After many years of restoring 1965/6 K code Fastbacks I finally made the leap to Shelby ownership! As sad as I was to sell my 1965 K code Fastback, I was thrilled to locate and purchase a Lime Gold on Black 1968 GT350 that has been off the road since the late 80's. Its an early four speed, #220 to be exact. I have forwarded all of the info that I have about the car to the 1968 registrar as well. Looking forward to the experience of restoring my dream car over the coming months, as well as making some friends here.  

Welcome and Congrats!!!!  Chug a Lug   I can sense your enthusiasm from here.  Wink  Thanks for sharing the pictures and keep them coming.

You've come to the right place. The knowledge and willingness to help by folks here is second to none.

Yesterday I spent most of the morning getting the car through US and then Canadian Customs which went remarkably well I must say. Other than the winch on my friends flatdeck packing it in, making the loading part a bit of an adventure we got her home safe and sound. Many thanks to Rex Kelland of Modesto CA for being completely honest about the car and being helpful thoughout the whole process!

Tearing it down today, happy to find the original rear end in it, 7H29 date code. Also please to find that the car has all of its Ford glass in it still, even the windshield.

Excellent analogy, its exactly like being a kid on Christmas morning. A great, big 250 lb kid. Another happy discovery today was open letter Buddy Bar valve covers hiding under a thick coat of wrinkle paint. Wrong for my car, but valuable just the same. Looks like the car is going to be featured in the Vancouver Sun Newspaper as a long, lost car story. The gentleman from the paper was over this afternoon to take some pictures of the car for the article.
