Crevier Classic cars is pleased to offer this 1966 Shelby GT350. #1747. Sold new at Fellini-Mayfield Ford of St. Louis, MO. The car is finished in its original combination of Blue with black interior and white stripes. This is an original 4 speed car and not a conversion like several out there. This beautiful Southern California GT350 is absolutely laser straight and shows beautifully. The white le mans stripes highlight just how straight the body is with excellent gaps and is complimented by the alloy wheels.
For 1966, the GT 350 lost its Mustang tag and was marketed simply as the Shelby GT 350. 1966 also saw the introduction of non-white colors, including blue, red, green and black. Other changes include special rear quarter-panel windows replacing the factory extractor vents, functional brake scoops on each side and optional automatic transmissions, as well as the addition of an optional Paxton supercharger. The battery was no longer relocated to the trunk for 1966, and the over-rider traction bars were discontinued. A fold-down rear seat was now optional. Where early 1965 cars had black engine blocks, 1966 and later cars had the 289 ci engine painted Ford dark blue. The 1966 Shelby had a full dual-exhaust. The 4-speed manual was no longer the only available transmission, with an optional SelectShift 3-speed automatic added.
The production for 1966 was 1,373 fastbacks, including two prototypes and four drag cars, and 252 early production models with Ford Mustang 1965 bodies. For Hertz Corporation, 1,003 fastbacks were produced, including two prototypes. Four convertibles were also produced, for a total of 2,378 units for 1966. A small number (recent estimates identify only 11) of the 1966 models were fitted from the factory with Paxtonsuperchargers. 1966 production numbers: GT 350 — 2,378 units (four were special order convertibles for Carroll Shelby, the rumor is that six were made, but only four correct VINs have been discovered).
