1965 Shelby GT350 Barn Find

The annual Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, AZ always has an amazing selection of cars up for grabs, and it looks like this year will be no different. One vehicle we’re keeping our eye on is this 1965 Shelby GT350 “barn find” that was with its original owner until 2009. The Shelby is matching numbers and all original including the sheet metal, paint and interior, and the odometer reads only 44,000 miles. The current owners have decided to keep the car in its current condition rather than restore it, and have only freshened up the engine and transmission to make it drivable. The car will also come with its original sales agreement from Galpin Ford, its California pink slip and the original license plates. You can see more details and photos of the car below.
