Red face 1967 Mustang Coupe Conversion Kits

Hello everyone! My husband and I are currently restoring my 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe. I am interested in changing to body a bit. I like the Shelby GT-500 look (except for the back). I know that since my car is not a fastback that it will not look like the Shelby GT-500, but I would like to know if anyone knows of a conversion kit for my car.

I see no reason why you could not still use a fastback body kit since everyhting from the kit would be the same with the exception of the side scoops and deck lid.

Look at the 68 Shelby GT-500KR convertible. It was absolutely beautiful.

There are a lot of places selling the body kits out there and easy to find. Try your typical mustang parts house like "Mustangs Unlimited", "Laurel Mountain Mustang", and "Mustangs Plus"

'68 Fastback, space blue metalic, 351C-4-V, 4-speed toploader
'69 Mach I, (Pending Resto Project)
'66 Fastback (because I wanted one)

The only Shelby coupe made // EXP500 // Try Tony Branda Mustang Parts Shelby Parts Cobra Parts he's high but his fiberglass parts fit great most fiberglass parts fit really bad so its better to spend more on them up front.They do sell a 67 Shelby style hoods that fit the normal mustang front end.Or look up a california special it had the Shelby style trunk and tail lights.

Little Red
Lee Grey attended the Ford Preview event for the new 1968 Fords at the Los Angeles Coliseum in August 1967, where he saw a Shelby GT-500 prototype coupe nicknamed "Little Red". This was a supercharged 428, C-6 automatic coupe that was dressed up in bright red paint, and a vinyl top, as a formal, yet high performance vehicle. It was on display to gauge market response as a possible Shelby lineup Mustang. Lee saw this as an opportunity to use the elements of this prototype to market his "California-Only Mustang". He met with Lee Iaccoca in L.A., and the decision was made to bring the car to Dearborn to develop into a limited edition Mustang. First, it was known as the "GT/SC", as a nationally available Sport Coupe, then, after some discussion, developed as the GT/CS. The 1968 Mustang Sprint became the springtime edition available nationally.
