Craig Jackson and Pennzoil unveil re-restored 'Green Hornet' Mustang at SEMA

Craig Jackson, CEO of Barrett-Jackson auctions, and Shell lubricant brand Pennzoil celebrated the unveil of a restored 1968 Ford Mustang prototype nicknamed "Green Hornet" at SEMA. The pony car is one of two mythical creations and collaborations between Ford Motor Company and Carroll Shelby's Shelby American, the other being a 1967 Mustang nicknamed "Little Red." The two cars were the only two notchback coupes built by Ford and Shelby; both started as prototypes for the automaker, then served as prototypes for the legendary racer's R&D efforts. Green Hornet started out painted Lime Gold, and Ford used it as a testbed for the GT/Super Coupe program, which would eventually turn into the Mustang California Special.
