That is a very nice looking fastback. The mods are somewhat restrained and look great overall, especially with that fine color choice. I would to see it in person!

Thanks everyone for the kind words, much appreciated with all the thought, time, and effort that went into it. I met my goal of retaining the overall classic look and feel of the car while adding some personal touches that really appealed to me.

I agree with you on that for sure. I initially didn't care for the chin spoilers, but as the car was coming together I really thought it worked with what I was doing.

What you've done there I'd say is tasteful and respectful while also making it uniquely your own.
Nice job.
Eleanor a fad? 16 years later and still owning at auction. Don't think it's considered a fad when it's been built for 32% of the Mustangs total history and still going.
Anyways, I agree with you on this build. Tasteful, and made to order. Looks killer man. Enjoy racking up the miles.

What wheels did you end up going with? I've been looking for some in that style to black out.

It needed a custom made crossmember because none of the ones you can buy actually fit. Other than that, probably the hardest part was getting the US Shift Quick 4 controller installed, not quite as straightforward as it first appeared.
