It's been quite a while since we have had an update on the restoration of 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 number SFM6S933.

There are several posts with pictures scattered throughout our Blog. If you want to check a few out, you can Click Here and Here.

Just a little background...this was a super nice, straight, rust-free car before the restoration. It arrived to Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration mostly disassembled. The color had been changed from the original Sapphire Blue to White, and the car just needed a restoration. Fortunately, all of the original parts were there including the original engine, unique Shelby parts, ten spoke wheels, and entire driveline. Heck, the original window sticker from Hi-Performance Motors is still with the car.

Lots of the components for the Shelby are now restored, so it will be going together rather quickly once the painting process is completed.

In this post, we show the beginning of the painting process as some body parts are painted and the underside is painted duplicating the exact original look of the original that was still on the car. Tons of hours went into the preparation for this phase of the restoration.

Jeremy duplicated the original reddish colors of sealer that were originally applied. The blue overspray was sprayed, and then most of this got covered by the "black out" that was originally applied to the lower rocker panel pinch weld areas. You will notice that on this particular car there was a lot of black that covered up the blue overspray. As stated before, it was just put back exactly as this particular car was originally done. Even the drips in the original sealer on the floor pans were duplicated perfectly.

There are tons of other details, and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. It turned out fantastic...certainly a work of art. Jeremy will be painting the interior of the trunk and the interior floor pans next and then the body itself. We will have those pictures when that process takes place.
