The Shelby American LAX shops at the Los Angeles International Airport were a busy place during the years that followed Shelbyâ€™s move to the hangars in January of 1965. At this 12 acre location, Carroll Shelby produced some of the most memorable cars in automotive history - both 289 and 427 Cobras, the Mustang GT-350 and the GT-350H. This location also produced the Ford X-1 Roadster #1 that will win the Sebring race in the second week of March, 1966, driven by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby, as well as the #2 GT40 MKII. Dan Gurney would end up pushing the #2 across the finish line at Sebring after its engine seized on the last lap while leading the race. Gurney and co-driver Jerry Grant were disqualified.
The LAX facility closed in November 1967 when the production of the Shelby Mustang was moved to Michigan.Â
