Vick K 1965 GT-350 Replica

"Fastback Shelby GT 350 Conversion"

This car started as a 1965 Fastback 289V8..4 Speed. I wanted to make it look like a Shelby GT350...

First, completely stripped the body down to bare metal with a metal work finish, bondo free, preparation for painting. A "Wimbledon White", two coats, enamel was applied to the well prepared primer finish..."Le Man's" strips for the final finish.

Second, "289" engine replaced with 'built 347 Stroker(385lbs. torque, 375 Hp.), and backed by a "light weight Borg-Warner 5 Speed" ....carry in one hand!!!

Third, lightened the car, fiberglass hood and trunk lid, remove back seat, aluminium drive shaft, engine, radiator, sway bar, wheels and "Curry rear housing/posi 3:73"/9 inch"

Fourth, remove and replace "louvers' with quarter windows

Fifth, car weighs approximately 2710 empty, runs high 11's low 12's quarter mile...
