Back in 2004, our good friend Steve Turner published an article about LMR’s very own 1984 Mustang GT350 build! The owner of LMR, Shannon Guderian spotted a GT350 wasting away in a wrecking yard. It already had a lot of good components such as the front bumper and original wheels so saving it was a must! It being an anniversary car it was definitely worth the effort of rebuilding so the crew at LMR got started!

After fixing the engine and performing some simple restorations, it was then sent off for paint and came back looking pristine! Eventually, a 03’ Cobra crate engine was put into this along with numerous other upgrades during a 6-month rebuild process. Below is the list of upgrades we made to the GT350:
