So, we are checking in again on the restoration of 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustang, SFM6S933. 

Just in case you haven't been following along, this Shelby is being restored by Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration for one of our customers. The gorgeous Sapphire Blue has been applied, and the car is ready for assembly.

As it goes together, we wanted to share some pictures in this post showing the incredible detail on several items including the steering box, disc brake proportioning valve, interior, and underside.

6S0933 was a great car before restoration. It arrived at Maple Hill Restoration after it was already disassembled, it had a color change to white, and it just deserved a fantastic restoration. Well, Jeremy at Maple Hill has not disappointed. It is gorgeous!

After months and months of preparation, we finally get to see the "pretty stuff" go on. I personally can't wait to see this beauty rolling on the Goodyear Blue Streaks mounted on its original ten spoke wheels.

In this installment, we have some shots of the dash going together with the meticulously restored heater box assembly and wiper mechanism. The new underdash wiring is also going in along with the nice original firewall mat.

Keep reading and subscribe by clicking here, because next week I'll have some details of the underside and more pieces get installed!
