We began purchasing Shelby items from The Carroll Shelby Children’s Foundation in 1996. Some purchased at car shows and many more purchased directly from Shelby Headquarters in Gardena, California. When we purchased items elsewhere we drove them to Gardena for Carroll Shelby to sign and made large donations to the CSCF.
Some of the more valuable pieces are still in our possession and it’s time to let them go. Check periodically for newly listed items.
