A few weeks back I introduced you to Damians 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Eleanor project. I didn’t have too many details on the project except for the photos. Well Damian has kept good to his word and sent throguh a breakdown of what the car will be running plus a few new photos! Check all the infor out after the jump.
So as you know there aren’t too many Eleanor‘s over here in Australia and it’s not too often you get to see videos of them on youtube. So this week I was pointed in the direction of these two videos. Which are taken in Australia and by the number plates I can see it is in the same state I am in. Check out both videos after the jump.
As I previously reported Toby’s car was going in for paint and my car was just about to head to the converters. Well I’ve just received a small update from John, my builder, as to what’s happening. Details after the jump.
I still get some great emails from readers of the site who have their own projects on the go and this one I received recently is one of the best.

It’s quite amazing how this site can bring all the Eleanor enthusiasts together, I never knew there would be so many so close to me.
It’s not every day you see vintage mustang’s owned by celebrities up for auction, I think the last one I saw was Sammy Hagar’s 1967 Shelby GT500 ‘Red Rocker’ . Here we have Bruce Willis’s 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible which was sold recently for a cool $161,000 USD. Now I wasn’t aware that Bruce was into vintage cars but there is a lot of things I don’t know about over here in little old Australia. Bruce does, or did, have a nice collection including a pair of Corvette roadsters (an original ’57 and a ’67 Stingray), a 1955 Chevy Nomad, a ’69 Dodge Charger and the piece de resistance, a 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible.
While my old girl is patiently awaiting the next big step in the restoration Toby’s project is slowly nearing completion. The latest news coming this week that Toby’s car has had all its body work completed and is now in the paint booth. We don’t know exactly how long the paint process will take as the painters working on
