Jeff Speegle seems to be the leading authority on the FiberFabs, I'm sure he'll chime in with his knowledge on the subject.

Until then, you may want to check out his web site which includes info on FiberFabs http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/6473/

There was also a cool article on his Fiberfab in one of the Mustang magazines about 5 years ago.

Yea, I've got that issue somewhere, pretty cool article. It also shows Jeff's mug shot, so you can put a face to the post

The 50 was an approx number since the company did not want to share the full number. We do know that the front ends were unpopular (peope did not like the design, too expensive and it was not a simple "bolt on) Since we know they measured success when they sold 100-200 plus of a kit its a fairly easy guess.

Currently I know of 14 original front ends. In recent years a couple of owners have made molds from their front ends and sold them to others. Some of the details are different on the reproductions I've seen.

FIberFab sold two different versions of the Mustang ET front ends. A convensional front end that was a single pice that included the nose and both fenders. Hood was separate and was installed like the normal Mustang hood. The Competition front end was a three piece item with two small panels that were installed behind the front tires and a large tilt front end for the rest. There are more of the conventional front ends around today .... my current one (owned two over the years) is the Comp. model

Through the years a few have been installe on race cars and one was even used (and destroyed) for a B movie "Joy-Ride to Nowhere"

A friend has spotted one and while being "not for sale" asked the owner several questions about the Fiberfab conversions... Relayed this info to me, thought I'd check it out with the experts!

The numbers of possibles likely came from the article on my car.

Another FiberFab in your area? Bet the guy thinks he's got a gold mine ;)

Jeff, While I haven't been too impressed with some of the photos of other cars (notably 'verts) I find your car striking! The other mods made to the car work together. I REALLY like it. I hope to see it in person some day. As far as a fellow with a fiberfab front end thinking he had a gold mine, didn't I recently see a fiberfab car listing for $50,000! I'd like to own a car like yours Jeff, but...

Jeff, Ron Bramlett has a Fiberfab in his backyard (without the front end parts however), if you did not know yet. At least he showed me the shell, when we walked through it with the big dogs behind us.
