from william jeannes in Shelby forum ..... Shelby produced these cars first at the Shelby American facility in Venice, California, and later at a larger compound at the edge of the L.A. airport. He based his unnamed car on a stock Mustang fastback powered by the 289 High Performance V8, optional in certain Ford models. After several meetings failed to produce a name for the racing Mustang, Shelby named the car GT350-because 350 feet separated the Shelby American production shop from its race shop.
