Carroll Shelby ran the GT40 program from 1965 ( I think ) including 2 victories at LeMans in '66 - '67.
I think it was his idea to stick a Galaxie 7.0 litre engine in it, instead of the old 4.7L (289ci).
the GT40 was the result of the two racing Carrolls of the time.

Carroll Shelby did the engine and gearbox
Carroll Smith did chassis and suspension

You guys are right ... I failed to remember all this ... it's been a while since I was in the States and/or owned a Mustang or other brand muscle car ...

He was a bit before my time, too ... far too many hours of "re-run" TV in States during my childhood J
