Dedicated to the history of Carroll Shelby and the Shelby American Team

What We’re About

The Shelby American Collection celebrates the rich heritage of the Cobra, Shelby Mustang and Ford GT 40 cars that changed the face of auto racing in the 1960s.

Thanks to the generosity of owners and collectors, we have some of the most important American cars ever made on display at our Boulder museum, along with an extensive collection of race records, period photographs, memorabilia and tributes to the pioneer drivers and visionaries of the era including Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, Phil Remington and other Shelby American Team members.

The museum and this website are dedicated to serve as a resource for all enthusiasts, and to memorialize and preserve one of the most important eras in American automotive history for all generations.

Our 2016 fundraising campaign is now underway. This year we are giving away a stunning Magnetic Gray 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang equipped with the hot Track Package option. Make a donation to the nonprofit Shelby American Collection today and we’ll enter you in our drawing to win this amazing Shelby! Click here for all the details
