwood Hydraulic clutch system was installed to modernise the feel of the clutch, improve the performance and lose the archaic clutch levers.
