1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 / SFM 5S490 Chassis Information

Coupe
Chassis Num: SFM 5S490
Sold for $451,000 at 2017 RM Sothebys.
Chassis number SFM 5S490 was completed by Shelby American on June 29th of 1965 and was assigned as a company car to Jack Khoury. It was subsequently shipped through Shelby's Hi-Performance Motors of El Segundo, California, to Kansas City dealer Broadway Motors as their demonstrator. It then went to Horn-Williams Motor Company of Dallas, also as a demonstration model. By this point, it had been equipped with a radio.

Its first private owner was an Army officer. Ownership then passed to Harry M. Strawser Jr., of Arkansas, and in 1969 to Ray Kitten. It is believed to have been exhibited at the New York World's Fair of 1964, where the Army officer purportedly bought the car.

After further Arkansas history, the car was purchased by Bob Gaines in 1991, returning it to Kansas City. The next owner was Len Perham of Saratoga, CA. Colin Comer acquired it in 2006, in whose ownership it won the Chairman's Award in Division 3 Concours at SAAC-31 in Virginia that year. It was then sold to Howard Cox of Southlake, Texas, then passed in 2008 to Chad Odom, before joining its current owner's collection.

The car has at least 80 percent of its factory Wimbledon White paint, and it has its original engine and properly date-coded T10 aluminum transmission, as well as the original master cylinder, valve covers, intake manifold, carburetor, fan, and radiator. Correct tires are mounted on the 15-inch Cragar wheels. The seats were re-upholstered several years ago, and the rear package tray is a reproduction.
