The Mustang was designed to be a sleek and powerful car that would provide the kind of horsepower that the American people were demanding. So, it was built based on the Shelby GT350 (which was a much faster car and did have a better reputation than the Mustang), and the Mustang took some cues from the Shelby GT350.
What are the similarities between the Ford Mustang and the Shelby GT350?
The Mustang is a little bit slower and a lot lighter than the Shelby but this did not hamper the vehicle’s performance. It used a much smaller engine, had a slightly larger space behind the cockpit compared to the GT350 and the overall body was a little smaller, but it was also the shortest.
Where did the Shelby go to make changes to the chassis so you could make the Mustang so much better?
The Shelby GT350 was essentially a smaller ’65 Ford GT with a higher number of seats and all the comfort components. Ford decided that it was necessary to increase the weight and power of the Ford to make the Mustang as fast as it was perceived to be. So, it started by removing the seat and replacing it with a full roll seat (a lot more expensive to do than just replacing the engine with stock, which is easy to make). The big change that they eventually made to it was that they eliminated the rear seats and moved the steering wheel forward and out of the center window, resulting in a sleeker look.
What was the biggest difference between the Mustang and the Shelby over just styling?
The first, and perhaps largest thing, was the lack of rear doors in the Shelby and the fact that it was a larger vehicle.
The second major difference was the different engine choices. Ford decided that they were not going to continue with the naturally aspirated V8 that the GT350 had and replaced it with a 2.5L Turbo 4 cylinder that was rated at 400 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. They also made some changes to the exterior of the car to make the rear doors, hoods, quarter panels and the roof accessible on the GT350. Ford tried a lot of different things to try to make it more like the Shelby but they couldn’t make it look more like the Mustang.
How was all the work on the Ford Mustang done?
There were several things that went into making the Mustang fast, as you have no chance of putting your body on a frame for racing anyhow. One was changing over the stock engine and transmission
