Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1966 Shelby GT350 Fastback

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. A one owner and unrestored Shelby GT350 is very rare and the price estimate reflects that rarity. The 1965 and 1966 Shelby GT350 are the Shelby Mustangs to own because of their very close connection to Shelby. They are essentially street legal race cars modified at the Shelby factory rather than at the Ford factory like some later models.

I do prefer the 1965 Shelby GT350 but this 1966 is tempting because of the originality and the one family ownership with all of the documentation. I also like this color and the fact that there is nothing to do because with an original car all you do is drive it and maintain it – no restoration work!

If you want to take it to a show or the track – you drive it there and back. The judges at the show won’t mind a little road dirt because that is expected on an original car.
