Hello all, amazed that I have finally bought a Mustang and completely unplanned while driving around in my beat up 1978 Ford Ranchero. Great to be part of the community finally! 

Sorry for the lack of better photos but it was surrounded by cars and grass so no real opportunity until I get her out. Bought it because it was dirt cheap and only had rust in the door sills with the rest of the vehicle being solid and straight. It has;
351W
Auto
Black bucket seat leather/vinyl with cloth insert
Yellow paint with black GT-351 decals
LSD
Manual steering and breaks
Disc front drum rear
Speedo in kmph not mph
I have done as much research as I can on this and am feeling confident but not sure so am bringing my question to the masses.
Is this a rare Mexico de Shelby mustang or just another mustang? Thanks

Hello from Mississippi. That appears to be a genuine Mexico de Shelby. The Cougar style door panels and the 351 W engine are usually the first two things that catch my eye. There are others here that are more knowledgeable on these cars than I am and can provide a lot more info. From what I understand they were built as a result of Carroll Shelby’s partnership with Mexican businessman Eduardo Velasquez. I believe the GT351's were built through 1972. Always thought it was a little strange they were installing 351W's in these cars while the W engine was all but forgotten in the US after the 351 C came out in 1970. That's a really great find.
Glad to have another Aussie (even a Mexican one) and a rare car in our ranks. Welcome aboard.
Steve

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
