A few weeks ago reader Scott M. sent in photos of his lawnmower repair shop find. The vehicles have since been moved to a new location, so Scott decided to stop by to snap a few photos and to check if the owner is ready to sell. Unfortunately, they are still not for sale, but he did stumble across something very interesting that we think you are going to want to see...
Recognize these Fastbacks?
These are the cars that were in the barn that appeared to be collapsing on them. We are not sure if their new resting place is any better though. They are now left entirely exposed to the elements with no chance of rescue in the foreseeable future.
If you think that is sad then you are not going to want to see this. There are more Mustangs than we had previously thought and they too are strewn about outside without much protection besides these storage containers.
The Mach 1 in the middle is probably the first thing that caught your eye. That's a shame, but wait until you see what is sitting right next to it...
It doesn't look like much, but take a closer look.
The engine is long gone, so no hints in here. Or are there?
Some obvious interior modifications, but no definite giveaways.
If you haven't figured it out yet, then go ahead and read the badge on the back. That's right, this is presumably a 1966 Shelby GT350 and it has been left out to rot! Scott spoke to the owner to try and get some details. Here is what he found out,
The owner says this is a 1966 GT350 "carry over". After some research, I found out that the first 252 GT350s of 1966 where actually built from 1965 mustangs. See carryovergt350.com. He says, this is one of them. Story is a guy in the army bought it new in LA California, raced it, and then got papers to transfer to Hunter Army Base in Savannah, GA. The car has been raced, dragged, and was even a gasser at one time (yes solid axle front end too) then the current owner bought it in 1982 for $2,000. He bought it in the same condition it's in today and still wants to restore it someday, so not for sale. Recently he lost it's storage and here it sits outside.
