This car is all about adding distinction and attraction to an already impressive package. After alland#44; beyond the Shelby elements of this 1965 Ford Mustang GT350 tributeand#44; theres still the ultra-desirable first-year fastback underneath. Thats why this early pony car is a winner from every angle.<br /> <br><br> A Shelby-built GT350 will cost a fortuneand#44; and even a nice tribute like this requires a major investment. So while they were busy putting the work into making a snake-bitten coupeand#44; its also nice to see some custom touches that really highlight the effort. It all results in a car that looks mean and distinct and will also standout in the Mustang crowd. Theres just no mistaking the original GT350 appearance. It starts with taking one of the rarest and often most valuable of the three Mustang configurationsand#44; the 2+2 fastbackand#44; and making it look even better. This one was restored to include a professional application of Wimbledon White paint. Plusand#44; the hood scoopand#44; hood pinsand#44; and larger side air ducts are icons from the years Shelby was building these out of his Los Angeles factory. But its instantly easy to distinguish this 65 from across the show field thanks to the addition of the red competition stripesand#44; and thats also repeated on the GT-style rockers. The result is a car that looks correct and nicely presented while still being quite distinctive.<br /> <br><br> Inside the white and red theme continues. But where the exterior is built for competitionand#44; the interior is much more about comfort and luxury. You know this the moment you open the door and lay eyes on the premium Pony package bucket seats that even have Mustang logo seatbelts. This two-tone vinyl matches so nicely with the fold-down rear seatand#44; door panelsand#44; headlinerand#44; caperingand#44; and dashboard. This is a comfortable center console car with wood paneling that matches the glovebox and gauge surrounds. In factand#44; this coupe looks authentic and premium right down to the provisions for air conditioning. But there is one nice upgrade that is a great addition to any car that goes on road trips. The modern AM/FM/CD stereo means always being able to match to soundtrack to the road. And thats a good thing because this is a true drivers car. You know it the moment you slip behind the Shelby-style wood and chrome steering wheeland#44; and gaze over the GT-style gauges that also have the addition of the Rally Pac-style tach and clock mounted to the steering column.<br /> <br><br> Under the hood is 289 cubic-inch V8 thats dressed to impress the Shelby crowd. It has the Cobra air cleaner and Cobra valve covers boldly sitting on top of the big blue block. And since this is originally an A-code coupeand#44; youll be happy to see a four-barrel carburetor helping the stout V8 inhale deeply. High flow mufflers on the dual exhaust help give this total package more bark and bite. In factand#44; the whole coupe is setup up to be a great anytime sports car with features like power steeringand#44; C4 three-speed automatic transmissionand#44; front disc brakesand#44; a new rear sway barand#44; and BF Goodrich T/A radials on those iconic Mag wheels.<br /> <br><br> All it takes is one look at the exceptionally clean undercarriage to understand the level of investment that went into this GT350 tribute. So beyond the great looks is a great buildand#44; which makes this a fantastic buy. Call today!!
