The 1965 Shelby GT 350 was the first year of GT 350 production and is considered, by Automotive Historians, the quintessential Shelby muscle car. 1965 Shelby GT 350 serial number SFM5S166 has just undergone a complete ground up fresh rotisserie restoration to MCA and SAAC Concours Trailered standards by Shelby Mustang specialists R + A Motorsports. The restoration work was overseen by a SAAC Concours judge, to not only assure the finest workmanship but, to complete a true museum quality historically correct restoration. It is correct from Shelby factory Goodyear Blue dot tires to minuet details like assembly line chassis paint drops and color identification markings.
This GT 350 being # 166 made has all the very desirable features. The "porthole" hood was only used on the early cars and this car has a factory original, and not a reproduction hood (which has slight differences). Only the first 300 or so 65′ GT 350’s had the battery installed in the trunk, which was a weight distribution racing feature and was dropped for cost saving using the stock front battery location. This is a desirable factory rear battery car.
Since this is the first year of GT 350 production and only 521 examples were ever built, this assures the bidder that this collector car will continue to appreciate. Very rarely do 1965 Shelby’s come up for sale, let along a fresh Concours correct example like this one. This is a key car for any serious Shelby collector who only wants the best!
