Well, here she is! I have been in the restoration process for the past 10 months since a deer decided to collide with my 66 Mustang Convertible. The past 2 months have been spent mostly on her when I wasn't at work. The exterior has been totally redone and the interior was mostly redone. Still only 68,000 miles with all numbers matching drivetrain that runs great. Now if the parts fairy can drop off the new 5-speed, stroker engine, disc brakes, and air conditoning ... I will really be happy. Just wanted to share it with you guys. :rotf:

Very nice indeed!! I'm jealous, always wanted a REAL Shelby!! :thumbsup:

Sorry ... not a real Shelby, just a copy. I started with a completely stock convertible and made a few minor changes. If it was a true Shelby ... on 6 - 12 actual convertibles believed to be made in 1966 ... I would be in the money.

still, a nice looking car. What exhaust is that?

Just a midas special. Tri-Y headers with 2 1/4" pipe thru what they called "truck turbo" mufflers with chrome tips from a 69 or 70 I believe. Nice tone though.

Looks great :thumbsup: 68k miles is also good.

If your mufflers are round bullet shaped canisters they may be manufactured by areoturbine (midas was listed as one vendor on where to buy them). They may even oem for borla stingers and SLP loudmouth but not quite sure but the resonoators are similar in design. When I was searching for an aftermarket exaust for my 01 I had a great interest in them and also found a link that the SLP's were oem buyers of the areoturbine muffler (may just be speculation).
