For sale is my 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Tribute.
This fastback runs smooth, stops straight and has side exhaust that is throaty but comfortable for drives.
As you can see from the pictures this fastback wears 37 years of patina paint from driving and living a car's life. Personally I think the paint looks fantastic and has wear marks in all the right places. This isn't a faux patina that has become popular with repaints. This fastback earned it's stripes (if you will) and the pictures do a good job of showing the paint and body condition. When I bought the car I checked the underside and didn't see any rust thru areas or surface rust that would compromise the chassis. Since my ownership it has lived in the garage.
Panel gaps and alignment are consistent with '60's mustangs. The body is straight with only a (new because my bike fell over) quarter sized dent on the driver side rear quarter panel (pics taken before dent happened). The headlight surround clip on the driver side is broken (was when I bought it) thus this panel is slightly out of alignment. The hood sits proud of the quarter panels but can be aligned by someone with more talent (and hands) than me.
The stance on this fastback is perfect. The car wears new 235/45 R17 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires at all four corners and wrap new Coy Wheels C67 17x8 rims with spinners. Reverse eye leaf springs, 1" drop, 620 springs, and 7/8" sway bar complete the stance. This fastback has a 3.25:1 gear ratio and 8" rear end.
The 289 V8 and 4-speed transmission work well together. The motor revs up nicely and the top loader has a nice notchy feel that confirms the gear shift. The clutch provides good feedback and the bite point is predicable. This is the same for gas and brakes as well which make rev-matching downshifts easy. All operations, including steering, are manual with no power assist.
The interior shows well and is clean, minimal and in good order. New sound deadening, carpet, door cards, and shifter boot compliment the interior. The Kenwood stereo (w/ CD player) is hidden away in the glove box and controlled by a remote. It also has an auxiliary port to connect to your cell phone. The cigarette lighter port can be used to charge your phone with an adapter.
The previous owner provided a list of upgrades and modifications that are summarized as follows:
Rebuilt 289 V8
4 bbl 600 cfm Holley double pumper carburetor

During my ownership I had a very reputable Mustang restoration/hotrod shop perform some work to help out aesthetics, safety, and improve the driving experience. This are as follows:
New 235/45 R17 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires
New Coy Wheels, C67 - 17x8, 4 3/4" backspace, machined finished
New tach
Electrical radiator fan with automatic controller
New air box

New battery tray
New battery quick disconnect
New power valve
New spark plugs, motor oil, brake fluid.
Tuned and timed
New Hurst shifter boot
New head gaskets (locking bolts) and collector gaskets. Repainted headers.
This fastback garners a lot of attention when we're driving. I've had people stop me and tell me don't ever paint it, 10-minute conversations and storytelling at the gas station, thumbs up, shout outs, etc.
This is a no non-sense, very solid mustang fastback that feels and sounds very period correct. Title is clean and in hand (no liens). Car will come with two sets of keys and some extra parts like rear seat cover and car manual.
