Barn Find: 1966 Shelby GT350

TGR Staff

The guys over at had this story up about a bunch of old Fastback Mustang's sitting behind a lawnmower shop. One of the cars is a 1966 Shelby GT350.


The owner says this is a 1966 GT350 “carry over”. After some research, I found out that the first 252 GT350s of 1966 where actually built from 1965 mustangs. Story is a guy in the army bought it new in LA California, raced it, and then got papers to transfer to Hunter Army Base in Savannah, GA. The car has been raced, dragged, and was even a gasser at one time (yes solid axle front end too) then the current owner bought it in 1982 for $2,000. He bought it in the same condition it’s in today and still wants to restore it someday, so not for sale. Recently he lost it’s storage and here it sits outside.

Head over to to see more of the cars parked behind the local lawnmower shop, including a Mach 1, 67 Fastback, and lots of other desirable cars, as always the guy still has plans to restore them all.
