1966 Shelby Mustang GT350

1966 Shelby Mustang GT350
Here is the latest addition to the corral.  It's a 1966 Shelby.  We recently picked the car up in Missouri.  It was a long trip from Virginia, but I had some great help from two of my friends.  One being Jeremy from Maple Hill Restoration.

This car is a great, original driver as is, but we have some "tweaking" and cleaning planned for it soon, and, of course Jeremy will be handling that.

This Shelby has been owned by the same individual since 1972!  The car was purchased by him at that time, and he immediately started his career in the military.  The Shelby was properly stored for 30 years until he returned home and had more time to get it going again.  Over the past few years, he performed general maintenance while saving every single part he removed.  It's a great rust free car and will make a super original driver.  The owner was, of course, somewhat sad to see it go, but excited to see it go to a good home.  He is a great guy, and we are looking forward to sending him pictures as we "tweak" the Shelby.

With only 82K original miles, almost every single original part is on or with the car including the engine, carburetor, radiator, aluminum Cobra engine pieces, transmission, fuel pump, water pump, Ray Brown seat belts, Cobra tach, front adjustable shocks, painted Magnum 500 wheels, etc.  Those parts that were replaced will be removed and replaced again with the saved, refurbished, original pieces.

The serial number is SFM6S1732.  It is a factory Ivy Green (Dark Green) 4 speed car - one of 246 non-Hertz green Shelbys built in 1966.   It was purchased new at Dick Walters Ford in West Des Moines, IA.

Stay tuned for more pictures in the coming months.
