Ford Pays Homage to the 1965 Shelby GT350

On February 14, 1965, Ken Miles, Ford race car driver and engineer, turned heads on the track with the 1965 Mustang Shelby GT350 fastback coupe where he made the car an instant legend driving it to victory at Green Valley Raceway in Texas. 55 Years later, Ford’s celebrating with a new limited-edition 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition Package.

The limited edition Heritage Edition Mustang Shelby GT350 will be finished in the classic Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue side and over-the-top race stripes. This not only serves as a nod to the 1965 model developed by Carroll Shelby, but also falls in line with the blue and white racing colors the United States has worn as its international racing colors since the 1950s. Other marks of the Heritage Edition cues include front and rear exterior badges finished in Guardsman Blue and a unique dash badge inside the vehicle.

“Looking back on it, what Ford and Carroll Shelby created back in the mid-’60s was so important to Mustang,” said Jim Owens, Ford Mustang marketing manager. “With their authentic exterior livery, unique appointments and performance Ken could have only dreamed of, the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R Heritage Edition Package vehicles are a meaningful tribute to the legacy of the Shelby brand.”

The Heritage Edition Package will include the host of upgrades the Shelby GT350 has received including revised front chassis geometry for improved steering and revised antilock braking and MagneRide tuning. The GT350R model will also feature all black seats with accent red stitching.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350 has a starting MSRP of $60,440, plus taxes, title, delivery and license fees. The GT350R has a starting MSRP of $73,435, plus taxes, title, deliver and license fees. The Heritage Edition Package is available for an addition $1,965. Want to pre-order your limited edition 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350? Stop by Sloan Ford in Exton today and we’ll take your order!
