1971 - 72 Shelby
#1
Recently I had come across a web site that provides pictures and a write up on 1971, 1972 Shelby Mustangs. This site is right protected so could not cut and past article to the 7173 web. The short condensed version is that an individual named Claude Dubois (Belgium) was known and licensed by Carroll Shelby to build a few prototypes(?). Based on this, I was wondering if any of our UK members have ever seen these, has pictures or can provide more information. Certainly an interesting twist to the history of our 71 - 73 cars.

They actually did build a limited number of Shelby Europa's in Europe. Here is a link to an article.

There's info about those cars on the forum. What's more we have the owner of both verts on here as a member and one or two guys owning sports roofs.

I have seen two, one of them is sitting in my garage. Cool
They were only build in 1971 and Claude build 7 sportroofs and 2 convertibles.
I have the sportsroof with the special GT500 engine, this is an one of one car. This has been confirmed by Claude to me when I spoke with him many years ago.
There is supposed to be 1 car made with the 429CJ engine but that has not been found yet. I have lots of info on these cars, I also have a copy of the "sales" brochure or something that looks like it. I purchased it together with a set of NOS stripes and Shelby emblems from the guy that purchased all the left overs from Claude.
My car is still not changed from how I bought it, a very rusty car but with all Shelby Europa specific parts and numbers matching drivetrain.
The other owner from the sportsroof in the Netherlands purchased my original fenders but does not want to sell them to me (yet) Chin
The fenders still wear the original stripes and damage, I have the front valley that continues the damage so that's why I'm sure these fenders belong to my car.

Edwin,

Thank you very much for the info. Have you posted photos? You are extremely fortunate to own a special part of Mustang history. Please update this site with any changes. I'm sure many members would be interested.

Thanks again!

These are the photos of my old fenders hanging on the wall.
The car shown here is the other Shelby Europa in the Netherlands. This is a manual while mine is an auto.
