This might not be your run of the mill barn find but this 1965 Shelby GT350
has been sitting in some owners barn in Ohio for the last 27 years as a project that never got off the ground. The car has seen some better days with alot of rust on the body and the motor, trans and interior are completely gone. The body is verified as a 1965 Shelby GT350 through it's VIN# 5T09A18XXX and through the Shelby Tag that was pop-riveted on the drivers side inner fender panel.
The Shelby Tag decodes, SFM - (Shelby Ford Mustang), 5 - (model year 1965), S - (Street car). The VIN number decodes:, 5 - (model year as 1965), T - (Metuchen, NJ assembly plant), 09 - (Fastback), A - (engine code for 289ci 4V V8 271hp high performance), 18XXXX - consecutive unit number. In 1965 their were 516 Street production Shelby GT350's produced and they were all made in Wimbeldon White with Black interior.
This might be a good starting point for somebody with an original 289 from a 1965 Shelby GT350 but whoever wins this auction will be putting in alot of work to get this baby back on the road. The auction has a high bid of $1K and a Buy It Now of $7500.00. Check out the auction here
