"A commercial Mustang racer, born from a collaboration between Ford and Shelby."
Ford and Shelby American have formed one of the most successful partnerships in American racing in the Sixties. Among the race cars they created was the GT350R, which went to battle in the 1965 SCAA B-production race.
Ford and Shelby decided to produce a production version of this race machine, but one that could easily be turned into a bonafide race car. This car was known as the Mustang GT350.
The base GT350 "S" used the Mustang Fastback GT as a foundation, then added a high-output engine and racing spec suspension. The "R" took things a few steps further by increasing the power of Ford's small-block 289 cu.-in. pushrod V-8 and included anti-roll bars and a large fuel tank (Ford's big-block V-9 wouldn't fit into the car's engine bay).
In short, the vehicle was race ready and positioned to take on the Chevrolet Corvette in the USSRC (United States Road Race of Champions). The suspension settings between the "S" and the "R", but what set the "R" visually apart from the "S" was its FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) bumper and large grille.
There were only 35 Shelby GT350Rs produced, two of which were the prototypes used in the works cars for Shelby American. The 1965 Shelby GT350R was the SCAA B-production champion in 1965, 1966 and 1967.
