Very impressing. Is it a real Shelby or a clone?
Can you send it to me in Canada for a few weeks? I can ask my wife if she wants to pose next to it  :lol:

Thank you for all the great comments.  Sorry to say it's a clone, but I was wanting a Shellby look with a custom edge.  It's still got a few step before I'll call it completed.  Sound sys, and alarm were installed today.  As far as sending it to Canada, I'd REALLY have to send it cause i'd never be able to afford the fuel  :-D

Thanks again!

There is nothing wrong about clone Shelbys and whatever how good the modifications are done, I don't think it would be a great idea to modify a real Shelby. Your car is beautifull, let me know when you can send it to me lol

Thanks for the encouragement.  It's been a nerve racking time the last month.  Just making sure it all comes together.  A few odds, and ends to take care of this week, and off to it's first show in Monrovia, California on the 30th of this month.  Got hold of a bogus Alternator, and am replacing, also bad fuel regulator.  So this weekend is busy, then time to start detailing top to bottom.  Will post more current photos soon.  This is my first Stang, from ground up.  The only items not replace durring the process were the original metal. and the blower motor for the heater, otherwise EVERY nut, bolt, and screw were replaced, and if seen replaced with polished Stainless Steel.

Thanks again,

Ray :-D

Thanks "GF" it's been a long 3 years of work to get it where it is now.  Here are a few photos of the completed motor, and interior.

I've had the car a little over 3 years.  I drove it a bit before starting the transformation.  It was stock blue when it started.  Then it went on to be a complete tear down.  Only things not replace were the heater blower motor, and wire harness.  Any bolt on top side that can be seen, was replaced with polished stainless, and complete drive train, power plant, paint/body work, interior reworked.  Thanks for the compliments, it's much appreciated.

This is for me the hottest Mustang ever submited here. I love the lowered look given by the suspensions. Can you tell more about the modifications made to the car?

First of all Thank you for the kind words. It is appreciated VERY much after pouring your heart into a project like this, and not knowing what reactions you'll get.

On suspension:
A Heidt's Mustang 2 front end was used with chrome coil over shocks, and chrome springs, Completely adjustable. A good friend of mine has a Mustang Restoration Shop (www.stang-aholics.com), and is a dealer, so that helped out greatly. Rear suspension is stock, with new springs, and shocks.

Motor:
The basic's are (I'm putting together a detailed list with all specs) 302 cid, Full Stroker to 347 cid. 9to1 compression, Demon 850 carb. Earl's Braided lines w/ Aluminum Anodized fittings.

Transmission:
Ford C4 rebuilt, and beefed up. Torque convertor by ITC torque convertors, as you can tell by the photo posted earlire it wont have a problem "Ballooning" under full throttle.

Exhaust:
Hooker headers. Pipes were done by "Newberry's in Visalia, California. We were able to incorporated electric "cut-outs" in the exhaust just past the headers, so everyonre else could enjoy hearing the motor as well. I have a small, but "Cheesey" video with sound that i'll post.

Won't take any more of everyone's time boring with other details, until later

How about a pair of ladies?  Blue belongs to a friend of mine who has a Mustang restoration shop.  It's a 67 347 stroker with a supercharger.

Just a brief update.

Hello to all, and thanks again for all the great comments.

I just found out that the mustang was accepted to go to the Sacramento Autorama in February 2007.  I was worried because it's by invitation only.  Now the work begins, alot of cleaning to do after driver her around for the past few months.  I can say though that it has been real fun. 0 to 105 mph in 100 feet, not bad, for a first time ground up restomod.

See you all later

Ray.

Thanks for keeping us updated. I am in contact with someone in Europe looking for a place to have an Eleanor clone or pro touring classic Mustang built for him.
Stang Aholics seems to be a very serious place seeing what they did to your Mustang.
