      This '68 Fastback came in, fairly presentable, but showing it's age along with some wear and tear. Over the years this old pony has been in a few accidents with repairs being made with varying degrees of skill.

      After stripping the old paint and then removing the existing body filler, it was determined that the right quarter panel could be repaired, but the left one would need to be replaced, along with the wheel house and trunk drop-off, due to rust and previous damage and repair attempts.

      The car also gets a new rear valance to replace the original damaged one. All the new panels are treated with a corrosion protection coat before being primered and painted.

      A few more steps and this Mustang will be on it's way to becoming a "Shelby Clone".

UPDATE

      More and more Shelby features are being added.

      The Shelby front nose piece arrived in four separate pieces, and had to be assembled and made to look as if it were one piece.

      Still in the paint booth wearing a fresh coat of Acupulco Blue.
      The Shelby trim has been installed and all painted together.

      The interior and the undercarriage also received a lot of attention.

      Decked out as a GT 350, this cloned Shelby made a respectable showing at auction.
