Classic Car Overview

1965 Shelby GT-350 For Sale - Complete Restoration, Multiple National Awards LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 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 a large corporation, so Ford turned to Carroll Shelby. The SCCA said in order for Carrolls cars to be sanctioned, there needed to be 100 of them. The brand new 1965 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 raises peak power to 306hp. 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 9-inch 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. According to the Shelby American factory records, this chassis was received at the Shelby American Los Angeles CA. facility on May 12 th , 1965. Work started on the same day and it was finished on May 20 th , 1965. It was then shipped to Gene Hamon Ford in Texas City, TX and they were invoiced $3,944.25. It was then used by the dealership as a factory demonstrator. Being one of only 562 Shelby GT350’s built in 1965, this special Shelby was delivered new with the early fiberglass porthole hood, COBRA vented battery caps, rare trunk mounted battery, Cragar Shelby wheels, and Le Mans stripes. It is powered by the prerequisite Hi-Po 289/306hp engine backed by the aluminum case T-10 4-speed transmission. Countless hours were spent to complete the total cost is no object concourse rotisserie restoration to SAAC/ MCA concourse specifications. The result is an award-winning restoration with achievements and accolades that very few other cars have ever attained. The paint has been polished and is show quality; great lengths went into the paint work to replicate a job just as the factory would have. The interior is complete with correct dash mounted pod containing the 8,000 rpm tach and oil pressure gauges, factory racing lap belts, 15" wood rimmed steering wheel and factory radio delete plate.
