Fantomworks GTCS Build For Sale

Location: San Diego, California
Price: Inquire

Some of you may remember the GTCS highly modified build done by Fantomworks for their TV show a while back. Well, the car is for sale at a price of "inquire" One of the pictures is of the Fantomworks invoice. Any takers?

I wonder what the asking price is and how much the seller will take.

BTW does anyone know if the car owner really pays the price on the invoice or does the TV station subsidize the the cost to keep people coming in to have overpriced work done at these shops to keep these programs on the air?

I wonder if that $53k credit listed on the invoice is what the TV network picked up. If I recall the work was stalled for a while as the owner was in Europe and had not paid the amount due at the time. At the end of the show, his friend came in and paid the balance.

If I were shopping for (and could afford) a high end Mustang, it would be Marty Rupp's Concourse HCS.

I just can't get over these stripes. They are the worst I've ever seen. Ever.
Then there are the fog lights.......

This one doesn't really please the eye or the wallet! The custom items don't really work together as a whole.

Agree. Or, a '68 KR

A ton of labor went into that car just to make it whole - aside from the mods. If I recall, they replaced the trunk pan and the rear quarters. Maybe floor pans also.

For the money, you could have taken a '68 Shelby in poor condition and done the same work to it and have a car that might be worth that asking price. But if I had a Shelby, I would keep it stock.

On this car, I would have gone with black stripes and a black roof.

I agree with Arlie,

I couldn't get past the stripes and fog lights. For that price, I've seen enough. Not worth it!!!

I could build that car for a fraction of that price, nut and bolt identical. And I could go old school power for a fraction of the fraction price. It would do everything this car would do! Heck my 67 Fastback will run and hide from this one on the strip. Doubt this car would ever see an autocross or a roundy round course.

And, I am sorry, I hate big wheels on old cars. The front stripe on the left side is awful, but an easy fix.
