The updated GT350 of 1969 introduced a number of stylistic and mechanical changes; and, like any good car, a touch of drama. The GT350's new engine was a Windsor 351-cubic inch V-8, registering 290 brake horsepower. Cosmetic changes included a new grille, hood, side ducts to help cool the engine and rear brakes. Also, with an overall body length that grew by four inches. 1969 was a real transition year for the Shelby GT350, from its origins as a bare-bones sports car to a true muscle car with all the amenities the buying public demanded.
