Carroll Shelby’s 1966 GT350H Mustang Fastback

Nov 7, 2016

Category: Rides

Indisputably, one of the most widely recognized, respected, and influential people in the history of Ford Motors, besides Mr. Henry Ford himself, is Carroll Shelby. If you’ve never heard of him – may God help you – he is the Shelby in “Shelby Cobra” and “Shelby Mustang.” The man is a legend, to say the least. And now you have the chance to own a 1966 Shelby Mustang Fastback that was owned by Mr. Shelby himself – if you can afford it.

Going up for auction at Mecum Dallas from November 2-5, this impeccable 1966 Shelby Mustang (No. 1822, 1 of 999 produced) is equipped with a standard-issue Shelby 289/306 HP V-8 engine with dual-exhaust, a four cylinder carburetor, and a high-performance C6 3-speed automatic transmission. It also features independent front suspension with coil springs, a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, front disk and rear drum brakes, and a stamped steel hood. There’s no information on auction price, but you can bet on this gorgeous piece of automotive history being a bank breaker. [Purchase]
