It can be difficult to find your favorite new sports car but for those who want to dig into the used market, there are a number of gems waiting to be found. This 1967 Ford Mustang GT500E Reset is proof of just that. Underneath the stunning classic chassis, it has a 427 V8, a six-speed manual transmission, and plenty of upgraded technology, too.
In case the letter “E” in this name feels unfamiliar, it is supposed to represent Eleanor, a Mustang that has been given the title credits to star in Gold in 60 Seconds. This example is not related to the movie in any way other than the aesthetics of the design but that doesn’t stop it from being highly desirable.
The seller didn’t list a horsepower rating, but we’d expect it to be north of 400 hp because this 427 mil V8 to 480 cubic inches features FiTech fuel injection, aluminum heads, and a dual X-pipe exhaust with cutouts. The power goes through a six-speed gearbox, then travels to a 9-inch rear end with 3.75 gears.
American Racing wheels conceal large Wilwood power disc brakes. In fact, everything under the hood was precisely replaced as needed.
Inside the cabin is where things are really fun though. Classic components such as the steering wheel and dashboard complement modern components such as digital gauges. The new Bluetooth audio system features an old-school design while modern power window switches blend into the center console as if they were original.
The Recaro bucket seats appear to be very supportive and supportive while making room for a four-point harness. There is also a storable GO-EFI FiTech portable console with vital data such as AFR, Coolant Temp and more.
Interestingly, the auction winner will also receive historical papers about the car including the original sales document. It shows that in 1967, this Mustang cost $3,346.05 when new. Today, StreetSide Classics hopes to go somewhere in the $339,995 neighborhood.
