I know, I know, whats this have to do with the Civil War...well nothing, but If you like cars like
I do, in particular extremely fast ones, you will love this one. A 1966 Shelby mustang, one of 2300 built in 1966. I bought this car as a basket case in 1993. My goal was to vintage race this car as it was eligible to run B production. Sitting in a garage for 20 years, it needed alot of work. One good thing was , all the original parts were there. The block, the original 289 was sitting in the front seat. The carborator was under the gas pedal and the pistons were in the trunk. The original 3 inch competition seat belts were also in the trunk. Long story short...it took about a year to restore it to near perfection. The glove box was sent to California for Carroll Shelbys signature.The car was totally documented with every bit of paperwork from the day it left the factory. The car was not user friendly and very scary to drive. This car would make your heart pump real fast. The original 289 was built to make it a legal B production race engine. 500 horsepower with an original Paxton blower in a car that weighed 2800 pounds. I kept the car for 13 years, drove it every chance I could, all the car shows and cruise nights. It got to the point the car was too expensive to keep, so I sold it to a collector in Indiana. Enter the Subaru WRX, another badass for alot less money.
