DESCRIPTIONTalk about a wolf in sheep's clothing, this amazing 1966 Mustang convertible, SHELBY TRIBUTE CAR, looks like a clean, RED convertible with a high quality rotisserie restoration, but, when you look a little closer, things like the 4 wheel , Baer disc brakes, 4 piston, with forced air cooling: the 17" American Racing Carroll Shelby wheels with BF Goodrich G force racing tires and a slight raked height. Under the hood is a take no prisoners, a Ford racing Z427 cubic inch 535 horsepower beast. It is designed to pound anything with less than 600 HP. It is attached to a 4 speed AOD automatic transmission with a B&M racing shifter , a 9" Ford rear end, and a very heavily fortified suspension and reinforced frame. This Mustang is built to run. Best of all it is not just some Shelby Clone with oversized fender flares that attracts all sorts of unwanted attention. Just like the best sleepers, this one keeps a low profile until it is time to crack the throttle. By then you better be holding on tight because all hell is going to break loose. The body work is an overall tribute to this cars outstanding workmanship. Once you see how good the paint and finish work is, you will have no doubt about the quality of the vehicle itself. No Mustang ever came out of the factory this straight and well painted. The doors fit beautifully. The new custom made all steel hood and the new trunk offer excellent gaps. The Corvette red paint has been wet sanded and buffed to a brilliant shine. They say nothing looks better than red when done right, and this car certainly qualifies as the best. Your knees will get weak when you see this car in the sunlight. The badging is true Mustang showing the 427 cubic inch engine and with the Carroll Shelby snake on the gas cap. The car was built and beautifully, TOP QUALITY finished by Dick's Hot Rod Shop, the premier builder, in Lakeville, Minnesota. There are less than 1000 miles on this fine vehicle THIS . COMES WITH: 1.
