An­other Shelby GT350?

Classic Driver - - LETTERS -

You say that this is New Zealand’s only gen­uine Shelby GT-350 Mus­tang. But I think Mike Mor­ton who owns the Mad Butcher chain owns one.

His has a fac­tory Pax­ton su­per­charger. I re­mem­ber read­ing a story about it. Same colour etc. Gary, from the Clas­sic Driver web­site TH What was said in the story in CD54 is this is the only ’65 Shelby GT-350 in New Zealand, one of only 562 built. Ac­cord­ing to the or­a­cle of all things Shelby, the “Shelby World Reg­is­ter”, the Mor­ton car is a 1966 Shelby GT-350 (one of 2378 built that year) with an au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. The blower is a re­pro­duc­tion Pax­ton unit, fit­ted by Craig Conolly in San Diego in 1993.
