This is a real Wimbledon White 1966 Shelby GT-350 fastback. It is a "carry-over" car. The first 252 Shelby GT-350s for 1966 had 1965 Mustang bodies and 1965 Mustang serial number plates under their Shelby serial number plates. These "carry-over" cars had mostly 1965 features including standard Koni shocks and their engines where painted black instead of blue.

Sapphire Blue 1966 Shelby GT350 fastback owned by John Drysdale from New York. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting May 27, 2012. It has the original 289ci V8 and a manual transmission. John adds, "I just came to own it, but have known the car and family since 1972. It's a survivor car that's completely original and unrestored. It has always had TLC and never abused! It has 53000 'actual' Miles! With original docs. All the ones I see for sale have 30000-50000 miles!
Seriously!! No way!! You better have a pile of paper work, oil changes and inspections to go with it."

This Raven Black 1966 Shelby GT-350 Hertz Mustang fastback was at the 2010 Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals held in the Seattle area of Washington. I waited most of the day to get these shots. It was cloudy most of the morning and then the hood was only partially opened. The gold stripes on this car were amazing. You could see them from a long ways off.
