The Shelby American magazine had an article on the Green Hornet. If you are interested in a copy e-mail me directly. calfulfam@aol.com

That guys car looks pretty cool.(the one that admin put a link to) But I can't believe he wouldn't spend the money for orginal fiberglass, or accurate reproductions.

I researched and wrote both the Mustang Monthly--and Shelby American articles on the Green Hornet.

Quite a car, and MM considered the GH as the top restored Mustang for that year.

Who would want to see the build specs for Lil Red, and the Green Hornet??

It would take about a week to compile it.

Re:Anybody have pics of Little Red and Green Hornet?

The "green Hornet" is an interesting car. I don't debate it is a prototype, but I think it is debatable it was a Shelby. It would have been the only one built in Dearborn during the 68 model year and the only one that didn't say "SHELBY UNIT" on the build sheet.

The significance, AFAIK, is that Shelby designed it as a potential production unit, like Little Red. That's why I think that SAAC would even consider it.

Re:Anybody have pics of Little Red and Green Hornet?

Does anyone know what emblem is on the C-pillar of Lil' Red? I know that GH had the Cobra Snake and Cobra spelled out in one emblem, but I have no clue on LR as a pic I have is too far away.

Thanks
Ernie

Re:Anybody have pics of Little Red and Green Hornet?

this is the emblem that is on the c-pillar of the lil red. i have a "mustang card" of the lil red and can see which emblem it is. on the fastback, this would be on the decklid. this is a pic of the 500, lil red would be the GT 350.
