Earlier this month we told you about a rare 1965 Shelby GT350R going up for auction,  the second time in less than six months that one of the rare vintage Mustang race cars has come up for sale. However, unlike the previous GT350R, which was sold by RM Auctions back in August in Monterey for an incredible $990,000,  this latest car failed to meet its reserve price.

RM’s annual classic car auction in Monterey, CA features some of the most desirable European sports cars in the world, but some vintage American Muscle will also up crossing the block. One that especially caught our eye is this 1965 Shelby GT350R race car, one of just 36 produced and one of the most valuable Shelby Mustangs of all time.
