    I literally hauled this thing out of a barn. It's a 37k mile original GT350 car, I did a ton of homework on the car before the purchase. Including contacting the SAAC.

    The car was barely running when I found it. The previous owner told me he had driven 200 miles in the last 15 years and it's been sitting in his barn since.

    The body and paint are amazing, and it is believed to be original from everyone I've let take a look at it. It needs some fiberglass and paint touch ups on the nose but other than that I'm leaving it as is.

    So far the carburetor & AC compressor have been rebuilt, recored & repainted the radiator, replaced the waterpump, thermostat, coil, condensor, plugs & wires, belts, Autolite cap, ammeter, fuel tank, sending unit, stainless fuel lines, various clamps and red stripe hoses. The car is completely solid with only minimal rust in the ordinary places. I couldn't be happier with it.

    Congratulations! What a great color combo.
    You gotta share specifics on how you found it, and what she cost!

    Believe it or not surfing my local Craigslist. That's the only place the guy had it listed. It was listed for a fair market price but I knocked him down 22k dollars. Not kidding. I'm not going to give you exact numbers but it wasn't cheap.

    Thanks!

    I appreciate it.

    Haha I've been a Mustang fanatic since I was young and the only thing that's changed is I now have more money.



    Thanks.

    congrats, great find. The first Shelby I purchased in 1978 was an identical red 4 speed GT500 #1850.

    Knocked him down 22k....follows that yp with it wasn't cheap.

    Haha.. just in case we thought 22k off a car would be a cheap car.

    All that aside..

    Awesome find. Anything else fun hiding in his barn?
