1965 Shelby GT350 sn:5S391
Original 1965 Shelby GT350; first year for the Shelby and 1 of 562 examples; dressed in its original famous White and Blue Racing Stripe livery. This car is fully documented and in the Shelby Registry.
According to the SAAC Shelby Registry, chassis number SFM 5S391 was received at Shelby American on May 12, 1965 and the conversion work was instituted on June 7, 1965 with a completion date of June 14th. The Shelby was ordered on July 28, 1965 and the record shows it being shipped to Warren-Anderson Ford in Riverside, California on July 30th and invoiced $3,547, plus Cragar wheels and freight for a total of around $3,900; with Le Mans stripes being added free of charge. The GT 350 was purchased by the original owner, Weber & Cooper Leasing in Ontario, California on August 17, 1965.
Later ownership history recounts that the Shelby was owned by a police officer named Mr. Reed of Chico, California who was forced to sell the car after being shot in the kneecap and could no longer depress the clutch pedal. It then picks up with Lynn Barnett of Santa Ana, California restoring the Shelby with a Boss 302 V-8 engine fitted with Weber carburetors, a Ford Top Loader four-speed manual transmission and leather interior that was fashioned in its original style. After further possessors and being featured in numerous magazine articles, including Popular Cars in December 1985, the Shelby was purchased by the current collection in 2007 after the Shelby had been dormant for approximately 14 years. The GT 350 had the 302 Boss V-8 with Webers in it at the time of purchase, and the car has been restored with this power-plant on board.
The Shelby was built with humbling competition in mind; there will be no excuses, these cars will blow most machines away from point A to point B. Shelby GT 350 - Ford Total Performance the way Carroll Shelby planned.
To reiterate, this Shelby has a fully balanced and blueprinted race engine in it that was installed but it includes the Original Matching numbers engine complete with it as well as the original wheels and tires. It is in the Shelby registry and is fully documented. This car underwent a cosmetic restoration when purchased by its current collectors that was performed by world re-known Shelby & Cobra Shop, Cobra Automotive. This is a fully documented real Shelby GT350. This car also wears Carroll Shelbys name on the underside of the trunk!
