1966 shelby mustang gt350 racer
• Actively campaigned in period by Yale Kneeland
• Superb vintage racing candidate
Fully documented in the Shelby American Registry and accompanied by a copy of the original order form dated January 26, 1966, the GT350 offered here was delivered to Archway Motors in Baltimore, Maryland two weeks later on February 10. Eventually, the GT350 was purchased by first owner Yale Kneeland, of New York City, a recent Yale University graduate and racing friend of none other than Mark Donohue. Kneeland and Donohue, as fellow Ivy Leaguers, hit it off at an SCCA event at Lime Rock Park, precipitating Kneeland’s membership in the Dockery Ford racing team of Morristown, New Jersey as fifth driver, alongside Donahue, Bob Grossman, Malcolm Star, and Martin Krinner.
Following an accident in a GT350-R at Lime Rock, Kneeland acquired 6S0928 through Dockery, with which he continued his racing career. The car was heavily modified with such features as a full SCCA legal roll cage by Holman & Moody, flared wheel wells, deeper, offset rear American Mag wheels, and fully adjustable Koni shocks, to name just a few items. Kneeland continued to race 6S928 into the early-1970s, campaigning it up and down the east coastc from Bridgehampton and Watkins Glen to Lime Rock and Dover.
Since 1999, the car has been in the care of the current owner, who enthusiastically, returned it to its 1967 Kneeland livery and fitted it with a correct B Production engine, featuring many original Shelby external and internal engine parts. It will surely prove to be a formidable vintage racing candidate for its next fortunate caretaker.
