1963 Apollo 3500 GT

I’m going to be honest here, I can’t tell you anything about the Apollo 3500 GT that you can’t learn by simply checking it out its Wikipedia article or by Googling it.

If I have things my way, it won’t be the...

Factory records obtained from AC Cars Limited show that chassis number 3127, as listed on their invoice: “Prototype Mk.II Road Car, Unpainted, Black Leather”, was completed and shipped to Shelby American in Los Angeles by air on April 30th, 1965. While most Cobras were shipped by boat to the States, the importance of 3127 is demonstrated by the fact that not only was it shipped by air, but...
