Perhaps this has been talked about before but,
has anyone had the desire or curiosity about a S550 in a Eleanor Trim?
I for one love the 67 to 68 Shelby Fastback and especially decked out as Eleanor.
When the S550 came out, there was talk from American Muscle about releasing some type of Eleanor and Bullitt Body Kit but I guess nothing ever happened.
I am surprised no one has tried to produce one. Maybe there is not a demand (I think that’s too bad).
I do feel the current model would look better as Eleanor versus the 2018’s coming out.
And of course, it would be more appropriate for the GT350 and R to be converted over as they are official Shelby cars.
Nonetheless, wish there was something out there, am I just crazy to think that?
What do you all think?
Thanks

How would you turn a S550 into an Eleanor. I mean an Eleanor is an Eleanor. It would be like turning a Camaro into a Corvette.

Your right, the original is definitely the original.

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of having some options to spruce of the exterior and get similar looks to Eleanor.

For example, double lights on the lower front fascia, side exhausts, (window louvers and side scoops are already produced), and rear conversion.

Thanks

Here's an image. I don't think anything is out in a kit form though. I do believe Cervini's makes a side exhaust, and as for scoops, they make those as well. I don't think there's a front fascia that has lights, but I would think you could convert an existing grill

I wouldn't mind making my Stang look like those AM Pics.

Before I ordered my car, I had given serious thought to making a "Halicki" Edition S550. To me, the original version of Gone in 60 Seconds is the ONLY version. That Nick Cage movie is garbage.

For the S550, it wouldn't be all that difficult. Blackout the hood between the two stingers, blackout the rockers a little bit add some hood pins and some white letter tires - oh and be sure to order the car in Yellow first! :D

The side scoops look really good...do they stay on very well?
