Looking back and fast cars-Pontiac Trans Am 1973-1974
The 1964 World’s Fair unveiling of Henry Ford II’s Shelby GT350 was met with awe and excitement. Every showroom across America unveiled this beauty on the same day as the World Fair. The Shelby GT350 was designed to be a sportier version of the existing Ford Mustangs.
The Shelby GT350 was not designed for a comfortable, laid back drive. These two-seaters were built to comply with the SCCA rules for competition. The powerful V8 engine would go from 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds. The manual 4-speed transmission, strong rear differentials, and race-bred transmissions added to the monstrous strength of the Shelby GT350.
This race car version of the Ford Mustang was the brainchild of Carroll Shelby. Carroll Shelby’s name was synonymous with big, beefy engine muscle cars. This collaboration was exactly what Ford needed to represent in the muscle car era. Ford rolled it’s 1,000,000 Shelby GT350 off the assembly line on March 2nd, 1966. This proved Ford’s Shelby GT 350’s were strong muscle cars that were here to compete.
The Shelby GT350 has become highly sought after since the Ford Motor Company has re-released the Shelby GT350 model. The Shelby GT350’s original list price was just $4,300 and recently a Shelby GT350 was sold for $500,000. This willingness to pay such a high dollar shows that this sweet machine still remains one of the top dream cars.
