1964 Ford Cobra & 1966 Shelby GT 350 Coronado Speed Festival 9-20-2012
1964 ford Mustang cobra,
1966 Shelby GT 350, Carroll Hall Shelby (January 11, 1923 -- May 10, 2012)
was an American automotive designer, racing driver and entrepreneur. He was
best known for his involvement with the AC Cobra and later the Mustang-based performance cars for
Ford Motor Company known as Mustang Cobras which he had done
since 1965. His company, Shelby American Inc., founded in 1962, currently
sells modified Ford vehicles, as well as performance parts.
After retiring from driving in October 1959 for health reasons, he
opened a high-performance driving school and the Shelby-American company.
He obtained a license to import the AC Cobra (often known in the USA as the
Shelby Cobra,) a successful British Sports racing car manufactured by AC
Motors of England, which AC had designed at Shelby's request by fitting a
Ford V8 to their popular AC Ace sports car in place of its standard Ford
Zephyr engine. Shelby continued on to be influential with Ford manufactured
cars, including the Daytona Coupe, GT40, the Mustang-based Shelby GT350 and Shelby
GT500. After parting with Ford, Shelby moved on to help develop performance
cars with divisions of the two other Big 3 American companies, Dodge, and
Oldsmobile. The most memorable of these cars was the Dodge Viper.
Ford provided financial support for AC's Cobras from 1962 through 1965 and
provided financial support for the Ford GTs, first with John Wyer's Ford
Advanced Vehicles in 1963 and then with Shelby American from 1964 through
In the intervening years, Shelby had a series of ventures start and stop
relating to production of "completion" Cobras — cars that were allegedly
built using "left over" parts and frames. In the 1960s, the FIA required
entrants (Shelby, Ford, Ferrari, etc.) to produce at least 100 cars for
homologated classes of racing. Shelby simply ordered an insufficient number
of cars and skipped a large block of Vehicle Identification Numbers, to
create the illusion the company had imported large numbers of cars. Decades
later in the 1990s, Carroll alleged that he had found the "left over"
frames, and began selling cars which were supposedly finally "completed".
After it was discovered the cars were built from scratch in collaboration
with McCluskey, Ltd., they were re-termed "continuation" Cobras. The cars
are still built to this day, known as the current CSX4000 series of Cobras.
He was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1991,
and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 1992.
In 2003, Ford Motor Co. and Carroll Shelby mended ties and he became
technical advisor to the Ford GT project. In that same year, he formed
Carroll Shelby International, Inc., based in Nevada. Race 6 -- 1962-1966
