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.

This 5.0 liter Coyote powered 1965 Shelby GT350-H pro tourer mixes the best
attributes of a modern performance car with the unmatched swagger and
exclusivity of a classic muscle car.
Covered in a coat of Ford code A Raven Black basecoat/clearcoat paint and
topped with traditional code Z Sauterne Gold Metallic Shelby stripes that
include correctly stenciled "G.T. 350 H" callouts, this is a lust worthy
fastback tribute car with an all business attitude. At the leading edge of
the car a Shelby style grille with horizontal bars and an offset Mustang emblem sits between two clear
and perfectly functioning stainless trimmed headlights. Below that grille,
a Shelby 'R' front valence replaces the car's front bumper and incorporates
a larger air intake between two chrome trimmed bullet style marker lights.
At the top of the grille, a weight reducing fiberglass hood carries a
traditional Shelby hood scoop and aligns perfectly with the car's front
fenders and front valence. At the back of the car, new Shelby exclusive
plexi-glass rear quarter inserts sit above Shelby style air scoops that are
mounted just ahead of the rear wheels.
Looking completely natural between the cars satin black fenders is an
all-aluminum DOHC Ford Motorsports 5.0 liter Coyote motor that's rated at
pavement scorching 412 horsepower and a hefty 390
lb./ft of torque. Utilizing redesigned cylinder heads that are equipped
with 32 light weight valves and variable valve timing, a long runner single
scroll intake with a direct mount throttle body, a forged steel crank and
forged steel connecting rods that are equipped with oil cooled
hypereutectic pistons, this silver rocket creates a stout 11 to 1
compression ratio and has a 7,000 RPM redline. At the front of the engine,
the 80 mm throttle body mixes air from a custom stainless air induction
system with fuel from a Speed Inc. return style race ready fuel system.
Breathing is optimized by Stainless Works tubed headers which sit at the
sides of an eight quart high capacity oil pan that allows the car to pull
over 1g without losing oil pressure. Cooling is supplied by a custom
aluminum radiator which is equipped with an electric fan and a sweet
looking Shelby radiator cap. And tuning is supplied by an SCT Performance
tuner with a glove box mounted port and a custom Speed Inc. tune.
Behind this car's serious motor is a new Spec clutch equipped Tremec TKO600
5-speed manual transmission that sends power to a Posi-traction Ford 9 inch
rear end with huge 3.90 gears. At the front of the car, a new Heidts
subframe combines with tubular control arms, coil over shocks and Heidts
power rack and pinion steering to provide excellent grip and handling. At
the back of the car, new leaf springs and shocks sit in front of a new
stainless fuel tank that is equipped with stainless fuel lines and a new
fuel pressure gauge. The cars manual braking system has been upgraded with
slotted and drilled rotors at all four corners, and a custom fabricated 2.5
inch Exhaust system features an
X-pipe, polished Magnaflow mufflers and rear mounted polished tips. At the
corners, spectacular looking 17 inch replica Magnum 500 wheels wear Hertz
Sports Car Club spinners and 225/45 front and 245/45 rear Firestone
Inside the car you'll find a freshly restored factory vinyl interior that
is super nice and fits the character of this custom Mustang perfectly. The front seats
wear their new covers well and feature firm padding that's probably spent
most of its life holding trophies instead of people. Below the seats, new
black carpet anchors cool Shelby branded front seat belts and is protected
by retro rubber Shelby floor mats. In front of the driver, a great looking
chrome trimmed dash includes a speedometer set between gauges for the cars
vitals, a correct AM radio and a large glove box. Connecting the driver to
the road is an excellent looking deluxe steering wheel that sits in front
of a column mounted Shelby tachometer and features a wood rim, polished
spokes and a polished Shelby horn button.

and an absolute blast to drive, we have the car for you. Call now!

and Shelby fans, this one will make your day.
1966 Shelby GT 350
At the 1965 New York International Auto Show I met Carroll Shelby. He had a
small space where he was displaying the new GT 350, The Sunbeam Tiger, and
a GT40. I was 14 and very independent. I knew of Carroll Shelby from my
father and I introduced myself to him at the show. He said he remembered my
father well and was wondering If I was going to follow dads footsteps in
racing. In spite of the demands on him he took his time giving me a
personal tour of the three cars he was involved in. As I was leaving He
gave me a poster of the GT350 that was a reprint of the April 1965 add that
ran in Competition Press and Autoweek. I still have the poster, and even
though I have known Carroll and worked for him and had him as a neighbor in
Lake Tahoe, I never asked him to sign the poster. In my mind it is a
cultural thing and I have had it since before he became a major celebrity
and my children will inherit it just as I have enjoyed it all these years.
The Poster is Black and white and at the top is a 3/4 rear view photo of a
65 white 350. Just Below in very large bold print spanning the full width
of the photo in blue Capital Letters G.T. 350 The add reads as Follows
