Shelby will resume production of the “charged” Mustang 50 years agoMay 18, 2018
American Company Shelby announced the resumption of production of the Shelby GT500 Super Snake model in 1967. In total it is planned to let out ten cars in a body “fastback” with original “Ford” VIN-numbers. The price of each car will be at least $ 249,995.
At the heart of all Shelby GT500 Super Snake will lie the original Mustangs. Machines will be equipped with V8 with power of more than 550 horsepower and a four-speed manual gearbox. The units with an aluminum or cast-iron block of cylinders will be available for selection.
Like the original GT500 Super Snake, new cars will receive disc brakes and triple racing strips running through the entire body.
“Restarted” oil-car will be included in the Shelby register, as a continuation of the main line. In addition, each car received a special sign plate with autographs of Carroll Shelby and Don McCain.
Machines called Super Snake appeared in the project to test Goodyear tires in 1967. Chief engineer Shelby Fred Goodell modified the usual Mustang, installing a lightweight racing engine with a capacity of 520 horsepower. Also, oil-cars received front disc brakes, differential in the rear axle, rear jet traction and special tires Goodyear Thunderbolt.
