1965 GT350 Cars and Parts For Sale / Wanted Ads:    (Updated: 11/13/13)

I am not sure how this area of this web site is going to work out, so we will see how it goes. The ads below will be restricted only to 1965 GT350's or 1965 Mustang related parts that may be used for a GT350 restoration. Only people that have a 1965 GT350 will be able to post their wanted ads. I initially wanted to set up this part of the web site for the parts wanted to bring 5S003 back to its original configuration. In the spirit of helping other 1965 GT350 owners look for the parts they need, it will be open to the other owners. Please, no part(s)-hoarding, let the people who need the part(s) be allowed to get the ones they need for their car. If you have a "For Sale" or "Wanted" ad, feel free to send it to me. Thanks, Mark Hovander

It does not have to be perfect, but the better the car the more I will like it! Will pay a finder's fee also. Want to make a step up from my 1966 Mustang GT!

WANTED: 1965 GT350

I've been thinking about diving into another restoration . Anybody know where there's a '65 GT350 that's in need of a restoration? I'd be interested in anything dead or alive as long as serial numbers are intact. Any leads would be appreciated...

Thanks, Wayne

WANTED: For 5S078

OK you guys, this 1965 GT350 owner has been looking everywhere and calling everyone for all those ORIGINAL "little" parts that are missing from my car. For all you skeptics, yes I do need them and no, I am not selling the car. 078 has been with me for 27 years! I'll keep it for 27 more, if I am still above ground.

While I wasn't there in 1964 / 65 as they built 078 in Venice, CA (I went by going to the beach) these parts were probably on the car when them left Shelby American. Remember, we are talking early 1965 GT350's and should never say "never". And I am the first one to state that I doubt that this is one of special cars, that you always hear about at a swap meet from a "Shelby" expert or read about on EBay. You know the story, "Shelby personally saw it in 1964 and gave his OK to make one this way" or "Chuck Cantwell wanted a special prototype to see what it looked like or Pete Brock couldn't make up his mind so they made one this way until he changed his mind."

So please help me and go up to the attic or for you southern guys, basement and look into those old boxes for this stuff. Hey, no telling what you may find. Ever seen "Antique Road Show"? Saw someone with an old picture found in the attic that was worth $25,000! Could be YOU! So don't wait.

So here it is in no particular order or price:

  The Original WHAT list The WHY list
16" steering wheel Cobra logo button. Missing when I bought the car. The seller said he last saw it when his son had drilled ¼" holes in the Cobra eyes and cut a slot in the tail. It seems that his son made a nice belt buckle out of it. Also, no success in finding a friendly 427 Cobra owner to part with a spare.
Dash mounted horn switch, long plastic toggle with metal ring. In 1969, the original owner broke off the factory one trying to hang his all brass peace symbol on it. Now, I'll never have peace of mind until I find another one.
Ray Brown seatbelt. Winged or ear type small chrome buckle. Have only 1. "Just 1". I know someone has my other 1 and is waiting to retire on it. Using an army surplus replacement dyed black just doesn't look right. Besides, it's missing those wonderful little winged buckles. Years of looking have found lots of pairs, but no one wants to sell "Just 1".
Negative black battery cable for trunk mounted battery. Has white "FORD-SX" lettering and stars. I am still kicking myself for taking off the original in 1980 and using it, because it fit, to start the ex-girlfriends 1977 Maverick. When she left, so went the cable. Thankfully the new girlfriend drives an import.
Any NOS interior or wiring parts. Why not!

Thanks in advance for any replies or contacts,
a 1965 GT350 owner

-Tri-Y Headers - as close to NOS as you can get. A little background history on our headers. We tried all the repo headers out there, you know, the ones that go for between $99 and $179. Talk about garbage.This was the type of part that gave reproduction parts the typical bad rap or what Bob Perkins calls Gyppo parts . I finally got fed up and took my original set of headers off my 65 GT350 and had a real custom old school header fabricator make them like they did in 1965. They made a steel fixture to make sure each set is replicated the same way. I had the flanges made to the correct thickness and beveled edge and also had the 3 bolt collector flanges made to the correct shape. The tubes are mandrel bent to original specs using the same gauge steel and miter cut to the original shape to weld . They are welded the same way they did it on the original set. Once completed on the jig, each bolt hole is clearanced to make sure you can use a 6 point box wrench on each header bolt. Lastly they are shot blasted to get rid of any imperfections and jet coated a semi gloss satin finished. These are extremely labor intensive parts to make with about 2 days labor invested in each set. The guy that makes them can only supply about 15 sets a year as they are such a small order and he makes them when he has time. They trickle in about 2 sets every other month so It's rare when I have an extra set in stock. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS GIVE US A CALL, 920-434-3645
