The legend lives on in the 1965 Shelby GT350CR Classic mustang. It was conceived as a pure expression of American muscle, and while we’ve kept the chassis, we added the modern power and technology that’s available. It’s no clone, it’s something better. The heritage of Shelby (right down to its certification in the Shelby Worldwide Registry), the performance of now.

1965 Shelby GT350CR Mustang


We offer the 1965 Shelby GT350CR mustang as an extension of Carroll Shelby’s vision. Three V8 engine options that range from 490 horsepower to a tire-punishing 545 horsepower. The original 1960s body, with added agility from a coilover suspension package supported by tubular subframe connectors, power rack-and-pinion steering, thicker sway bars and oversized disc brakes. It looks like the past but forges a new future of Shelby performance.
