1965 Shelby GT350

If the 1965 Ford Mustang is an automotive superstar, then the Shelby GT350 is a legend. Using Ford’s already incredible “K-Code” Mustang fastback as a basis, Carroll Shelby made the “it” car of the ’60s even hotter by making his version of the Mustang faster, lighter, and even more fun to drive. Five hundred sixty-two examples were built in the first year of production, and these are considered to be the most pure and desirable GT350s built in the model’s history.

RM Sotheby’s will be offering this example of the Shelby GT350 at the upcoming Arizona auction on the 28th January, the estimated value is between $325,000 and $375,000.
