LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1966 Shelby GT350

  The street model 1965 Shelby GT 350s sold briskly, but since they were essentially thinly disguised race cars and early customers criticized the harshness of the ride, noise and rattles. Subsequently, the 1966 GT 350 models were made more user-friendly with the introduction of plentiful mechanical revisions that softened the edges and made the cars more amenable. Exterior changes included Plexiglas quarter-windows and the scoops and ducting necessary to help cool the rear brakes. Mechanically, the engine remained the same, a Shelby-prepared 306-hp solid lifter 289 cubic inch Ford V-8 with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and a considerably quieter exhaust system. The Borg-Warner T-10 four-speed manual transmission remained standard, but an automatic was optional. The suspension was much closer to stock, greatly improving the ride and comfort. All told, 1,365 cars were built in addition to 999 GT-350H Hertz “Rent-A-Racers” and 13 specials and prototypes.

  This beautiful 1966 Shelby GT350 is ultra-rare, being one of approximately only 75 painted in Candy Apple Red with Lemans stripe delete. As per the Shelby American Automobile Club’s Shelby Registry, it shipped from Shelby American Los Angeles to El Paso Ford Sales Inc. on June 1st, 1966. Like all 1966 GT350s, it was delivered to Shelby American  from Ford’s San Jose assembly plate as a “K-code” Mustang fastback, then upgraded with a Cobra aluminum intake with Holley carburetor, Tri-Y headers, Koni shock absorbers, rear traction bars, side scoops, dash-mounted tachometer, competition seat belts, and wood steering wheel.

  This GT350 received a true no expense spared rotisserie nut and bolt concours restoration with only test miles since completion. Under the hood you will find a numbers-matching 289/306 Hi-Performance V-8 backed by the Borg-Warner T-10 four-speed manual transmission. The body was block sanded and gaps fitted in order to achieve an extremely high level better than it had ever left the factory. The paint has also been wet sanded and polished in order to achieve a concours quality paint finish. Underneath is finished as it left the factory with red oxide primer floor pans with body color overspray, correct paint daubs and inspection markings.

  Included in the sale of this concours 1966 Shelby GT350 are copies of the following: dealer shipping report, dealer invoice, order invoice and SAAC serial number verification.  If you are looking for a concours quality example, this Shelby GT350 will be the perfect addition to your collection!
