This Pony’s Goin’ to the Glue Factory: Last Ride for Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
It may not feel like it, but the end of 2020 is in sight, and with it will come the end of something else: the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R. Ford has announced that it will be making its last GT350 models sometime this fall now that the Mustang Shelby GT500 is in full swing and lighting up tracks and highways across the country.

In a last hurrah for the GT350, Ford created a Heritage Edition Package, adding some iconic styling features that harken back to the original GT350s of the 1960s. The package is available on both the GT350 and GT350R, and brings classic Wimbledon White paint with Guardsman Blue side and over-the-top racing stripes. A GT350 script appears on the lower flanks, as well. The whole look is reminiscent of the 1965 fastback coupe created by the legendary Carroll Shelby for Ford. Inside, a special plaque adorns the dashboard, but only the GT350R gets black seats with red stitching.
The package is available now, adding $1,965 for the paint and stripes to the cost of either model. That’ll be on top of the $61,635 (including destination charge) starting price for a 2020 Shelby GT350 or $74,630 for a truly track-ready Shelby GT350R. Better put that order in soon, however, as the GT350 isn’t going to be around much longer. Don’t fret if you miss your window, though: Ford promises new and interesting variants of the Mustang in coming years.
