I have ridden in one of these late model Z06 Vettes and it was VERY impressive I can only imagine what that 600+ hp monster is like! HOLY CRAP! SUPER handling AND gobs of power! HOLY CRAP.

That what it was and that's who it was. Ford really didn't need Shelby to sell Mustangs that was already happening. But Ford was big into factory racing and it's image and figured Shelby's involvement was a win win addition. He could only help bt sell more Mustangs and help fill the gap left by the people who really wanted a Cobra but either couldn't afford one or the car was just impractical in their lifestyle.

In 1968 and 1969 Redline tires were available as a option. I knew the color but had to verify the years.
