Carroll Shelby Goes Racing
Ford provided Carroll Shelby with an engine for his start up sports car company and AC supplied the bodies. Shelby hired a bunch of hot rod builders in California and they created the Cobra. Soon Ford turned to Shelby to beef up the Mustang and turn it into a Corvette beater. The GT 350 was born. But there was more. Henry Ford II had tried to buy Ferrari and was spurned. Not one who was used to losing he decided to beat Enzo Ferrari on the track. After Ford's first forays stalled they turned to Shelby to beef up the GT 40s and take on Ferrari. Pete Brock, Ken Miles and Dan Gurney put the cars through their paces. CO30





Carroll Shelby In His Own Words
I interviewed Carroll Shelby several times and would cut up the interview in short bits for this, that or another project. I decided it would be interesting to hear him as he actually spoke and told stories. He was a one of kind. A true legend. And I miss him.
