ebay Watch: Barn Find Yields 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

This might not be your run of the mill barn find but this 1965 Shelby GT350 has been sitting in some owner's 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 a lot of rust on the body and the motor, and the 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 driver's 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 V-8 271-hp high performance), 18XXXX - consecutive unit number. In 1965 there were 516 road-going Shelby GT350s produced and they were all made in Wimbeldon White with a 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 a lot of work to get this baby back on the road. The auction has a high bid of $1,000 and a Buy It Now price of $7500. Check out the auction here.
