Major update – PIAA lights installed, Front nose, Fuel filler!

1967 Ford Mustang Eleanor nose and hood Ok so it’s a pretty big update here as I have made one in a while. Firstly the rear panel is now glued in place and almost ready for the rear lights setup to start being installed, thankfully we haven’t had too many troubles with the back. The fuel filler tube is now finished and also ready to start going in. You can see we have added a steel breather tube whereas a lot of others use a rubber breather. I think it works better this way. Read on for the pics Now to the front. We’re finally happy with the fitting of the hood. Take a look at the pics and you will see it’s fitting really nice! finally! We’ve got most of the PIAA lights installed in the front and most are fitting nice, but take a look at the pictures with the lower valance off.. you can see the lower fog lights are not in line with each other.. this is to show you how out of whack these kits are! With the kit on they ‘look’ in line… but this is only because of the modifications that had to be done underneath. Everything seems to be going smoothly now. Our only hitches at the moment are the side exhaust tips. It seems with this Australian kit the holes for the tips don’t drop down as far as the American kits, so my Aeroform tips are coming out too low. So we’re going to have to cut these tips up! The second problem is the front headlights. Which are finally being shipped this week from the US, but more on that later. For now enjoy these. photos.

  1. Man can i buy that from you when you are done with it i already have a 1970 Chevy Chevelle, 1964 Chevy Impala SS, and a brand new 2008 Dodge Viper dude its fast. But i really want a 1967 Ford Mustang Gt 500. I can spare $70,000.

  2. hahah hey mate, I don’t think I could part with it for a very long time after the amount of time and money I’m putting into it. Thanks for the kind words though 🙂

  3. hey cameron i just wanted to know
    a 1967 shelby gt500, if it was in bad condition, how much it gonna cost me
    and do u think i can find one
    and how much money should i spend on to be an ELEANOR
    thanks

  4. Hey Khalil,
    Firstly if you were wanting to make yourself an Eleanor i would say never to use an original 1967 GT500… this would be sacriledge! heh
    I suggest looking for a standard 1967 or 68 Fastback in Australia. Try ebay, i’ve seen a few on there.
    I got mine from the states which landed in Australia cost about 20k and it was rust free in good condition.
    Make sure you have someone in the know look it over before you buy it as there can be lots of hidden problems.
    An Eleanor project is not cheap, so make sure you’re settled in for a long, expensive few years!
    hope that helps mate

  5. thanks man, i live in the states, ill try to find one on ebay
    u helped a lot man
    so it will be very expensive u say
    is it gonna cost me to be eleanor more than 100k
    i knnow i dnt have that much
    but i have a dream and passion
    i still 18, i can do it

  6. Being in the states helps a lot. just search ebay for a 1967 fastback and make sure you do your homework on it. I think you guys have things called Titles? we don’t have them here but i think you need to ensure it’s clear or free or something?
    Check for rust, also if ther car has had any prior accidents, all this can be hidden. i suggest going to this forum and asking the guys there for info.. most are in the states and would help you so much. The forum helped me a great deal.

    As for price, well you can go mild or wild, you can really spend any amount. so i can’t say really. But you’re young, if yu start early and stick with it then you will get there. i was around the same age when i started mine. it’s been long but it’s slowely coming together.
    Good luck with it mate.
