When Carroll Shelby’s Mustang-based GT350 was introduced in 1965, it was big news. While Ford offered a 289-cid V-8 with 271 HP, Shelby coaxed another 35 horses from that same small block engine. On top of that, unique aerodynamic body parts, suspension upgrades, and other touches set these cars apart from the basic Mustang. 1966 saw several improvements and an order for 1,000 Hertz Rent-A-Car versions. When Ford revised the Mustang in 1967, more improvements and models were offered and, in 1968, even more with higher horsepower and a regular production convertible model. By 1968, Shelby had turned over production of the cars bearing his name to Ford but still had his hand in the design and marketing. For 1969, the Shelby had a look that was unmistakably its own. This year the GT350 employed the Windsor 351 V-8 engine topped by a fuel-thirsty four-barrel carburetor and, while the horsepower was officially rated at 290, those were conservative figures.

This beautiful example was produced at Ford’s Dearborn assembly plant during the early part of February 1969, and was delivered new by Fuller Ford Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio, to its first owner Russell Marsh. Driven and enjoyed for many years, in 1983 it was sold to Pam and Steve Elliott. Under their guidance the car was reported to have been given a full rotisserie restoration at which time the interior was freshened, all bodywork repaired or replaced as needed and all mechanical systems brought back up to factory standards. In August 1984, this Shelby was being offered for sale in Hemmings Motor News. By 2003, it was under the ownership of Lynn and Cindy Stewart, and in May 2003, they had it judged at an SCCA event where it was awarded a Silver Award, a feat this couple repeated two years later. Under their ownership, they upgraded the clock with a quartz movement and receipts show other maintenance was conducted as needed. In June 2011, this fastback beauty was acquired by Thomas Haag for his collection. A number of minor repairs were carried out by trusted restoration specialist Mitch Beyersdorf of Madison, Wisconsin. Today this incredible Shelby is ready for show or go.

Finished in its original Silver Jade paint with the black Clarion Knit covered bucket seats, it is fast and comfortable. Under the hood, the original Windsor 351 V-8 stands ready to go, backed up by the FMX automatic transmission paired with the 3.25:1 Traction-Lock rear axle. In addition to all the Shelby and Mustang standard features such as the 140 MPH speedometer, this car is equipped with the original AM radio, fold-down Sport Deck rear seat, and rides on its original Magnum 500 wheels fitted with Goodyear Polyglas F70 X 15” tires. The odometer shows 44,250 miles and, according to documents included, less than 600 miles have been added over the past 18 years. Other items included in the sale are two original broadcast forms from the Dearborn assembly plant plus the original factory inspection card, copies of the original invoice from Fuller Ford, and an original 1969 Shelby sales brochure. It was near the end of the era when American racing legend Carroll Shelby teamed up with Ford Motor Company to create this legendary automobile, and this is your chance to grab a piece of the legacy and have fun doing it too.
