Video: 1999 Shelby Brock Daytona Coupe Visits Leno’s Garage

brock-1The Shelby Daytona Coupe is one of the most important cars of the last century, and the first car inducted into the National Registry of Historic Vehicles was a Daytona Coupe. The Shelby Daytona Coupe was one of the winningest vehicles of all times, and with only six ever produced, there’s a ravenous level of desire among America’s many Shelby fans.

Pete Brock and Bob Negstad re-engineered the Shelby Daytona Coupe with a Shelby-licensed line of reproduction Daytona Coupes, and Jay Leno had a chance to speak with Bruce Goldsmith about his personal Shelby Brock Daytona Coupe.

Goldsmith goes down the history of the Brock-designed coupes, including a story about Carroll Shelby himself sticking this replica Daytona into a museum, all covered in stickers, in an effort to fool the public. Oh that Carroll Shelby, always was a character.

brock-2This video is longer and more-detailed than most, with Goldsmith talking at length about everything from shock absorbers to the unique features of the underside of the hood. There are only about 130 or so of these replica Daytonas all over the world, but to use Jay’s own words: these are a cut-above the rest.

If you just want to see this Superformance-built Daytona Coupe get going, skip ahead to the 12-minute mark where Leno finally gets behind the wheel. With Jay’s recent retirement from The Tonight Show, we’re sure he’s taking the time to enjoy all of his cars a bit more. If we were Jay, this Daytona Coupe would be at the top of the list of candidates for a long, weekend drive. Would you agree?
