1965 Shelby GT350 R

Gooding & Company, the internationally-celebrated auction house, announces five spectacular 1960s-era road and racing cars for its upcoming 2011 Scottsdale Auctions including a 1965 Shelby GT350 R. One of only 26 GT350 Rs ever made, this example (Chassis 5SFM5R108) “has one of the most significant race histories of its peers,” says Gooding & Company Specialist Jakob Greisen. Among these successes, it achieved a B-Production Championship winner title with Freddy van Beuren behind the wheel. On another occasion, renowned Mexican Grand Prix driver Pedro Rodriguez drove this car at the SCCA national meeting in Green Valley, where he won a B-Production race beating the factory prototype of Jerry Titus. This GT350 R returns to Gooding & Company’s auction stage for a second time, following its sale at the auction house’s 2006 Pebble Beach Auction. Its estimate is $650,000 – $850,000.
