Following the successful AC Cobras, Shelby was
approached by Ford to develop a hot version of its new Mustang. For 1965
he developed the legendary GT350 and its lightweight racing derivative,
the GT350R. In 1967 the GT350 was supplemented by the GT500 with a 428ci
V8. After this the stock Mustang began to have more performance and Ford
made the cars more comfortable and heavier. New safety and exhaust
emissions regulations in 1968 did the rest. Despite Cobra badging and the
new King of the Road designation for the GT500KR, power and performance
were down. At the end of 1967 production was transferred to Michigan and a
year later Ford took it in-house. Production stopped in 1970 after only
10,825 Shelby Mustangs of all years had been built. This is a book of
contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data,
