Lot 126: Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Recreation

HISTORIC COLLECTORS MOTORCARS, Coys (29 June 2013)

The original pony car, Ford's Mustang soon established itself as one of the cult cars of the Sixties following its introduction in 1964. Available with either 2.8 litre six cylinder, 4.2 litre or 4.7 litre V8 engines, it was also to prove one of Ford's greatest sellers. It was with the largest engine, however, that the Mustang got the kick it really deserved in the form of the Shelby developed 350GT; Ford was keen to take on the Corvettes of rival Chevrolet in SCCA events and Carroll Shelby was commissioned to adapt his experiences with the AC Cobra and Ford GT40 to the Mustang. The result was a car transformed: power for the 4,727cc Hi-Po V8 rose from 271bhp to 306bhp at 5,000rpm, via a four barrel Holley carburettor, Shelby camshaft and a competition exhaust system exiting just forward of the rear wheels, enabling the GT350 to top 125mph and reach 0-60mph in around 7.0 seconds; the coil spring independent front suspension was uprated and a stiff anti-roll bar added, along with a heavy duty Galaxie rear axle with anti-tramp bars and ventilated front disc brakes. The combination ensured success on both road and track. This stunning GT350-H recreation must be the Ultimate 'cult' car. Finished in stunning crisp black coachwork with gold stripes, over black interior. The car was converted to 350GT specification by the renowned Blue Mustang workshop in Hertfordshire. A well-known car within Mustang circles- for the connoisseur.
