GT350 Restoration

The GT350 restoration is coming along. The metal repairs are almost done and now check panel fit and gaps before starting body work.

I have been busy restoring every thing else. Here is the rear axel I finished last week.

Yes, it was in my shop fire. It was not burned but the smoke damage was so bad it required disassembly. I thought if I had to take it apart I might as well restore it.

I sat in it which is about as close to ever driving a Shelby that I'll ever get----except of course for my Poor Man's Shelby! :)

They really do not drive that much differently than a GT Mustang. However the cost of admittance is a bit more.

I had a great fathers day weekend. I sold our red 68 HCS and worked on the GT350 at R&A Motorsports to make it a roller for the trip home.
