I lovingly refer to this car as a “unicorn Shelby." Heard of them, but never have seen one in person - until now!
This incredibly rare 1966 Shelby GT350 is one of only 252 "Carryover Cars" from 1965, and she crosses the auction block at Leake auction in Dallas next week.
As production of the 1965 Shelby GT-350s wound down, Shelby began work on the 1966 version. In order for them to continue their operations during the Ford Assembly plant shutdown, Shelby ordered 250 “K” Code 1965 Mustangs toward the end of the 1965 Mustang production run; this ensured that they would have cars available to “carry-over” the Shelby American plant until they received their initial shipment of 1966 Mustangs. Those 250 cars - plus the two 1966 prototypes - make a total of 252 cars that started life as 1965 Mustangs, but were converted into 1966 GT-350s. These cars are referred to as “carryover cars.” For more info, or to register to bid, visit https://www.leakecar.com.

I had the honor - and privilege - of being a guest speaker at the National Corvette Restorer’s Society annual nationwide conference.
Little known fact: There are now more big-block, high-horsepower 1967 Corvettes on the planet than were ever built. Counterfeits abound, as these cars are now valued higher than most people’s homes. .
The NCRS is IMPERATIVE in the collector car hobby; their objective is the restoration and preservation of these great cars for future generations. With their help, together we can combat fraudulent Corvettes, and protect the marque.
This is the roomful of beauties I had the pleasure of seeing.
