San Francisco Sports Cars offers a stunning recreation of the 1965 Shelby GT350R for sale. Starting with a rust free and very straight donor '65 Mustang Fastback, the builder of this Shelby GT350R tribute spent countless hours recreating his boyhood dream car. The body & chassis were stripped to bare metal, rotisserie style, before being completely resprayed. An exhaustively detailed build sheet is available for potential buyers. For now we'll include some highlights of the build:
Powered by a period correct 289 that has been converted to a full roller valvetrain. The appearance of the engine and engine bay are as close to original as possible down to the R model valve covers, authentic Shelby intake manifold, intake plenum, Monte Carlo bar and export brace.
The transmission is a Tremec World Class T-5 5-speed with a Ford Motorsport clutch sending power to a 4.11 geared 9 inch differential. Koni shocks, a panhard bar, boxed rear control arms, larger sway bars and traction bars are used to approximate the original R suspension.
The front disc brakes utilize 4 piston Kelsey-Hayes calipers and oversized rear drums.
The exterior is as correct as can be. A fiberglass front apron with functional brake cooling ducts pairs with an authentic Shelby grille nose piece and a fiberglass hood with functional cold air duct. The rocker panel stripes, correctly spaced Guardsman Blue racing stripes over Wimbledon White are an exact recreation of the original paint & graphics. The trunk lid is made of lightweight fiberglass. Inside the trunk is the relocated battery and reproduction R-model fuel cell with a quick filler. All glass has been replaced with lexan. The side windows raise and lower.
The inside of the car has been completely stripped and features a welded, four-point roll bar, correct bucket seats, a Cobra wood rim steering wheel, Shelby gauges and Carrol Shelby's autograph on the radio delete plate.
All that's left to do is turn the key and race!
