Las Vegas, NV
Sometimes we get a guy's garage that is way over the top. This guy is Carroll Shelby and his garage is the Shelby Automobile manufacturing floor in Las Vegas. It opened in 1998 as Shelby American and has since been building anniversary 427 S/C Cobras, Series 1s, and even some cool prototype stuff shown here. Check out more of his sheetmetal at shelbyautos.com.
A. These are the original body bucks for the re-created fiberglass and carbon-fiber bodies.
B. In addition to big-blocks, you can also get the Cobra with an aluminum body. If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
C. For a while, Shelby experimented with trucks. This is an experimental Expedition.
D. The '99 Shelby Series 1 EPA compliance vehicle and original mock-up are still in the shop along with the demo chassis showing the drivetrain and frame.
E. These are assembled Series 1s awaiting shipping to customers.
F. When you buy your new Series 1 and break something, Shelby has a warranty repair department in-house.
G. Also in the shop is the first new aluminum-bodied Shelby/AC 427 S/C Cobra. Soon to be a collectible, like tomorrow.
H. Since you are already daydreaming, here is an original '64 Cobra factory racer and a '65 GT350 autographed by all the original Shelby mechanics and employees.
I. Carroll parks his Series 1 golf cart next to production-car number one. We're not sure if you can buy the cart, or even golf.
J. This is an optional 800hp 427 FE ready to drop in.
