About This 1967 Shelby GT 500

As you can see, this is truly a one of a kind "Eleanor". There is so much detail in the car that you really must see it in person to appreciate all she has to offer. When I first saw the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" I knew I had to have this car. Eleanor has taken me 2 years to build and it was a long and rewarding process in which money was truly no object. This award wining car project started off as a spotless, rustfree Arizona car with all numbers matching. Since her restoration, Eleanor gets major looks wherever she goes, although she only has 8 miles on the odometer since her rebirth. Thanks to my Uncle Jim for some of the outstanding photographs of my baby. Anyone who needs the same caliber of work, contact Jim Schmelzer at Elite Photographic in Clinton Township, Michigan. 586-790-3686

THE BODY The entire body was media blasted and epoxy primed. All fiberglass pieces were molded with 3M Panel Bond. The entire body was then blocked and primed 3 times over until I knew it was absolutely perfect. Next came 2 coats of sealer and 2 coats of basecoat. Once baked and wet sanded, 2 more coats of basecoat were applied, then 4 coats of clear. A final wet sand and a wheel brought out the flawless finish you now see here. All this attention to detail speaks for itself when you see the car in person in ANY kind of light. The finish is second to none.

THE INTERIOR The interior is a nice mix between original and custom featuring an authentic Carroll Shelby autograph on the dashboard, hand stiched Carrol Shelby signature front seats and white face gauges. Billet aluminum pedals from Total Control Products and a custom T-handled shifter sporting the Shelby name finishes off an outstanding cockpit.

THE ENGINE 600 plus Horsepower doesn't come easy. Eleanor is powered by an SVO R-302 that has been balanced, blueprinted and stroked to 365 CID. Fuel is delivered by an 850 Barry Grant Speed Demon carburetor that sits on top of a ported and polished Eldebrock Victor Jr. intake and heads with titanium everything. A 150 HP NOS system pushes Eleanor's get-up-and-go to the extremes. Thanks to Lido at Alternative Performance in Mt. Clemens, Michigan for an outstanding job on a killer motor.

THE DRIVELINE All that power is run through a Tremec 600 5-speed manual transmission that can handle 1,000 HP / 1,000 Lbs of Torque. An aluminum driveshaft connects to a DriveTrainSpecialist's 9 inch positraction rear end sporting 4:10 gearing that can pretty much liquify the GoodYear 245 ZR 17's in a heartbeat.

THE SUSPENSION Eleanor takes on corners like a Mercedes due to a Total Control Products adjustable front and rear coil-over suspension package with the power steering option. Slowing her down is not a problem with 13 inch, 4 wheel disc brakes with ABS.
