One of a kind 1966 Mustang Shelby Tribute built by Bill Carnes of M1Stang, based out of their factory in St. Augustine, Florida. Built with trademark approval from Ford Motor Company this resto-mod M1Stang was featured in a number of car magazines and draws attention where ever it goes. This may look like a 1966 Mustang convertible but don't let these classic looks fool you. Underneath this all metal Mustang body sits a 1994 Mazda Miata chassis and drivetrain capable of the performance you would expect out of a V8 car. The exterior is coated in Wimbelton White with Viper Blue Shelby stripes buried under 6 coats of clear providing for a glossy finish that will stand the test of time. The convertible soft top is a brand new and black in color which matches the black cloth Miata interior that is filled with modern technology. Comfort features such as air conditioning, a 6 disc CD changer with AM/Fm radio, power steering, a four speed automatic transmission, and power door locks with electronic release all help make this Mustang a different breed than the original. However it doesnt stop there. The M1Satng is also equipped with improved handling and safety equipment such as four-way independent suspension, four wheel power anti-lock disc brakes, performance driven rack and pinion steering, polished stainless steel roll bar, and newer styled performance wheels and tires. This Mustang is perfect for either highway or city driving and you can rest assured it wont leave you stranded.
Over $27,000 was spent building this unique car and it has been meticulously cared for and maintained since it was purchased from M1 Stang in 2007. Built from brand new steel body panels no Mustangs were "chopped-up" or destroyed to make this amazing kit car. The Miatas outside body panels are removed and the new steel panels are shortened and welded or bolted to the chassis. Rust free and displaying brilliant chrome bumpers this M1Stang was garage kept and female owned. The perfect car for stylish summer fun!
