1965 Shelby GT-350 Barn Find

Garaged in the early 1970s where it remained for 40 years, this all-original 1965 Shelby GT-350, originally sold to Galpin Ford, has only 44,000 original miles. Galpin’s Classic Auto Service was challenged with keeping all the patina while getting the Mustang into road-worthy condition. This pony was given a complete major tune up: the brake system was refurbished while retaining the original components; all component fluids were changed; the heater was rebuilt with a new core; the cooling system was restored to ensure efficient operation and reliability; and the wheel alignment was checked and set to specification. This GT-350 features original Wimbledon White paint with Guardsman Blue stripes, original 289 cid V8 engine giving 306HP, and original interior! Other specs include a 4-Speed Borg Warner Full Synchromesh T10 Transmission and 9.5” Kelsey Hayes Front Disc Brakes. After its extensive servicing, the GT-350 was driven by Galpin VP Beau Boeckmann over 300 miles from L.A. to Pebble Beach, where – culminating in a perfect performance – the “barn find” was shown at the Quail Lodge Motor Sports Gathering at the Concours d’Elegance!
