COME AND MEET THE SHELBY GIRL!
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:30:11 PM »
I stumbled upon this ad by complete accident at MCACN, and you can see why I pounced on it.

It's an ad that I had never seen before (I didn't even know Shelby was still advertising in 1971) and hey, a new SHELBY GIRL!
What's not to like about that??

The SUPERSNAKE's fame continues on, four years after its debut:

Hey Kieth!

That is a cool find. I've never even thought to look at magazines after 1970 for any Shelby ads.
"Silverton_Ford" thanks for adding the poster find (Ed's ebay ad) to this post.

I wonder if it was the same model that did the topless poster earlier. Was she a staple spokes person ( model ) for SA and she migrated to when he sold wheels?

Good Eye! Id like to know too...

What year was the topless poster from, somewhere between 67 & 69, right?

Did they have the outfit made first, and then found a girl that fit, or the other way around?

That's a great question on when it was from. I guessed the same thing ( 67-9 ), as it had the "shelby" text in the Hi Performance logo. Maybe Vern will chime in and clarify what the actual year was. The Don Prudhomme poster had the same logo on it, so would be in that same timeline.

Probably another photoshop trick. Anybody notice CS stole the name "Cal 500" from a race of the same name at Ontario Motor Speedway?
