Shelby prototype vehicles rarely come up for sale – essentially because so very few were ever actually made. This Shelby is one of them. Shelby Terlingua #2 Prototype is up for sale and it’s a once in a lifetime chance to own one of the most sought after Shelby Mustangs ever built – period!
This particular Shelby Terlingua was the workhorse of the Terlingua program appearing at shows and events across the U.S. and in numerous Shelby advertisements. Finished in screaming yellow with black accents, it represents the very personification of the Terlingua brand itself.
Shelby Terlingua 2P is the only Shelby to appear in two Shelby commercials and was used extensively for by Shelby for promotional purposes.
Originally sold in Taylor, Michigan, 2P was shipped from Wyandotte, Michigan to Shelby American in Las Vegas, Nevada in June 2008. Shelby completed Terlingua 2P build on 20 July 2008 and it made its debut in Park City, Utah. From there, it was sent to the 2008 Shelby Terlingua Bull Run in Terlingua, Texas and numerous events thereafter.
A total of 39 Shelby Terlingua models were made for the S197 (2005-2009) program. Of those, only two were prototypes – one grabber orange and this screaming yellow (2P). A total of two screaming yellow Shelby Terlinguas were made, only one was a prototype and it’s the only one of the two with a manual transmission.
