1965 Shelby GT350 replica Racecar
Since we had a REAL restored 65 Shelby race car we hated to tear up the real
thing so we built the replica of our 5S073 the same year we restored the original. I
wanted one I could beat on and here it is. I want to give this car a hug every time I
walk by it because we have had a lot of fun together. There's nothing like driving a
65 Mustang at 150 MPH @ 8000 RPM at Charlotte, VIR, Nashville and other tracks.
Finished 2nd at the 40th Anniversary Mustang Celebration hosted at the Nashville
Motor Speedway. Finished 3rd at the 2006 Shelby race at VIR. Raced with NASA
Racing many years and won races and was very competitive against the newest of
all types of Mustangs. Equipped with a 550 H.P. 302 and a Jerrico 4-speed. Owned
