1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Tribute
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this beautiful Shelby GT350 Fastback Tribute. A little extra flair in the styling department gave the GT350 Mustangs some more visual interest than the standard Fastback Coupes. Not only was the curb appeal enhanced, the horsepower was definitely more exciting than the rest of the Mustang line-up. The exampled offered here for consideration has GT350 looks and horsepower without the big GT350 price tag.
Bright Red paint hugging all the curves of this Mustang is hard to miss. Add black racing stripes and this Mustang will be turning heads wherever it goes. Part of the weight savings on the original GT350 was achieved using a fiberglass hood with a steel frame. This car uses a fiberglass hood and trunk-lid, both wearing the traditional racing stripes.
The powerplant under the hood is the original 'C' coded 289 V8 that has been rebuilt and upgraded to produce more power. Rebuilt to .30 over and includes a 600 CFM 4-Barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake manifold, Lunati camshaft, new crank assembly, and pointless ignition. All that engine work equates to the engine now pumping out approximately 300 horsepower which puts it right in line with the power of a true '65 GT350. Connected to the power-plant is a 4-speed manual.
A pretty traditional interior includes a deep dish Mustang steering wheel, black vinyl bucket seats, and center console. Upgrades to the interior come in the form of 6 aftermarket white faced gauges, and a Hurst shifter. It also has brand new rubber on period correct wheels. The car fires on command and runs extremely well. Only 277 miles have been recorded since the restoration was completely in 2015.
