1966 Shelby Mustang GT 350 description
Original black-plate California car - Never been out of the state - Original paint, Original drive-train, original interior, tons of documents
For 1966, the GT350 lost its Mustang tag and was marketed simply as the Shelby GT350.The new model year also saw the introduction of non-white colors, including blue, red, green, and black. Other changes included special rear quarter-panel windows replacing the factory extractor vents, functional brake scoops on each side, and optional SelectShift 3-speedautomatic, as well as an optional Paxton supercharger. The battery was no longer relocated to the trunk for 1966, and the over-rider traction bars were discontinued. The normal factory fold-down rear seat was optional. While early 1965 cars had black engine blocks, 1966 and later cars had their engines painted the regular factory Ford dark blue. The 1966 models came with a dual-exhaust exiting in the rear.
The first 252 GT350s for 1966 began as 1965 Mustang K-Code Fastbacks. These cars were specifically ordered byShelby Americanfor conversion into 1966 GT350s. Upon delivery to Shelby-American, the cars were randomly picked for conversion.
Total production for 1966 was 1,373 fastbacks, including two prototypes and four drag cars, and the 252 early production models with Ford Mustang 1965 bodies. In order to help Shelby sales, Ford, the major shareholder of Hertz, persuaded the rental car giant to purchase 1,003 fastbacks, including two prototypes. Four "experimental" GT350convertibleswere also built for test purposes in anticipation of a 1967-1/2 convertibleoffering, bringing total production to 2,378 units for 1966. A small number of the 1966 models were fitted from the factory withPaxtonsuperchargers, but not the No-Spinlimited slipdifferential; with an option price of $670, the engine was rated at 325 hp

Stephen Becker personally works side by side with the Shelby American Automobile Club registrars and have supported their efforts to keep Carroll Shelbyâ€™s automobiles and contribution to the automotive industry alive.
Stephen Becker is one of the most renowned Shelby authorities in the world, announced the introduction of a new certified appraisal program for 1960s Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. Previously available only to a select group of companies and celebrities, SGBâ€™s invaluable expertise is now available to individuals contemplating the sale or purchase of a vintage Shelby car.
â€œFor years, MOPAR, Corvette and Ford collectors have had access to detailed appraisals from experts in those cars, but enthusiasts have not been able to tap a form program when considering the purchase or sale of a Shelby,â€ said Becker. â€œWith the expertise, records and access to details of Cobras, GT500s and GT350s available through me, collectors can now have the knowledge they need when making a decision on a Shelby they want to purchase or sell.â€
Becker personally has performed evaluations for years and attended key collector car auctions for a small group of corporate clients like insurance companies and manufacturers. In late 2009, Stephen Becker provided an appraisal of 75 cars in the corporate and museum collection of Shelby American. The appraisals were done for Shelbyâ€™s insurance company, which requested current values of the extensive collection of significant cars. Other high profile corporate and celebrity clients have included the famous Shelby Parts & Restorations company, as well as leaders in the music and entertainment industry.
â€œShelby cars are usually considered blue chip collectibles, but each must be carefully inspected and appraised to understand the true value,â€ noted Becker. â€œNot only is it important to ensure a car is a genuine Shelby, itâ€™s critical to understand its history. The value difference between a survivor car with great provenance and a Shelby â€˜rebuiltâ€™ from a few major components left over from a wreck can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.â€
Stephenâ€™s knowledge and extensive library led to the creation of the Becker Certified Shelby Certification program. A proprietary 25 point inspection and exhaustive research provides the most thorough report on the market for genuine Shelby vehicles.
Over the past decade, Stephen Becker has been retained by key automotive groups, collectors and industry leaders to authenticate and value Shelby vehicles. This led to the creation of a program for individual collectors and enthusiasts. When completed, a client received a detailed report with a history of the vehicle, if available, and documentation to validate the value.
Since 1977, Stephen Becker has been regarded as a leading authority on 1960s era Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. The companyâ€™s expertise and in-depth knowledge have been tapped by clients to purchase, consign and restore original Shelbyâ€™s. SGB has represented clients around the world on stage when their Shelbyâ€™s crossed the block.
