Welcome.
I see by your profile that you list a 67 Mustang. Is that the one in question? Offhand, my first answer would be  - "No, it's not a Shelby". That being said, some pictures would help. When you get into the verification of an engine, it gets complicated explaining where to look, but it gets simpler after you know what to look for and where to look.

Look at your VIN, and if the 5th number is a "K" then you are on your way to determine if It is a Shelby.  If not, you are SOL as far as the original engine is concerned.
