You just have to love it when someone buys a new Mustang and keeps it in the family for its entire existence. Such is the case with Steve Harrison and his 1966 Mustang fastback.

Bought new by his father-in-law in 1966, the Mustang served the family well, being used as a classroom for both his mother-in-law and his future wife to not only learn how to drive, but also when the time came to take their initial driver’s license tests. Over the years, the car suffered the normal wages of age, with dings, dents, rusty sheetmetal, and overall daily driver abuse, until Steve and his wife decided to get busy and bring the car back to life, in the process turning it into a Shelby G.T. 350H clone.

Modern convenience and safety desires had them deviate from the purist clone idea, however, and upgrade the drivetrain, suspension, and interior. Today, the car has a Ford Racing 302 with a few Summit-sourced speed parts, mostly all new sheetmetal, coil-over rear suspension, a rack & pinion steering setup up front, and a really nice tan leather interior. The finishing touch was mailing the glove box door to Carroll Shelby to get his iconic signature on it.

Freelancer Joe Greeves found the car at the Ancient City National Mustang Show in St. Augustine, Florida in April 2016, and got this video of Steve of talking about his All in the Family Fastback
