Ford recently announced they would be creating a limited range of 2015 Ford Shelby GT350 and GT350Rs in honor of the model’s 50th Anniversary. The GT350 will come with a special VIN and the GT350R will be built as a tribute to the very first GT350.
The iconic nameplate stunned the world when it first arrived in 1965. The Shelby GT350 was king of the track as it won the Sports Car Club of America’s B Production national championship from ’65-’67. The race-ready machine is now celebrating its 50th Anniversary in style with limited edition models.
The anniversary models will be in short supply. There will only be 100 Shelby GT350s built; 50 will come with a special Technology Package and the other 50 will be equipped with a performance Track Package. There will also only be 37 GT350R editions built.
Henry Ford III, Ford Performance Marketing Manager said, “Fans of the Shelby brand are among the most passionate in the automotive industry. To honor the passion of our fans for Shelby GT350’s 50th anniversary, a limited run of GT350 models will be built in 2015; these cars will be highly coveted by both Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts alike.”
