  Carroll Shelby - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shelby went on to help design some of the most successful and beautiful cars of the era: the GT40, the Mustang-based Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500, and of course the 427 Shelby Cobra.
Shelby began working with Dodge at the request of Chrysler Corporation chairman, Lee Iacocca, who had previously been responsible for bringing Shelby to the Ford Mustang.
Shelby's Series 1 roadster used Oldsmobile's 4.0 L L47 Aurora V8, but was poorly supported by the ailing GM division.

 Shelby Cobra GT500
Carroll Shelby lends his support to SVT, adapting his earlier role as a senior advisor on the "Dream Team" that was assembled to develop and build the 2005 Ford GT.
The ultimate Shelby Mustang of the era was the GT500KR, or "King of the Road." Powered by a big block 428-cubic inch "Cobra Jet" V-8, the GT500KR was one of the most powerful, and memorable, muscle cars of that period.
Shelby accomplished this on his cars by opening up the grille area and redesigning the lower valance pan to maximize airflow into the radiator.

Shelby's fetch quite a bit of money, even in poor condition.
Nor the engine, it's gotta be shelby parts or similar, and that costs more money, which you don't have.

Californian racing-legend Caroll Shelby had already had incredible success with Ford's V8 engines in his Cobras when he offered the company to modify their Mustang to beat the then unbeatable Corvettes.
Ford happily accepted and the result was the Shelby Mustang GT350, which used the same engine as found in the Cobra 289.
Where the early Shelby Mustangs were very competition oriented, the 1967 and 1968 cars were more of a combination between performance and luxury.
