Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a very sharp 1971 BSA Thunderbolt. Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) produced motorcycles from their meager beginnings in 1910 all the way until 1972. This particular Thunderbolt is one of the last. The Thunderbolt utilizes an air cooled 654cc parallel twin cylinder engine with a single carburetor. This set up is good for 46 horsepower and will propel the bike over 100 MPH. It has a 4 speed manual transmission with the British shifter/brake pedal placement (brake left, shifter right). It uses large drum brakes both front and rear and chain drive. The overall riding experience is a delight and the 650 twin makes a sweet sound. The particular Thunderbolt has been treated to a loving frame off restoration less than 100 miles ago. Everything has been refinished or replaced and the result is simply, beautiful. It has been kept mostly original save for an upgraded Mikuni carburetor, an upgraded ignition system, and an optional tank from a Triumph. The original tank has been beautifully refinished as well for those that prefer an original look. The bike starts easily with the upgraded ignition and is ready to ride. Stand out from the crowd at the next bike night with this beauty. Don't miss out on this unique Thunderbolt. You can see this 1971 BSA Thunderbolt in greater detail in our St. Louis showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 618-271-3000 or stl@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.

1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350


Engine: 289 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 16,500 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this ultra rare and desirable 1966 Shelby GT350 Fastback Mustang. Documentation and known history are two important attributes for collector cars. This 1966 Shelby GT350, SFM6S2185, possesses plenty of both. As noted in the Shelby American Automobile Club’s “Shelby Registry 1965-67,” the GT350 was shipped from the Shelby American assembly facility in Los Angeles to Ford Motor Company in June 1966, then delivered to Courtesy Motors in Littleton, Colorado. In the 1970s, the Shelby was owned by a southern California detective who sometimes used this beauty as an undercover vehicle. Since 1979, it has been in the hands of collectors to ensure it was cared for through the years. During the 1980s, it participated in west coast shows, including SAAC-6 and the Palo Alto Concours D’Elegance. From 1987 to 2013, the GT350 was owned by a private collector; a 1988 restoration resulted in numerous Best of Show awards, perfect scores from both SAAC and the Mustang Club of America, and features in several magazines. “Super Ford” magazine named it “the best Shelby of the year” for 1989. The Guardsman Blue GT350 retains much of its original equipment, including the factory-installed 4-speed transmission and matching-numbers 289 Hi-Po V-8 that was modified to Shelby specs for 306 horsepower. Like all 1966 GT350s, the car was delivered to Shelby American as a K-code Mustang fastback, then upgraded with a Cobra aluminum intake with Holley carb, Tri-Y headers, Koni shock absorbers, rear traction bars, 15-inch wheels, dash-mounted tachometer, competition seatbelts and wood steering wheel. Externally, the Shelby models differed from regular Mustangs with a fiberglass hood with scoop, plexiglas rear quarter windows and side scoops. Only 2,378 were built. In 2014, this car underwent a fresh restoration by Orlando Mustang, which resulted in Best in Class awards at the 2104 Keels and Wheels Concours D’Elegance and the 2015 Valero Show. It was featured in the July 2015 “Mustang Times” and displayed at the Bush Library from August to October 2016.

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500


Engine: 5.4L V8 F DOHC 32V
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual
Mileage: 4,752 ( actual )

Professionally crafted by Galpin Auto Sports aka GAS in Van Nuys, California, this handmade GT-500 is a sight to behold! With over 8 months alone in the body and paint, the body was sculpted out of metal and was coated in a custom pepper gray metallic paint that looks sinister from all angles. Shaved door handles keep the look sleek and freshly powder coated Forgiato 3-piece GTR wheels finish off the look well. A clear bra was placed on multiple areas of the car as well to protect it from stone chips. This car makes an amazing show car but performs just as well on the track! Awaiting to come alive under the hood sits a 5.4L V8 that came in the GT-500’s originally, however this one has been equipped with a 2.3L VMP supercharger producing a dyno-proven 700+ horsepower to the rear wheels! Bigger injectors, oversized aluminum Shelby intercooler, Ford Racing single blade throttle body connected to a cold air intake, and a Diablo tune insures max efficiency and power. Keeping this Shelby hooked to the pavement is a Ford Racing performance lowering suspension and a Watts 4-link in the rear. This paired with the 11.5” wide wheels up front and 14” wide wheels on the rear, this Mustang handles like it is on rails! With so much power and excellent cornering abilities, the only thing left are the brakes. Taking care of this is a set of Wilwood disc brakes both front and rear with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-pistons in the rear grabbing down on a set of cross drilled and slotted rotors. There are few cars out there that are as well-equipped as this GT-500 and would make an excellent car for a true driving enthusiast. Whether their plan is to show it off or rip it around the track this wild Mustang will not disappoint. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom. You can view this 2012 Ford Mustang GT-500 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.
