1968 GT350 #0220
« on: December 08, 2020, 10:06:07 AM »
Hi, new to the Forum, looking at this car, can anyone tell me what they know of the car. Story is the car sat for a long time and the first owner had blown the engine within the first year, according to him the block was replaced under warranty.
My first Shelby,  arrived Jan 2021 - 68 -0220
