1st Mustang Shelby GT 500 found; experts crowd-source its history
One of automotive history’s near-mythical lost cars has been found, but mystery still surrounds “Little Red,” an experimental Ford Mustang that’s the father of every Shelby GT 500 performance car ever built.
The car sleuths who tracked it down are hoping to crowdsource info to fill in the blanks, particularly with information from the Detroit area.
Little Red’s unveiling shocked an audience of Shelby experts and enthusiasts at The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn Michigan, and in an unexpected display at Mustang Alley in Ferndale during the Woodward Dream Cruise.
One of the first Mustangs built with a big-block 428 cubic inch V8, the Mustang began life as a ’67 experimental engineering car built in Ford’s San Jose, Calif., plant. It spent years with legendary racer and performance car maker Carroll Shelby, then disappeared.

Advertisements for delivery, advertisements promoting the substance for relaxation, for fun, for health. “Shop. It’s legal.” “Hello marijuana, goodbye hangover.” “It’s not a trigger, But it is in your face.”
