Shelby, a former chicken farmer turned Le Man-winning race car driver from Texas, saw immediate areas of opportunity for the ‘Stang. He thought he would swap out the V6 for a V8, perform the necessary suspension and chassis modifications and there you have it. But, the Mustang, like other icons in the industry, kept its essentials over the decades. Watch the video below to experience the evolution of America’s favorite sports car.
