Those of us who grew up in the 60s remember the original muscle car era and ads for the Shelby GT 350 were just part of the landscape. Road racing performance for $4547.00. Quite a deal.

Precise control takes on a new meaning behind the wheel of Shelby American's new Mustang GT-35O! The complete suspension system has been re-designed to comply with a computer plotted geometry that allows the GT-350 to stick like nothing you've ever driven. Reflex quick steering, Koni shocks, and Goodyear 130 mph "Blue Dots" let you pick your exact line... and stick to it! No use mentioning the GT-350's 306 hp Cobra hi-riser 289 or the competition proven disc brakes until you've actually sampled a few corners at speed. The most complex blind apex closing radius bend becomes the expert driver's challenge instead of an exercise in frustration. When you go down to test the GT-350, ask the salesman to bring your present car along for comparison... you won't believe it! Suggested list price $4547.00
