Auction Block: Paxton-Supercharged 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350

Dec 7, 2020

Category: Rides

First introduced in 1965, the Shelby Mustang GT350 was a performance-oriented iteration of the iconic Ford Mustang, tuned by none other than American Le Mans legend Carroll Shelby. Under the hood, it packed a number of upgrades to make it race-ready, including a Cobra hi-riser, Tri-Y headers, and a set of improved brakes. In practice, this meant that Shelby’s variant was good for an impressive 306hp and 329lb-ft of torque compared to the 226hp and 305lb-ft of torque of the stock car.

The example before you is a stunning 1966 Shelby GT350 finished in its original Wimbledon White paint with Le Mans Blue stripes. Over its 54-year history, it’s had just four owners who’ve put a combined 91k on the odometer. Like other GT350s of the era, it comes standard with items like a steel-framed fiberglass hood with scoop and pins, plexiglass rear quarter windows, fiberglass scoops on the rear fenders, as well as a bullet-style side mirror. However, this particular pony car comes specced with Shelby-Crager 15” alloy wheels — an optional item on early ’66 models. What’s more, it was fitted with a Paxton supercharger and a Tremec T5Z five-speed manual transmission during its ownership in the 1990s. Bid now to make it yours.
