Mechanic Recommendation
« on: May 07, 2020, 03:49:26 PM »
Hello,

I am the new owner of a 67 GT500 (2859) and would love to get recommendations for truly talented, expert Shelby mechanics in the area (Willow Glen/Campbell/Los Gatos preferred).

Thank you!

Got someone a bit further out that has plenty of experience but not sure if you want to go that far.  Not sure what you're looking at fixing/changing on #2859 - did look at the car around the first of the year.  PM if you want that name - if too far out that's not a problem

Good luck with the car and enjoy

We do have a very skilled vintage Mustang/Ford mechanic in Santa Clara. Mitch at Mustang Fever (408-748-1337) at 611 Reed Street is one the best mechanics I have ever worked with. He has been helping me maintain my 1968 Cougar and 1968 GT350 for about the last 12 years. He is not a Shelby specialist and doesn’t profess to be, so I make sure to supply any Shelby specific parts that are needed. He is amazing when it comes to trouble shooting issues. He has performed suspension, clutch, transmission, brake and electrical work for me. He is capable of doing pretty much anything but paint/ body. I know he works on anything from 6 cyl Mustangs to Boss 429. I have always been happy with his work and his pricing is fair. He is honest and will be straight with you.

Good luck,

Jim

Kevin Stittner, Precision Machine, Lodi. Long time Nor-Cal member and great Shelby Restoration shop. Not a bad driver either as he pushes his Shelby’s on the track!

In So Cal, none better than Steve Beck at Checkpoint Automotive.

I also agree about Mustang Fever however Mitch mostly specializes in restromod cars. I have a good friend Brad Miller that knows every nut a bolt of your Shelby. He has owned 67 GT500 # 897 for over 40 years. If you would live his number send me a pm.
