The Ford Mustang shook the auto industry when it was released in 1964 

with Ford selling over 400,000 units in its first year.  

Although it was welcomed with open arms by American audiences, Ford's general manager, Lee Iacocca 

thought it didn't have the image of a "strong" car. 

This collaboration resulted in the 1965 Shelby Mustang GT500.  

This car shatters all preconceived notions about Mustang performance. 

In 1967 Ford expanded the Mustang with a big-block V8 called the GT500. 

. His 428 cu-in engine in the Mustang Shelby GT500 put out his mouth-watering 350+ horsepower and 400+ lb-ft of torque. 

In 1968, things got out of hand when Ford fitted a revised version of  

the same his 428 cu engine to make his GT500 faster than ever.  

This engine was called the Cobra Jet and was renamed from his GT500 to his GT500KR.  

This means "King of the Lord" with his last two letters.
