Photo from Chicago Auto Show
« on: February 14, 2019, 07:00:52 AM »
This recently popped up and is claimed to be of a 1965 Shelby GT350 at the Chicago Auto Show.      Anyone familiar with it?     
Thanks,

It looks real judging by hair styles and clothing worn that appears to match the times. Though I live in Chicagoland who knows if it is specifically the Chicago Auto Show.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

It's currently on eBay along with a few other pictures (no more Shelby's though), so I'm pretty sure it's real.

Brian,

5017 was purchased by a guy from New Holstein, WI of all places, in 1968!

And at that time I was a 13 year old living only three miles away in Kiel and building models of Shelbys! WHO KNEW??

 I had no idea the car was there until I moved to Green Bay in 1974 and met Jim Cowles (who later restored the car).

  I remember standing by that Ford GT.  Must have stood there gauking for five minutes.  Yeah, the GT 350 was cool, but...Ford GT!!  Lets see, 1965 minus 1952.  I was right on the edge of turning 13 then.

So I won the auction on eBay and received them today.  Thought you all might enjoy.  If anyone is interested, I can email a high res scan of either if you like.  No charge, lol.

Here are some high resolution scans:

It is 17. A high res would be most appreciated, it will go with my set of 2 originals. I am going to reach out to Su (no e) who took those to see if she still has the negative.
