Ford has announced a new limited-edition Heritage Edition Package that is available on the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and the GT350R. The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition Package gets buyers a unique throwback racing livery applied to the car that uses Wimbledon White paint and Guardsman Blue side and over-the-top racing stripes.
Ford says that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition Package is a tribute to the styling of the iconic Carroll Shelby built 1965 fastback coupe that helped to establish the GT350 brand. The Heritage Edition Package adds $1,965 to the base price of the 2020 GT350 or 2020 GT350R cars. The livery is a tribute to the 1965 GT350 legendary racer Ken Miles drove in the car’s first win at Green Valley Raceway in 1965.
As for where the iconic racing colors originated, blue and white are the official international racing colors of the United States. Other touches that the Heritage Edition Package cars get include front and rear exterior badges that are painted in Guardsman Blue and a unique dash badge inside the car. GT350R models fitted with the package get all-black seats with red accent stitching.
The new Heritage Edition Package comes a year after the GT350 received numerous upgrades, including revised chassis geometry, revised antilock brakes, and revised MagneRide tuning for optimized aerodynamics. Dealers are taking orders for the Heritage Edition cars now with delivery slated to start this spring. The base 2020 GT350 starts at $60,440, with the base GT350R starting at $74,435.
