LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1966 Shelby GT350
The Ford Mustang was a huge sales success when introduced in the spring of 1964. However, Lee Iacocca, Ford Division General Manager, was concerned that the Mustang, while selling well, lacked a performance image and did not fit into the Ford Division Total Performance marketing program. To correct the image issue, Iacocca called Carroll Shelby and asked if he could make the Mustang into a sports car with a winning performance image. The result was the Shelby GT350. This latest Shelby American performance car earned its sports car and performance image on road race circuits across America.
