He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

2nd 427 ever built

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who has the 2nd 427 engine ever built, it was the backup engine for the GT-40 sitting in the Shelby museum and he wants to sell it.

Can anybody point him in the right direction on where to sell it and what he might get for it? Oh, it's still in the original box, never assembled. 

Thanks!

Sounds like a good item for the classic enthusiast collectors like those at SAAC.  Unfortunately, the SAAC Forum is currently down for maintenance (like this one was awhile back), but should be up in a few weeks.  For good money it will require documentation for the claims made for its history as the backup 427 for the GT40 program and 2nd built.  The 427 was built and used in Ford cars before the GT40 program.

What he said ^

Could it be that it is the "Back Up" Engine for the "Second" GT40 built?

SAAC forum back up.  Many of the members have documentation that be helpful in verifying or disputing the claim.  TS is the prime source for  later Shelby American verification.
