Buy This Original Mustang GT350 R Before I Rob a Bank
Being auctioned off next month by RM, this 1965 Mustang GT350 R has a storied racing past. It won its division title in 1966, raced at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1967, and won its class at the 12 Hours of Sebring the same year.
While the number sounds ridiculously low, it actually coincides with the original amount of GT350Rs that Carroll Shelby originally built for Ford.
