Car(s) of the Month

1965 & 2015 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R

PicMonkey Collage for Ryan

This 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is the most complete original version of this famous race car, having all its engine parts and body panels confirmed as it left the factory. It is the 27th version built and the grandfather, in effect, of the 2015 Shelby GT350R, which also appears in this collection and shares the same build number. In 2015, to commemorate the legendary Shelby GT350R’s 50th anniversary, Ford produced 37 cars to honor the 37 GT350Rs that were built by Carroll Shelby in 1965.
