LOOKING FOR INFO ON 1965 SHELBY GT350 SFMS551
« on: November 17, 2022, 01:14:51 PM »
Hope all is well as I am new to this registry. Longtime fan and finally was able to acquire one of my own. I have been trying to find out some history on this vehicle and willing to purchase any documentation that may be available. Shelby heritage directed me to the forum for information. The car is currently Wimbledon white with guardsman stripes. Will be verifying for accuracy as I gather info. I appreciate in advance any information that can provided. Thanks Ron

Was in the Philippines for a while, then in Michigan. Did you not check with the 1965 Shelby registrar before you purchased it? That would be the first place to start at this point in time.

where would I go for that as i am having difficult time finding anything...I purchased the car from a family friend so authenticity was not a necessarily a concern. Thats great news by the way.

That top Photo looks like it was taken at Silver Springs Florida at the NPD Show.
