Customer Car Feature - 1966 GT350H Shelby Clone

1966 Shelby GT350H Clone.

We always love to get emails and pictures of our customers' cars.  Here is the latest images we received from a customer in California of his 1966 GT350H Shelby clone Mustang.

Here is a little bit about my Mustang.  I bought it in 1978 for $550.  I always liked the 2+2 body style.  It was in OK shape so I spent some time fixing it up, and it became my daily driver.  

I live in California and they have strict smog laws.  In the late 80's I was not able to pass the smog tests because I could not find the smog air injector tubes and mine had rusted out.  They offered to give me $1000 to junk the car (a California law to get smog producers off the road).  I liked the car to much to let it go to the junk yard, so I took it home and parked it thinking that some day I'll be able to get it smog legal.  It sat under a car cover for many years and then California passed a law that said that pre 1972 cars did not have to pass the smog test and could legally be driven on the road.  I decided that I would rebuild the car as a Shelby clone and spent the last 5 years working on it.

A friend told me about Virginia Classic Mustang and gave me a catalog.  I would say that about 90% of the parts I bought for the rebuild came from  Virginia Classic Mustang.  I rebuilt the engine using Keth Black pistons, GT40 heads, Comp cam, roller tapits, Edelbrock intake, Holley 750 street eliminator, Pertronics ignition, JBA headers and Flow master dual exhaust system with H-pipe. I also installed an oil cooler to help keep it cool.  Thanks for the great support from Virginia Classic Mustang.
