A Little History

The Shelby Daytona coupe was conceived in 1964 by legendary designer Peter Brock. At the age of 19, he was hired out of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena by General Motors, making him the youngest designer GM had ever hired.
Brock created the Daytona in a mere 90 days by starting with a Cobra chassis that had crashed at the 1963 LeMans race. He removed the bodywork and put a steering wheel and seat where he felt would be their best placement. He sat driver Ken Miles in the car, and starting with placing the windshield. He built the car around him using wood forms. He and the team then hand-hammered the aluminum body work for the original car.
