LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback
With only 525 street 1965 Shelby GT350’s ever produced from the factory, these cars have become extremely valuable and sought after by collectors. Most of these cars have been tucked away in private collections and never driven in order to preserve the value. The car offered for sale is a tribute done to original 1965 specification that was built to be used and enjoyed without the worry of devaluing an original. Virtually undisguisable from an original, other than the VIN number.
This vision started when this 2+2 was purchased from the estate of a longtime Mustang collector in Long Beach, California. This San Jose, California built Mustang fastback had been in California and Arizona from day one. The beautiful California body was the perfect candidate to complete a concours rotisserie restoration to original 65 Shelby GT350 specifications. Concours details include overspray of undercarriage and detail of suspension to MCA/SAAC standards. The restoration process which took over 2,000 hours, started with the complete strip down of the chassis to bare metal, mounting on a rotisserie, then sealing the body and painting in the correct Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue LeMans stripes. The paint process included the appropriate and correct red oxide undercarriage with body color overspray.
Under the hood looks very stock and unsuspecting but, the engine has been upgraded for improved performance and reliability. The powerplant started with a 302 block, balanced and blueprinted with Crower crank, Eagle H-Beam rods, Comp Cams Nostaglia roller cam ,roller lifters and roller rockers, 289 hi-po dual point distributor, 10:1 JE flat top forged pistons, 351 Windsor closed chamber heads ported and polished with stainless steel valves and ARP bolts used throughout. The engine is dressed with the correct Shelby oil pressure extension and all the proper Cobra script aluminum oil pan, Cobra intake manifold and Cobra valve covers. This powerplant is backed by a Ford Top loader 4-speed with Hurst comp plus shifter and correct Ford shifter handle. Exhaust consists of Tri-Y headers into Glass pack mufflers that are side exiting. The power is put to the ground by a proper ’65 style 9-inch rear with a 3.89:1 gear ratio and incorporating a Detroit locker.
All the special Shelby body, chassis and interior modifications that were designed in the 1965 Shelbys were incorporated into this build. Shelby performed many changes to the base K code 2+2 fastback chassis once it arrived at his plant, specifically to homologate the GT350 for racing. In the engine compartment these modifications include the reinforced cowl, one-piece export brace and Monte Carlo bar and relocation of the battery into the trunk. The suspension was redesigned by lowering the upper control arms by 1 inch, utilizing a quick steering idler and Pitman arm, 1” sway bar, override traction bars, rear suspension snubbers and axle limiting cables. To complete the handling package are Koni “D” adjustable shocks and Cragar Shelby 15-inch wheels with Goodyear Eagle GT radial tires.
The interior incorporates all the Shelby changes including the 15” Shelby Wood Steering wheel, Shelby gauge pod with CS Tachometer and oil pressure gauges, radio delete block off plate, relocated momentary horn switch, 3-inch competition lap belts, and the special fiberglass rear package tray with spare tire mounting.
This four-year labour intensive build was just completed to the highest show standards to be able to be shown or driven just like Carroll Shelby intended. Want the driving experience of a 1965 Shelby without the expense or risk? Then don’t miss the opportunity to add this Shelby tribute to your garage today!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at
