Footnotes

  • In the Shelby American World Registry it is stated that this particular GT350 was built in December 1965 as a road car and shipped to Larsen Ford Inc in White Plains, New York on 10th February 1966. It was purchased by its first owner, Mark P Norman from Rowayton (CT), on 27th May 1966.

    In 1968 the car was bought by Angelo Dominguez, a Cuban racing enthusiast from Miami who immediately started racing it in national, SCCA (Sports Car Club of America), SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association) and ACALAM (Association of Latin American drivers in Miami) meetings. In the USA this car had SVRA Medallion status (FIA equivalent) confirming its racing pedigree, and was invited to run in the 1988 Vintage race of the Miami Grand Prix.

    The Shelby was then sold to Peter W Grimm Jr from Fort Lauderdale, who raced the car for four years in various events at Laguna Seca, Road America, Sears Point and an HSR race at Morose Motorsports Park in 1997. After some years he sold the car back to Angelo Dominguez and it was then bought by Mr Christopher A Layman, a lawyer in Florida.

    The car was raced at Sebring in June 2002 and ran flawlessly. Then it was prepared to race at Daytona in October/November 2002, including putting a new rear axle in the car. Unfortunately, an engine problem developed during practice, preventing the car from starting the race.

    When Mr Layman offered this car for sale in 2003 he described it as legal to run in HSR, SVRA, and SCCA events. According to him, the car was white with Guardsman Blue Shelby racing stripes and was last restored in 1987. The engine was rebuilt and the car sold to Jan Peeters of Holland, who brought it to Europe to race in FIA endurance events. During testing and practise it became clear that the car was not to correct FIA specifications, which Jan substantially corrected. The Shelby then raced in the European Historic Sportscar series, the Dutch GT series, The Oldtimer Grand Prix, and annually at the Spa 6 Hrs.

    The Shelby was bought by the current owner in 2010 and has now been restored to the correct FIA 1965 specifications and a new FIA HTP issued in 2018 for Period F and Class GTS-12. Since 2010 this Shelby Mustang has competed in the following races/series:

    Spa 6 Hours (eight consecutive years, 2011-2018)
    Le Mans Legends (2011)
    Le Mans Classic (2012, winner Plateau 5 Index)
    Le Mans Classic (2014)
    Sixties Endurance (2011-2018)
    Masters Endurance (2016-2017)

    In this period it has also raced with Peter Auto, Motor Racing Legends, Masters Racing, Redwater Racing, and the GT & Sports Car Cup.

    In 2017 the car went through an upgrade using the services of Nigel Rees of GSD RaceDyn. Suspension components including the steering box, collapsible steering column, wishbones, road springs, roll bars, and dampers were replaced to GSD specification, and the car was personally set up by Nigel Rees. GSD's full report is available. The Shelby is currently prepared by Wren Classics.

    Specification highlights include the following:

    Full roll cage new in 2018
    All suspension mounts on bodyshell crack tested and strengthened
    Lightweight (classic style) aircraft-specification wiring loom by TMME
    Long-range FIA bag fuel tank (2018)
    Correct FIA-specification Ford 289ci V8 engine by Peter Knight (dynamometer sheets available)
    T10 gearbox rebuilt by RW Racing
    Custom high-revs prop-shaft.
    Correct axle with Gripper limited-slip differential and race driveshafts, rebuilt by RW Racing (choice of ratios)
    Correct front callipers, dual master cylinder and all brake components fitted new with GSD update
    Competition linings and Cryo treated front discs fitted.
    Lightweight racing wheels with period-style Avon and Dunlop tyres fitted

    In short: this is a well-known, competitive and reliable car affording the prospect of access to some of the most prestigious historic motor sports events.
