Originally built at Ford's Dearborn Michigan plant as a rare X-code Ford Mustang Fastback, this 1968 example has been completely restored as a custom Shelby GT500 tribute. It features a fuel-injected 429ci V8 engine with extensive performance upgrades along with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, 3.73 limited slip 9'' rear axle, Wilwood disc brakes, power steering, Heidts coilovers, and custom bodywork with functional side scoops. Said to have been completed after 10 years as a no-expense-spared restoration, this one-off Mustang Fastback custom is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Rhode Island.

This Mustang Fastback is said to have been fitted with new single-piece floors and frame rails during its restoration as well as new quarter panels, inner fenders, wheel wells, and reinforcements for the adjustable coilover kit. The body is finished in Black Metallic paint with Grey Metallic over-the-top stripes and new chrome trim. Other accessories include Shelby GT500 decals and badging, functional air intake side scoops, side-exit exhaust pipes, a ram-air hood cowl, auxiliary driving lamps, and American Racing Shelby 407 wheels with Shelby knockoff-style center caps and Nitto NT555 tires sized 245/45 R17 in the front and 315/35 R17 in the rear.

The new interior is appointed with high-back front bucket seats and folding rear seats in black leather along with deluxe brushed aluminum door and dash panels, a tilting steering wheel, Carroll Shelby Signature instrumentation, and AutoMeter gauges. Other accessories include center and overhead consoles with map lights, an AM/FM/USB radio, GT500 Eleanor-style seatbelts, and a Hurst shifter.

The 429ci V8 engine is said to have been completely rebuilt and includes ported heads, MSD ignition, a Holley Sniper EFI fuel injection system, an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake, and custom-made stainless-steel headers. The engine also features a custom fuel tank and electric fuel pump. A claimed output of 500 HP and 550 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec TK0 600 5-speed manual transmission with a Modern Driveline conversion kit and 3.73 limited-slip 9'' rear axle. The chassis also features power-assisted rack and pinion steering, a shock tower delete kit, Heidts fully adjustable coilovers, Q1A shocks, frame connectors, a new wiring harness, and Wilwood disc brakes with a 7/8” bore master cylinder. The seller states an overhaul of the motor and engine compartment wiring was completed during the summer of 2022.

This sale will include a clean title.

    @Mike1967 I can understand. You didn't write it. And it's stressful to sell your baby. It's a simply amazing car.

  • Mike1967 (seller) 1 yearago

    @TubeGuy I didn't realize they wrote it up as GM. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

  • PCARMARKET_MODERATOR 1 yearago

    The description has been corrected to read Ford, apologies for any confusion.

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    I might suggest this: "Originally built at Ford’s Dearborn Michigan plant"

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    I can't believe you are missing my point, so let's try this. Your description says:

    "Originally built at GM’s Dearborn Michigan plant"

    Now put your thinking cap on. Not tryin' to be snarky, but jeeeeze. I said unlikely this car would be made at a GM plant. GM! GM! That means General Motors, and they are not Ford. They made the Camaro.

  • Mike1967 (seller) 1 yearago

    @TubeGuy 6.7 million Mustangs produced out of Dearborn plant

  • TubeGuy (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    What I meant, Seller, is this is a Ford, and unlikely to be built in a GM (General Motors) plant.

    Beautiful car by the way!

    @Nikojo because I didn't personally build this car I don't have receipts however the description above covers most of the performance parts used to build her. I can tell you , no expense was spared and the car is beyond beautiful.

  • Mike1967 (seller) 1 yearago

    @TubeGuy not sure I understand the question other than the background I have is that car was assembled in Dearborn plant

  • Mike1967 (seller) 1 yearago

    Good morning, my name is Mike from RI, I'm the owner of this car I didn't build it but have a very thorough build list. If I can answer any questions please let me know.
