Among the cars on display is a 1965 Shelby GT350. As the first Shelby Mustang, the 1965 Shelby GT350 still stands as a powerful race car, which helped enhance the Mustang's image as a performance street and track vehicle. Carroll Shelby transformed the Mustang into a well respected racing machine and ushered in an era of prosperity and growth for both Shelby and Ford. This particular vehicle was raced heavily in its earlier years at SCCA racing events.

Also among the group is a 1962 Chevrolet 409 Bel Air. Immortalized by the Beach Boys song, 409 this muscle car has a rich racing heritage. Although this model was only produced for a short time, the cult following behind this car gives it the reputation of one of the greatest high-performance muscle cars ever built. This particular vehicle, emblazoned in Roman Red, is a perfect highlight of the series.

"Carroll Shelby put his stamp on automotive history with the creation of the Shelby GT350", said Cooper. He added "It was not long before manufacturers like Mercury, Dodge, Chevrolet and Oldsmobile began introducing their own muscle cars, making the streets and tracks a little faster and more impressive."

The Concours is a year-long celebration of automotive excellence featuring more than ten events. The muscle cars will be displayed at the Concours capstone event on July 12-14 along with 100 of the world's finest and rarest vehicles.
