Peter Brock was Shelby's head designer and one of the individuals responsible for making the necessary modifications to the Shelby Mustang to fix it shortcomings, such as its lack of options and inaccessibility. The cars performance and usability was enhanced, and for 1966, air-intake scoops were added which aided in providing necessary cooling air to the rear brake pads. The C-pillar sail panels were removed and replaced with clear Plexiglas windows. Also, four new color options were added and rear seats could be installed to comply with SCCA racing regulations.
In the Spring of 1966, Young Motor Co. of Charlotte, North Carolina took possession of this car shortly after it had been shipped from Shelby's Los Angeles plant on February 28th. It left the factory finished in green and came equipped with a four-speed transmission and 10-spoke aluminum wheels.
In May of 2003, a rotisserie restoration was completed. It is currently painted in Candy Apple Red and a double clear coat. It rides on its original-type Shelby wheels, correct SIMS oil pan, hollow letter valve covers with proper Buddy Bar casting and a 4:11 posi-traction rear end.
In 2009, this Shelby GT 350 was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was expected to sell for $90,000 - $120,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for $101,750 including buyer's premium.
