What were the available options for a 40th car?


Recommended Posts

Thanks for your reply.

Trying to understand what options were available from Shelby on the 40th besides what came in the package.

Appears chrome wheels were an upgrade option

HP option(s)?

Brake option(s)?

Shifter option(s)?

????

I haven't been able to find this info.

The only choice with the 40th package was the color of the wheels (chrome, black, silver or anthracite)

 

The latest options that were offered during a 40th package or a SuperSnake package when the 40th's were being built:

- Leather interior (with or without a console cover, shifter boot, e-brake boot or steering wheel wrap)

- Cooling package (radiator, tanks and heat exchanger w/ 8" fans)

- Shelby (Baer) Brakes (6P front/14" rotors with larger 13" rear rotors or 6P/14" rotors front and rear)

- Shelby 1st gen (blue) shifter or FRPP short shifter

 

Standard Super Snake options that could also be added to a 40th:

- SC upgrade: either 605hp TVS or 725hp KB. (605hp only on convertibles)

- 3.73 rear gears

- Dynotech one piece drive shaft (not sure if anyone did this or not?)

Keep in mind that you cannot order a new 40th from Shelby or anyone else. Production has stopped at the very rare and low number of 312. B)

Thanks for your reply. This is the kind of info I am looking for.

Is there anywhere this is spelled out in detail ie: sales brochure?

You may find what you're looking for here

 

Check post #2, I think I left a web link to the brochure.

Thanks for the link. I have seen this. It lists what the equipment is that is included in the 40th package but no info on options.

 

 

 

 

I'm not sure if you just want the information or want to see it on official Shelby literature but Slabo's depiction (above) is as current (read accurate) as you'll find I believe.

 

There is a brochure for sale on e-bay but I'm not sure that all the options available were listed at the time the brochure was published as the list "evolved" over time.

 

If you have a particular car that you are looking at most of us 40th types can help you sort out any questions/concerns you may have.

No the options were never put in a brochure. You just discussed them with the sales person at Shelby when you ordered your 40th. Here is the original 40th brochure.

An email was sent to those on the original "list" for the 40th conversion for options after the SuperSnake was announced. A cut and paste from my email:

 

 

SHELBY 11-30-07 CORRECTED COPY

 

UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!!

 

Shelby Owners, Future Shelby Owners, and all you guys inquiring on the GT500 packages:

 

COMMUNICATIONS:

 

To date, we have converted 45 Shelby GT500s into 40th Anniversary cars. Scheduling is starting to become increasingly faster, and we expect to have approximately 80 of these cars done by the end of the year. The 40th Anniversary package is capped at 500 units. We have sold over 400 packages now, so the availability will be gone soon. We have made a change in the suspension (adding an adjustable pan hard bar). All customers that have had cars that have been delivered prior to this change will be sent the pan hard bar. The bar will come pre adjusted, so you should be able to do a simple swap to readjust the geometry of the rear end.
