250 hp, 302 cu. in. overhead valve V-8 engine, Holly 600 CFM carburetor, automatic transmission, heavy-duty suspension, and power front disc and rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 108 in.
This iconic Shelby GT350 convertible promises to fill the void of needing a little excitement in any collection. Presented with a high quality restoration on a straight body, this example has several appealing features, including power steering, power brakes, a power top, and air conditioning. The engine compartment has a nearly new fit and finish, as with all components appearing correct, including the fender-mounted Shelby tag. Inspection of the body reveals very good panel alignment and door gaps, as well as excellent chrome, stainless, and glass. With the exception of an aftermarket radio, the interior appears correct, and the upholstery has the fit and feel of originality that cannot be found on reproduction kits. The chassis also has been restored and shows very little signs of road use. This is a great opportunity to own one of the great legends of automobile history.
Marti Report included.
