Dragged home a Shelby

One of my latest finds...
Too bad that it's not a real one. )-: But it is an S-code, factory 4spd and deluxe interior. This Mustang has been stored in this warehouse for probably 25 years. The cool thing about it is that is was stored 1 block away from where it was sold brand new. Includes all the scoops and a 428 PI engine. LOL

At first I thought you were serious about a Shelby, nice find all the same though. So will you restore this one or put it on the chopping block?

I would love to keep it but I already have too many stangs...
I will fix a few things and doll it up a bit. Then it will go up for sale...

Who cares what it is or isn't, it's got a freaking 428!

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

Looks solid - is that your shop? With you looking at the car or is that where you found it?

I was looking for another Mustang. I rarely do... just people know I am into these cars and I had told the owner if he ever wanted to sell it to give me a call... That was a couple years ago...

The car is real solid. This is the warehouse where I bought it. All 4 tires were flat, but good ole bias ply tires pumped right up and the car rolled real easy... I was shocked.

Already ordered another hood for it. The one on it was an original Shelby hood and off of a friends real car. I told him he should keep it.
