Default Make a 05-09 mustang look like a 60s mustang

Is there a front bumper/front end and rear end that will make it look like a 60s Eleanor gt500. Basically, i am considering a 60s mustang as a first car but am also considering a newer one, so Is there a front end/bumper and rear end.

Thanks

Are you looking for something like this?http://www.americanmuscle.com/eleano...le-0509gt.html

Or are you looking for a whole front/rear bumper?

Dude, you don't want a classic Mustang as your first car. You don't have the experience to not wreck it, and I guarantee you can't keep it garaged almost all year so them miles don't rack up, and keep it from getting exposed to weather. It wouldn't be right to make a piece of American history into a DD.

There are many different body kits.
There is the Eleanor body kit.

As for having a classic as your first car, think about dependability and all the creature comforts of the newer Stangs. Its pretty awesome to be able to jump in my car and not have to worry about it breaking down on me.

@OP, all you need to do is buy the eleanor body kit for the 05-09. It definately won't look like a 68 eleanor but it will be as close as you can get.

Don't get a classic 60 as a DD

I would be more worried about the reliability of the newer cars with all the electronics and crap in them over a classic that has very little to go wrong with.

Or go drop 45K on a Retrobuilt. IMO it'd be worth it.

Yeah, i was at the vintage forums and tent suggested that I get a 05-08 because for te older ones you need some knowledge on the engines, so i was looking for something like the retro built but something that is not 45k and just replaceable by taking out the front bumper and putting in one like that.

I like the 69s and below...
So does
Anyone know if there is anything like that

45K after car cost and the cost of the conversion. I called and got a quote myself. Its more than just the front. Requires that you redo the geometry of everything in the forward engine compartment.

There are tons of retro styling options. Go look on Americanmuscle.com under scoops, louvers, ect.

Some guy on here has a black and white Mustang that looks pretty retro.

Mod list I suggest: SHR flush mount louvers or http://www.americanmuscle.com/cervin...ow-covers.html

MMD Rear Window Louver - make SURE you get the aluminum one - ABS looks cheap - http://www.americanmuscle.com/rear-w...vers-0512.html

Cervini's Mustang Pedestal Wing - http://www.americanmuscle.com/cervin...stal-wing.html

CDC Aggressive Chin Spoiler - http://www.americanmuscle.com/cdcagchsp2gt.html

CDC Shaker System (to give it that R code look) - http://www.americanmuscle.com/cdc-20...er-system.html

A California Special rear bumper - http://www.cjponyparts.com/product.a...paign=shopping

Cervini's C-Series Mustang Side Scoops = http://www.americanmuscle.com/cervin...de-scoops.html

Some throaty mufflers, I prefer the Flowmaster American Thunders

Some Shelby stripes.

And some 5 spoke Bullitt wheels - in anthracite - not chrome. I prefer 18-19 inches. Anything larger than 20 is completely stupid.

Go buy a pre-69 and build it. I've seen someone take an S197 and add chrome to make it look vintage but it looked like azz.
