Location: Scottsdale, Arizona (Nothing like trying to keep a vintage Mustang cool in 115 degree heat.)
I was checking that out too. I wouldn't pay 95 grand for it either, especially in this economy. Well, that, and I don't have 95 grand. Ha!
I can respect the way they did that car, because it was done with a shell. If it were an original Fastback, I'd have a heart attack.
1968 Mustang coupe, bought in August '11 (second '68 I've had), .302, Candy apple red, standard black interior, A/C, built in San Jose, California, first registered in October '68. She's mostly original, but has been restored somewhat over the years. Minor tweaks forthcoming.
The speakers/door panels are available on www.mustangstofear.com. I intend on using their one piece headliner & upper console assembly to ease installation and for the extra headroom. Pricey, but nice.
1967 K Code GT Fastback
1985 SVO (A lil' over the top)
1992 LX 5.0 Convt
2005 Mustang GT
2010 Ford Flex (Wish the wife had opted for the twin turbo)
To me, the fact that it's an 'Eleanor' would drop its value about half if it were a real Shelby. Since it's not a Shelby, it's worth (to me) a little less than what a restored fastback would be since I'd have remove all that body stuff and have it repainted.
I know everyone has their own tastes (and no offense to the Eleanor guys) but I keep thinking that in 20 years people are going to say 'why did they do this to all these nice fastbacks and what was that silly movie called?'.
