Shelby Ford Mustang GT350 1966 (1965) #SFM6S052
This is one of the 252 highly desirable Shelby "Carry over" cars built in advance in 1965 by Shelby American for the 1966 year models so officially a 1966 model but race homologanated as a 1965 car.
These Carry over models were made mechanically as a 1965 GT350 model and aesthetically as a 1966 model. The car has Shelby VIN number #SFM6S052 so it's the early 52nd car of the 252 1966 cars made in 1965.
The car was fully rebuilt between 2002-2004.
Work done by Lars-Göran Andersson and Hans-Erik Johansson. The car was completely disassembled, stripped of paint, and rebuilt with great care to detail and weight.

Two aluminium casings for fuel tanks complete with pump-over feature to enable endurance racing have been installed.

#SFM6S052 began its life in the United States as a road car and had 7 owners before it began its racing history in the 1980’s, the first to race it was Shelby Mustang enthusiast Richard Leuchner.
The well known Dutch race car driver, John Hugenholtz purchased the car in 1986 and had it converted for vintage racing by renowned race car builders Ed Swart and Dave Drall. Hugenholtz raced the car at Palm Springs 11/90 and at Laguna Seca. Robert Manschot purchased the car in 1996 and raced it in Tour de France and Tour Auto (I've found that Manschot raced in both of these but I am not sure if Tour the France and Tour Auto is the same race?) . Owned by historic race driver and car collector Frank Sytner until bought by Lars-Göran Andersson, who purchased it through the famous racecar mechanic Simon Hadfield in 2004.
It has since been been carefully worked on to bring it back up to full FIA homologation spec and then raced in historic racing on Scandinavian Raceway Anderstorp, Knutstorp Ring, Mantorp Ring, Vålerbanen, Karlskoga Raceway, Kinnekulle Ring, Gellerasen and some others
