This is built with effort and passion. Low budget build with mostly used parts
I was inspired by my grandpa to purchase this car as a “tribute” car to him. He passed on the one he had to me when I was about 10-11 years old and it became my first car. It was a bond we shared.
When I bought the car, it was nothing but a shell. Body only. Original condition! Pretty good at that. I was actually a tad spooked to start cutting, and chopping. But, I heard my dad saying,, “Man, that’s going to be cool!” So, I dove in!
It was a classic mustang. I was looking for a 60s mustang. But I decided to settle for this since it was a classic mustang that runs and drives.
This is my 4th Mustang. I had a 2015 V6 with turbo, but missed the rumble of the V8.
Someone had started the restoration by disassembly and all parts were in boxes so it was a small gamble but I wanted to give it a go.
I have always loved Mustangs, and Shelby’s in particular. I’ve owned several Mustangs, and 2 Shelby’s in the past, a 1967 and a 1969, both GT350’s.
The car has won a lot of awards like Best Shelby for 07 to 09 at Mustang Week and was in the inside 57 at Ponies in the Smokies in March 2019 representing the 07 model.
It was my boyhood dream car, to drive a 67 Shelby mustang.
As a child, I dreamed of owning a Mustang. It took me almost 40 years, but, I finally got my dream.
