[READER RIDE] More Photos and Videos From Dave’s Movie Correct Eleanor Mustang

We’ve previously shared some of the best photos we’ve ever seen of an Eleanor creation and still to this day we have not encountered a better example of a movie correct Eleanor Mustang. This week Dave got back in touch with us to share some new photos, a couple of videos and a funny story about a run in with law enforcement.

Dave’s story is an inspiring one. It shows with a lot of hard work a movie correct car is possible. Though for those who don’t have an Eleanor or are going down a different restoration path we can still marvel at these pictures. One you may notice taken from a boom attached to the car shows a law enforcement vehicle blocking Eleanor’s path. When we spoke to Dave he jokingly shared the story with us.

Some lady drove by us with the camera rig on the car and assumed we were “up to no good”. Naturally the car being the attention whore that it was it turned into the cops taking pictures of it, haha. They loved the fact that I run the California black plate (the car is registered in NY to the tag LYN 274)

We’re told next month there is a professional video to be released. If the quality of the photos are anything to go off then we’re in for a real treat.

If you want to build a car similar or just want to see the detail Dave has gone to you can check out his build thread HERE. It is a must for any Eleanor builder.

Thanks to Dave for sharing this with us.

[READERS RIDES] Dee’s 1967 Raven Black Mustang Fastback – Almost Done!

Last time we checked in with Dee on is 1967 Raven Black Fastback he had the body kit fitted and was preparing the car for paint. That was almost one year ago. Now the car is almost completed and what a change one year and a lot of hard work makes.

Dee has been working extremely hard to have the car finished in record time and you can see from the pictures below how much that hard work has paid off. It looks great. The paint scheme is looking great and can imagine how much of a head turner this car is going to be. Take a look at the photos from our first post here and see the transformation.

Thanks to Dee for sharing his passion with us.

Don’t forget, if you have a project you wish to share with us. Please email 67mustangblog (at) gmail.com

[READER RIDE] Dave’s Gone In 60 Seconds Eleanor Mustang

Something I promised myself when I began my Eleanor project that was I would try my hardest to have the car look as close as possible to the movie car. I’m still a long way off yet as you all know but it’s really exciting when you come across another project that has gone down the same route. That’s just what Dave has done. [Read more…]

Earn a dollar whilst doing what you love. Driving your dream car! [Read more…]

I’ve seen some amazing projects this year alone, I’ve just not found the time to post about all of them. This project is something special though sent in by Christopher who is building his own 1967 Super Snake Fastback. [Read more…]
