Up For Auction / 5S250 - on BAT
May 26, 2024, 07:39:40 PM
Link:  https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1965-shelby-mustang-gt350-10/



Description:
This 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 is one of 504 street-production examples built for the model year during the first seven months of construction of Shelby American's Mustang variant. Chassis SFM5S250 was completed on May 17, 1965, before being shipped on June 7 to Riverside, California, dealer Warren-Anderson Ford. The car was sold by Warren-Anderson to its first owner in January 1967 and was later purchased by a California owner who modified it in the style of a GT350R in the 1990s before subsequent owners campaigned it in vintage racing between 1995 and 2005. Finished in Wimbledon White with black stripes, the car is powered by a replacement 289ci V8 that was built by Tony Oddo and is paired with a Tex Racing four-speed manual transmission with an aluminum main case. Additional features include front disc brakes, Koni shock absorbers, 15" alloy wheels, an oil cooler, a fuel cell, an electric fuel pump, 1966-style brake scoops, bolstered bucket seats, four-point harnesses, and a roll cage. Purchased by its current owner in 2022, this R-style GT350 is now offered in California by the seller on behalf of the owner with its removed 289ci HiPo V8, a log book, engine specification sheets, a copy of its SAAC Registry entry, and an Arizona title.

Development of the GT350 model began in summer 1964 after Ford enlisted Carroll Shelby to create a variant of the Mustang to homologate for competition in the SCCA's B Production class. Incomplete K-code Mustang fastbacks were sent from Ford's San Jose, California, plant to Shelby's Venice facility for transformation into GT350 specification before Shelby began shifting production to its facilities near Los Angeles International Airport in early 1965. This example was modified in the 1990s to replicate the GT350 competition model, or R model, that was developed by Shelby as a turn-key racing variant of the GT350 and accounted for three straight SCCA B Production national titles.

The body is said to have been repainted during the 1990s project and is finished in Wimbledon White with black Le Mans stripes and side stripes. R-style details include a fiberglass front apron with integrated brake-cooling intakes, a painted rear bumper, a top-vented plexiglass rear window, and pull-up side windows. Additional features include a steel-framed fiberglass hood with a functional scoop and quick-release pins, 1966-style fender scoops, louvered sail panels, dual side mirrors, a fuel-cap blanking plate, an exterior electrical cutoff switch, and number 54 graphics.

Five-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in 6.00-15 Goodyear Blue Streak tires. Braking is handled without assistance by ventilated discs with cooling ducts up front and drums at the rear, and front-rear bias is adjustable via a knob in the cockpit.

The cockpit houses a pair of bolstered bucket seats trimmed in black upholstery and equipped with Simpson four-point harnesses. Additional features include floors devoid of carpeting, a black dash, a Hurst shifter, a roll cage, and a fire-suppression system.

The quick-release steering wheel features a padded hub and sits ahead of Stewart-Warner instrumentation including a central 8k-rpm tachometer flanked by gauges monitoring fuel pressure, coolant temperature, oil temperature, and oil pressure. The car is not equipped with an odometer, and total mileage is unknown.

The 289ci V8 was built by TOE Performance Products in California and features a four-barrel carburetor, a high-rise intake manifold, tall valve covers, and MSD electronic ignition. Engine specification sheets dated between 1999 and 2000 can be viewed in the photo gallery below. Additional equipment includes four-into-one exhaust headers, an oil cooler, an aluminum radiator, an electric fuel pump, and a Fuel Safe fuel cell.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tex Racing four-speed manual transmission with an aluminum main case. Suspension incorporates adjustable Koni shock absorbers all around along with overrider rear traction bars.

The car's removed 289ci HiPo V8 is included in the sale, and various markings on the engine can be seen in the gallery. A logbook listing events between 1995 and 2005 can also be seen below, as can the car's SAAC Registry entry. The latter notes that in 1988 the car was observed with a 1966-style fuel cap, steering wheel, fender scoops, and quarter windows, and it mentions that the car is one of four that may have been fitted with such equipment by Warren-Anderson Ford before the original sale.

The Arizona title carries a "not actual" mileage note.

Description:

This 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 was first used as a company car by Ford executive and Shelby American liaison Ray Geddes before being sold with a demonstrator discount to Nagle Ford of Rochester, New York, in May 1966. It was acquired by the seller in April 1991 from Robert Oswalt of Oswalt's Mustangs & Parts, and a refurbishment performed by Mr. Oswalt at his shop in Leesville, South Carolina, was completed in June of that year. The car is powered by a replacement 289ci HiPo V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission and has been refinished in white with blue stripes over black vinyl upholstery. Features include Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes, 10-spoke 14″ alloy wheels, Koni shocks, a dash-mounted tachometer, a push-button AM radio, and a fold-down rear seat. This GT350 is now offered with owner's manuals, copies of Shelby American documents, a Shelby American Automobile Club serial number verification letter, a Carroll Shelby Motors license plate frame, and a clean South Carolina title in the seller's name.

The car was refinished in Wimbledon White with blue Le Mans and side stripes during the aforementioned refurbishment. Features unique to Shelby Mustangs included a steel-framed fiberglass hood with a scoop and torsion-type retaining pins as well as a bullet-style side-view mirror, fixed plexiglass rear quarter windows, and fiberglass brake-cooling scoops on the rear fenders.

Optional 10-spoke alloy wheels are finished in silver and mounted with E70-14″ Goodyear Custom Wide Tread tires. GT350s were factory-equipped with Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes as well as larger rear drums than standard Mustangs.

The cabin is trimmed in black vinyl and features a Sport Deck rear seat, GT350-branded rear floormats, latch-and-link front seatbelts, a heater/defroster, and a push-button AM radio.

The three-spoke woodgrain steering wheel fronts a 140-mph speedometer flanked by fuel-level, oil-pressure, charging, and coolant-temperature gauges, and a Cobra-branded 9k-rpm tachometer is center-mounted atop the dash. The five-digit odometer shows 44k miles, approximately 600 of which were driven by the seller.

The replacement 289ci HiPo Windsor V8 was reportedly sourced from a 1967 GT350 and installed under Mr. Oswalt's ownership. Features include a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a high-rise aluminum intake manifold, a chrome open-element air cleaner, and finned aluminum valve covers with open-letter Cobra logos. Long-tube headers flow into a replacement dual exhaust system with glasspack mufflers and side exits.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

A copy of the Shelby American invoice indicates that the car was sold to Nagle Ford of Rochester, New York, in May 1966 and lists an optional rear seat as well as a demonstrator discount of $430.44 for a total price of $3,156.

Up For Auction / 6S1884 - Bring A Trailer
March 18, 2024, 03:08:43 PM
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-ford-mustang-624/



Description:
This 1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350H was purchased by the owner in 1992. It is finished in black and gold over black vinyl and powered by a 289ci V8. Equipment includes a C4 three-speed automatic transmission, a four-barrel carburetor, power-assisted steering and front disc brakes, Magnum wheels, a dual exhaust system, hood and bodyside scoops, a dash-mounted tachometer, and latch-and-link front harnesses. This GT350H is now offered on dealer consignment with an SAAC serial number verification document and a Connecticut registration.

Approximately 1,000 GT350Hs were produced as part of a partnership between Ford and the Hertz car rental company. This example has been repainted in black with gold stripes and features a hood scoop, driving lamps, plexiglass rear quarter windows, fiberglass brake-cooling scoops on the quarter panels, and a chrome bullet-style side mirror.

Chrome-plated 14″ Magnum wheels wear 215/70 Bridgestone Potenza HP41 tires, while a full-size spare is mounted in the trunk. Shelby chassis modifications included revised front suspension geometry, quick-steer idler and pitman arms, Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes, and a larger front sway bar, rear brake drums, and traction bars.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a folding rear bench trimmed in black vinyl along with color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Features include a heater, front latch-and-link harnesses, and rear lap belts.

The optional three-spoke steering wheel wears a Cobra GT350 badge and frames a 140-mph speedometer flanked by gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and amps. A Shelby-branded 8k-rpm tachometer is mounted on top of the dashboard, and Steward Warner auxiliary gauges are mounted below it. The five-digit odometer shows 58k miles.

The 289ci HiPo V8 is fed via a Holley four-barrel carburetor mounted on a Cobra-branded high-rise aluminum intake manifold and was factory rated at 306 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque in Shelby trim.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a C4 three-speed automatic transmission.

The car's Shelby American serial number is SFM6S1884.

Shelby American Automobile Club correspondence indicates that serial number SFM6S1884 aligns with a Shelby GT350 serial number recorded in their files.

The car is being sold on its Connecticut registration because Connecticut does not issue titles for cars older than 20 years.

Description

This 1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350H is said to have been delivered new to Schwister Ford of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and underwent a cosmetic refurbishment before being purchased by the seller in 2017. The car is finished in black with gold stripes over black vinyl upholstery, and power comes from a replacement 289ci HiPo V8 that was rebuilt and over-bored by Ed Pink Racing Engines in 2020. Equipment includes a C4 three-speed automatic transmission, a four-barrel carburetor, power-assisted steering and front disc brakes, 17″ Shelby/American Racing wheels, a dual exhaust system, hood and bodyside scoops, driving lamps, a dash-mounted tachometer, a retro-style satellite radio, and latch-and-link front harnesses. This GT350H is offered with service records and a clean California title in the seller's name.

Approximately 1,000 GT350H examples were produced as part of a partnership between Ford and the Hertz car rental company. This example is finished in black with gold stripes and features a hood scoop, driving lamps, plexiglass rear quarter windows, fiberglass brake-cooling scoops on the quarter panels, and a chrome bullet-style side mirror.

The 17″ Halibrand-style Shelby/American Racing wheels feature faux three-eared knock-off hubs and are mounted with 225/45 Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires. A chrome-finished 14″ Magnum 500-style wheel with a Goodyear Blue Streak bias-ply tire is stowed in the trunk. The car is equipped with power-assisted steering, and stopping power is provided by power-assisted front discs and rear drums. Replacement rear wheel cylinders and axle seals were installed by Galpin Auto Sports of Van Nuys, California, in 2020.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a folding rear bench trimmed in black vinyl along with color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Features include a heater, front latch-and-link harnesses, black rubber Mustang-branded front floor mats, and rear lap belts. A replacement black headliner and a Ford-branded satellite radio with an auxiliary input were installed in 2020. A competition brake warning sticker is affixed to the center of the dash.

The three-spoke steering wheel wears a Cobra GT350 badge and frames a 140-mph speedometer flanked by gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and battery voltage. A Shelby-branded tach is mounted atop the dash. A replacement speedometer cable was installed in 2020. The five-digit odometer shows 6,300 miles, approximately 1,500 of which were added under the seller's ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The replacement 289ci HiPo V8 was rebuilt and bored .030″ over in 2020. Equipment includes finned valve covers and a four-barrel carburetor mounted on a high-rise aluminum intake manifold as well as an export brace and a crossbar. Corrosion is visible on the chrome air cleaner.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a C4 three-speed automatic transmission.

Description:
This 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 was delivered to new Herb Tousley Ford of White Bear, Minnesota, on November 30, 1965, and underwent a refurbishment that was completed in 2012 by Cobra Automotive of Wallingford, Connecticut. The car is finished in Wimbledon White with blue Le Mans stripes over black vinyl upholstery, and power comes from a 289ci HiPo V8 paired with a replacement Toploader four-speed manual transmission. Features include Koni shocks, front disc brakes, 15" Shelby/Cragar alloy wheels, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a push-button AM radio, and a fold-down rear seat. This GT350 was acquired by the selling dealer in 2023 and is now offered in Yalesville, Connecticut, with a removed Borg Warner aluminum case T10M-1 four-speed manual transmission, copies of factory order sheets, SAAC correspondence, and a clean Texas title.

The car is said to have been refinished in Wimbledon White with blue Le Mans stripes during the aforementioned refurbishment. Features unique to Shelby Mustangs include a steel-framed fiberglass hood with a scoop and hood pins, a bullet-style side-view mirror, fixed plexiglass rear quarter windows, and fiberglass brake-cooling scoops on the rear fenders.

Polished 15″ Shelby/Cragar alloy wheels were optional on early 1966 Shelby Mustangs, and they are mounted with Goodyear "blue dot" bias-ply tires that were reportedly installed during the refurbishment. A matching spare wheel is stowed in the trunk. The car is said to feature a 1965-style GT350 suspension setup with Koni shocks and override traction bars as well as upper control arms with lower mounting points compared to later 1966 models. Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes were standard equipment on GT350s, as were larger rear drum brakes than those used on standard Mustang models.

The cabin features bucket seats and an optional fold-down rear seat trimmed in black knit vinyl along with a color-coordinated dash pad, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes a push-button AM radio, a heater, and black lap belts for all four occupants. A Carroll Shelby signature is present on the glovebox door.

The three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel was optional on 1966 Shelbys, and it was installed during the refurbishment. It frames a central 140-mph speedometer as well as gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, alternator charge, and coolant temperature. A Cobra-branded 9k-rpm tachometer is mounted to the top of the dashboard. The five-digit odometer shows 19k miles, approximately 100 of which were added following the 2012 refurbishment. Total mileage is unknown.

The 289ci HiPo V8 is said to have been rebuilt during the refurbishment and features a Holley four-barrel carburetor on a high-rise aluminum intake manifold as well as finned valve covers with open-letter Cobra logos. Output was factory rated at 306 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque. SAAC documentation regarding the engine stampings is provided in the gallery.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a replacement Toploader four-speed manual transmission that was installed during the refurbishment.

A copy of the Shelby American order sheet indicates that the car was sold to Herb Tousley Ford and lists an optional rear seat as well as a total price of $3,667.

A Borg Warner aluminum case T10M-1 four-speed manual transmission that is said to have been removed from the car during the refurbishment is included in the sale, and it shows an August 27, 1965, casting date.

Description:
This 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 is one of 504 street production examples built for the model year, and was first invoiced to Paradise Ford Sales in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 28, 1965. Finished in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes over black vinyl upholstery, the car is powered by a 289ci HiPo V8 mated to a replacement Ford Toploader four-speed manual transmission. Additional equipment includes Cragar 15″ cast alloy wheels, a four-barrel Holley carburetor on a high-rise intake manifold, a Detroit locking differential, Kelsey-Hayes ventilated front disc brakes, a fiberglass hood, an R-style front valance, Koni shock absorbers, override traction bars, dual side-exit exhaust outlets, a trunk-mounted battery, a Hurst shifter, and a dash-mounted tachometer. Chassis SFM5S305 is said to have been traded to a dealer in Tuscon, Arizona, before being purchased by the second owner in California where it was fitted with a fold-down rear bench seat. It was purchased in 2015 by the current owner from a four-decades owner in Lake Havasu, Arizona. Service over the past year consisted of overhauling the engine and transmission along with replacing the shifter assembly. This GT350 is now offered on dealer consignment with the original sales invoice, Shelby American literature, service records, vintage photographs, and a clean Arizona title in the name of the owner's LLC.

Development of the GT350 model began in summer 1964 after Ford enlisted Carroll Shelby to create a variant of the Mustang to homologate for competition in the SCCA's B Production class. Incomplete K-code Mustang fastbacks were sent from Ford's San Jose, California, plant to Shelby's Venice facility for transformation into GT350 specification under the lead of project engineer Chuck Cantwell. In early 1965, Shelby began shifting production from Venice to its facilities near Los Angeles International Airport.

All 1965 GT350s were finished in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue rocker-panel stripes, and this example is said to have been stripped to bare metal and refinished with blue Le Mans stripes by Rico Duran of Duran Quality Painting in Baldwin Park, California, and fitted with an aftermarket R-style front valance in 1990. Features include a steel-framed fiberglass hood with a functional scoop and quick-release pins, a mesh grille with an offset running-horse logo, sail-panel louvers, and a bullet-style driver-side mirror. A replacement passenger window was installed in 2022, and photos of body panel and hinge date codes are provided in the gallery below.

Optional Cragar 15″ cast alloy wheels are wrapped with 225/65 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, while a matching spare is secured in the trunk. The suspension is equipped with Koni adjustable shock absorbers, lowered front control arms, a 1" front sway bar,  override traction bars, and rear limiting cables. Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes incorporate ventilated rotors, while 2.5"-wide drums handle braking at the rear.

The cabin features low-back bucket seats trimmed in black vinyl along with a matching fold-down rear bench seat was installed under previous ownership. Aircraft-style lap belts are equipped for front occupants, and additional appointments include a Hurst shifter, a glove box, sun visors, a fire extinguisher, and pony-branded rubber floor mats.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel frames instrumentation that includes a horizontal-sweep 120-mph speedometer flanked by gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. Shelby-built mustangs were also equipped with an oil-pressure gauge and a tachometer mounted in a central pod. The five-digit odometer shows 13k miles, and the speedometer gears were previously replaced. Total chassis mileage is unknown.

The car is said to be equipped with the original 289ci Windsor V8 that was reportedly overhauled under previous ownership in 1980 and was rebuilt once more in June 2022 by Heath Elmer Restorations. Work consisted of boring and decking the block, polishing the crankshaft, and replacing the pistons, rings, pins, camshaft, lifters, springs, bearings, freeze plugs, oil pump, and timing chain. Further work consisted of replacing the starter, thermostat, and fuel tank along with overhauling the radiator. It is topped with a four-barrel Holley 715-cfm carburetor and a cast-aluminum high-rise intake manifold to produce a factory-rated 306 horsepower in street versions of the GT350. Additional GT350-specific features include a finned aluminum "T" oil pan with hinged baffles, open-letter valve covers, and tri-Y exhaust headers leading to replacement exit pipes ahead of each rear wheel. Component date stampings are provided in the gallery below.

The replacement Ford Toploader four-speed manual transmission incorporates a Hurst shifter, close-ratio gears, and it sends power to the rear wheels via a replacement 3.89:1 Detroit locking differential. Records indicate that the transmission was overhauled in 2022 and fitted with a replacement billet shift fork, pilot bushing, and speedometer drive gear. The shifter assembly was replaced in May 2023. Additional photos of the underside are provided in the gallery.

The invoice to Paradise Ford Sales lists optional special alloy wheels at an additional cost of $267 as well as a total price of $4,856.75.

A collection of vintage photographs and literature are also viewable in the gallery below.
