A legendary pony car is coming to Barrett-Jackson's 2018 Scottsdale Auction as the first 1966 Shelby GT350 gets ready to make its way up that famous ramp. The car is a pre-production prototype and features the numbers-matching 289ci V8 engine with four-speed T10 manual transmission. Built to race in SCCA competitions, this GT350 was the primary Shelby American test car and features a unique vinyl roof treatment, a feature that never made it to the production car. It also features the optional factory-fitted Pony upholstery, aluminum inside rear-quarter window trim, and a medium blue vinyl top.
