Carroll Shelby was a successful car racer in the 1950s. In 1959, he won the 24-hour race at Le Mans in an Aston Martin. After retiring from racing for health reasons, he focussed on importing the AC Cobra into the US, which he equipped with Ford V8 engines. When Ford manager Lee Iacocca asked him to create a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang, the Shelby Mustang was born. In the first model years, 1965 to 1966, it was basically a street-legal race car: Standard Mustangs were given upgraded suspension and brakes, an increased power output, and body modifications including a lightweight fibreglass bonnet with scoops. The back seat was omitted. For the 1967 model year, Ford had redesigned the Mustang which thereby grew larger and heavier. Shelby made the best of the new challenge by inserting a big block V8 with 428 cui (7.0 litres) of displacement into what became the GT 500, although the GT 350 continued to be offered. With power steering and brakes, the cars lost some of their racing car traits, but were more comfortable to drive. Production was moved from Los Angeles to Ionia in 1967, with Ford effectively taking control. Shelby Mustangs were built until 1969, with some cars reserialized as 1970 models.
