1968 Ford Mustang 2dr Fastback Shelby GT350
1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350! Orig. Build Sheet & Window Sticker, #s Matching
The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1968, and from 1969 to 1970 by Ford. The 1965–1966 cars were the smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models. These cars are often called "Cobras", which was the Ford-powered AC-based two-seat sports car also produced by Shelby American during the same period. The 1967 redesign made for a heavier Mustang, along with a longer, fiberglass hood, and new front and rear fascias. The design of the original 1965 version was evident, but these styling upgrades gave the car a more aggressive appearance and achieved Carroll Shelby's goal of differentiating his car from the Mustang on which it was based. The separate high-beam headlamps in the grille added more character, while a thin, chrome front bumper sat below a mesh grille with the classic "Shelby GT350" logo in place.
The small hood scoop was there to deliver fresh air to the engine. Shelby also included new, horizontal sequential taillights (sourced from a '67 Cougar in 1967 and a '65 Thunderbird in 1968) and an integrated Kamm-type rear spoiler. Functional rear brake-cooling scoops adorned the rear quarter panels. Ten-spoke, fifteen-inch, cast-aluminum rims were the wheel choice with Goodyear white-lettered radials.
This is beautiful 1968 GT350, this car turns heads everywhere it goes. It is equipped with a superb 302/automatic drivetrain in the correct Black interior and correct Raven Black paint. If you're in the market for a classic that's the perfect fit for sunny show fields and world class collections, it's the car you've been waiting for!
In 1968 Shelby rekindled his relationship with Hertz Rent-a-Car to resurrect their "Rent-a-Racer" program with Shelby Mustangs as part of Hertz's Sports Car Club fleet. Out of the total 1253 Fastback's made 224 were commissioned by Hertz therefore leaving only 1,029 cars that were delivered to the public. In 1968 the 289ci V8 was replaced with a factory 302 V8 using an aluminum Cobra intake manifold and Holley 600 cfm carb.
One of only 1029 GT350 Fastback's produced in 1968, this striking GT350 is very well documented with a FULL binder worth of all repair and service records since new. This GT350 has had 4 owners during its lifetime and is in great condition. This car is equipped with an automatic transmission, Power steering, power brakes, fold down back seat, tilt wheel, original hub caps, AM radio, and shoulder harness. The car has been painted once, and still retains the original interior in excellent condition. The car also comes with the original Build Sheet, Sales Order, Installment Contract, Marti Report, and a copy of the original title.
