No don't believe so. Since most were filmed outside of the US and often was influenced by sponsors IMHO would not make sense to include a Shelby as any of the main cars

No 007 films did not use any  Shelby GT350.

But these movies did use real vintage Shelbys;

1968 Shelby GT500, Thomas Crown Affair

In this remake of the Steve McQueen classic, billionaire Thomas Crown, played by Pierce Brosnan, drives a one-off, off-road prepped 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible complete with roll bar, raised suspension, and knobby tires. It isn’t in the movie long, but it’s unforgettable. Today a faithful replica owned by reality TV star Richard Rawlings is often seen on his hit show Fast n’ Loud.

1966 Shelby GT350H, Grand Prix

Filmed throughout Europe with real F1 cars on real race tracks, including Monaco and the high banks of Monza, Grand Prix remains the prototypical racing movie. American F1 driver Pete Aron, played by car enthusiast and real-life racer James Garner, drives a black and gold 1966 Shelby GT350H Mustang hard when not on the track. A similar car—a clone—appears in the Tom Cruise remake of The War of the Words from 2005.

Thanks for the response...
I'm a big 007 fan, and also Shelby fan, and thought the same.
...But for those with a registry, check out the history of 6S341, which has always intrigued me....

Thanks, but still wondering about that part of the history.  Howard wasn't sure either.  Maybe a part of a movie that saw the editing room floor...?
