SOLD 1965 Shelby GT350 Clone SOLD

This 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback had a full nut-and-bolt restoration completed with performance in mind in late 2006 by Classic Motorsports and Mustang Coral in Northern California. No expense was spared. Started with a San Jose built, black-plate, rust-free C-code car that has all original floor pans and quarter panels. Approximately 5,000 miles have been covered since the restoration was completed, and the car is well sorted with a build sheet as impressive as they come.

The body was media blasted to bare metal and painted with PPG base clear BMW dark blue by Ken's Custom Auto Body in Yuba City, California. Modifications include a Shelby fiberglass hood, functional side scoops for rear brakes, and an R-model from valance. spun aluminum mirrors, extended lug nuts, and an R-model vented plexiglas rear window.

The car has a highly developed suspension and chassis.
