67 Shelby GT500E Super Snake Top Image

In 1967 Carroll Shelby built one GT500 Shelby Mustang 427 Shelby “Super Snake” VIN# 67402F4A00544. This 1 of 1 vehicle was built at Shelby American for Mel Burns Ford. It was intended to be the first of 50. But no other Super Snake was built due to the retail price of $7,500 and a 427 Cobra could be bought for roughly the same amount. It was driven by Carroll Shelby at the Goodyear test track in Texas for tire promotion film production. Carroll recorded lap speeds over 150 mph and top speed of 170 mph!

So I decided to build my own Super Snake, but with all modern parts. Coilover suspension, disc brakes, modern driveline, engine, transmission, A/C system, electric windows, power door locks, etc.
I entered her in the MOCA (Mustand Owners Club of Austin) Ford & Mustang show on August 4th. She took a Class Award and the more important Participants' Choice (Drivers or Entrants Choice).
