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 & preserve one of the most important eras in American automotive history for all generations.


Congratulations to Scott Harding who won our 2020 Shelby GT500 Sweepstakes with ticket number 157605. We thank each and every one of you who participated our the GT500 sweepstakes fundraiser. The Shelby American Collection team is grateful for your ongoing support of the museum. Your donations have been particularly important this year as we, along with so many others, have been challenged with closures and limited numbers of visitors due to the pandemic.

We are already getting your emails asking when the next sweepstakes will start. Stay tuned – it won’t be long before we will reveal another exciting Shelby car that you could win


Thank you to our generous sponsors
