GEORGIA

Georgia is a southeastern U.S. state whose terrain spans coastal beaches, farmland and mountains. Capital city Atlanta is home of the Georgia Aquarium and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. The city of Savannah is famed for its 18th- and 19th-century architecture and leafy public squares. Augusta hosts the Masters golf tournament.

AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY

The Good Roads Movement (1880s-1920s) spurred changes in Georgia. In 1904 only 4 percent of public roadways were classified as improved. Dirt roads had long plagued farmers in their attempts to move crops to markets. By 1908, when northern motorists began to trickle to the South, a movement for better roads evolved into a campaign to create interstate tourist highways. Construction of the National and Capital highways finally connected Georgia with major northeastern cities and the Dixie Highway connected Georgia to the Midwest.

The Shelby Built for Ken Miles – That He Never Got to drive

The Shelby Built for Ken Miles – That He Never Got to drive

ONE OF THE RAREST SHELBY MUSTANGS EVER BUILT!

See it at Owls Head Transportation Museum

This iconic 1966 Shelby Group II Mustang #12 is one of the rarest Shelby Mustangs ever built and is fully documented in the SAAC Shelby Registry which includes its historic SCCA and Trans-Am racing pedigree. It was one of only sixteen 1966 Shelby Group II Mustangs built to R-model specifications to compete in the SCCA and Trans-Am A/Sedan class. It was one of only seven that actually competed. As documented it was originally built for the famous Shelby American driver Ken Miles, who was killed testing A J-car at Riverside before he could drive it.

After the tragic death of Ken Miles, it was offered to John McComb by automotive design engineer Chuck Cantwell of Carroll Shelby’s legendary racing shop. Chuck was the Shelby project engineer for the GT350. It was invoiced on August 24th, 1966 to Turner Ford located in Hutchinson, KS, and purchased by John McComb who lived in Hutchinson, KS. John McComb and this Shelby Mustang helped Ford claim The Trans-American Sedan Championship for 1966. This Shelby Mustang participated in over 30 documented races including SCCA, Trans-Am, ARRC, and 24 Hours of Daytona.

Some notable races in 1966 included 1st Place at Pan-American Trans-Am in Green Valley, TX, and 1st Place at Continental Divide SCCA National. It was featured on the cover and in Sports Car Graphic December 1966 magazine.

It was also featured in Sports Car Graphic June 1967 magazine and Motor Trend World Automotive Yearbook for 1967. It was purchased in 1967 by Keith Thomas. It won 1st Place at SCCA National in Wichita, KS in 1968 where it set a A/Sedan lap record and tied A/Production Corvette of Don Yenko for the 2nd fastest lap ever run at Lake Afton. It was raced consistently in 1969 but had a limited race schedule between 1971 and 1973.

 

Shelby Built for Ken Miles

 

The car has been signed by Carroll Shelby, John McComb, Chuck Cantwell, and Terry Doty. Since the completion of its restoration, the car has been handled with white gloves and stored in a climate-controlled facility.

John McComb and his wife Vici McComb were reunited with the car in June of 2022. Many items will be included with the car such as restoration photos, SAAC Shelby 1965-1966-1967 4th Edition book signed by John McComb, interview transcript with John McComb which he signed, photos of reunion with John and Vici McComb, miscellaneous books signed by John McComb, and miscellaneous articles. John McComb donated many items surrounding his career and this car to the Owls Head Transportation Museum which can be viewed in person but isn’t included with the sale.

You can see all the memorabilia and this beautiful 1966 Shelby Mustang on display at Owls Head Transportation Museum until the car is auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the museum.
