It’s not often that two motorsport legends happen to have a hand in the same vehicle, so, when they do, the result is bound to be something special. Just take this 1966 Shelby GT350 that’s going up for sale as part of Barrett-Jackson’s September Houston Auction, for example.
After the great Sir Stirling Moss retired from racing in 1962, he continued to make appearances at various classics events held around the world. A fan of the Shelby GT350 from his drive at the Monterey Historics, he went on to purchase this particular example — SFM6S089 — in 1992. From there, he campaigned the car at the Targa Tasmania, Silverstone, and a number of other competitions held throughout Europe. However, despite racing his Shelby to success and loving the car for its handling, Moss parted ways with it in 1999. Nevertheless, the two were reunited eight years later at the 2007 Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance, where Caroll Shelby actually drove the GT350 onstage and proclaimed it “The Moss Car.” When you consider that it comes in competition configuration with its original paint, period racing seats, and “Driver Stirling Moss” script on the doors, this is one opportunity that you won’t want to miss.
