Fortunately I was at Riverside Raceway for the 1967 and 1968 model reveals and managed to get some photos and passenger seat time on the road course. I never opened the hood, but understood at the time that the 428 engine was fitted with a single four-barrel and Paxton supercharger. Most coverage indicates that its engine had two carbs and twin superchargers. Over its lifetime “Little Red” received a number of naturally aspirated and supercharged engines. It was fast, but rode considerably softer and quieter than the fastbacks we drove. It was the most luxurious Shelby Mustang I had ever seen.
