Shelby GT500 Long Lost Prototype Was Found in a Field and Fully Restored

There’s a lot of crazy history behind the Ford Mustang. Seemingly, the stories never end. However, those stories start getting crazier when you throw racing legend Carroll Shelby into the mix. Shelby was responsible for the most powerful and fastest Mustangs to come out of the 1960s. He was also a significant player in Ford’s domination of Ferrari with the GT40 program. However, one of the most iconic vehicles tied to Carroll Shelby’s name is undoubtedly the Ford GT500. Though a regular GT500 is rare in its own right, few are rarer than “Little Red,” the GT500 prototype that went missing for 50 years.

According to Ford, Little Red is one of only two notchback Mustang models that ever wore the Shelby name. The other one is known as “The Green Hornet.” Both of these cars belong to Craig Jackson, the chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson Auctions.
