New Build Somewhat Restomoded 67 Shelby 3/10/16 Finished !

Recommended Posts

post-11522-0-78195400-1401937124_thumb.jStarted this 67 Shelby a few days ago and will be doing some mild custom work on her. I did not like the tires that came with the kit so I have found a set that I like for this build. Will also be installing a Super Charged Coyote engine & will have to do some slight modification to the back half to accommodate the tires & updated rear differential and suspension.

It's the reissue of the AMT.

The only issue I have found so far is the fitment of the front clip which will need some work to get it to fit correct.I also would like to be able to get the Eleanor rims for this build so if anyone knows where I can score some please let me know otherwise I will stick with the Torq Thrusters.

It depends on what type of car you're going for.. Torq-Thrusts for drag or Eleanor rims for Eleanor..

It'll look good either way

Started modifying the rear back half yesterday evening to accommodate the rear tires & have a mock up of the motor with the super charger painted with alclad chrome & the engine painted aluminum & the transmission painted magnesium then cleared.

Good job! Keep it up! As for the wheels, I would keep the Torqs on it. My opinion, you can do what you want.

Nice start.

I couldn't find any Eleanor wheels so I used the Halibrands from the Revell Cobra kit on mine.

Mitch thank you for the info on the rims I may look for the kit tomorrow.

Some slow progress today but its only body filler on some of the parts that I will be using for the rear suspension.

Some progress today on the Shelby which was removing both front grills & fitting the replacement grill, attaching the front clip to the body & smoothing the front clip to the body & getting the 4 link ready for the rear suspension & the valve covers in primer which I think I will decal wrap in carbon fiber or maybe paint them the same color as the body which I'm not sure of the color yet but have a good idea what it maybe and also have the seats in primer also.post-11522-0-67707000-1402287485_thumb.jpost-11522-0-18300300-1402287452_thumb.jpost-11522-0-08926700-1402287527_thumb.jpost-11522-0-03199800-1402287562_thumb.j

Decided on the interior color which will be a light tan with the carpet being a little more darker tan then then the light tan. The body color I'm not sure yet but have two colors in mind.

Here are a few mock up pictures.

I have been working on smoothing out the rear half of the undercarriage where I have cut out part of the frame and I have shorten the width of the gas tank also so I will have room to add new frame rails for the four link. My next step will be adding the new frame rails & to close in the rear wheel wells and to figure out what height I want the rear suspension to be at.
