Shelby Wide-body kit offers retro-inspired design to modify vehicles

 

Detroit News

 

When Shelby died last spring, Ford and Shelby American worked together on a tribute vehicle, a special Shelby GTR500 Cobra Mustang — Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon White racing stripes — that was unveiled as part of the big Shelby celebration last summer on California’s Monterey Peninsula.

Among other special parts, that car featured a then-unique and Shelby American-designed “wide-body” kit with fenders flared to broaden the car’s stance and to cover wider wheels and tires.

Took mine out for a spin with the wife...best moment was the wife in a vette oogling as they drove by us, lol

 

 

I can't wait to see your supersnake in person. I am going to Brainerd on Monday June 24th if you have time you should meet me up there.

I wonder what the wide body kit would look like on a 08 SGT Vert?

 

 

It looks amazing on verts, and amazing on Shelby GTs, so I'm gonna guess "double amazing"? LOL...

Damn!!! I have to go to hotlanta next week for business.....we will meet up at some point this summer for sure! The car is not slated to be on a truck back to the midwest for a couple more weeks, so it would not have worked out regardless....

I just love it on my GT350 'vert. But knowing how long it takes, and how much body skill and experience from the craftsmen, I would be very worried having just anybody doing this job.

 

 

Sweet.... I didn't know you had a wide body kit on your GT350. Your car is beyond super cool. I agree I wouldn't trust anybody else to do it other than Shelby. I think I am going to start saving for the wide body kit.

Thanks, I think mine is the only one on a GT350 'vert (or maybe any GT350?) so far. I does catch people's attention. I am taking it to a Make-A-Wish charity car show this weekend, I'm sure nobody there has ever seen a new GT350, much less one like mine, should be interesting. Guess I better be ready to talk all day about it.
