If you're tired of admiring Shelby cars from a distance, get behind the wheel of one with this awesome 1968 Shelby GT350 tribute. Decked in full Shelby regalia with a hot 302 under the hood, this frame-up restored Mustang carries on the Shelby spirit by looking awesome and punishing pavement with the best of them.

With crisp lines and straight panels, the amount of prep work invested in this body is obvious from every angle. A coat of Lime Gold paint right off of the 1968 Ford options list covers that body, accented by white Shelby rocker stripes on the side and rally stripes up top. The look is quintessential Shelby and sure to please any Ford enthusiast.

Ornamentation was kept authentic with a fiberglass hood, Marchal fog lights and a black mesh grille added to the front end. At the sides, Shelby badging and side vents further enhance the look. A white canvas top covers the roll bar and seals against clean stainless and factory fresh glass.

Under the hood, a Ford 302 utilizes a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold and Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads to develop power worthy of the GT350 look. Sporting a Shelby-style air cleaner, finned valve covers and numerous period correct decals, the bay does a convincing job at looking factory correct as well. Breathing through a set of headers connected to a true dual system with Flowmaster mufflers, the exhaust note lets everyone know this Mustang means business.

Backing that 302 is a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission that channels power down the driveshaft and out to the Ford 9-inch Traction Lock differential packed with 3.50 gears. A stock suspension retains its A-arm and leaf spring configuration while benefitting front 1" sway bars at the front and rear. Being a proper Shelby tribute, power steering and power brakes are part of the package. At the corners, 10-spoke Shelby wheels are wrapped in Goodyear rubber.

Behind the doors, a full Shelby interior completes the package with a Shelby center console sitting between saddle bucket seats. All the key pieces are here including a 140mph speedometer and 8k rpm tachometer. Amenities include factory-style air conditioning and a modern Pioneer CD player.

Documentation includes a small display that highlights the Shelby components included in the build.

While authenticity is great, it will be the last thing on your mind while rowing through the gears on this awesome convertible. Don't miss the chance to bring this one home. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for information on this awesome Mustang.
