Lot #1362 - This 1966 Shelby GT350 fastback is one of only 1,373 and originally born a street car with a rare automatic transmission option. One of the greatest things about this Shelby is it can be used as a race car or registered street car and driven on rallies. This is an amazing race car with a great history. In 1966 the Shelby GT350 Mustang dominated on the race track, making this Shelby the perfect candidate to convert to a race car for SCCA B-production racing. In the late '90s the car was converted.
