135834 / 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake

Like so many things modern-era Shelby, the story of the Continuation Super Snakes is a bit of a convoluted tale. But, like so many things classic-era Shelby, that story is part of what makes the cars so cool and so collectable. Back in 2001, Shelby authorized Dallas’ Unique Performance to build 400 Base and Performance GT500Es and 75 GT500E Super Snakes. Unfortunately, Unique Performance experienced major financial strain, and only 43 Super Snakes made it out of the hole. Naturally, that financial strain caused the company to cut costs and compromise quality. And while this coupe, CSE-SS058, had accumulated an initial construction cost of $171K by its June, 2006 completion date, it needed quite a bit of post-build sorting. After everything on the numbers side got settled, the car was sent to Revved Automotive Concepts for an additional $100K of work. And today, this Ford roils as one of the coolest, fastest, most lust worthy and most exclusive Mustangs on the planet! Hoist the car’s snug fitting hood and you’ll find 482 cubic inches of Shelby big block that utilizes a Shelby-commissioned Vortech supercharger to make 670 horsepower off the crankshaft. Behind the buff FE, a RAM hydraulic clutch engages a shielded Tremec 3550 5-speed, which twists an aluminum driveshaft that’s threaded to a Currie 9-inch axle and big, 3.50 gears. That rear end rolls on a tailored Unique Performance suspension, which complements Revved geometry with power rack-and-pinion steering. Braking is equally class, with beefy calipers, “SHELBY” branded Baers up front, clenching four drilled and slotted rotors. And torque shakes the ground through Shelby-branded blades, which twist a quartet of Toyo Proxes R888s. Storied and equally seductive, this Mustang absolutely sets the bar for top-of-the-line pony cars. If you’re the kind of gearhead who demands the best, and understands that quality doesn’t compromise, you’re well aware of the bliss this Ford offers.
