He built the Mustang to take him to highschool – I was lucky if I could get a ride from a friend, otherwise it would be my two legs 🙂

Ahhhhh America…..

Lucky guy 🙂

I always enjoy anything Mustang related. I was lucky enough to drive a 1967 Fastback in high school and for a short period during my college years. I learned how to rebuild the 289 2V engine at a local junior college and it ran pretty good but the drum brakes provided a couple of scary moments here and there. Sadly, it’s been 11 years since it’s seen any sunlight, though it always earns a spot on my annual “to do” list at the start of the new year.

This is relevant to my interests, especially if California – SB 1239 passes. I don’t mind the Shelby paint on a non-Shelby as long as he freely admits it’s not a genuine GT350. Also, it makes it easier for the real ones to hide in plain sight. The video would have been better if we had gotten to hear a couple long pulls on the throttle.

I cut my teeth on a 1965 GT after high school. It had a the factory 289 Hi-Po, front discs, and factory four speed, with the original steel mags. I can’t believe I ever sold that car back in 1995 or so for some ridiculous amount, considering what mundane “classics” go for today. The car was so easy to work on, and was a kick to drive. I put thousands and thousands of miles on that car, and even used it as my driver while working as a courier in college. I had that car dialed in pretty well, but… Read more »

And by “ridiculous amount”, I mean “paltry sum.” 😉

A ’65 Hipo 4 speed is a high dollar car these days. Very nice!

A tastefully done rest-mod Mustang for certain …. though … err .. I’d prefer it not have the Shelby GT350 cues that have a tendency to deceive . Have a bit of respect for the originals Mr Lee as well as for those who have paid the price to own them and paint this sweet resto-mod pony up in something a little more original rather than a counterfeit Shelby make up job .

As the owner of a GT350 “clone”, I never get the “have some respect” type of comments. I’ve never once met a person with a GT350 clone that is anything other than forthcoming about the car’s pedigree.

But more importantly, I’ve known several owners of real Shelbys who have actually built/bought clones so they could get the driving pleasure without the risk to their “investment”. Do those guys therefore lack self respect? Hmm.
