It’s a little known fact that back in 1964 there was an independent rear suspension (IRS) designed for the Mustang by Carroll Shelby’s crew. It never eventuated, most probably due to budget constraits but the Original Crew who worked on the car has wondered all these years how well it would have worked. So they set about finding out.
Arguably one of the best aspects of Mustangs through the years is the fact that they are infinitely customizable. It’s easy to find mods and custom parts for even the older Mustang Models — and what you can’t find, it’s easy to fabricate. That is just what Glen Martyn did with this truly unique 1966 Mustang Fastback model that he’s owned for more than two decades.
Well we can’t really remember when I updated you all on my very own project car. After packing up shop in Australia and moving to London, England it’s been slow going on the restoration front. However just this past week I’ve finally progressed a little. Given it’s only been purchasing of the air conditioning solution but any progress is good progress. Right?
We don’t often see genuine Shelby examples go to auction outside of the US so it’s refreshing to see this lovely 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback in Nightmist Blue up for auction on September 7th at The RM Sotheby’s auction in London, England.
