Ford Shelby – a David and Goliath story

Kiel 2

Carroll Shelby was a poultry farmer with a passion for high horse-power in small classic cars who started a partnership with Ford America that ensured the Mustang  name lived on.

    His namesake, the Shelby Super Snake, is up there for performance and classic lines and these qualities drew us to purchase this ultra low volume vehicle.
    We contacted Craig Dean from Mustang Motorsports in Melbourne and from there we were on our way to importing one of the last of its kind (before the new shape) American Mustangs.
    Ours started her life in Kentucky, USA. Destined for Orange, NSW, she was transported to the Carroll Shelby factory in Las Vegas and upgraded to what you see now, the 69th GT 500 to be transformed from less than 100 Super Snakes made for that year. Next she set off for California to be loaded into a cargo container (sharing with a Yellow Camaro, aka Bumble Bee) bound for Melbourne, Vic, and was converted to right hand drive and a few other modifications for Australian standards  🙂
