The thoroughbred Pony Cars which were shipped to Shelby American from the Ford factory were 1965 Mustang K Code Fastback base cars. These were to be the famous Shelby Mustang GT350 race cars that would bring Shelby several SCCA championships. These K Code Mustang Fastbacks were to the Shelby legend what the COPO Camaros were to Yenko back in the day. This is where it all began.
