Asking build information from Shelby is kind of like asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop...

 

 

....the world may never know....

 

Saving it for the book, right Steve?

I spoke to someone who had one at Carlisle two years ago and it certainly wasn't many! He said 7. Here's a photo from there...

Book???

 

When it comes to company policy, I may have some input but I sure don't write it ;)

Did any of them get to keep their Titles? In the first Articles written about these Cars said they will no longer have a VIN (Track Use Only).

There was one at the 2009 Las Vegas Barrett Jackson auction. It was in the parade and then auctioned. A few pics from then:

I'm pretty sure that the color was what Henry used to say about the T, you can have any color you want, as long as it's black! I have a 1:18 diecast of a silver one, but I don't think that one was ever made? The one I saw in Sturgis a couple years ago was licensed, I'm pretty sure that they were all still street legal fine?

I asked them to walk on that way as the car was coming onto the block and then went down to the other end and snapped a few as they paced the car to its resting point.

I saw a Silver one on Ebay last Year.

That's what I thought too but apparently at least one was Silver???

 

I wonder if the Silver one is a special Ed, or a clone, or something like that...

 

There used to be a guy here on TS forums that had one. It's the one Kali_KR posted the vid of, who had it at the Bash.

 

I haven't seen him around in ages though.

 

There was one in the Warehouse across the lot from the SA Musuem back when I was looking at getting my 2010 Snaked and it wasn't sold, wrapped in plastic so probably the #1 or P car.

That was my Prudhomme car on display at Gaudin the owner does not have one. It's my understanding 7 were built. I don't know colors or how many of the 7 were released to the public for sale?

I am under the impression they were all street legal. I believe they came with a complete set of tires for drag racing (bigs and littles)and then also had Alcoas for the street.

If I remember right, you got a choice when you bought it.

 

Either slicks/drag wheels or Alcoa's. But not both (perhaps you could opt to pay $$$ for the other?)

Prudhomme Shelby's with 800hp tune were not street legal. Cars came with slicks but customers could opt for street tires, do not recall if there was a charge for that. Pretty sure Alcoa's were not offered on the Prudhomme cars.

The extra set of wheels were an option I forgot how much? I bought both sets for my car. Back in 2009 the drag car left the Shelby factory at 725 HP. They just finished making my 2007 GT 500 a SS wide body with street legal 900 HP and installed their hole shot package. This car is beyond amazing best Shelby yet that i have driven by a wide margin makes my 2012 800 HP SS feel slow. I am planning on doing the 900 HP hole shot package to the drag car next year. The whole wide body package along with the extra HP and traction mods wow it's just off the charts.

What is the "hole shot package"?

 

I've never heard of it.

Good question, best I can do is refer you to Frankie or Gil over at the speedshop.

Is it a suspension or engine mod?

Usually when I hear someone talk about "Hole Shot", they are talking about NOS.

Hole shot package is a suspension upgrade installed at the speed shop. When I had the wide body package added to the SS package along with the 900 HP engine mod they also installed suspension mods for traction they call a hole shot package. Really works the whole package is best Shelby yet for me. The guys at the mod shop were great to work with, this was my first trip to the mod shop I was very impressed and really think this snake is best yet for me. The only down side is my other Shelby's feel slow and traction impaired now. LOL the lumpy cams in the 900 HP upgrade feel and sound like an old muscle car.
