Exactly, all the "shelby american" parts on those cars were just rebadged parts from other manufacturers. The shelby brakes were baer or brembo, the caster/camber plates were maximum motorsports etc.
I dont really see this as a big deal, who knows if that "sells for more money" quote is true
I also don't think it is a big deal......FORD renamed the FORD 500 to the Taurus. Maybe they could call the new GT350 "Santa's Sleigh." Good name recognition. Even though Santa has never driven it and it isn't a sleigh, maybe people won't notice it and will pay more for it
