Customer Car - Early 1966 GT350 Mustang Shelby

Everybody always tells as they enjoy seeing pictures of cool cars here on our Blog Posts. Well, here is a rare one. It is one of the first 252 1966 GT350 Mustangs. These were actually 65 model Mustangs that were "converted" to 66 specifications by Shelby American.

Sharp readers will note the 65 model style door panels, dash pad and seat upholstery in this "1966" model car.

Shelby American had to have a bit of time to modify the cars that were ordered from Ford. In order to get the 1966 models ready for the new model year, they had to get these 65 Mustangs to convert since Ford was not actually running the 66 Models yet.

This car will be at SAAC-35 the national convention of the Shelby American Automobile Club in August at Sonoma, CA.

I also noticed the 1965 curved glove box which was on the "idiot light" style dash coupled with the full instrument panel which is definitely a unique feature.
