1966 Shelby GT-350
Documented and Fully Restored Original
This 1966 Shelby was originally sold new at Hi-Performance Motors in El Segundo, CA, to John G. Bickers on March 1st, 1967. It has benefited from years of meticulous care, resulting in a fantastic example of a completely original Shelby GT 350. It comes complete with a matching K-Code Hi-Po 289/306 hp engine backed by a four-speed transmission and Ford 9-in. rear end.
It's styling is further enhanced by a 1965 Shelby-style side-dump exhaust, a dash-mounted tach, 3-in. lap belts and Magnum 500 wheels shod with the correct style of small-letter Goodyear Polyhlas bias ply tires.
Great attention to detail was taken during the restoration, including painting it to its original factory colour of Sapphire Blue with the proper red oxide primer under the body.
This beautiful classic will turn heads and impress, if not by its looks alone, most certainly by the sound of the engine. The vehicle comes fully documented in the Shelby American World Registry, complete with a copy of the original Shelby invoice.
