Vehicle Description

This 1968 Mustang had been brought up to Shelby GT350 specification with a 5.7 litre four-valve Cleveland V8 and C6 automatic gearbox capable of propelling the car from 0-60mph in 7 seconds and taking it (in a controlled environment) all the way up to 140mph.
The reconstruction work didn’t stop with the engine and box and this GT350 “tribute” has all the regular Shelby features: body panels, ‘ram-air’ fibreglass hood, 10-spoke Shelby wheels, Moto Lita Cobra slot steering wheel, Posi-traction differential, Shelby gauges, T-handle shifter, seatbelts, floor mats and a host of minor Shelby signature components. It even has the correct sequential tail-lights – which is pretty vorsprung durch technik for 1968 when you think about it.
BLZ 78 has loads of other upgrades, including the Holly 600 4-barrel carburettor, MSD electronic ignition and aluminium radiator. It also has a retro Mustang radio with MP3 memory stick connection, but to be honest, all the in-car entertainment you want is under the bonnet.
The vendor tells us that the car is a genuine rust-free Mustang in wonderful condition which he has owned for five years and says that it is reliable and fun to drive. The car is a recent UK import, is UK registered and has an MOT to May 2020. It certainly is a cracker in its Candy Apple red paintwork and the power-hood and the interior and engine bay are all similarly impressive – not concours but very, very clean.
This may not be a genuine Shelby but it looks like a Shelby, goes like a Shelby, and sounds like a Shelby. If you want the real thing you will have to look hard – they only made 404 convertibles in 1968 - and you also have to pay at least three times as much as the very reasonable quoted estimate.
