Shelby Mustang Convertible GT350
Acapulco Blue - Serial #:
351 Windsor / Automatic
My dream car!
That's about all I need to say except that I took it
completely apart and restored it in 8 weeks time. Just
in time for a Shelby Nationals event in Atlanta where the
car took a first place popular vote.
The car had a 351 Windsor
that had never been out of the car and with a/c, tilt and
all the options, it made a great parade car. I drove
and enjoyed this car for quite a few years and it never
failed to gather a lot of attention. I think over time
I just became very wary of driving a car that they only made
194 of. I ended up trading it for a Sunbeam Tiger (not
toaster) and some cash. This was at a time where it
was important to have money instead of cars.
I always loved the
Acapulco Blue color and vowed that someday I would return to
the car hobby and if possible, the car would be that color.
This is the inspiration for the 69 Mustang Convertible that
I now own. I feel better about personalizing the
regular Mustang to my tastes. Wonder where this car is
