recognized American Muscle Car and has spurned generations of car
enthusiasts. The stunning design, vast options lists and various
performance options made the Mustang an instant hit and one that
would withstand the test of time.
The most desirable variant of the first Generation Mustangs was the

About the Shelby Mustang:
The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance variant of the Ford
Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1967, and
from 1968 to 1970 by Ford.
All 1965 GT350s were painted in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue
rocker stripes. Very few GT350s were delivered to the dealer with
the optional "Le Mans" (or "LeMans") top stripes, which run the
length of the entire car. Approximately 28% of the 562 1965 cars
built had Le Mans stripes. Dealers often added the stripes,
probably at the customer's request. Today, it is difficult to find
a GT350 not so equipped.
Many ERT 1965 cars had the battery relocated to the trunk, which
was changed mid-year from complaints of fumes, and had over-rider
traction bars, relocated A-arms, as well as other modifications.
Over-rider traction bars are so named because of their design being
on top of the leaf spring as opposed to underneath them. There was
only one transmission available, a 4-speed Borg-Warner T10 manual.
The exhaust system in the 1965 GT350 was a side-exit dual exhaust
with glasspack mufflers. For this one year, the GT350 also had
special 130 mph (210 km/h)-rated Goodyear "Blue Dot" tires, named
for the prominent blue dot on each sidewall. The 1965 GT350 had a
full size spare tire mounted in place of rear seats, making it a
2-seat-only vehicle (to be allowed to race under SCCA regulations
as a "sports car"), and rode on either silver-painted steel wheels
or special cast-magnesium center "Cragar Shelby" 15" rims with
chromed center caps marked with a stylized "CS". Total 1965 model
year production was 562 units.
For 1966, the GT350 lost its Mustang tag and was marketed simply as
the Shelby GT350.8 #fn8 The new model year also saw the
introduction of non-white colors, including blue, red, green, and
black. Other changes included special rear quarter-panel windows
replacing the factory extractor vents, functional brake scoops on
each side, and optional SelectShift 3-speed automatic, as well as
an optional Paxton supercharger. The battery was no longer
relocated to the trunk for 1966, and the over-rider traction bars
were discontinued. The normal factory fold-down rear seat was
optional. While early 1965 cars had black engine blocks, 1966 and
later cars had their engines painted the regular factory Ford dark
blue. The 1966 models came with a dual-exhaust exiting in the
The first 252 GT350s for 1966 began as 1965 Mustang K-Code
Fastbacks. These cars were specifically ordered by Shelby American
for conversion into 1966 GT350s. Upon delivery to Shelby-American,
the cars were randomly picked for conversion. The Shelby VINs do
not correspond in numerical order with Ford VINs. The Ford VINs
were shipped in 'blocks,' but many differ significantly because of
the order that they were selected for conversion.
Total production for 1966 was 1,373 fastbacks, including two
prototypes and four drag cars, and the 252 early production models
with Ford Mustang 1965 bodies. In order to help Shelby sales, Ford,
the major shareholder of Hertz, persuaded the rental car giant to
purchase 1,003 fastbacks, including two prototypes. Four
"experimental" GT350 convertibles were also built for test purposes
in anticipation of a 1967-1/2 convertible9 #fn9 offering, bringing
total production to 2,378 units for 1966. A small number of the
1966 models were fitted from the factory with Paxton superchargers,
but not the No-Spin limited slip differential; with an option price
of $670, the engine was rated at 440HP.
