The Mexican Shelby was a failure like all of the Shelby ventures. Henry Ford II got fed up with him after the 1966 year and pulled everything into Ford. Since Shelby had signed over the use of his name and it sold cars Ford kept and keeps on using it. How someone that failed at multiple car ventures with several companies got such a reputation I have no idea.
I would like to have a rear spoiler and real slats from the Mexican Shelby to go on my track days car. They were also coupes.
