Restomod ’67 Shelby GT500 Mustang


Restomod ’67 Shelby GT500 Mustang - Muscle Cars BlogEngine swaps have been around as long as there have been different manufacturers making a variety of models. Whether it’s putting a flathead V8 in your Model A Ford, or injecting some modern power into your aging musclecar, an engine swap can define an entire vehicle. Such is the case with this spectacular 1967 Mustang that’s dressed up like a Shelby GT500 and packs a 2004 Mustang Cobra power plant under the hood.

The rest of the car was updated as well, but the basic goodness of the Mustang shape was retained, along with the very best Shelby upgrades, creating a Pro-Touring fastback that has to be seen to be believed. Built by the guys at Pro Touring Super Cars (a division of Speed, Inc.), this was a cost-no-object car from the beginning. Speed, Inc. specializes in putting late model power into vintage muscle, and bringing the latest technology to bear on the cars of the past. What better way to do that than build a Shelby GT500 tribute with one of Ford’s most potent late-model powertrains? Read more!
