This is the AFX Shelby GT350R 1965 Donohue White Blue Mega G+ HO Slot Car.

Mark Donohue, a multi-talented racer and degreed engineer, amassed a remarkable record of championships, victories, and innovative cars developed across 8 different racing classes.

But it was his 1965 race wins and SCCA Divisional Championship in a Shelby GT350R that helped bring him to the attention of a certain Roger Penske.  This began a racing partnership that would yield legendary race wins and success for many years.

The GT350 “R” model was rare indeed with only 37 ever made specifically for competitive use under SCCA rules. The car made an excellent impression on racing circuits, becoming the B-Production divisional champion 3 years in a row.

In typical AFX fashion, the HO Scale version of this car comes fully decked out with even the smallest details like the racing oil cooler under the front grill and the tapered white stripes over the beautiful Guardsman blue body.  Even the 5 spoke wheels are the style used when the car was raced.
