Few things stir the Shelby lover’s heart like an early R-model GT350, the car that ruled B Production sports racing from the moment it first rolled out of Shelby American’s LAX factory. The description of this 1965 Shelby GT350 in the SAAC Shelby Registry notes that it was shipped new to Downtown Motors, Inc. in Sacramento, California, on May 29, 1965, its invoice totaling $4,001.40 including freight and Shelby/Cragar wheels. Serial number SFM5S115, it is the 115th GT350 produced. In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, its first three owners raced the car at various California tracks. In 1989, the current collector/owner purchased the car and set about converting it to R-model specification. The process involved several modifications, all of which were specified in homologating the GT350 for SCCA B Production racing. Most notable are the exterior changes, which included Plexiglas side and rear windows, blanked-off quarter window openings, the fiberglass front apron with Cobra oil cooler and brake-cooling scoops, and the American Racing Torque Thrust wheels at each corner. Inside, the R-model treatment began with stripping the carpets, dash and door panels and replacing the latter two with simple lightweight black-painted aluminum panels. The dash insert is fitted with Stewart Warner gauges, 8,000 RPM tach and speedometer, and the radio and heater deleted. Perhaps the most businesslike modification was the use of fabric straps and snaps to hold the Plexiglas side windows in place, eliminating the heavy window cranking mechanisms. A wood-rimmed Cobra steering wheel, 4-point roll bar, safety harnesses and fire extinguisher fill out the interior appointments. Finished in iconic Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes, Shelby number 115 retains its original Shelby-prepared 289 CI small-block V-8 and a Top loader 4-speed manual transmission. This well-known first-year Shelby GT350 has been with the same caretaker since 1989, was the featured GT350 at Carroll Shelby's Memorial held at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles in May 2012 and carries Shelby’s autograph on the left-side quarter window cover. Pieces of automotive history like this one don't come up for sale very often. Don't miss your golden opportunity to be this Shelby's next caretaker! Stk #N/A
