You know how difficult is to find a 1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe? There are only six original cars in the world. They rarer than a Bugatti Veyron and costs multiple times more — that is if you can even find a person willing to part with one. Their wins include Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona, and it even set some land speed records along the way.

Shelby Distribution offers an aluminum body to the Daytona Coupe

Shelby Distribution has announced that it will offer replicas of the celebrated GT. Just like the originals, the new Shelby Daytonas will be built around an aluminum body. But with time also comes improvement, and the coupe will utilize the updated suspension system that can be found in the MkII version of the Superformance Coupe.

Just like the Shelby Cobra, there are kits already available to build replica Dayton Coupes. But unlike most of them, this one is built by Carroll Shelby’s Shelby Distribution. That means these Daytona Coupe will be official cars listed in the Shelby Registry.
