There is never enough horsepower....just not enough traction.

"Demand has far outpaced supply for the 36 original 1965 Shelby GT350s, with pristine examples bringing more than $400,000."

I think they need to check their auction selling prices a little closer. This price is closer to a non-R- model 65 GT350.  Aren't R-models closer to 7 figures?

Yes and Yes...

Hard to believe they are making them out of K-code Mustangs. That could drive up those prices a bit.

 Totally love the wheels, tires and IRS on the white car.

Not sure I see the upside of starting out with a K code tho.

And, although it's being fashioned by some of the original Venice crew, $250K is still a LOT of scratch.  These have been advertised for a while, and it looks like it's been slow going, even with a limited production. 

Just for fun, I called one of the numbers to find out more information on the cars (this was before the holidays)...and Jim Marietta answered the phone!  It was his cell number!  I have to say that I was a little bit star-struck.  However, Jim and I talked for the better part of 40 minutes about the cars, the process of obtaining one, etc.

If I had $250K sitting around with no where better to go, I would be all in!
Nothing beats a classic!

I would expect to see a couple for show at SAAC Sonoma.

I love the 65 GT350 and own #81. These cars are modern day classics that are super fun to drive and super collectible. I also love K code Mustangs as they can be had for $15,000 - $75,000- a tremendous savings. While all GT350s were born as K codes and then transformed, there were still a finite number. Much like the Cobras, the demand continues to grow and hence the replica and or tribute market has emerged. With the passing of Mr. Shelby, there is no wonder that there will be many new creations brought to market. Build all the GT350/ GT350R models you want, but call them something else.

That does look like a sweet ride but I think the price tag is a little steep.  They should use standard mustangs and outfit them to be the OVC creation IMHO.
