Dedicated to the legacy of Carroll Shelby and the Shelby American Team, the Shelby American Collection celebrates the rich heritage of the world’s most famous racing cars. The unparalleled, one-of-a-kind, non-profit museum in Boulder, Colorado, is committed to serving as a resource for enthusiasts, collectors, history buffs – just about anyone interested in the 1960s automotive renaissance with its incredible array of drivers, visionaries and racing’s timeless works of art.
From Shelby’s British AC predecessor and the 289 and 427 race and street Cobras, to the rare Daytona and Willment Coupes, to the revolutionary Ford GT40 and the GT350 Shelby Mustangs, the Shelby American Collection has some of the rarest, most valuable and authentic cars on display anywhere in the world. The museum is also home to an extensive collection of memorabilia, art, race records, period photographs and tributes to the pioneer drivers of the era, and the dramatic histories and life stories of Carroll Shelby, Enzo Ferrari, Henry Ford and other icons of 1960s auto design, industry and racing lore.
The museum thrives on the generosity of the owners, collectors, sponsors, donors and volunteers who make everything possible in preserving this heritage. For our upcoming 19th anniversary, we’re celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Carroll Shelby and the Shelby American Team winning the 1965 FIA International Championship of GT Manufacturers. We invite you to join our community, visit the museum, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and join us for our annual party and car show on Labor Day weekend.
