Looking for a mid60s Shelby Mustang GT350 that you can actually drive and enjoy? Here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, we have the closest thing, a factory Ford High Performance KCode 1966 Mustang Fastback that has been updated to a Shelby GT350 replica.
Assembled at Fords San Jose, California factory on March 24, 1966, this example left the factory finished in Wimbledon White and Black interior and was initially delivered to the Richmond, Virginia region.
Finished in factory correct Wimbledon White(code M) with blue racing stripes, this cars paint and trim is in overall excellent condition. The windshield and other windows are clear and intact. The headlights and other vehicle lights are hazefree and in one piece. This Shelby Pony rolls on Dunlop radials, size 215/60R14 at all four corners, and surrounding Magnum 500style wheels. The tires and wheels present well, with minimal scuffing or pitting.
All of its body panels are straight and solid, its bumpers look great especially the GT350 front bumper, the engine bay is quite tidy and the trunk is in good order, complete with a fullsized spare tire. The Shelby rearquarter windows replace the SilentFlo ventilation panels found on other regular fastback Mustangs.
Under the racing hood is a 289 CID HiPo V8 engine (code K) with a fourbarrel carburetor, Shelby intake manifold and dual exhausts. This engine is mated to a fourspeed manual transmission. We have confirmed that the block is no longer the original numbers matching unit and was replaced with a standard 289 block but fortunately the heads are still the original high output correct Kcode heads. This engine currently still has excellent high rpm performance and really makes this fastback feel like a real deal GT350
Open the drivers door and the black interior (code 26) greets you. The front buckets and rear demibuckets are in very good condition while the matching black carpet is in overall good order, as is the cars headliner. The black instrument panel is in one piece and looks good. A Cobra tachometer is perched atop the dash, canted slightly toward the driver. A threespoke rim blow wood steering wheel faces the driver and it is in excellent shape. The black inner door panels look very good, the mirror glass is in good order, as is the shifter. Rounding out the interior is an AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
A highperformance version of the 289 was introduced late in the 1963 model year as a special order for Ford Fairlanes. The engine is informally known as the HiPo or the Kcode' (after the engine letter used in theVINof cars so equipped). Starting in June 1964, it became an option for the Mustang.
Carroll Shelbyused the HiPo engine in modified form for the 19651967Shelby GT350, using special exhaust headers, an aluminum intake manifold and a larger carburetor. The Shelby engine also had a larger oil pan with baffles to reduce oil starvation in hard cornering. Shelby also replaced the internal front pressin oil gallery plugs with a screwin type plug to reduce chances of failure.
Competition to this Shelby in 1966 included Dodges Dart, Mercurys Cougar and Plymouths Barracuda.
