In the Beginning.
Shelby's first Mustang was the 1965 Shelby GT350 ; a powerful race car credited with enhancing the Mustangs image as a performance machine. Ford, having seen the success Carroll Shelby had made of the Cobra race car, knew he was the man to make the Mustang a respected race machine. The company reached out to him to see if he could create a high performance Mustang for street and track. Shelby was up for the task, and began work on the project in August of 1964. In September, the first Shelby GT350s were built.
The 1965 Shelby GT350 was first revealed to the general public on January 27th of 1965, the same month that.
