Shelby Mustang GT350 Debut History

Shelby Mustang GT350 Debut History
BRIGHTON, Mich.- This week in classic American muscle car history, we celebrate the Shelby Mustang GT350 Debut. On January 271965, Shelby American introduced the first GT350 Mustang at a press event in Riverside, California. It was on that day that Shelby started a long history of high-performance, souped-up Ford Mustang madness. Carroll Shelby made the ultimate pony car history but putting bigger engines into smaller, lightweight cars.

Beginning its life as a stock Mustang, the future American classic received upgraded modifications like high-riser manifolds, larger rear drum brakes, and swapped Ford Falcon rear axles for heavy-duty Ford Galaxie rear axles at Shelby American in Venice, CA. Most importantly, the 1965 Shelby received a bigger, 4.7L V8 engine that produced an impressive 306 hp! The Shelby Mustang GT350, a performance variant of the stock Ford Mustang, offered incredibly more power and race-car tuning than any stock Mustang could offer.

Today, the Shelby Mustang continues to make fans drool and we continue to celebrate the 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 Debut History!
