Shelby American Collection
The Shelby American Collection celebrates the rich heritage of the Cobra, Shelby Mustang, and Ford GT 40 cars that changed the face of auto racing in the 1960s. Thanks to the generosity of owners and collectors, they have some of the most important American cars ever made on display at the Boulder museum, along with an extensive collection of race records, period photographs, memorabilia, and tributes to the pioneer drivers and visionaries of the era including Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, Phil Remington and other Shelby American Team member.
Since 1996 the Shelby American Collection historic car museum has been open to the public. Started by several Shelby American enthusiasts who lived in Boulder and the surrounding areas. Carroll Shelby himself was involved in the museum until he passed in 2012. The collection is a volunteer-run non-profit organization open every Saturday.
