The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is rapidly approaching and along with it the corresponding Mecum auction. At this year's Mecum, as always, will be a slew of very interesting, cool, and distinctive cars.

Hitting the auction block this year, however, is something rather special indeed: a 1965 Ford Mustang GT350 that was owned and raced by none other than Sir Stirling Moss himself.

Under the hood of the prestigious GT350 is a 289-cubic-inch V8 producing 430 horsepower, which has been mated to a four-speed manual transmission.

Moss raced the original GT350 from 1991 through 1997 all over the globe from Europe to Targa Tasmania in Australia. It was raced as recently as last year, though, taking place position at the Rolex Monterey Historics event, according to a Motor Authority report.

Despite its racing pedigree, the car is said to be in top condition. Along with plenty of documentation, the GT350 will also include of photos of the car with Moss and also Carol Shelby as well as records of communications between Moss and Shelby.

The car isn't presently owned by Moss, however. A Colorado man who bought it at auction just last year presently owns the 'Stang. The car does come with a bill of sale signed by Moss.
