LARRY'S LEGEND LIVES

Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

1982 Mustang GT

Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.

Classic Car Overview

1968 Ford Mustang GT500E Eleanor from Shelby Continuation Series

Professionally completed by Unique Performance in 2004, this build was one of

the first 20 authentic Shelby Eleanors produced and has since enjoyed many

upgrades. Registered in the official Shelby American Registry, it is to be noted

that this is an authentic Shelby Eleanor, not to be confused with simply a

registered Eleanor. There is a difference and it is good to know this difference

as it adds tremendous value to the vehicle. This vehicle comes with a full build

specification sheet from Unique Performance, is finished with a stunning pepper

gray paint job with black racing stripes, just like Raines famous Hollywood

unicorn. Complimenting the exterior is a spotless black leather interior with

wood and brushed aluminum accents. Powering Eleanor is a 351 Windsor V8

motor punched out to a massive 408 cubic inches. There are many

supercharged resto-mods but this naturally aspirated engine provides the

nostalgia and power of a true muscle car. The impressive motor is mated to a

brilliant Tremec T-56 manual transmission and the vehicle features include 4-

wheel disc brakes, power steering, fully functioning heat & A/C and much more.

The GT500 Eleanor is one of the most iconic Muscle cars in history. However,

finding an authentic GT500E Shelby Eleanor can prove to be a bit of a

challenge. This pony has been with the same collector for the past 15 years, has

been joyfully driven and gently broken in, and has finally come to market.



The 1967 modified Shelby Mustang featured in the year 2000 movie, Gone in 60

Seconds, was cited by Hot Rod magazine as being one of the top 100 most

influential cars of all time. Responsible for introducing a whole new demographic

of non-car people into the world of collector and special interest vehicles, it

also influenced a few custom car builders and fabricators to re-create the Famed

Eleanor to meet demands for the car generated by the Hit Movie. While there

were a few large companies producing Eleanor style mustangs on a tiered

package type program, few possess the engineering, quality of fabrication and

Shelby authentication than those of cars produced by Unique Performance.
