“CARS, GUITARS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN”
AUTOMOTIVE by Wild Customs is a line of high end instruments paying homage to iconic car designs. We’ve always been car enthusiasts at WILD CUSTOMS. A lot of our instruments draw inspiration from classic cars, muscle cars, racing cars, hyper cars, concept cars… Needless to mention the role of the Kustom Kulture in supporting and fostering our creativity. Color, shapes, lines, materials, customizations are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for the team and it appears obvious to launch a brand new line of instruments… A brand new line of instruments that we’ve naturally called “AUTOMOTIVE by Wild Customs”
FORD MUSTANG SHELBY GT 500 “ELEANOR”
The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby from 1965 to 1968. For 1967, the G.T. 500 was added to the lineup, equipped with a “Ford Cobra” V8 engine with two 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors sitting atop a mid-rise Aluminium intake manifold.
“Eleanor” is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive star title credit in a movie. The Ford Mustang featured in the original “Gone in 60 seconds” action film (1974) is a customized 1971 Ford Mustang Sportsroof. We’ve based our guitar design on the “Eleanor” featured in the 2000 remake of “Gone in 60 seconds” film where Nicolas Cage plays the master auto thief Randall “Memphis” Raines. The “Eleanor” featured in the 2000 remake is a Dupont Pepper Grey 1967 Ford Mustang fastback, depicted as a Shelby GT 500, with a customized body kit designed by Steve Stanford, the notorious automotive illustrator.
