Big fan of Carroll Shelby and Ford. My first car was a ’66 Mustang. I’ve owned the above ’68 GT 350 for 30+years. I put this text together expecting to produce a book on the Shelby Cars with Nicky Wright that did not happen. His publisher said there wasn’t a large enough market for a book on Shelby’s cars. Wonder if the publisher ever recognized his error?
I first put this page together about 30+ years ago when the internet was in its infancy. In 2020 I upgraded it to WordPress to make it more current. If you don’t know much about the Shelby Legend, the web page will give you a great introduction to the cars of Carroll Shelby. I am not affiliated with Shelby anything or Ford other than owning the cars and being a big fan. I am a long time member of SAAC.
I’d suggest you start with reading about Carroll Shelby. This is the mini version of his story written to show you why so many of us are huge fans and what the big deal was about him and his cars. Click on the Cobra to the right. –>
