A 1966 Shelby GT350 Brochure

by Mike –

The 1965 Shelby GT350 Mustang is a milestone car for many reasons and the 1966 model is probably a better driver. It has a top level collectability rating, although not as high as the 1965 model but not as expensive either.

The 1966 model was simply a Shelby GT 350, not a Mustang. Colors other than white were also introduced in 1966.

The easiest way to spot the difference between a 1965 and 1966 GT350 are the brake air scoops behind the doors on the 1966 model. The new version also had rear quarter-panel windows instead of vents. Options included the Select Shift 3-speed automatic and a Paxton supercharger.

The battery was located in the engine compartment instead of the trunk, the fold down rear seats were an option and dual-exhaust was standard.

There were 2,378 examples made in 1966 including 1,003 of the Hertz version and four convertibles.

Maybe someday I will find one for me.
