1965 Shelby GT350 Barn Find

This 1965 Shelby GT350 might technically not be one of the nicest Mustangs at Barrett-Jackson this year, but it might just be the most interesting. The car was recently found sitting dormant in a barn with just 44,000 miles and still contains all of its original parts including the sheet metal and glass. The current owner has refreshed it somewhat to make it drivable, and we hope the next owner keeps it this way as well.

Apparently there were several others at Barrett-Jackson (with considerable more money) who were also very intrigued by the car, as it reached a final bid of $350,000, making the final selling price $385,000.

Summary: An amazing barn find that was owned by its original owner until 2009. It has the numbers matching engine and drivetrain, original paint and interior with 44,000 original miles. The engine and transmission have been freshened and the car is very drivable.
