Shelby Goes Racing With Ford - A must watch video if you are a true Cobra fan.

Click image below for a look at how our hobby started.


Marvelous 20 minute film of Team Shelby’s racing exploits. Even if this film was just the Willow Springs chalk talk with Peter Brock it would be worth the watch. That it’s interspersed with sequences of Dan Gurney or Ken Miles illustrating his lecture on the track makes it mandatory viewing. You might just learn a touch of racecraft that’s just as true today as it was 50 years ago. Of course that first-generation GT40 and a spinning and drifting 289 Cobra aren’t hard to look at either.

From the archives of Car Films a newly restored film, Shelby Goes racing With Ford. There have been a few copies of this film floating around on DVD or VHS but they are the old transfer made back in the early 80's from an old scratched print. We found a very good print of this film and had it digitally transferred. The complete film is available on dvd with the 1 hr documentary "Cobra Day at the Petersen Museum." This film is one of the rarest and most historically significant in the Ford library, showing the origin of the Shelby racing legacy.
