Shelby American was founded by Carroll Shelby in 1962 to build and market high performance parts and modified cars for individuals.
The Ford Mustang platform was adapted by Shelby American to produce the Shelby GT350, and Shelby GT500.
The Cobra was campaigned successfully in the United States Road Racing Championship series and was the platform for the Shelby Daytona Coupe that competed successfully in the GT class of the 1964 and 1965 World Sportscar Championship seasons.
The Daytona Coupe finished first in class at the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans and achieved the first title for an American constructor in the World Sportscar Championship in 1965.
From 1965 to 1967, Shelby American also provided support to Ford's World Sportscar Championship effort with the Ford GT40's, clinching the championship with a 1-2-3 finish at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Shelby had success the following year, with wins at Sebring and Le Mans with the GT40 Mark IV.
