36 Brand New 1965 Shelby GT350Rs Are Coming
The guys responsible for cranking out the original batch of competition-spec 1965 Shelby GT350Rs will begin producing a new round of the legendary race car, albeit with a few improvements.
Made up of Shelby American employees who were with the company from 1962 to 1965; Peter Brock, Jim Marietta and Ted Sutton, will begin building 36 brand new Shelby GT350Rs in the fall of 2017. However, this time the cars will feature improvements originally planned for the car back in ’65 but were squeezed out by time constraints.
“Much like Carroll Shelby’s original Cobra, the 1965 Ford Shelby GT350R changed the performance car landscape,” said Jim Marietta, CEO of Original Venice Crew Mustangs. “By adapting lessons that the Shelby team learned racing Cobras and Daytona Coupes, our Crew at Shelby American turned a ‘mule into a racehorse’ as Carroll Shelby would say.”
