The History of Benito Lores #8 Shelby Notchback

To provide some input for your interesting site, I ordered this car back in 1966 and brought it down to Lima, Peru , besides some five R GT350s and two Cobras, one road and one street. 

I ordered and imported two other notchbacks during 1967 built for two local drivers: Arnaldo Alvarado and Emilio Fort. 

The 1966 I used for some six months and sold it to Renzo Matellini. The person I dealt with at Shelby was mainly Lew Spencer.  

I‘ve been back here in the States since 1999, but wouldn’t mind at all getting involved in cars again."
