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.

Congratulations James Buijck, our 2015 raffle winner!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 2015 raffle, we were lucky enough to sell all of the tickets this year.  Our very excited winner, James Buick, can’t wait to pick up his 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang. Here’s what he had to say:

“This is completely amazing and so amped! I have always been a Mustang guy and to have a Shelby Mustang, words are at a loss right now.”

Thank you again to all of you for supporting the nonprofit Shelby American Collection. Your contributions make the museum possible.
