1965 Ford Mustang Fastback GT350SR Clone
In 2005, Carroll Shelby authorized several 1965 Mustang Fastbacks to be licensed as Shelby continuation models. These cars were named GT 350 SR (S was for the 40 year anniversary of the original 350 in 1965). In essence, this is the way Carroll would have built the car if he had the opportunity to build it with today’s technology.
This GT 350 is handsomely presented with full rotisserie restoration and bare-metal refinish performed by Carmichael of Prescott, Arizona. This exceptional GT350 recreation further enhanced with a custom side-exit exhaust passing through each rocker panel to maintain the car's ground clearance. Riding on a Ron Morrison front-suspension system, the Mustang is further equipped with precise rack and pinion steering by Randal's, while the rear suspension is highly upgraded with Maier Racing springs, sway bar, Panhard rod, and shock absorbers. Baer Racing disc brakes with dual master cylinders provide sure stops, and the brake lines, fuel lines, and fuel tank are all made of stainless steel. Power is provided by a fully balanced and blueprinted 331 "Windsor" V-8 professionally built by Coast High Performance and complete with aluminum cylinder heads with stainless steel valves, a roller valve train, forged pistons, and a professionally tuned mass flow fuel-injection system. A Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission unleashes the engine's performance potential and a Moser 9-inch limited-slip rear-end with 3.50:1 gears delivers massive power to the rear wheels. This particular car was built with two floors with sub-frame connectors sandwiched between to keep the car from flexing in the corners and keep an esthetic looking appearance of the undercarriage. An electric cooling fan and all-new wiring harness enhance reliability, while vital functions are monitored by a set of custom gauges. The custom interior and killer stereo were handled by Unique Audio and in addition to air conditioning and power steering; the Mustang is graced by Carroll Shelby's famous signature on the dash. A top-quality build with thousands of hours invested in the process, this outstanding Mustang provides excellent performance, ride, and handling. Properly garaged and only taken to shows, it demands serious consideration from hard-core Mustang enthusiasts.
