Officially gone

After almost 10 years with the 08 we have departed with her. Gone to a better place in Missouri where she will be transformed into a 1968 by Retrobuilt out of Nixa MO. Met these guy's at the MCA National show in Grovetown, GA. and was impressed with their work. They take 05-13 platforms and redo the outside. This will be the first retrobuilt Bullitt and they plan on having it ready for SEMA to unveil. Should be an interesting build, being this the year of the 50th anniversary of the movie. They seem to be as hyped as we are about the build. They will be sending updates with movies and pictures as they progress. The Eleanor in the pictures was made form a S197 platform and also the BOSS. I even installed the original axle back on her prior to them taking her

I prefer the DHG, original 08 Body personally. There is something not right with the look of the 68 retro fit. Like the 53 conversions done on C5 Corvettes, not my Cup of Tea.

That's a pretty major modification! I'm looking forward to seeing the results when it's done. Are you doing any drivetrain updates/changes, or just body?

Just body right now, sometimes other manufacturers want to donate mods for a build that will be in SEMA, so only time will tell.

Sorry, my mistake. I took it to mean that you sold the car. It will be interesting to see how it turns out! I hope it is everything you want it to be.
