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.

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

1965 Shelby GT350-R Tribute "B Production, SCCA Competition Shelby"
Imagine yourself flying through hairpin turns, shifting gears and working
your way to the front, between a Camaro and Trans Am! White
knuckle grip on the wheel as you work through the gears! SCCA Racing at its
best is what inspired this 1965 Mustang Shelby R Tribute! Everything
on this car is built with Trans Am racing history and Carroll Shelby's 1965
GT 350 in mind. This car takes it a step further with about fifty more horsepower. The
engine is a 306 (302 bored .030 over) Mexican Block with 9.6 to 1
compression which runs on mid grade gasoline. Engine upgrades include a
FRPP Z-303 hydraulic roller cam and tie bar hydraulic roller lifters.
Edelbrock Performer RPM cylinder heads upgraded with screw in rocker studs,
guide plates, .550 lift hydraulic roller springs, and Comp Cams roller
rockers. The original S7MS Shelby intake, which has been ported to match
the heads, is topped off with a LeMans Holley Carburetor pushing 600 CFM.
The transmission is a 4 speed manual, 2.78 Top Loader known as the wide
ratio, with a Hurst Competition Plus shifter with a Ford shift handle. The
differential housing is an original 1965 Mustang K Code with a 3.50 ratio and
a Detroit Locker rear end. The front suspension has been lowered 1" to
lower the center of gravity and help in the turns. Also, helping the
steering, is a 1" front sway bar and a 3/4" rear sway bar, Shelby pitman
and idler arms, and Mustang
GT springs and gas shocks. The Exhaust
duty is handled by 4 tube headers with 2 ?" side exit Exhaust. Other new parts include a 3 core
radiator, Petronic ignition, R model front apron, Shelby Grill, Shelby
fiberglass hood, fenders, R model roll bar, fiberglass package shelf, 20
gallon gas tank with Cobra quick fill cap, Shelby deck lid pan, blanked out
gas cap, blanked out C-Pillar vents inside and out, deleted headliner,
deleted dash with Shelby R model gauge panel and new gauges, deleted glove
box door, deleted inner door panels with lightweight sheet metal
replacements, deleted rear bumper, Shelby Moto Lita steering wheel, Ray
Brown quick release lap belts with shoulder harnesses, original radio
delete plate, R model Lexan rear window with air gap, 15x7 Torque Thrust
wheels with BFG G Force radial tires, driveshaft safety loop, rear axle
limiting cables, and original Hi Po rear brake line hose and bracket. This
Mustang is painted
Wimbledon White with correctly spaced and tapered Guardsman Blue stripes
and Guardsman Blue side stripes. This car has been done correctly in every
aspect and would make a Mustang lover, or a Trans Am racing
lover very proud to own. Do you want to own a piece of history? Please,
