For Sale at Auction: 1966 Shelby GT350 in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Numbered SFM6S1765, this 1966 Shelby GT350 is one of just 1,356 street cars produced and one of as few as 305 original Ivy Green examples known to the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC). Following assembly, it was placed at the Ford Motor Company storage facility at Wixom, MI, on May 26, 1966, and eventually shipped to Courtesy Motors, Inc. of Littleton, CO, which was invoiced at just $2,917, with equipment including Shelby 10-spoke aluminum wheels, a rear seat and Le Mans stripes. Following having two Colorado-based owners, the Shelby was with two personal California owners before Grand Prix Classics of La Jolla purchased it in the early 1990s. In October 1993, Speed TV co-founder Roger Williams acquired the GT350 and displayed it at the Speedvision paddock during the 2000 Monaco Historics. In 2003, Williams had the GT350 restored, including a repaint in its factory-specified Ivy Green, rebuilding and reinstallation of the original 289/306hp V8 engine and BorgWarner T-10 4-speed manual transmission, and Shelby 10-spoke aluminum wheels as new. In January 2004, the GT350 had a new owner, passing in 2007 to exotic-car dealer and vintage racer David Bingham of Bellevue, WA, who fully sorted the car before selling it to noted collector Ron Pratte in 2009, followed by the current owner/collector in 2015. Retaining the matching-numbers 289/306hp V8 and T10 4-speed, the GT350 features a dash-mounted Shelby tachometer, wood-rimmed steering wheel, optional fold-down rear seat and AM radio. Its post-restoration care is exemplary, maintaining the Shelby's concours-level condition. Only sparingly enjoyed by the current owner, he has put it to the test nonetheless. In addition to listing in the SAAC Shelby Registry, documents include the original Shelby American owner's manual supplement and Shelby Serial Number Verification from Howard Pardee, SAAC 1965-66 GT350 Registrar.
