Importing your Shelby to the United Kingdom
The cars bear the name of one of the most creative car designers ever to live. His legacy lives on through many variants of the Ford brand and his focus was high-performance cars without compromise.
Importing a Shelby can be a daunting task and there are a few models that aren’t exactly cheap to import.
The first Shelby GT350 was built in 1965 was the first car to be reimagined by Shelby. Opting for a 4.7ltr V8 and a complete overhaul to bring the car the racing pedigree it deserved.
After one year the 1966 GT350 incorporated more luxury and a more comfortable driving experience. As time went on this trend followed and ultimately lost the competitive racing edge.
Carroll Shelby ultimately left the GT program in 1969 and the rare few models that were released became a collectors dream. So if you are looking to import a classic Shelby muscle car into the United Kingdom don’t hesitate to get in touch.
In the present day, the Shelby name wasn’t lost and production restarted in 2005 and the name has lived on.
If you are planning on importing a modern Shelby mustang that is less than ten years old it will require an IVA test. Otherwise, an MOT is sufficient.
