The 1965 Shelby GT350 That’s Been Driven For 43 Years

Steve Beck was 18 years old when he bought his GT350 for $900. That was back in 1975, and he’s been driving it ever since. He bought the car to impress an auto shop where he wished to work as a mechanic. He got the job, and is still sporting the legendary pony car.

Steve drove the GT350 every day for 21 years. And he had fun, (maybe too much?) He was jailed twice and ticketed even more over those years. In the nineties, this beauty got a few upgrades: bigger engine, better steering, and Koni shocks. Don’t worry, Beck has all of the original parts at home. Check out the Breakdown video below of Hagerty’s Flat Out video series, where they dig deep into the stories of the people behind the cars that tear up the track. Enjoy.
