Late last year, Ford announced it would be releasing a Heritage Edition Package for both the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350 and the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350R models. This special edition package pays homage to 55 years of the Mustang fastback, which originally debuted as a 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 fastback coupe. Soon after its debut, Ken Miles made the Shelby a household name when he achieved victory behind the wheel at Le Mans on February 14, 1965.
The limited run of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby Heritage Edition models will feature a Wimbledon White color with a Guardsman Blue side and racing strips that ride over the top. According to Ford, this is a tip of the hat to the original 1965 GT350 competition model that was developed by Carroll Shelby.
“Looking back on it, what Ford and Carroll Shelby created back in the mid-’60s was so important to Mustang,” remarked Jim Owens, Ford Mustang marketing manager. “With their authentic exterior livery, unique appointments and performance Ken could have only dreamed of, the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R Heritage Edition Package vehicles are a meaningful tribute to the legacy of the Shelby brand.” Production has already begun on the 2020 Mustang Shelby Heritage Edition. You can order yours while they’re available at Shults Ford South.
