Shelby Automobiles Remakes GT40 MKII For Carroll's 85th BirthdayS

The guy responsible for some of the most legendary cars in American racing history is turning 85 this year and Shelby Automotive has just the present for him. To celebrate the bought-and-paid-for-by-Ford main man's big birthday bonanza, 255 copies of the MKII GT40 will be remade in the original designs and colors complete with everything from the snorkel intakes to the Gurney bubble. What won't be included is the engine as this is a rolling chassis conveniently modded to accept a Shelby-built 427. Nonetheless, if you want a kit car that isn't a kit, here's the ticket.
