LMC is very proud to offer for sale this very special 1965 Shelby GT350

The 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 was offered in a single exterior paint option - Wimbledon White with optional blue LeMans stripes in Guardsman Blue that ran down the center of the body and with a functional hood scoop, the fiberglass hood of the car made it something of an icon on the road. In 1965 Ford had been spurned by the SCCA, the sanctioning body for amateur sports car racing in this country. The severely independent SCCA seemingly did not appreciate being muscled by large corporations, so Ford turned to Carroll Shelby. The SCCA said in order for Carroll's cars to be sanctioned, there needed to be 100 of them.

The brand new GT350 was powered by a Ford 289-cubic inch V-8, but with some Kobra Kustom accessories bolted on. Shelby starts with the 271-hp “High-Performance” version of the 289 V-8, and adds a high-riser intake manifold, welded-tube headers and cast-aluminum valve-rocker covers which raise peak power to 306. Also, the pressed-steel stock oil sump is replaced with a large cast-aluminum sump, complete with cooling fins. It also featured a four-speed manual transmission and side-exhaust pipes fitted with two-inch Glasspak mufflers. A 9inch differential fitted with 3.89 rear gears transferred the grunt of the 289 to the pavement. Most notably, the 1965 GT350 had no rear seat because SCCA B Production requirements only permitted two-seater cars. In its place was a fiberglass floor, with a spare tire mounted beneath the rear glass.

The car offered for sale here was originally delivered to Fuller Ford, of Cincinnati, Ohio as a public relations car. It has been Rotisserie restored by Legendary Motorcar to a concourse style restoration and was even featured on the Legendary Motorcar television show.  The overall look and unmistakable sound of the car are the factory side exiting exhaust just in front of the correct Blue Dot tires mounted on the optional Cragar wheels. The interior is correct with dash mounted pod with 8,000 rpm tach and oil pressure, factory racing lap belts, 15" wood rimmed steering wheel and factory radio delete plate. It was also equipped with the very rare factory trunk mounted battery option. On a hoist and you will discover the undercarriage to be in excellent condition with floors finished in the correct factory style red oxide primer with body color overspray and blacked out pinch welds. Documentation for this Shelby include: Dealer Invoice, Ownership History, Multiple Bills of Sale, and Listing in SAAC registry on pg. 174 and pg. 66.

An example of American muscle car history, the 1965 Shelby GT350's were the first of their breed, purpose built, very rare and unique. With these characteristics combined with full documentation and beautiful restoration, this GT350 is a collector’s dream.
