Original owner since purchased new at El Paso Auto Center (a local Ford dealer) on Tuesday, October 12, 1965. Converted rear quarter vents to the ’66 GT350’s plexi-glass quarter windows, which were purchased from Shelby-American. Installed "R" model components and entered in first SCCA drivers school at Riverside Raceway in 1966. Converted to a heavy duty radiator, added the oil cooler with the "Cobra" lettered adapter kit, put in a roll bar and fiberglass front apron, Mallory dual point distributor and a Stewart-Warner electric fuel pump, all purchased from Shelby-American while Carroll was selling these neat parts. Driven to California to get new tires and a tune-up at Lew Spencer & Carroll Shelby Motors in March 1966.
Blown the engine by breaking a connecting rod at Castle Rock in 1969 and the block was scrap after that, so purchased a Boss 302 block with a 289 crankshaft and rods. Also installed TRW 13.25:1 pistons, had the rotating mass balanced, installed GT40 valves with 390 valve springs, ported and polished the heads and put in a Reed camshaft with something like 306 degree duration and lift of .500".
In 2004, the SAAC magazine reported it as the GT350 in the hands of the original owner longest. It’s raced side by side with Bob Tullius, Don Roberts, Jim Fitzgerald and Janet Guthrie.
