THE SHELBY GT350

The first Shelby Mustang - the GT350 - arrived in 1965 and featured a modified version of Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8 in a Fastback Coupe. This car quickly became an icon of hi-potency American sports cars and the decision was soon made to continue the relationship between Shelby and Ford. However important and successful, this relationship was not long lasting and in the summer of 1969, Carroll Shelby terminated his agreement with Ford Motor Company, ending the partnership. As a result, 789 unsold 1969 examples were given new chassis numbers and updated by Kar Kraft, featuring unique hood stripes and a chin spoiler.

The 1969 Shelby GT350 featured a 351 Windsor V8, a 290 horsepower unit that replaced the 302 used in 1968. As was the case with all Mustangs, these exhilarating sports cars featured a live rear axle and independent front suspension and front disc brakes and rear drums. From a design standpoint, the 1969 Shelby differed greatly from the 1968 examples, featuring crisper lines, large brake and engine ducts, and 4 inches added to its overall length, giving it a long, potent, and venerable presence.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunning GT350 rolled off the line on June 19, 1969, as the sole Grabber Yellow GT350 Fastback with an automatic transmission, black bucket seats, and an AM/8 Track stereo radio, as stated in its Marti Report. Along with this truly unique combination, this was the final Shelby Mustang chassis number and presumably built until the reintroduction of the model in 2006. Upon receiving its new VIN, hood stripes and chin spoiler at Kar Kraft, this stunning Mustang was delivered to its first owner Florida, the state in which it would remain until 2013.

In 2006, the previous owner of this important example entrusted Ed Meyer to sympathetically refresh and restore this Shelby to its original configuration. Given this car's incredible condition, the work performed was relatively minor, including new driver's lights and a new antenna. With fewer than 27,000 miles, this is not only the very last GT350 in a unique specification; it is also one of the most original and well-documented examples extant.

Included in the sale is an incredible collection of interesting historical documents pertaining to this car, including the original window sticker, build sheet, dealer order sheet, warranty-card, Shelby Automotive invoice, and certification from the Shelby American Automobile Club, all verifying the originality and provenance of this important and incredibly presented American icon.
