Planning my next build and while looking for aftermarket body panels I came across this photo but cannot find any information on this build or who makes these body panels.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, can’t wait to get this 1st gen project started.

That's the "Eleanor" GT500E body kit from the Gone in 60 Seconds reboot.

I imagine an Eleanor kit to be similar to what I’ve posted below from Maier’s site. Maybe I’m thinking of the wrong thing.

That pariticular car was built for the SCCA American V8 Supercars class (AMV8SS) and ran on the west coast in 2011 or so. I think it was run by a guy named Jeff Kaiser from the Bay area.

Yup, that's the basis of this car. There were a few different manufacturer's of the kit and I do remember a "widebody" version, though the race car the OP posted looks like it has additional "universal" flares molded in as well. Definitely the same grill, lower valance, side scoops, hood, and taillights though.

Awesome, I appreciate that info. I’m going to keep digging and see if I can find any mention of this vehicle anywhere else.

Regardless, that white Mustang looks absolutely beautiful.

Looks like it is based on an Eleanor kit but highly modified for wheel clearance.
