Carroll Shelby’s demise earlier this year was a sad event that left a big gaping hole in the auto industry as well as in the hearts of most Mustang fans. With the legendary innovator’s death, almost everything he owned, worked on or said during his lifetime has become cherished and this one pocket wallet exemplifies how something as ordinary and everyday as a wallet can summarize a man’s entire attitude. The Shelby Leather One Pocket Wallet takes us back to the simpler yet classy ‘60s when Shelby’s creations were in their prime.
The wallets are hand crafted through a meticulous process that ensures that no two wallets are ever identical. Each wallet is made by Mulholland Luxury Leather Goods in the U.S. which make it an authentically American product. Fashioned out of genuine leather, the Shelby Leather One Pocket Wallet comes with the words “Ferrari’s ass is mine” engraved on their surface. Carroll Shelby uttered these words in 1965 and the phrase later became a reflection of all the creative ideals and zealous competitive spirit that Shelby felt for his creations.
The Shelby Leather One Pocket Wallet is just big enough to store a few cards or a little cash though it makes one heck of a statement for Mustang fans trying to piss Ferrari fans off. The Shelby Leather One Pocket Wallet is only available in shades of brown and retails for $48. Each piece is delivered to the customer in a Shelby gift bag hand-stained to perfection.
