This is funny

They used to actually road race bugs back in the day. I think some were even raced in TA in the 2.5 and under class.

Yes, here is one from an 'actual race'.

6R07mi was looking to id a '65 GT350 in this thread "Trying to ID 65 GT350 CA black plate NJR 785" didn't want to side track that thread, looking through my files I came across this one, looks to be a '65,  10spokes,   flares front & rear,   maybe R model front valance ? pic is dated '74. looking at the vegetation, maybe SW,  Any ideas ?

Mike

Mike, 
  Just looking at this photo, is that a rocker molding? If it is then would that suggest this may be a "shelby-ized" regular mustang?
it appears to have later body colored "racing mirrors" aka 69 / 70, so beside the non-original GT350 stripe, 66 side scoops on a 65 body, I don't see any other SAI GT350 features.

not conclusive but more likely not an authentic GT350??

thanks

Jim, thanks for you reply to my post, in my op with photo I did say looks to be a '65 GT350, but thanks to the eagle eyes of people

 like your self, those little details that can give a more definitive answer are pointed out, good catch on the side scoop, and that

moulding, how could I  have missed that  ::)  maybe some here knows the car, it was a long time ago that I found that image.

In  your thread on the '65 with flared rear fenders, we might be getting some idea which car it is.

Mike
