1965 Shelby GT350 Prototype with Rear Spoiler - First Public Glimpse
First glimpse of 5S319, the '65 GT350 Shelby Prototype for the '66 GT350s. 5S319, the factory engineering prototype for Shelby American has the following rare features including functioning side scoops for rear brake cooling, rear quarter windows for better visibility, underride traction bars for better traction, a rear spoiler to improve the stability, an AM 8-track radio for music and '66 spec GT350 side stripes... All of which were features on the 1966 models except for the rear spoiler that wasn't available until the 1967 models.
5S319 probably was the first American car to have ever received a factory rear spoiler and the only known Shelby GT350 to have received a rear spoiler before the 1967 models.
On August 14, 2010, this rare Shelby was sold for $201,000 at the Mecum Monterey auction during the famed Car Week in Monterey, California.
FOR SALE: 1967 Pontiac GTO 400 H.O. 4 SP Hardtop Coupe Concours Thom McAn Prize Winner Car
This Thom McAn GTO has received the Concours Gold award in 2007 from the GTO Association of America after it underwent a complete frame off restoration.
Documentation on this rare GTO includes the order sheets, the Concours Gold Award from the GTO Association of America, and signed letters from the Pontiac Historical Society president Jim Madison, and the Rocky Mountain Concours d'Eligance. Extensive photos and documentation books complete the merits of this unique historical piece of automotive history.
This very special car is one of two known GTO's in existence today from a Thom McAn Nationwide Sweepstakes. This GTO was awarded in the Thom McAn shoe company contest back in 1966, the stores had a smashing nationwide advertising campaign to give away Pontiac GTO cars to promote their new line of GTO shoes. Contestants merely had to go to a Thom McAn shoe store and check out the shoes which were cleverly placed under their noses.
The Great One" as it was named, was originally given to a Colorado woman, who sold to its second owner. There it remained until being stolen in 1979. It was discovered 18 years later near a salvage yard by Bryan S. who didn't realize its value until further down the road. Bryan's goal was to restore the car as correct as he could make it, right down to the custom Tiger Gold colored paint. Bryan's goal was certainly met when the superb concours restoration was complete in 2005. He restored a truly rare piece of Pontiac history.
This very rare, Thom McAn GTO Contest car is a colorful piece of automotive history. GTO's overwhelmingly had the best overall performance/dollar equation of its "muscle car" era.
This rare GTO is For Sale. For additional information, contact Mark by phone at (949)226-7053.
