SHELBY SIDESCOOPS

Mustang Monthly - - BEYOND THE BASICS -

I’m build­ing a 1965 Shelby G.T. 350 trib­ute car. Did all 1965 G.T. 350s come with the scoops on the quar­ter-pan­els? What color should the paint be in­side them? Body color on the quar­ter-panel and the back­side of the scoop? Or some­thing else? Thanks. Bruce Faucet Via the In­ter­net

None of the 1965 Shel­bys came with the sidescoops, the scoops were in­tro­duced on the 1966 G.T. 350. In 1966, all but the dark col­ors had the in­side painted semi-gloss black.

As seen in this black-and-white image from Mo­tor Trend’s 1966 G.T. 350 test­drive, the scoop area is in­deed blacked out on the sidescoops. Since you’re build­ing a ’65 trib­ute you would not have the scoops in­stalled at all to be cor­rect, but if you’re adding them any­way it is best to black them out like shown.
