Shelby was involved with Chrysler in those days. I worked for Chrysler back then and owned a 1987 Dodge Shelby Charger. Are you asking about a Chrysler product from that time period ??

No.  Shelby had a kit for the Vette.  Information is available at blowerworks.com now.  I was just looking to see if there was anything else out there ont he internet.  The car that I have only has 33k miles on it and I was thinking about selling it.  Just looking for more information.

Are you talking about a Greg Carroll Supercharged car?  The plates that are on top of the valved covers say Carroll Corvette but that stands for Greg Carroll not Carroll Shelby.
 
If you go to the site listed above (www.blowerworks.com) and on the left click on the word Corvette.  Then Click on Carroll Corvette Supercharging that will take you to a place on the web site showing a Yellow C6.  There is a little text under the rear tire of that car to the left of the different engine pictures.  If you read that and Scroll you will see that it talks about Greg Carroll. 
 
If you have a Greg Carroll you have a special car in its own right.  Back in the day these were cars that were talked about in the same circles and Greenwood, and Reeves Calloway.  Would love to see some underhood pics of your ride.

If you are talking body kit you might be thinking Shinoda and not shelby.

This thread is 4 years old. I doubt anyone is thinking about anything to do with this any longer.

Yeah, this thread may be 4 years old, but it sure is cool to see how much this forum's people know about Corvettes, ... that we have, that we did have, that we wish we could have, that are cool to have, no matter who has them.  Amazing and interesting.  That's what forums are for, and this is an example of why this one is such a great one.  Enjoy!
