1. The four (4) 1966 G.T. 350 Convertibles were ordered at the end of '66 production. A Shelby American document referred to them as "experimental;" for testing purposes in anticipation of a 1967-1/2 convertible.

2. Two cars were used to achieve 'proof of concept' for the 1967 Shelby Program and then for photographic purposes (i.e. the advertising cars). One car was a Candyapple Red (G.T. 500) Fastback built out of a pre-production Ford Mustang that wore an experimental VIN ending in V-738-2. No SAI VIN was ever assigned to this car [read more]. The other car, painted Lime Gold, may have been an A-code GTA fastback, built on 9/1/1966, sold, given or loaned to SAI (not ordered by SAI via DSO like the rest of the cars). It is generally belied that Shelby American VIN 0176 was assigned to this car.

3. The "Green Hornet" was a standard Dearborn assembly line-built 390 cu.in. (S-code) Ford Mustang coupe purchased by the Shelby Automotive unit in Ionia, MI. This coupe was a second precursor to the California Special and was also used for testing the Conolec fuel injection system and an independent rear suspension (IRS) setup. At some point, the car was fitted with '68 styled Shelby fiberglass, given a unique metallic green paint job, and subsequently nicknamed the "Green Hornet." This car was not ordered as a Shelby and therefore never received a Shelby VIN. This car was eventually sold on the corporate B-lot, was originally restored by Martin Euler and is currently being restored by Billups Classic Cars for Craig Jackson.
