FORD SHELBY MUSTANG GT350
Production of the Ford Shelby GT350 in 2014 – its final year – ended with just 87 built. “The model’s limited production has long been part of its appeal,” said John Luft, president of Shelby American, at the time. “When this car was unveiled, we promised that the modern version of the Shelby GT350 would be available for a limited run. This decision was made to preserve the Shelby American-built GT350’s collectability and value. We've been preparing for this day since Shelby American launched this in 2010.” Shelby’s customization of the GT350 varied, but began at $26,995 on top of the price of the car. Features of the souped-up Pony car included body add-ons, 19” aluminum alloy wheels, racing-style suspension, sport-tuned brakes and, for some, a supercharger, bumping the horsepower to over 600hp.
Documented with a copy of the sales order from Shelby American, Inc., in Las Vegas, this GT350’s options totaled $46,752. At the heart of the modifications was a black 624 FR Whipple supercharger and included numerous other options, such as red brakes, FRPP suspension, matte black stripes and satin black wheels, upgraded cooling system, Billett Watts link, GT500 rear spoiler, body color block-offs, upper/lower control arms and premium floor mats (still in the plastic). The MSRP touched $98,224 for the car when it was completed and was offered by Ford Country in Henerson, NV. According to the clean, one-owner CARFAX, this Sterling Gray Metallic Shelby with a Recaro black leather interior was first registered in Texas and subsequently serviced there. With an odometer currently reading just under 400 miles from new, CSM143500032 is still “in the wrapper,” with some plastic still apparent in the car. A collectible car from its final year of production, this GT350 impresses with aggressive performance, exhilarating handling and exceptional craftsmanship.
