Thanks for the info
No it wasnt a GT350 just a Mustang coupe that was raced with some sponsorship from Shelby de Mexico
I have a couple of photos of it racing in the era just wondering if there are anymore out there
Cheers JCB

Jcbnova, are you referring to a 66 coupe/notchback that was raced from new 1966-73 under the Shelby banner by privateers. The car later returned to the States where it was campaigned and can be researched as the John Ruth car under the A/S and other notchback section on The unexpected Pony Site by Wolfgang Kohrn. Let me know if this is the car you are after as I know where it is.
