Did Shelby make a 71 Mustang?

Sort of - he authorized them to be made in Europe.

71 Shelby's were left over 70 cars marketed in Europe.
They claim the 69 to 70 Shelby was the prototype design they used to mock up the design for the 71 mustang, which then evolved into the finished new 71 body style.

Did you see the link. The leftover 69's became 70's in the USA. The 71 Shelby Europa was a modified 71 Mustang. See also http://mustangmonthly.automotive.com/679...index.html

The reason our car looks like the shelby is because "bunkie" knudsen liked the way the shelby's looked. The prototype that became our car was a rejected clay mockup intended for the 1969 model with a front end similar to the shelby.

I like the fog lights, there was a 71-73 on ebay a long time ago that was modded to look like a 69-70 shelby with most of the fiberglass scoops, stripes and such, it looked pretty nice

Was it this one? I saw this car for sale in an auction a few years ago.

That 71/67 Eleanor tribute/clone/modified/shelby looking thing was a pretty good one of a kind fastback. I can say I have seen a whole lot worse.
