Mine was the same minus awd and cold weather. The guy I sold it to complained about the lack of options

Notoo far away and I dont think Id want to buy an engine swapped car without seeing it. But Im curious about the swap, which apparently is fairly straightforward but also cost 10k without the engine.

Back when I was in HS and the Mustang we got was 'brand new' to us - I used to give my dad a bad time about "Why didn't we get a 500KR? All we got was the 'GT'..." LOL

I was joking, but back in the late 70's - these cars were just plain CHEAP.
My dad paid $2,200 for the Mustang in 1979 The Shelby like this was ~$4,000 or so... Not much different in the grand scheme of things, but.... still 'double' is double. I figure the Mustang is worth (as a fully restored car) about $55k. The Shelby is (as shown by the auction above) north of $200k. LOL

Hindsight is wonderful. LOL
