1965 SHELBY GT350


This 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 at Sports Car Company is chassis number SFM5S208 (one of 504 street production examples built for the model year) and was first invoiced to Hi-Performance Motors of Los Angeles, California, on July 26, 1965. S208 was then shipped aboard the S.S. Santa Juana alongside five other 1965 GT350's including R211 and R213, that sold on BaT April 22, 2022, as the first 6 of 10 vehicles to Peru, where Luis Alvarado and Jorge Nicolini reportedly raced S208. According to the Shelby Registry and Peruvian Race Team, S208 won its first race on May 1, 1966, at the Lima-Trujillo-Lima race, with many more while it was there, according to the Shelby Registry and Peruvian Race team.

The car returned to the United States in 2002.

Later, in January 2007, it was sold at Russo and Steel for $269,525.00 to the previous owner. (See photo gallery for the bill of sale). This owner completed a full nut-and-bolt restoration at a cost of approximately $175,000 from 2013 to 2015 (seen in the photos). During this time, it was refinished in white with blue Le Mans stripes, 4-speed manual transmission, and additional equipment, including a locking rear differential, 15-inch Torq Thrust-style wheels, a dual side-exit exhaust system, an R-style front valance, polycarbonate rear and side windows, aircraft-style lap belts, and a fiberglass rear package tray that holds a spare tire.

This GT350 is now offered here at Sports Car Company with copies of historical documents, manufacturer's literature, refurbishment photos, and a New Mexico title.

The GT350 model was developed in the summer of 1964 following Ford's enlistment of Carroll Shelby to create a variant of the Mustang to satisfy SCCA homologation requirements. All 1965 GT350s were finished in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue rocker-panel stripes.
