Texas chicken farmer-turned race car driver then race team manager and car builder – has long been credited with helping. Create the first high-performance Mustang. He began his involvement with Ford Motor Company in 1962 by installing Ford 260/289 V-8 engine in British sports car called the AC that SHelby renamed the Cobra. Shelby’s Ford-powered car went on to win the FIA Manufactirers Grand Touring World Championship in 1965 – the only American car company to ever do so. Shortly after the launch of the first Ford Mustang in 1964, Lee Iacocca’s team reached out to Shelby and asked if he would be willing to help Ford turn the Mustang into a credible performance car. Shelby and his group of racing engineers were up for the task, and on January 27, 1965, the first Shelby Mustang – a 1965 Shelby GT350 – made its public debut. The car was an instant hit at the track. When Mustang got a big-block V-8 in 1967, Shelby offered a GT500 version, and when the Cobra Jet engine came along in’68, the Shelby GT500 became the GT500KR, for King of the Road.
