Hello,
New to the forum,
I found a vehicle in my travels which looks like a real beauty but I’m having trouble trying to find out exactly what it is.
Hoping the experts here can help.
Any help would be appreciated.

EXP 500 is a 1968 Shelby known as the "Green Hornet", officially having the EXP 500 on its side. This car is not that, even though it has the EXP 500 on its side and some Shelby Snake emblems on it.

The Mexican Shelby was only available as a coupe and with the 302 cubic-inch engine. So that puts the earliest date of a Mexican Shelby in late 1968 for the first of those cars. They were made until 1969, and then only once again in 1971 as the GT351.

Still looks good. If it was reasonable, I'd add it to my herd.

First I heard of that one...it does bring to mind the Ford EXP of the 80s though...I guess that was the heritage the EXP drew on
