Unique Cleveland-powered Shelby Going Up for Auction
Built along with two other similar test vehicles just before Shelby ended Mustang production in 1970, this white GT350 is the only prototype that hasn’t been scrapped. Besides the unique mill, the Shelby GT350 also sports an upscale Mercury Cougar XR-7 interior. The musclecar also boasts air conditioning, power steering and an automatic transmission.
Ford introduced the high-performance Cleveland 351 V8 engine in 1969 to replace the 351 Windsor. The powerplant was ultimately discontinued in 1974, while the Windson lasted through the late 1990s.
