1970 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Additional Info:

All Shelby Mustangs have become more and more treasured with each passing year. The interesting story with the 1970 cars, is that they are really 1969 cars that were re-serial numbered under the watchful eyes of the FBI after the always colorful Carol Shelby fell out with the corporate types at Ford in mid-1969. There were only 789 cars re-numbered as '70s so that makes this car a pretty rare Pony. When Stacy's Concours Restorations in Tennessee... undertook the project, great care was taken to make sure the car had all the correct markings and spray patterns as they appeared on the car when it was produced. Even on the underside of the car! The Red paint job with Gold stripes is not original to the car but certainly a popular color for the Shelby Mustang. Up front Carol designed a unique hood with 5 openings. 3 cold air scoops facing forward and 2 facing back to let hot air out. The grill and bumper are also unique to the Shelby with a striking Cobra along with fog lights and a deep chin spoiler under it. At the rear of the car, the brakes light up the whole back end and go into sequencing mode when you use the blinkers. The exhaust exits out the center and has Shelby in script across the trunk lid. Open the door and the treatment continues. A Cobra is perched in the wood grained panel insert in the door and everything is correct including the stickers on the door and Shelby Automotive plaque on the door sill. The high-backed bucket seats have pleated centers with smooth panels surrounding it and a slash of red across the top. The three spoke wooden steering wheel is mounted on oh so cool tilt-away column with the wood grained dash board clearly visible behind it. Gauge markings are crisp and sharp as is the chrome piping around the edges of them. An AM/FM radio sits above an oil pressure and volt meter in the center console. That sweet looking blue, black and white Shelby shift knob is there in the center console just begging you to stir it around. Starting instructions on the visor might be useful for anyone who isn't familiar with starting a high performance carbureted engine. Twist those quarter turn hood locks loose and raise it up. There you will find a 351 Windsor engine. The blue air filter housing has the 351 Ram Air sticker on it and feeds a four-barrel carburetor. Ribbed valve covers with Cobra, Ford are black with polished ribs. The rest of the block and heads are painted Ford Blue. The exhaust manifolds get the spent gasses heading back efficiently and run through cherry bomb mufflers to deliver a nice sound. the spent gasses to the back bumper. The power flows back through a clutch to a wide ratio manual transmission (which was an option on this car), to a 3.25 traction lok rear axle. There is power steering for running the back roads or pulling into a parking spot, and power front disc brakes to haul you to a stop. The rubber meets the road through F60-15s all around mounted on five spoke alloys with polished outer rings. This Shelby GT350 is rare, gorgeous, and capable. Come on down and see for yourself.
