How do you get a restored dream machine, save thousands $$$$$, and get some great upgrades? A car like this 1968 Ford Mustang GT350 tribute offers you everything from a performance-built V8 to ice-cold A/C. It's truly the best of everything.
This was clearly a build that spared just about no expense to make this fastback spiritually very close to its '68 Shelby cousins. All the important stuff is here, including a fiberglass hood, hood pins, extended nose, fog lights, quarter panel scoops, and trunk lid spoiler. The wide taillights even have the cool sequential turn signals, and there's a snake-bitten gas cap in the center. There's correct badging all around the car, and no one will overlook the iconic Shelby 10-spoke wheels. So yes, this total package will easily be a favorite of even the experts. Plus, the bright glossy red with all the correct striping on the top and down the rocker panels creates one of the boldest packages around.
The investment didn't just stop with the exterior. The premium black vinyl buckets look so good that they have to be part of a new package. The same can go for the door panels, carpeting, and dash. Plus, a newer AM/FM digital tuner with iPod input and ice-cold air conditioning heightens this luxury feeling. But more than just premium, this is a true sports car. So we love how the dash panel and center console have been upgraded to brushed stainless, which really emphasizes the sporty feeling. And because owning a classic Shelby Mustang is all about the driving experience, and the wood-rimmed steering wheel is drop-dead gorgeous. Beyond that is a full gauge package with a large speedo and tach.
The full Cobra upgrade continues under the hood. The long air topper and valve covers immediately grab your attention. And the longer you admire, the more you appreciate the full tidy setup. But more than just look great, this V8 has all the right go-fast goodies. The consignor says this is the original 289 cubic-inch powerplant, and it was rebuilt in 2013 to include an Edelbrock Performer four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, Comp Cams camshaft, Mallory billet electronic distributor, Mallory Hy-Fire electronic ignition, and Scott Drake Tri-Y headers. And there has been less than 350 miles put on this package since completion! Plus, the suspension has nice upgrades like the thick sway bar up front and Traction Master traction bars in the rear for true Shelby-style handling. And when you add in the C4 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, you soon realize that this tribute has been upgraded to be a great anytime classic.
The sale comes with the build receipts. It proves there has been a huge investment in time and money to make sure this is a total package that looks like a Shelby on the outside and keeps you comfortable on the inside. It's time to enjoy the best of everything in one cool Mustang. Call now!
