Shelby's company, Carroll Shelby international, announced today (Friday) that the motoring icon had died in a Dallas hospital on Thursday.
"Whether helping Ford dominate the 1960s racing scene or building some of the most famous Mustangs, his enthusiasm and passion for great automobiles over six decades has truly inspired everyone who worked with him. He was a great innovator whose legend at Ford never will be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends."
A sentiment that all at PH HQ echo as do, we're sure, every petrolhead in the wider PH community. RIP Carroll, and thanks for the V8s.
