Carol Shelby took the 1965 Mustang Fastback and made some mild exterior changes in order to create the Shelby GT-350. The fiberglass hood with functional hood scoop and clean looking grill first caught the eye and all Mustang emblems were removed. All 1965 Shelby GT-350's were Wimbledon White with a blue GT-350 side stripe located below the door. The Le Mans stripes running over the top and down the center of the body was an optional feature and Shelby extensively modified the stock Mustang suspension. In 1965 total production ran to only 562 units. The 1966 Shelby GT 350 was offered in white, black, red, green and blue. The same 289 V8 engine returned in 1966 and replacement plexiglass quarter windows were fitted along with side air scoops that cooled the brakes. This gave the 1966 GT-350 a racier look but with the rear seat added it was able to carry 4 people. A total of 2,380 GT-350's were produced in 1966.

This 1966 Shelby GT-350 Recreation is finished in Ford Candy Apple red with Wimbledon White Le Mans stripes and is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition. The car is fitted with numerous modifications including a custom built 5.0 litre engine by Lone Star Performance which is fully ported and polished and fitted with motorsport roller cam and lifters and hardened steel pushrods. The engine breathes through Edelbrock 600CFM carbs and a 2.5 inch aluminized Dual Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust. Power is fed through a Luke Gold series clutch and a Ford 4 speed Top Loader with Hurst Competition Plus Shifter. Handling is taken care of with a Shelby underride traction bars, KYB Gas Shocks and a lowered upper A frame - 1 inch to match Carroll Shelbys' Specifications.

Inside the cockpit the interior is standard bar a Shelby woodgrain steering wheel and an 8000 RPM Shelby Tachometer. The car is supplied with a V5 document and will provide exhilarating muscle car performance.
