Launched in 1964, the Ford Mustang was a trend setter. Relatively compact, the car was aimed at young people for its affordability and sporty nature. The product was so successful it was the most successful vehicle launch since the 1927 Model A and sold a million cars in less than two years.  It even created a class all its own, called the “pony” car.

Of course, more is always better and by mid-1964 Lee Iaccoca sought out Carroll Shelby to create a racing version of the Mustang. Shelby had only months to build a better handling, harder-hitting powerhouse if it was to compete as a B Production SCCA race car. For extra drama, qualifying for the SCCA class required production of no less than 100 street-legal examples.

Engineered by Chuck Cantwell, Ken Miles helmed the mechanical development with designer Peter Brock on the graphics. They were completed just in time for the 1965 season. With a 289 cubic inch V8 engine delivering 306 horsepower, the race car performed like a champ and won the B Production National Championships in 1965 and 1966. In fact, they beat Shelby’s own Cobras! And the streetcar? They made over 2,300 in those two years.

Now AFX brings the Shelby Mustang to life with its white body donning original Guardsman Blue metallic race stripes and chrome wheels.
