1. The four (4) 1966 G.T. 350 Convertibles were ordered at the end of the '66 production run. A Shelby American document referred to them as "experimental;" to be used for testing purposes in anticipation of a 1967-1/2 G.T. convertible.

2. Two cars were used to achieve 'proof of concept' for the 1967 Shelby Program and then for photographic purposes (i.e. the advertising cars). One car was a Candyapple Red (G.T. 500) Fastback built out of a pre-production Ford Mustang that wore an experimental VIN ending in V-738-2. No SAI VIN was ever assigned to this car [read more]. The other car, was repainted Lime Gold and appeared in original advertisements. It was born a Clearwater Aqua 289-2V GTA fastback, built by Ford on 9/1/1966. Shelby American sequence #0176 was assigned to this car [learn more].

3. The 1968 "Green Hornet" was a regular 390 cu.in. (S-code) Ford Mustang Coupe, built at the Dearborn assembly plant and purchased by the Shelby Automotive Company in Ionia, MI as an engineering vehicle. This coupe was fitted with a Conolec fuel injection system and an independent rear suspension (IRS). It was also fitted with '68 styled Shelby fiberglass, given a unique metallic green paint job, and subsequently nicknamed the "Green Hornet." This car was not ordered as a Shelby and therefore never received a Shelby VIN, but is considered a precursor to the mid-'68 'California Special.' This car was eventually sold on the corporate B-lot.
