Carroll Shelby Goes Racing with Ford.

Ford provided Carroll Shelby with an engine for his start up sports car company and AC supplied the bodies. Shelby hired a bunch of hot rod builders in California and they created the Cobra.

Soon Ford turned to Shelby to beef up the Mustang and turn it into a Corvette beater. The GT 350 was born.

But there was more. Henry Ford II had tried to buy Ferrari and was spurned. Not one who was used to losing he decided to beat Enzo Ferrari on the track. After Ford's first forays stalled they turned to Shelby to beef up the GT 40s and take on Ferrari.
