The automatic version also features tinted green crystal with a view to the Swiss made mechanical movement. Produced in 1968 by the legendary American automotive designer and race driver Carroll Shelby, the Mustang hardtop double prototype is an icon for car enthusiasts worldwide. The notchback Shelby became known as the EXP 500 Green Hornet, outfitted with a ’68 Shelby custom hood, groundbreaking independent suspensions and powered by a 428 CJ “X” engine with Fuel Injection. Custom painter Sonny Fee applied three coats of Gold Luster Green lacquer with gold metallic mica over the original topcoat. Emblems and custom white/gold EXP500 stripes identified the car as a true Shelby prototype. This car is now an integral part of American heritage.
