1970 was the last year of the first generation of Carroll Shelby’s legendary GT, hich bowed out in high style and with Ford’s most powerful regular production engine under the hood. Both the GT350 and GT500 bore unique body work that was a complete departure from earlier models. Fiberglass was used in the front fenders and hood, hich featured no fewer than five NACA ducts for cooling and intake. The front and rear brakes were fed by fender mounted scoops, nd the rear of the car used a fiberglass deck lid and extensions to form a rear spoiler. 1965 Thunderbird tail lights filled the rear valence, eneath which was a unique center-mounted aluminum exhaust bezel. As in recent past years, he Mustang’s Deluxe Interior Group was standard and included Shelby Cobra emblems, onsole mounted Stewart Warner oil and amp gauges, og light switches, ull instrumentation and a roll bar with inertia reel safety belts.
