Vintage Photo of 1966 Shelby

1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang
I love old photos of cars, and I thought that I would share one that was recently sent to me.  There are a  few 66 GT350 Mustangs listed in the SAAC Shelby Registry as being originally leased by James McLean, Vice President and General Manager of Shelby American.

I stay in contact with one of James' sons, Bill.   Bill was the first "driver" of a car I have-6S033.   Bill worked at Shelby American for a time also. After he turned in that car, he drove 6S296. His sister, Sue got 6S298. This car is unique in that it was originally blue with a blue interior.  Yes, a blue interior!  Bill tells me that this photo was taken in front of their house in Palm Springs. The two kids are Bill's nephews-check out that kid's sized Shelby American shirt!! The car was drag raced by his sister and her boyfriend quite often.

I owned this car from 1991-1998 in Orange County. Still had blue interior then.
