1969 Ford Mustang Shelby Cobra GT350 with desirable 4-speed close ratio

This recklessly and ultra rare Shelby is a ‘one year only’ real collector!

This 1969 Shelby Cobra GT350 from the ‘Special Performance Program’ is the fourth (and last) model year of Shelby American’s partnership with Ford Motor Company to produce high-performance versions of the Mustang. While the Shelby Mustangs had initially been developed for racing, they had become more street-oriented over time.

The 1969 model year marked a significant redesign for the GT350, which included a new body style, updated suspension, more powerful engine options, a fiberglass hood, and fiberglass front fenders to reduce front end weight.

The 1969 Shelby GT350 featured a more aggressive front design with a new grille and bumper, as well as a new more prominent rear spoiler and taillights. The car featured a number of air scoops including three in the hood, one on each front fender, and one on each rear fender just behind the doors.

The suspension on the GT350 was updated over the standard Mustang with stiffer springs, larger sway bars, and adjustable shock absorbers, which improved handling and stability at high speeds.

The rear suspension included a Hotchkiss-drive, variable-rate, semi-elliptical leaf spring suspension, which helped keep the rear axle centered under hard cornering. The brakes were also improved, with power-assisted front discs and rear drums.

Under the hood, this 1969 Shelby GT350 has the 351 cubic inch Windsor V8 engine, similar to the engine used in the Mustang Boss 302.

It was upgraded with a high performance alloy intake manifold, finned aluminum valve covers, and a 470 CFM four-barrel Autolite carburetor and it made 290 bhp at 4,800 rpm with 385 lb ft of torque 3,400 rpm.

The engine is paired with a optional four-speed close ratio manual transmission.

Other notable features of the 1969 Shelby GT350 included power steering, power front disc brakes, and a deluxe interior with high-back bucket seats, woodgrain trim, and a center console with a clock and oil pressure gauge.

This 1969 Shelby GT350 is delivered in the special color Gulfstream Aqua Ford #3065-A (1 of 217) and has some rare options like the 4-speed close ration manual transmission. So how many with the same options and hand-shifted are in existence?? Go check the Marti report, original build sheets and other valuable documentation!!

What to expect from the Shelby?

The technical condition is good! The Shelby does not need anything. Over time some parts are renewed, but far out the most is all original. Surprisingly it’s a great driver, however it’s an old car which is never restored, or whatsoever. It’s a real time capsule, goosebumps allover!

The paint is faded, some dents and scratches. The interior looks great, it’s all there and in working order!

The Shelby had some rust in the lower torque-boxes, both rear innerfenders and a few other locations when we acquired it.

We cut out the inner fenders and torque-boxes and replaced it with brand new parts,and applied new sound dampening on the floor etc. etc.. All foto’s form the partial restoration are available on request.

Now in our shop in the Netherlands, could be delivered on Dutch registration or H-kennzeichen.
