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 more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6qh2wya 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 Firehawk radials. 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. If you're looking for an instantly recognizable classic that is scary fast and an absolute blast to drive, we have the car for you. Call now!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #40: 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 R Racing School Car
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek You could say that this 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 R has lived several different lives. It started off as a Wimbledon White '65 Mustang Fastback, then went off to Shelby American to be turned into a '65 Shelby G.T. 350. However, it did not go to a dealer for street sale, as it was selected to be used by Ford as a promotional vehicle. That tour of duty ended in August of '65, when the car went back to Shelby American for its next chapter for use as one of the 3 Shelby G.T. 350 Driving School cars. While there, the car slowly received modifications that basically transformed it into an R model Competition car. In fact, it was actually re-identified by Shelby as the 37th G.T. 350R Competition car while at Shelby American. The car was also used as the prototype for the G.T. 500 427 big block cars for 1967. The driveline was returned to a 289, and it was eventually sold as a G.T. 350 R and raced in SCCA events in California. The engine was blown, the car was stored, and the discovered in the late 1980s and restored to the form you see here today. It remains one of the most interesting stories of all the cars in the Brothers Collection, and one of our favorites here at Muscle Car Of The Week! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Chceck out: "​Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode #182: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 454 - The Last One?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pczqb76mhw -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
