Convertible 1967 Eleanor Shelby clone ?

  1. Not that I am a big fan of the Eleanor Fastbacks but have you seen the prices on these things. Has any one found a convertible 1967 thats some one has made into an Eleanor shelby clone. I know the movie was a fastback but you could get the same look make it a cross between that and the 1968 convertible KR 500 shelbys. I know 1967 verts are still pretty reasonable so the profit margin is HUGE.
     
  2. yes, you could make a lot of money. but are you willing to kill a mustang over a couple of dollars? personaly, i know i wouldn't...
     

  3. Well A 6 cylinder convertible and a junkyard V8 coup would do just fine.
    Not like I want to cut up a GT or S code for it. I was just wondering if it had been done yet.
     
  4. Mustangs and Fords magazine (I think) started to build one a few months ago (they called it "Elvira") and the preliminary sketches looked really neat. I've seen pics of a couple "phantom" '67 Shelby-style converts and really think they look good, too. I wouldn't count on selling one for fastback-size money though.
     
  5. I think Mustangs Plus is working on one.
     
  6. Its a company that is building a convertible, called Elvira
     
  7. Actually a guy from Florida named Phil owns a buisness , MPSS. I think his site is, www.rmautomotivespecialists.com From what I understand they have built the first Eleanor 'vert. And it did sell for Fastback $$.
     
  8. That is JME Enterprises. www.jmeenterprises.com

    They are building that car.

  9. Ah yea see and the vert looks just as good in my own opinion. I think I will stay with my car but one can always dream . If I had the money I would have a Fleet of mustangs but wouldn't we all HE HE.

  12. 1olpony-I've heard several horror stories about Pearson. Have you had any trouble out of them?
     
  13. Pearson Pony

    No big problems so far...............
     
  14. There's a guy who used to post regularly here naed "67vert", he was putting a modular DOHC in a vert with the eleanor nose but a Shelby hood. That Eleanore hood is widely hated from what I can tell, and for good reason (BLECH!).

    I am doing a restomod 67 vert but there's very little eleanor in her by my choice. I REALLY want to do an Eleanor paintjob but that is years away. Here's a couple of in-progess pics of my car...

  15. I have they same hood slated for my vert. No need to put a Wale hump in the middle of a nice hood.
