There’s no mistaking the wicked sound or aggressive looks of the all-new Shelby® GT350R-C that Ford announced today would see its first official track time at Watkins Glen this weekend.
Ford Shelby GT350R-C, the competition version of the reincarnated icon, will compete in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, a showdown of the most popular – and accessible – performance cars from around the world.
The GT350R production car was unveiled in January, and is one of more than 12 new vehicles Ford Performance will bring to market through 2020. Since its introduction, sports car enthusiasts have eagerly awaited the debut of a racing version.

The Yenko Chevelle offered here is the recipient of a pain-staking restoration, and it has excellent provenance and a wonderful story. On June 24, 1969, Ms. Josephine Gresko drove her 1964 4-speed Impala into Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, looking for a trade-in on a new performance car. Assisted by salesman Howard Liverey, she purchased the COPO Yenko super car you see here. Painted Fathom Green with White SYC graphics and emblems, this is only a two-owner vehicle, having been traded into Bill Keith Auto Sales in Wexford, Pennsylvania, in 1976, where the current owner’s parents bought it for him as he was too young to sign the paperwork. This is a rare opportunity to become its third owner and next caretaker.
