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.

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.
