Back in the 1967, Shelby produced the most powerful muscle car at that time, the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. It was produced only one example of this muscle beast, and was developed for high-speed tire testing by the Goodyear Tire Company.
Now, after 50 years, Shelby American says that they have an “unfinished business” of the muscle car’s pioneer’s, Carroll Shelby and Don McCain. Now Shelby will produce a limited number of only ten unique examples of this exquisite and legendary model.
The new 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Continuation versions will be built from original donor ‘67 Mustangs with factory VIN’s and original titles. The donor car will be stripped to bare metal, and will be completely rebuilt. Shelby will install their serial number for the official Shelby registry.
Under the hood, Shelby will equip this Super Snake with race-inspired aluminum or cast-iron 427 cubic-inch, 7.0-liter big-block V8 engine, which will be capable of producing more than 550 horsepower. In addition will be equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission and power disc brakes on all four wheels. This 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Continuation will start at $249,995.
