History
I purchased it in Sept 75' while attending college in VA. I was a poor 20 year old student but I wanted a 65-68 Fastback. It ran and had a hideous re paint but I could afford it so I bought it. It has been with me most of my life like an old friend. I restored it in 80-81 then immediately wrecked it. It sat for 23 years as life moved on. I finished the second and very complete resto in 03'. This time as a Shelby clone.
