1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 VIN: SFM5S517 This blue striped beauty is number 517 of the 562 Shelby Mustang GT350s built in 1965. The smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models, the 2-seater fastback came with the â€˜Cobra hi-riser' K-Code 289ci, 306 hp V8 attached to a 4-speed manual transmission. As with all 1965 GT350s, 5S517 is painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue rocker stripes. It has the optional Le Mans top stripes, also in Guardsman Blue. Finished in July of 1965, 5S517 remained in Shelby American's possession until January of 1966 when the car was finally sent out into the world to find its first owner. It found a home in the spring of 1966 with Fred H. Thompson of Jackson, MS. After a couple years of use Fred fancied a 1962 Corvette belonging to Ronnie MacDowell, also of Jackson, MS and traded the car straight across. MacDowell got the itch less than a year later, and 5S517 was swapped again, this time to Mississippi lawyer and racer Sam E. Scott for a 1967 Shelby GT350 #097. Scott was a partner with Car and Driver editor William Jeanes in the legendary Southern good times racing team, Bolus & Snopes. Known for their lighthearted attitude towards professional racing,
1966 Shelby GT 350 s/n SFM6S1433, Engine no. 6R09K172853 (included) Red with White Stripes and Black Interior More than fifty years ago Carroll Shelby put his name on the first K-coded Mustang fastback, packing the potent 289/271 hp engine and just a handful of other changes, making the now legendary GT 350. And while individual modifications were seemingly minor to an already potent Hi-Po package, the collective difference was remarkable. Shelby knew how to market the new cars, his team knew how to drum up media interest, and with Ford race support, the word was out – if you wanted a capable American performance car that could compete against any of the high priced European offerings, the GT350 was a great choice. Not only was the GT350 a performance car, utilizing the proven Mustang platform, enthusiasts could enjoy American reliability and sports car handling without worrying about costly maintenance or difficulty acquiring parts. By 1966 successful sales and racing momentum with Ford had grown significantly. Both Shelby and Ford increased their marketing efforts, expanding the Shelby offering, beginning with a range of paint colors including red, blue, green, black, as well as

--Red with White stripes “Scuderia Filipinetti” 1965 Le Mans race livery, 5-speed Richmond gearbox, 2,000 since original build and only 500 miles on engine. The Cobra Daytona…North America was conquered, but Ferrari still reigned supreme in the FIA World Endurance Championship, run for GT cars. Most championship races where held on high speed tracks where the Cobra with their brick-like aerodynamics was at a disadvantage. To solve this problem, Shelby commission Peter Brock to design a coupe body for the Cobra chassis. Dubbed the Daytona Coupe, the 20 mph faster Cobra made its debut in the 1964 season. In the 1965 season and its eleven races against its fiercest of competitors Ferrari, the Cobra Daytona Coupe won eight. Today, the Daytona is best remembered for the two consecutive GT class victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in ’64 and ’65. In these four seasons, the Cobra built up and impressive racing records on both sides of the Atlantic. Only six examples of the Daytona Coupe were constructed making it one of the most sought after vehicles in the world today. This is a faithful replica of the famous Daytona Coupe CSX-2602. This tribute to CSX-2602’s build specs are as follows…
This car was built over a two year period by a very well-known Cobra expert and preparer of many front running cars. It is built to the very highest specification (available upon request) and is accompanied by valid HTP papers. This example is ready to be raced and is a front running car having finished second overall at the Goodwood Members Meeting in 2016 with a fastest lap time of under 1 minute 25 seconds.
Description This highly desirable example of an FIA Shelby registered Fastback is a 1966 example presented in the correct Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes and FIA’d in April 2012 and thus is ready for the most prolific of race series’ including HSCC, Masters et al. Although not a matching numbers car we believe this may have been built originally as a GT350 and later re-shelled. However, we cannot confirm this and are selling this car as a GT350 recreation this is a cost effective way into the most prolific of race series’ notably the Spa 6hrs where in 2012 two GT350’s recorded a first and second in class. With the very best genuine Shelby GT350’s now commanding north of £200,000, this particular car represents fantastic value and will provide many seasons of fantastic racing for its new owner.
This stunning blue with white racing stripe Shelby GT350 is called a “Carry Over Shelby” and was built in 1965, but was held over, and titled as a 1966. It was dispatched 10/26/1965 to City Motors in National City, CA and its first owner was W. R. Evans. It has been set up for vintage racing with an R-Model apron, fuel cell, and fire system, as well as a race clutch and locker rear end. Even though it is driveable on the surface streets, it would not be as much fun. It is presently race prepped, and was race prepped before every race. It was repainted in 2001 and won 2nd place in the Shelby Competition class by popular vote at the SAAC-27 California Speedway in the summer of 2002. It ran the GT350/Trans Am Race at SAAC-27, and at the same event, it qualified 26th, finishing 22nd. It ran the high speed even at SAAC Does Vegas-8 in July of 2004, and the SAAC Does Vegas-10 in February 2006. Since 2001 it has raced at thirteen Coronado Speed Festival events (San Diego, CA); seven Wine Country Classics (Infineon Raceway); eleven Monterey Historic (Laguna Seca, CA); three Seattle Historic races (Pacific International Raceway Seattle, WA); two Portland Historics (Portland, OR); and multip
1964 Shelby 289 Cobra VIN: CSX 2518 CSX 2518 was originally billed to Shelby American on 7/21/64, and later shipped to LA aboard the SS Dongedyk on 7/30/64. Once completed at Shelby American the car was invoiced on 11/3/64 to Reynolds Motors of Syracuse NY for $6,150.05. CSX 2518 would next appear in Colorado in June of 1980 under the ownership of Ray Danton. He would bring 2518 to Mike Dopudja of Mike's Performance Headquarters in Englewood, CO in 1981 for restoration and race prep. Dopudja, a master fabricator, is known for having finished the famous Shelby Type 65 Daytona Super Coupe, and for prepping the Shelby Can-Am Cobra. Danton would race the car at the Atlanta Vintage Grand Prix at Road Atlanta in 1982, as well as showing it at the Old Care Council Show in Denver, CO. In late 1985 he would put the Cobra up for sale for $65,000, but it wouldn't be until December 15, 1988 that John Baldwin of Covington, LA would purchase the car. Baldwin would enjoy CSX 2518 as a road car for most of the next decade, taming the car of its racing heritage and make it the streetcar it is today. The car would be repainted its beautiful Guardsman blue during his ownership. He would comment that,
