This Wimbledon White 1965 Mustang Shelby GT-350R fastback was built for racing. It was not a street-legal car. This car was listed on Craigslist back in 2008. The photos are from the listing. At the time, it was the most expensive car ever listed on Craigslist. The listing said, "Car #530 one of only 35 Produced (1 of 25 still remaining). These "R" code GT 350's were unique in that they represented the first time an American auto manufacturer offered a strictly-for-racing model that was SCCA B/Production compliant. This vehicle was shipped to Lima Peru on 7/29/66 and raced extensively on the South American circuit. It was the South American Champion in it's class and the Peruvian National Champion in the late 60's. Brought back to the US in 1984, I have a copy of the original Shelby American Invoice Referring to SFM 5R530 as a 1966 GT 350 Race dated June 28, 1966. PLEASE NOTE: According to the Illustrated Shelby Buyers Guide by Lamm & Nicaise 1992 page 60 - "That last batch incidentally is often referred to as the 1966 R-models; they were assembled after regular 1965 GT350 production had shut down" "They were given serial numbers , though, and titled as 1965 models." # 5R530 is one of these vehicles."
