Stewart Norris has the best of both worlds, a new Shelby Mustang, limited to only five RHD versions in Europe and a recently restored 1966 GT. The car photography today was for the Mustang Owners Club magazine and also for the owner as the car has just left the workshop...
Work has just been completed by Fourways engineering in Borough Green, Kent on upgrading the car, this took place over a ten months period. The car had a new Ford 306 V8 in 2010 and has only done 1700miles from new. It has done the circuits as a show car in the USA where it won many best in show awards, I think this might continue in the UK as it is a real head turner.
Stewart bought the car from Texas in April 2018, even though it was a nut and bolt restoration back in 2010, it was all the old running gear with an auto C4 transmission. The team at Fourways Engineering have completely restomodded this car with the main details below, it now drives perfectly like a modern car and has 400BHP and ready for car shows in the UK and Europe.   
The list of the modifications include EFI Fuel injection and Jenvey’s to each cylinder, plus the addition of a new radiator and high speed cooling fan, total control rack and pinion power steering and chrome steering column. The GT also has total controllable fully adjustable shocks all round and a limited slip differential, which has transformed the overall handling of the car giving it a modern feel but old school looks.

To bring to up to date inside as well the car has bluetooth entertainment and mobile connectivity and upgraded LEDc lights front and rear. Just to complete the cars drivability and handling it has Wilwood brakes all round and a new vacuum pump.

The car visually is stunning and a real head turner, coincidentally I photographed Stewrt’s Shelby Super Snake S550 earlier in the year before he purchased it at Bill Shepherd Mustangs for an article in Fast Ford magazine. For me the classic merges the best of both worlds but we did capture the new Stand in the background for a few shots.
