Comes with a UK History File, matching spare wheel and tools and 2 sets of keys.
A quite outstanding representation of one of the 404 Shelby Mustang GT350 Convertible’s produced in 1968 making it as close to the real thing as is reasonably possible.
We have just completed a 1200-mile trip to the Scottish Highlands where this Mustang performed faultlessly and did not miss a beat. Not bad for a 54-year-old car driving some of the most challenging (and stunning) roads in the UK.
