1966 GT 350 Hurst Shelby Mustang

Fred Piluso

This factory mostly original 1966 Mustang stands out in any crowd. With its PPG black on black finish sporting dual gold racing stripes going over the roof from the hood to the trunk it has a stance that say's "Let's Race". Built to Cruise, it took about a year to get it all together and make it what it is. It has taken Best of Show at the Honolulu Mustang Show! Looking back into its history you just know that this "Early Times" club member has raced in the 60's right here in the Cleveland Ohio area. Maybe you sat next to it a light one summer night! Who Won?????

It has the correct badges on the body and is sitting on a set of "Special Hertz Sports Car Club" 14 inch wheels. The engine is the correct 1966 Ford 289 cubic inch with solid lifters and has a Holley carburetor sitting on a dealer installed option Paxton intake manifold with a belt spinning a Paxton Supercharger blowing an air/fuel combination into a balanced assembly built by Traco Custom Engine's of Los Angeles, California. The bottom of this engine has a Cobra oil pan to hold the vital lube juice and keep it cool and a Special made set of Doug's headers help get the spent gasses out and away from the engine. Behind this powerful engine is a 66 Ford Aluminum T-10 4 speed transmission with the stock shifter sitting on top of it. This transfers the power back to a set of 3:83 to 1 gears wrapped in positraction to help put that torque to the wheels.

This was not driven by "Mustang Sally". With the hood scoop and the pins holding it all down and a set of Simpson seat belts to keep you in the seat when those competition brakes star grabbing after a quick side by side run down the road, you just know that this is a "Big Boy's Toy".
