LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1966 Shelby GT350
The 1966 Shelby GT350’s are aesthetically very similar to the original 1965's, but they were a little less purpose built race car and now more of a road going sports car. They retained their back seats, had slightly softer suspension, full under car exhaust systems and visually now had distinguishing rear quarter windows in place of the vents found on the '65 Shelby. They did however retain the special 306HP "K" code Hi-Po engine and 4 speed transmission as well as a new optional "cruise-o-matic" automatic transmission.
This fully documented 1966 Shelby GT350 offered for sale was originally ordered on March 24, 1966 and shipped to Marv Tonkin Ford Sales in Portland, Oregon. As per its Shelby invoice, it was finished in rare factory Sapphire blue with white Le Mans stripes. Under the hood is the standard 289ci Hi-Po producing 306HP backed by the factory aluminum T10 4-speed transmission. The engine is decorated with Cobra script aluminum intake, valve covers and oil pan.
Shortly after the car was purchased by its original owner, it was shipped to his home of Aiea, Hawaii. The original owner would retain ownership until his passing in 2002. The car changed hands a few times after until a long time shelby club member would begin its complete and fastidious restoration to SAAC Concours specifications.Great attention to detail was paid on top and as well as the underside to bring the car to this absolutely stunning example.
This 1966 Shelby GT350 is an example of what a complete nut and bolt, no expense spared rotisserie restoration can look like. Additonally, it comes fully documented and is listed in the Shelby American World Registry.
