Just the Details...1966 Shelby GT350 Restoration

1966 Shelby SFM6S933 is another project in the shop at Maple Hill Restoration. We have other posts on the Blog here about the car. Just to recap, like all of the cars, we will be involved with the research and, of course, will be supplying the parts for this project. This is a fantastic, rust free car, but was painted white at one time. When Jeremy picked it up from the customer, it had already been disassembled. Fortunately, many of the original parts are in super condition and everything was saved.

Today we have more great pictures showing some original markings and primer/sealer colors.

It is interesting to note that the red primer colors are reversed from the earlier carryover cars.  The darker red in on the majority of the floor pan, while that lighter salmon color red is in the rear inside and on the front of the car.

Very clean shock tower area.  This area usually just collects dirt, moisture and is rusted.  This one is one of the cleanest that I have seen.  1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang.
