    Ford Shelby GT prototype discovered after 50 years

    Long thought crushed and lost to time, a fascinating piece of Shelby and Ford history has recently been found. This was an extremely rare model fitted with the cubic-inch V-8 engine. In fact, it's the only GT coupe that came from the factory wearing a pair of four-barrel carburetors.
