In the late 60s, Carroll Shelby wanted to experiment with a Paxton supercharged small block G.T.350. This combination would give the car big block power and small block nimbleness. He never had the chance to build it before production wound down.
Stephen Becker teamed up with Carroll to do this project. They took a G.T.350 convertible and used all original parts to see what the Shelby would have been in the 60s.
In the same way the Green Hornet and Little Red represent a piece of history, this G.T.350 demonstrates the innovations that have always been a part of the Shelby heritage.
Of the 788 1970 Shelbys, 318 were G.T.350's. 57 of those were convertibles. Of them, 23 had four-speed close ratio manual transmissions. 2 of them were painted Wimbledon White and 1 of those had black bucket seats.
