Shelby Ford

April 1, 2011

Carroll Shelby will forever be linked to the Ford Motor Company. But, did you know he had his own Ford dealership in the 1960s? Shelby Ford was located on the south shore of Lake Tahoe in the state of California. The dealership was located near one of Carroll's homes. Any story about the dealership will probably be short and sweet, as he only sold two 1968 Shelbys. The white, fastback is # 4430.

The other car was # 3898. It was a red convertible GT 500KR. Most likely the one shown in the picture above.
