• Actively campaigned in period by Yale Kneeland
• 1967 N.E. Division Production BP Championship
• Superb vintage racing candidate


Conceived from the outset to homologate Ford’s wildly successful Mustang for SCCA road-racing competition, Carroll Shelby’s original GT350 from 1965–1966 conferred an unbeatable, high-performance image on Ford’s trendsetting “ponycar.” On the track, the GT350 immediately proved itself a more than worthy competitor to Chevrolet’s Corvette, utterly dominating the opposition and securing three straight SCCA B-Production championships for Ford in 1965, 1966, and 1967.

Fully documented in the Shelby American Registry and accompanied by a copy of the original order form dated January 26, 1966, the GT350 offered here was delivered to Archway Motors in Baltimore, Maryland two weeks later on February 10. Eventually, the GT350 was purchased by first owner Yale Kneeland, of New York City, a recent Yale University graduate and racing friend of none other than Mark Donohue. Kneeland and Donohue, as fellow Ivy Leaguers, hit it off at an SCCA event at Lime Rock Park, precipitating Kneeland’s membership in the Dockery Ford racing team of Morristown, New Jersey as fifth driver, alongside Donahue, Bob Grossman, Malcolm Star, and Martin Krinner.

Following an accident in a GT350-R at Lime Rock, Kneeland acquired 6S0928 through Dockery, with which he continued his racing career. The car was heavily modified with such features as a full SCCA legal roll cage by Holman & Moody, flared wheel wells, deeper, offset rear American Mag wheels, and fully adjustable Koni shocks, to name just a few items. Kneeland continued to race 6S928 into the early-1970s, campaigning it up and down the east coastc from Bridgehampton and Watkins Glen to Lime Rock and Dover, securing the 1967 N.E. Division Production BP Championship.

Since 1999, the car has been in the care of the current owner, who began a full restoration in 2008 and has enjoyed the car enthusiastically, returning it to its 1967 Kneeland livery and fitted it with a correct B Production engine, featuring many original Shelby external and internal engine parts. It will surely prove to be a formidable vintage racing candidate for its next fortunate caretaker. As Motor Trend stated in one of its early road tests of the GT350, “We recommend it as a sure cure for all strains of boredom,” a statement that certainly applies to this example.

Opinions are welcome as this car doesn't fit any 1 category perfectly but is a unique combination.

There's a little incorrect information in the RM Ad and your listing concerning the race history of your Shelby GT350.....the Yale Kneeland GT350 (6s928) was not the 1967 Northeastern BP Champion....Bob Fryer in his Corvette was the 1967 Northeastern BP Champion.

Yale Kneeland was 7th overall in the Northeastern BP Division for 1967.  Kneeland was 9th overall in the Northeastern BP Division for 1968.  Kneeland was 6th overall in the Northeastern BP Division for 1969 and 12th overall in the Northeastern BP Division for 1970....this information was gathered from official SCCA National programs/magazines and such.
