The Quail Celebrates 45 Years of the Shelby Mustang [Gallery]


Amidst the classic Ferraris and the typical antique pre-war models on display at "The Quail Motorsports Gathering," this year's event featured a wide selection of American muscle, all thanks to Carroll Shelby. The Quail has increasingly become a popular spot for high-end automakers to display their wares in the week-long run-up to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, however, it continues to stay true to its roots, focusing on motorsports.

"Carroll Shelby is one of America's great success stories," said Gordon McCall, co-founder of The Quail Motorsports Gathering in a statement. "He has been a World War II aviator, a champion racecar driver winning the 24 Hours at Le Mans amongst other races and a legendary automobile designer. It is important to celebrate his passion and ingenuity that is an inspiration for Americans and motorsports enthusiasts alike."

Of the several dozen Shelby models on display, some of the most notable include a one-of-four 1966 GT350 Convertible, a one-of-three remaining 1965 GT350 Drag Race, a 1967 GT500 Super Snake and the incredible 1968 GT500 Green Hornet – featuring both fuel injection and an independent rear suspension. And of course, numerous Shelby Cobras were also on display.
