The 1971 Shelby Mustangs You Have Never Seen

rare 1971 shelby mustangs

Perhaps the most passionate Ford enthusiasts are aware of the 1971 Shelby Mustangs produced for the European market only, but most people have never seen one of these rare classics. The man responsible for the 1971 Shelby Europa cars was a famous Belgian racer named Claude Dubois who was also one of the first licensed Shelby dealers at the Old Continent. When he heard the news that the production of Shelby Mustangs will be discontinued, he called Carroll Shelby and convinced him to send him nine 1971 Mustangs which will be transformed into licensed Shelby’s and sold in Europe.

Carroll Shelby even attended the Brussels Motor Show along with Claude Dubois, where the 1971 Shelby Mustang was debuted and the car attracted a lot of attention. There were seven Fastbacks (Sportsroofs) and two Convertibles. Both Convertibles and one of the Sportsroof Mustangs were converted to GT500 and the remaining six cars were GT350. There were seven M-code, one H-code and one J-code Shelby fitted with the mighty 429 Super Cobra Jet. Most of the 1971 Shelby Mustangs are still in existence possessed by European collectors.
