  1. This website is very difficult for a non computer wizard. Simply trying to sigh up or need a phone number to call. I have purchased a registered certificate already and had to do everything by mail send to Las Vegas. Looking to purchase Shelby GT head rest for my 200t Shelby GT


    Houston Tx


  2. We have recently purchased a 1965 Superformance Shelby Cobra Mark 3. It was constructed in 2010. It is powered by a 351 stroker and has a five speed Tremec trans. From 1-10 its a 10+. It is flawless in every way. We are absolutely excited. Next to strapping into our aircraft this is the very next best thing. Prior to our purchase I have over time owned three Corvettes three Porches and one Jag XKE. My wife and I are certified General Aviation Pilots. I have been driven by the Cobras shear muscle and cannot wait to tweek it further.

  3. Anyone going to this year's Shelby bash?

  5. SHELBY AMERICAN TAKES A WALK ON THE “WIDE SIDE” WHILE REPEATING HISTORY at North American INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW Shelby American Revives Legendary “Pocket Rocket” and Ups It’s Muscle Car Game - note - this press release was posted numerous times, however, we wanted to break it out as its own topic. More Resources: Shelby Focus ST Build One Shelby Focus ST Photos Shelby Focus ST Styling Guide (PDF) DETROIT – Jan. 15, 2013 – Shelby American, Inc., a division of Carroll Shelby International (CSBI.PK), unveiled today its new 850 horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake “Wide Body” as well as the new performance tuned Shelby Focus ST at the North American International Auto Show. The two cars represent bookends in the lineup of high performance vehicles available from Shelby American. “Carroll Shelby’s innovative and aggressive hot-rodder spirit lives on at Shelby American today. ” said John Luft, president of Shelby American. “His Cobra redefined the sports car genre and then Shelby turned what some called a ‘secretary’s car’, the Mustang, into the fire-breathing GT350. A few years later, Shelby practically invented the American ‘pocket-rocket’ with the four-cylinder turbocharged, front wheel drive Shelby GLH. This year, we’re returning to our roots with a pair of game-changing cars that will rewrite the rules for American performance.” Shelby American takes the stock 662 horsepower 2013 GT500 and boosts its performance to a street-legal 850 horsepower while keeping it 50 state emissions legal and tuned on 91 octane pump gas. Adding Shelby’s new Wide Body option puts all that power to the pavement, and the rest is history. “Now with 13 inch rear and 10 inch front wheels that are wrapped in serious rubber, the car launches and handles like the super car it is,” added Gary Davis, vice president of production at Shelby American. The optional wide body package isn’t just a cosmetic change, it now gives the Super Snake much more traction and makes it easy to exploit the Shelby’s potential right past the competition.” Customers can choose between Satin Black, Gloss White, Silver, Blue and Red stripes. Offered now for the first time, wheel options include a rear-only or front and rear “wide body” packages. Even though the new Wide Body Super Snake will have the chops to lead the muscle car pack, it is the return of Carroll Shelby’s beloved “Pocket Rocket” that may be the biggest news in Detroit. Shelby Introduces 850 HP Wide body Monster and New Pocket Rocket (2/2) “Carroll Shelby ignored critics who said the turbo four Omni couldn’t be an affordable performance car in the 1980s,” noted Gary Patterson, vice president of Operations/Sales. “He proved them wrong with an impressive, lightweight four cylinder performer. Ford Motor Company’s new Focus ST is the perfect platform for the rebirth of the front wheel drive turbo four cylinder Shelby. It is a car that Carroll wanted to build before his passing and is a worthy successor to his ‘Pocket-Rocket’ GLH.” Designed in the Shelby skunkworks and tested extensively at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the front wheel drive Shelby Focus ST is a driver-focused masterpiece of performance with a budget minded price. New Ford Racing suspension pieces lower the car while the wheels and tires improve grip and traction. The bigger Shelby spec brakes with drilled rotors enhance the stopping power; along with the sound of the Shelby/Borla exhaust makes it uniquely Shelby. Inside, the car has a complete Shelby branded custom interior, Shelby shifter and finished off with the unique Shelby CSM badge. On the outside, the Shelby is easily identified by its functional hood vents, hydro-carbon front and rear grille inserts, Shelby lettering and rear Hydro-carbon spoiler. Three visual graphics packages are offered, ranging from “traditional” Shelby stripes to more edgy Shelby checkered flag splash or competition graphics. Under the hood, Shelby American adds stylish hydro-carbon components and is developing an optional performance tune expected to significantly increase horsepower. The post-title package for the 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake starts at $28,995 (662 hp) and $39,995 (850 hp). The wide body option adds another $17,995, not including the base GT500. The 2013 Shelby Focus ST post-title package begins at $14,995 not including the Ford Focus ST and will be limited to 500 per model year. Shelby American is now accepting orders for the limited edition cars. Interested parties should contact their sales team at (702) 942-7325 or visit.

  9. Official Shelby Response "The press release issued by Planet Cobra is a libelous document issued by a dealer who entered into a dealer agreement with Shelby American over four years ago and made substantial profits on orders for Cobra vehicles. Now unfortunately he finds it necessary to sue after Shelby demanded payment on past due invoices. In 2010, Carroll Shelby personally made a substantial personal loan to Mr. Steven Becker, the owner of Planet Cobra, to help him meet his financial obligations. If Mr. Shelby were alive today, he would be terribly disappointed with Mr. Becker. Shelby American will vigorously defend the fictitious claims set forth in Planet Cobra's press release and lawsuit, which reads like it came from a different planet." Joe Conway President Carroll Shelby International
  10. Latest Shelby Performance Parts Boost Style and Superior Handling For 2005-2013 Ford Mustang and Shelby Cars All images available upon request Las Vegas – Sept. 28, 2012 – Shelby Performance Parts, a division of Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) has introduced several new parts to add style and performance to the 2005-2010 Mustang GT, 2005-2013 Mustang and Shelby Mustangs, 2012-2013 Boss 302 and 2007-2013 Shelby GT500. The fresh product lineup features polished aluminum Shelby 4.6L Racing Valve Covers to add some shine to the engine bay, as well as some high performance parts; including a Shelby Aluminum 7 Quart Racing Baffled Oil Pan, Shelby Billet Watts Link and Shelby Rear Shock Tower Braces that will dramatically improve engine performance and vehicle handling capabilities. “Shelby Performance Parts enables Mustang and Shelby owners to tailor their ride for great looks, as well as high performance,” said John Luft, president of Shelby American. “The parts group offers pieces engineered and designed to put our customers well ahead of the pack.” Whether one is transforming their Shelby for the track, or just want to add some tasteful upgrades to the engine bay, the Shelby 4.6L Racing Valve Covers will fit the bill. Made from superior ultra-lightweight aluminum, these valve covers resist heat warp and are designed to seal perfectly against the engine’s heads. These covers also sport the famous Shelby Racing logo engraved onto the top and include all the mounting hardware needed for a simple bolt-on installation for 2005-2010 Mustang GT and 2007-2008 Shelby GT’s. Attacking corners on the track, aggressive braking and spirited driving on a winding road can potentially create oil starvation to the stock oil pump, introducing air into the engine’s oiling system and dangerously dropping oil pressure. The Shelby Aluminum 7 Quart Racing Baffled Oil Pan will prevent this problem with innovative trap doors that close during hard cornering and braking to keep the oil pickup tube completely submerged at all times. The pan is designed to fit any 2007-2012 Shelby with the Ford GT500 5.4L engine without clearance issues and has the capacity to hold seven quarts of oil. The Shelby Billet Watts Link is a must-have for serious enthusiasts who are looking to dramatically tighten up their suspension for competitive driving. This setup allows the live rear axle of a Shelby or Mustang to move vertically while preventing lateral motion, which decreases chassis roll in and out of hard corners. CNC cut out of high grade billet aluminum, the Shelby Billet Watts Link is completely street friendly, yet strong enough to withstand the abuse of all types of driving. The piece will fit 2005-2013 Ford and Shelby Mustang coupes, as well as the 2012-2013 Boss 302 Mustang, and comes with all the necessary mounting hardware. In addition to the Watts Link, Shelby American is offering a Shelby Rear Shock Tower Brace that bolts directly onto the rear shock towers to further stiffen the chassis and enhance handling characteristics of a Mustang or Shelby. The brace helps prevent the chassis from deflecting in and out of corners and also during hard launches. Available in a powder coat silver or natural finish, the Shelby Rear Shock Tower Brace can be installed using simple hand tools to any 2005-2013 Mustang or Shelby and can also be welded in for permanent installations. “Whether you’re upgrading your Shelby to be a mean contender on the track or just looking to add some shine to your engine bay, we’ve got you covered,” added Shelby Performance Parts Vice President Jer Gervasi. “Our customers expect top-of-the-line quality from the Shelby brand. The parts in this lineup are all made with the highest quality lightweight aluminum and are superior in strength and functionality. Our Shelby Performance Parts team is committed to designing, manufacturing and delivering parts that will outperform the competition.” All of the new parts available at www.shelbyperformanceparts.com or by calling (702) 405-3500.
