Shelby American; Transporters and Service Vehicles
« on: March 16, 2018, 06:05:14 PM »
Ok, who follows these vehicles...or has any interest in them?

Last year I started a list of all these "other" Shelby American vehicles. This included the CS Driving School, Goodyear / CS Enterprises, and well as the SA Transporters and Support Vehicles. (I can't explain why I do this stuff)
 ::)

Anyway, I'm building the list with the approximate year/model, license plate, and locations spotted. I suspect there is ledger(s) that exists with most of this info, but I've never seen anything like that so far.

To start this off here's the first CS Goodyear Enterprises van. It was a CHEVY!?!
Yes a Chevy Corvair Greenbriar window van. Not what I would have expected as a tire hauler for Shelby.

Don't forget the different set of vehicles used in Europe vs. US.

I for one love seeing the CS support vehicles especially the COE haulers and the crazy single axle trailer rigs they hauled Cobra Daytona coupes with. Keep 'em coming!

At SAAC 1 the Daytona Coupe arrived on a really junk single axle trailer - turns out it was the original.

Bob,
I didn't forget about the European Transporters and support vehicles, but I've save then for another thread...

kjspeed / Jim,
The single trailers will be included in my photos and info posted here.

Papa scoops,
Sorry I have very little about the plane other than that one magazine cover an maybe an article with another photo.


I'll clean up my list and post it here shortly. (I updated the photos in the first two posts)

This next early CS Enterprises Inc. vehicle is very likely from an earlier point in time. It has 1042 Princeton Dr. written on the doors, not 3219 Carter Ave.
The truck has an older style replaced bed.

This photo was noted as Riverside, but I believe it is Laguna Seca on the same weekend as the Corvair van pictured previously 9/63

Below is the list of the three Carroll Shelby Enterprises Inc. vehicles that I have spotted to date. If anyone has a photo showing the missing license plates or other locations with dates that would be very helpful. I'll post photos of the more commonly seen '64 Econoline Van next.

1963 Ford F250 pickup – CS Enterprises 1042 Princeton Dr – Goodyear Racing Tires -white with older model bed style
     CA plate? (63-5-26 Princeton Dr / 63-9 Road America / 63-9 RiversideLaguna Seca)

1963 Chevy Corvair Greenbriar Window Van- CS Enterprises Inc. 3219 Carter - Goodyear Racing Tires; w Goodyear box trailer
     CA plate “GBV 310” Van – Trailer plate? (63-9 Laguna Seca)

1964 Econoline Heavy Duty Panel Van - CS Enterprises 3219 Carter - Goodyear Racing Tires; w Goodyear box trailer
     CA plate? – Trailer plate? (64-2 Riverside, 64-4 Phoenix, 64-5 Laguna Seca & 64-5 Kent)
