Just the Details...1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang

6S1732 - 1966 GT350 - Green - 4 spd. - Painted Magnum 500 wheels.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Last month, we posted about our recently acquired 1966 GT350 Shelby.  If you missed the post, you can click here to read it.  We usually post here about cars that are receiving full blown restorations. This one is going to be a bit different.

Since this is a nice, original 80K mile car, we have decided just to clean some things up and use it as a "driver".  In doing so, we are using most all of the original parts in their present, but cleaned up, condition.  Of course, there are several parts that we will be replacing like the gas tank.  The previous owner installed an imported reproduction gas tank.  We are replacing this with one of our concours quality gas tanks.

We will also be installing an older Ford NOS dual exhaust system, new brake lines and hoses, new front to rear gas lines, and other items as needed.

Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration (www.MapleHillResto.com) is handling the job and carefully cleaning the original parts.  He's also buffing the paint.  Some of it is original, but the majority appears to have been re-sprayed with lacquer in the late sixties.

Here are some pictures showing some "geeky details" on the car like the dates on the rear bumper and license light, the DSO marking on the tail light panel, original Ray Brown seat belts, and the brake cooling ducts.

LH Door Latch on the 66 Shelby before cleaning.  That's just black dirt-not paint.

LH Door Latch on the 66 Shelby after cleaning.  What a difference.  That's original paint in the door area.

Original "DSO 290" marking on the rear tail light panel of the Shelby.  Also note the original rear valance screws with the flat one under the bumper guard.  We have seen this on other cars.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

That's just dirt that has come in around the brake cooling duct over the years.  The duct appears to have never been originally sealed.  Also when it was originally riveted, it didn't get tight.

Happy Holidays from Virginia Classic Mustang!

www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

I love this, so I've been posting it for the past several years.  I found it somewhere on the Internet and tweaked it a bit. I don't know the author (sorry), but it is pretty cool!

Happy Holidays from Virginia Classic Mustang!



'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage,

There wasn't a trace of a Chevy or a Dodge.

The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,

So I figured I'd mess with the ‘Stang for a bit.

I popped out the hood pins and I lifted the hood,

When a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good."

Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,

And there, by the workbench, stood good ol’ Saint Nick!

We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say,

Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?

I said "no way, Santa" and started to grin,

"But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!"

His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,

Turned into a smile and he said "hey! Let's go!!"

So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat,

We pushed the Mustang quietly into the street,

Then, taking our places to drift down the hill,

I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill.

The sound that erupted took him by surprise,

But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.

With Goodyears a' crying and side pipes aglow,

We headed on out where the hot rodders go.

And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,

With every up shift, as I went through the gears.

Then he yelled "can't recall when I've felt so alive!",

So I backed off the gas and said "you wanna drive?"



Ol’ Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,

When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!

Then the HiPo exploded with side exhaust sound!

Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground!


Power shift into second, again into third!

I sat there just watching, at loss for a word,

Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight,

"Merry Christmas to all...........what a great night!!!"

Performance Motors of Hanover

Showroom at Performance Motors of Hanover.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Last week, we visited Performance Motors of Hanover (PA).  One of the partners in this new company is our good customer and friend, Tony Conover of Conover Racing and Restoration.  

The showroom is absolutely beautiful and it is stocked with a good supply of Shelbys and Ford Muscle Cars.  There are even a few Chevrolets in the mix!  If you get a chance, you may want to visit.

This will be a stop on the road tour for the highly successful Shelby American Automobile Club's NE Regional Fall Meet that is held each October.  I know it is many months until this meet, but you may want to note it on your calendar now.  You don't want to miss it.  It should be the best one yet!

Enjoy the pictures.  There are a few more on the Virginia Classic Mustang Facebook page - click here to see them.
