1966 Shelby GT350 “Replica”
The car has been built from a very nice '65 Fastback body some years ago, and presents superbly in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes done to original GT350 Shelby specifications.
Mechanically this Shelby is powered by a 302ci Windsor V8 recently refreshed by Kanaris Race Engines of Melbourne with aluminium heads, Edelbrock Performer aluminium intake, Marshal hydraulic cam, 600 cfm Holley and electronic ignition. Believed to be turning around 350 flywheel hp.
Breathing through correct Shelby style Tri-Y headers, and nice 2 1/4" dual system with Gibson mufflers. Engine also features a correct large pulley alternator, and is dressed with correct Shelby rocker covers and finned alloy sump. Cooling is managed by a correct radiator, cowl and Hi-Po engine fan. The engine bay also features the correct export brace and plenum support.
Gearbox is a factory close ratio Top Loader 4 speed manual, with original Ford shifter in excellent condition, running through to a 28 spline 3.5:1 Detroit Locker 9 inch diff located by correct Shelby Traction Masters underide bars.
The car was restored in the USA in 1999 and imported in to Australia around 2005. The paint and body still presents well . Pictures of body prep during resto are available.
The car features the classic '65 GT350R front apron and bumper with accompanying bonnet in fiberglass with fully functional hood scoop. The body also features correct functioning rear brake scoops and ducts, and the iconic '66 rear quarter windows show the detail put into this car at the time. All chrome and stainless trims appear authentic and in excellent condition.
Inside is an excellent correct black interior, an original Ford wood grain steering wheel and centre cap, correct Shelby style 9000rpm dash mounted tacho with a healthy 6250rpm redline, and the seat belts are correct Shelby lap style with quick release buckles. The rear seat is a fold down style lined with unmolested rear plastics.
Suspension feels as new with genuine Koni adjustable shocks front and rear. Front brakes are Kelsey Hayes 4 piston calipers and discs with correct KH master cylinder. Wheels are 15" Magnum 500s with 7" fronts and 8" rears.
This is a very nice Shelby tribute built some years ago, the quality has stood the test of time. The supporting documentation is substantial and includes the original title doc from Oklahoma, USA in 1998.Note - Car is stored with owner. Contact Ben Finnis to arrange your inspection - 0411 744 190
