Customer Car - 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustang

SFM6S2279  1966 Shelby Mustang GT350
This is a scan of an old print that has been hanging on our showroom wall for a long time.  The car is a '66 GT350 number 6S2279.  It was purchased around 1983 by a good customer and friend of ours, Garland Gentry.  In exchange for a few parts or discounts on parts (I don't really remember!), we were instantly a sponsor of a vintage race car.

I don't think a lot of "race car" modifications were made at all on the car other than the cool side exhaust and the R Model roll bar.  It was certainly nothing like the vintage race cars of today or even of several years ago.  In fact, if I recall, he drove the it to Road Atlanta, raced in the Walter Mitty Challenge, finished in 3rd place, and drove it home!!

It is difficult for me to believe this photo is 30 years old now!!
