I really like this car a lot!
My 66 GT350H Tribute/Clone , a little history, back in the late 80's I lived in Connecticut and bought a real 66 Shelby GT350H from a guy I worked with for 6g's, he used to drive it tow work occasionally and would not even think about selling it, it wasn't mint, it had a built 302 and was a 4 speed car, black w/gold stripes all the right stuff, oil pan, intake etc.with all the documentation but a DIY garage paint job,years went by and I kept asking one day he says yeah I'll sell so I went and looked at it and it was sitting under a tree for years, mice got in the inside and made a mess, but no big deal, so I bought it brought it home pulled and began to prep the body but found out really quick that he had painted it with Emron, that stuff does not come off easy!! So had the car dipped and put new floor pans etc and got about 60% restored and a business I had needed a financial infusion, so I had someone ask me if I was interested in selling it and I really had no choice, a guy that worked for ERA Replica automobiles bought it and that was last I ever saw of it was on a flat bed going down my driveway. I said to myself I was gonna get another one some day, well almost 40 yrs later the prices are 150k+ so best I good do is get a nice clone, my goal now is to make it as good as possible. Here in Phoenix I drive it quite a bit it's 289 A code auto, headers, manifold, mild cam etc, stays cool in 105 degree heat just a pleasure to drive, I did rebuild the front end, brakes, calipers rotors etc. no race car but it works for me. Sure wish I knew what happened to the original, but I don't remember the Shelby #
