1967 Toyota 2000GT prepped by Carroll Shelby headed to auction

Carroll Shelby's touch still lingers to grace the auction fates of vintage racers rarely spoken of in conjunction with his name. Last August, it was RM Sotheby's offering a Ruddspeed Ace, the English roadster that served as archetype for Shelby's Cobra. Next month, at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, Gooding & Co will put a 1967 Toyota 2000GT on the block, chassis number MF10-100001. This was the first production model with a serial number to leave the Toyota line in Japan, destined for Carroll Shelby's California shop for development to race in the 1968 SCCA Championship in the C/Production class for imports. Toyota was making its name on dealer lots with economy cars, but wanted to win on Sunday against competitors like Alfa Romeo, Datsun, Lotus, Nissan, Porsche and Triumph.

Why Do Car Fans Remain So Crazy About Carroll Shelby?

Only once in my life have I gone into a bar and told the bartender, “Double whiskey please, and don’t stop pouring until I fall off this stool.”. It was September 2007. That morning, I had spent two hours interviewing Carroll Shelby at his office in Gardena, California. It was the best interview I’d ever done. Shelby regaled me with stories and insights. There was a magic about his charisma. It was intoxicating. He could weave stories about colossal figures in the motoring world, from Henry Ford II to Shelby American chief engineer Phil Remington, then toss in there that his favorite restaurant was Quiznos. Afterward, he’d insisted on driving me to the airport. One of his employees turned to me, behind his back, in a panic. “No!! He can’t see!” she whispered. “He’s nearly blind!”
