1968 Ford Mustang Shelby

1968 Shelby GT 350 Convertible clone

75,875 miles

Lakeland, FL

1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible recreation The car started life as a C code 1967 mustang convertible, with 302 automatic, power steering, power top and manual brakes. The car is now a Recreation of the 1968 Shelby GT350 convertible, it has all the hard work done and is very close to being ready for paint. I will start with the body, it has new quarter panels, and floor pans where replaced, all the rust was repaired and the body just needs some minor prep work for paint. All the Shelby parts are Fiberglass from Branda and are lined up nice, but again will need minor adjustments before final paint. It has new front and rear bumpers and I have the trim for the headlights,but you will need a Shelby grill. The brakes where gone threw and new gas tank was installed. The motor is a 302 that runs great, does not smoke or use oil and starts right up. It has new Flowmaster duel exhaust that is turned down before the rear valance. The wheels are correct for the Shelby with nice matching set of tires. The interior has new carpet, front and rear seat covers and door panels. The convertible top was replaced with new pads and plastic rear window. The top is power and works fine but is not hooked up to the switch on the dash yet. The lower part of the roll bar is welded in place, but the top part can be removed if needed. The steering wheel is from a real Shelby, it is not a repro! There are some things you will need to finish the car like install the door glass, the regulators are in the doors the rear are in place. The car will need all soft seals replaced. The tail lights are not hooked up yet and not all the gauges are working in the dash. Power top switch needs to be hooked up. and the fog lights are not working. There is also a small power steering leak. I'm sure there are some odds and ends you will need but all the hard work has been done.
