1966 FORD MUSTANG SHELBY HERTZ GT 350 REPLICA - £59,750 sensibl...
The car is now with Pilgrim Cars West Sussex
This particular car is certainly one the very best versions of the SHELBY HERTZ GT350 (replica) in the UK. I bought this myself from America and imported it again, myself from there. Upon its arrival I sent it to THE Mustang workshop who specialise in Mustangs only engineering.
They are the best! They did a considerable amount of work on my car to get it to the immaculate condition it now is. All work conforms to both UK and EU specifications for road use! I have photos of some of the work carried out in the UK.
The engine was rebuilt. Including all new tappets, springs, pushrods, sump gasket set, head gaskets, roller rocker nuts, new correct high performance camshaft (the one it replaced was incorrect made for Drag racing)tappets inlet and exhaust manifold gaskets.
The tappets were adjusted and the carburettor was re-tuned. Oil and filter replaced, new high volume oil pump. The valves removed from both heads cleaned and re-seated. So within less than a thousand miles the engine has been stripped and rebuilt twice.
The milage is correct and substanceated!
The motor is a correct 1966 Windsor block, the casting number starts with C6 which is C=1960s and the 6 means 66 Ford.
The motor has been bored and stoked to make the cubic inch a 348 ci displacement instead of 289 cubic inches but from the outside there arent any visual differences for the block itself. This added performance is fully utilised with the addition of a five-speed manual transmission (this gives more milage and revs ).
In the engine bay are Shelby-correct pieces like the bracer bar and Cobra valve covers, The V8 was rebuilt in the USA and arriving in the UK had only done 414 miles. I have only done a further 800 odd since. The high performance camshaft is a full three-angle valve service,
and the correct Holly and 289 filter four-barrel carburettors set. There is a real Shelby manufacturers metal label on door sills and in the engine bay.
The car has been homologated to comply with all UK and EU standards. This fastback has been built as an accurate reflection of Hertz cars on the inside and out.
It is a superb quality build/restoration that is much more correct than normal. Fully operational side scoops, hood closure pins and air scoop. The iconic American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, with hard to find Goodrich tyres (with minimal wear)
Pristine black interior. It has new components, the comfort-weave seats are firm and unmarked. The door panels feel firm as you close them. The GT350 carpets are virtually unworn. On the glovebox is a real Carroll Shelby signature. The wood grained Shelby steering wheel and correct full five round gauge panel plus are original.
Date correct vintage push button radio (actually it is a replica with modern wiring and works fine). There is also a fire extinguisher.
The gear stick shift has a white five speed marked knob (unusual). The Cobra tach on the dash is again the correct 9000 rev version. There are also 1966 racing lap safety belts.
The engine bay has numerous Shelby-correct pieces like the bracer bar and Cobra valve covers, even the maker stamp (and a Hertz brake warning sticker on the dash board). The 5 speed box uses less fuel on longer runs!
Ron Morris Performance adjustable front suspension (these are far more stable than the original Koni Shocks (but can be replaced by the Konis if the buyer wants to do it) I prefer the Morris units. Large Baer slotted & vented front disc brakes.
The car comes with a dedicated Licence UK plate SHM 66D = SHELBY HERTZ MUSTANG 1966. the licence plate holder is a Rent a Racer version much favoured by early owners.
Not a typical 53 year old car! I am fully confident that whoever buys will be absolutely delighted with this car! It really is nearly concourse condition.
Comes with three sets of keys.
