It's been several months since our last update on our '66 Shelby restoration. This is 6S033, an early Carryover car. The Carryover cars were actually '65 Mustangs that were ordered by Shelby American to convert to the first 252 '66 Shelbys. Read more about these unique cars at www.CarryoverGT350.com.

Check out the latest pictures and be sure to read the comments under each image.
