This car is an original 68 1/2 R code GT as verified by a Marti report. We are not sure of any pertinant race history but this car was a drag car when the current owner purchased it 3 years ago. It has undergone a complete restoration over the last 3 years.
The 428CJ motor and 4 spd. tranny have both been professionally rebuilt. This car was not rusty but both quarter and wheel houses had to be replaced do to racing modifications. The fenders and doors were not rusty. The floors and frame were not rusty but the floors were replaced because of drag racing modifications. All the typical restoration type of work was done including ,but not limited to brakes, fuel and brake lines, complete interior, headliner, gas tank, and windshield. As i'm sure you realize, it's hard to list everything. The paint is the Beautiful "Pepper Gray" with Black metallic stripes . It also has the 9" rear end with 3.50 traction loc and 31 spline axles with staggered shocks.
The owners decision to build this car into an Eleanor was done prior to the increase in demand and value of a stock "R" code and Shelby. At the time the "Eleanor " was one of the most sought after Mustangs The owner did not cut into the car for the side exhaust and upper fuel inlet. This car could be converted back to a stock 1968 1/2 easily.
Its hard to imagine what this car would bring at Barrett Jackson's Arizona Auction. What a combination. The "Hemi Killer" 1968 1/2 brought $475,000 plus fees at the most recent B-J auction and the Eleanors brought $100,000 plus. Is there a better combo?
The Eleanor parts used on this car were the highest quality available and has the correct PS Engineering wheels. All PIAA lights are functional. The original cluster was replaced with a Dakota Digital and is fully functional.
Actual mileage is unknown.
