International Bullitt Mustang Replica and Look-alike Collection© Wolfgang Kohrn 1992-2009
In 2008 he got hold of a 390 cui FE engine, which was not in really good shape, but was good enough to overhaul it and modify it with a few performance parts.
|In 2004/2005 Bastian
Ebener was searching for an Eleanor to find out finally, that the car wasn't
up to his expectations once he could inspect one in person.|
Soon after he happened to see the movie Bullitt and was pulled into another direction. After a desperate search for a Fastback body, he found out that Hardtop and Fastback have a similar chassis and floor pan group, so checked out a few Hardtops worth between 3000 and 5000 Euros. Finally he found a T-5 Coupe in Belgium with a 289 and a C4 automatic. When he decided to buy it his father had already bought another totalled 67 Coupe body with a title, just 30 miles away from his home. After cutting away all crimped body parts, a small order was sent to the US to test a supplier, which worked out good and the big one followed.
Step by step he realized his vision of a 1968 Fastback in Bullitt-Style and called it finally Bullitt Coupback.
