A 1966 Shelby GT350 untouched for 40 years will be offered at the Bonhams Greenwich 2016 auction, scheduled for Sunday, June 5th at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, Connecticut.
When new, this Shelby GT350 was used as a demonstration and competition car by the Ford dealership in Framingham, Massachusetts. After being sold and logging a total of just 55,000 miles, it was driven into storage in 1976 where it has remained unmolested to this day.
Presented in its “as found” state, Bonhams said the car is in “marvelous time-capsule condition” and includes its five original Cragar Shelby mag wheels as well as every service receipt and document from new, including the bill of sale, original handbook and Shelby literature.
As a completely original, low-mileage example possessing all its original documentation, the Shelby represents a great opportunity for enthusiasts. Another interesting item is that this car is not found on the Shelby America register since the owner never told anyone about it.
Just one owner from new, the muscle car is one of a small number of “carry over” cars from 1965/66 that incorporate all the performance parts of a 1965 model but with the new styling treatment of the 1966 model. Its 1965 VIN means it’s eligible for 1965 and earlier racing events.
Bonhams’ auction will be held Sunday, June 5th at the waterfront Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, Connecticut. Hosted in conjunction with the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, Bonhams’ 9th annual sale takes place only 30 miles from New York City.
