Here's your chance to purchase 1 of 1365 Standard GT350 fastbacks that Shelby produced in 1966. This example with the Shelby serial number of 1073 was ordered Red with no stripes and shipped to Paul Miller Ford Inc. of Lexington, KY on 2/28/66. The current owner purchased #1073 approximately 7 yrs ago with the intentions to restore the Shelby to its original livery. The last two pictures show the state the car on that day he bought it. You can see the roll bar that was installed and the old style Auto meter gauges that lead us to believe the car was modified for drag racing. Over the next 7yrs the owner brought it back to its original state. In 2005, the car was painted the original G code Candy Apple Red paint with the stripe delete option. He was careful to not over-paint the car thus leaving the undercarriage exposed with the original Red Oxide Primer revealing the pristine floor pans void of any signs of cancer. In the trunk area there was some small panels that were beyond repair and were replaced. The interior is now period correct which includes the original seat belts and correct gauges installed. Only OEM reproduction parts were used in the restoration. No foreign cheap metals here!
Under the hood a period correct 306 bhp 329 torque,K-code 289 cu in V-8 resides with only 5k miles since rebuild. Its topped off with the correct 715 cfm Holley and Shelby intake manifold in which the air fuel mixture is activated by the solid lifter valve train breathing through the infamous Tri-Y headers. Its backed by the venerable Toploader 4-spd transmission and distributes those ponies via the 389 to 1 ration 9 inch rear end. The steering box was recently rebuilt just 500 miles ago.
