Some of the nicest classics we feature are those built by folks who invest a large amount of time and money into a project they simply love. And much to the surprise of casual onlookers, most gearhead's dream builds don't always involve Ridler finalists or a bizarre pile of one-off parts that serves as garage floor dcor. Instead, they're filled with impressive, well-done customs which wrap modern power, everyday livability and top-notch track manners in about five times the curb appeal of a factory-fresh sports car. This SEMA-featured Shelby was painstakingly crafted into a world class piece of automotive art during a professional, high dollar build. And, thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a supercharged Mast small block, it provides an athletic pro-touring driving experience that creates the perfect platform for serious track days. Looking for a hot collectible that makes exotic European sports cars look downright melancholy? This killer Daytona is your one-way ticket to pure exclusivity! BODYWORK/TRIM Factory Five Racing has long been applauded for their great fiberglass work, and this Type 65 is no exception. The car's virtually flawless profile, a true replica of the original Shelby Daytona, is a 1-piece, hand-laid Vinylester shell that was laminated to 3/16ths, rotor-trimmed and covered in a .015-inch gel coat. That gel, thoroughly massaged by the professionals at Competition Specialties of Walpole, Massachusetts, lays excellent groundwork for glowing Ferrari Red 2-stage. Since pretty much every Shelby worth its salt needs some kind of war paint, the car was graced with bold, Graphite racing stripes. And ultimately, this super slick coupe rolled out of Littlefield Customs in Charlestown, Rhode Island with a mission to turn heads and drop jaws at the 2014 SEMA Show. A clever descriptor for this wicked custom might be better than best. That's because, even though the car is an excellent example of what was arguably Carroll Shelby's best creation, its 6% larger footprint features a roster of better technology. That increased level of sophistication begins with a mesh grille that devours air between LED-trimmed, British-style headlights and modern fog lamps. Behind that maw, an aggressive scoop funnels air through the car's serious radiator while modern windshield wipers clear a DOT Safety Glass windscreen. Behind that glass, polished, bullet-style racing mirrors reflect tinted, sliding Lexan, which perfectly complements a tinted DOT Safety Glass hatch. Below those mirrors, rowdy side-pipes frame original-style brake ducts, chrome, vintage-style bonnet latches and a familiar, Monza-style fuel filler. And behind that filler, a radical angled rear-clip seats Lucas-style taillights beneath a functional deck spoiler. ENGINE What good is all that 'show' if you can't back it up with a little 'go'? Tilt this Shelby's sculpted cowl and you'll find the forerunner to virtually all the technology still featured in Chevrolet sports cars: GM's potent Generation IV small block. Officially known as the Mast Motorsports 416 Black Label S/C, that brutal mill utilizes a 6.8 liter LS3 block to twist impressive 9.5 to 1 compression into 820
