Sir Stirling Moss 1965 Shelby GT350 Race Car Crossing Mecum Block
While any classic Ford certainly has history, few are as historic as Sir Stirling Moss’s Mustang GT350. Ready to cross the auction block at Mecum during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, this 1965 GT350 was owned and raced by one of the greatest racing drivers ever, and prepared to Full R specs by Chris Lienbenberg.
Prop up that hood and take an eyeful of the 4.7-liter 289-cubic-inch V-8, capable of 430 horsepower. The powerful V-8 is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. This old-school Mustang GT350 was raced from 1991 through 1997 all over the world, including nine venues in Europe and Targa Tasmania, Australia. This same GT350 was recently raced during the 2012 Rolex Monterey Historics by Dominic Dobson, finishing in the top ten.
Despite coming from years of racing, this classic GT350 is in tip top shape. The ’65 GT350 comes with plenty of documentation including photos of the car with Moss and the late Carroll Shelby with recorded communications between the two. It’s a solid race car that comes with a rich racing history with quite the documentation to prove it.
This car won’t be presented by Moss, though. A Colorado man bought it last year at an auction and now it is back up for grabs. It may not be presented by the man himself, but it does include a bill of sale signed by Moss.
You can bet a bidding war will ensue for this fine piece of machinery during the auction August 15-17, 2013 and will cross the block that Saturday at 3:25pm.
Why not own a piece of history?
