BLUE MONKEY 289 V8, AUTO, WILWOOD PWR FRONT DISCS, EXC RESTO, GR8 PAINT/INT, A+!

This excellent representation of a Shelby GT-350 convertible provides the look of a true masterpiece, for half the cost of a production Shelby of the era. Shelby fans will remember that shortages meant convertible GT350s were not introduced until 1968. Instead, this quality build takes us back to see what the 1967 Shelby GT350 convertible would have been prior to its actual release.

This was clearly a build that spared no expense, making this Mustang spiritually very close to its '68 Shelby softtop cousins. In fact, we have the large stack of receipts dating all from the last couple of years detailing the tens of thousands invested in restoring this Mustang, and giving it a true high performance attitude. All the important stuff is here, including a fiberglass hood, hood pins, extended nose, quarter panel scoops, and trunk lid spoiler. The wide taillights even have the cool sequential turn signals, and there's a snake-bitten gas cap in the center. The most distinctive feature are the close-set driving lights in the center of the grille, which not all of Shelby's original cars even got in '67. There's correct badging all around the car, and no one will overlook the iconic Shelby 10-spoke wheels. So yes, this total package will easily be a favorite of even the experts. In fact, the only part that most people won't be able to recognize straight from Shelby's factory is the paint. And let's face it, the bold and new application of Viper blue with white racing strips just sticks out in all the best ways.

The investment didn't just stop with the exterior. The new black vinyl was installed to make this one exceptionally comfortable. There are new seats with modern bolstering, and in between these buckets is a comfortable center console with the always welcomed addition of cup holders. Even the stereo has a modern upgrade to an AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary hookup, so you can plug in the most modern tunes. Of course, it's hard to notice this one because it's a RetroSound unit that retains the original knob-style appearance. But this creation isn't just about more modern comfort. Owing a classic Shelby Mustang is all about the driving experience, and that's why the wood-rimmed steering wheel is drop-dead gorgeous, and really sets the tone inside. Plus, there's the roll bar behind the seats, so when you open the power folding roof, you can let the world know you mean business.

The essence of the GT350 was a cackling small block, and this convertible doesn't disappoint with a performance-built 289 cubic-inch V8. The exceptionally tidy engine bay has plenty of flash that includes the Cobra air cleaner, and chrome valve covers. But beneath this, the new crate motor from Blue Monkey Performance has plenty of substance. It has been enhanced with go-fast goodies that include Edelbrock Thunder Series 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, ARP rod bolts, flat top pistons, Comp Cams mild performance camshaft, hardened exhaust seats, and headers. So this motor fires up on command, and makes everyone stand at attention with the growl of the JBA dual exhaust. Power gets to the ground via the stout C4 three-speed automatic, on its way to the Ford 8-inch rear end running a versatile 3.25 ratio. Because this one can outperform the original Shelbys, it was also fitted with a Wilwood front disc brake package for the ultimate in control.

Now you know there was serious money invested in not only showing us what a '67 GT350 convertible would be, but also the custom build has the performance to surpass this muscle car legend. Best of all, by paying a fraction of a GT350 convertibles's price means you won't be afraid to really enjoy and show off this gem. Call today!!
