Scottsdale, AZ – An original 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 owned and vintage raced by the late Sir Stirling Moss will cross the auction block with no reserve at Barrett-Jackson’s inaugural Houston sale, Sept. 16-18.
The car began as a 1966 Shelby GT350 that was sold to an enthusiast in San Antonio. During a restoration, it was converted to competition “R” specs for vintage racing. Sir Stirling purchased it in 1992 after piloting a GT350 at the Monterey Historics. He first raced the GT350R in Targa, Tasmania, followed by a series of races and tours across North America and Europe, including at Silverstone in 1995 and 1996.
In 2007, with Sir Stirling in attendance, renowned racer Carroll Shelby drove the car onto the stage during Houston’s Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance and proclaimed it would be forever known as “The Moss Car.” It was signed by Sir Stirling inside the trunk and is listed in the official Shelby Registry.
