Carroll Shelby nor Ford ever produced a Shelby Ranchero. Back in the early 1980's I almost fell for that scam because the president of the Ranchero club featured a Shelby Ranchero in his newsletter and vouched for the owner who was trying to sell it to me.


Lets just say that after some detailed researched I learned this was nothing but a Ranchero that someone had added some reproduction Mustang parts to.


Lets just say that when I asked some more detailed questions I never heard back from the seller nor the Ranchero club president.


Number one rule with Shelby's. Do your research first before you hand your money over. Number two rule. If you don't know the answer start asking others and soon you will now the answer.
