Today’s featured car is a 1966 Shelby GT350. Though these cars originally packed with 289-cubic-inch mills (with a heavy dose of Shelby performance modifications), this GT350 has received a heart transplant: a 347 stroker topped with Weber carbs and paired with a five-speed gearbox. Cars from the 1966 model year are distinguished by their glass rear-quarter panel windows; however, thanks to Shelby’s removal of the rear seats, the apertures didn’t benefit any backseat passengers. This example also carries the optional racing stripe graphics package.
This particular GT350 belongs to James Fee Langendoen, who has affectionately named it “Blue.”
