1965 Shelby GT350 R / Bring a Trailer

This might just be the most iconic car that I have had the pleasure of shooting. It quite literally defined an era of automobiles as well as launched, perhaps, one of the most recognizable blue-collar sports cars of all time. The racing pedigree that this car stands for is second to none. The earth-shattering sound it produces is reminiscent of the by-gone era in which safety was second. This is a real driver’s car and has been currently doing that every so often in the small town of Mansfield, Texas. This car toured the country with the 1965 Cobra Caravan, a cross-country promotional tour organized by Shelby. The GT350R, a 427 Cobra, a GT40, and a Cobra Daytona Coupe were hauled around in a 42-foot trailer, making stops at Shelby dealers to promote sales. I cannot say enough great things about this car, the shoot and its fantastic owner, Paul. It is sessions like this one that make me truly grateful to do what I do for Bring A Trailer.
