I think it was made by Scott Drake. Very tough to find them for sale.

So I'm trying to get one /

Buy the car, exchange the strut tower and resell the car. OK, just kidding! Maybe SA has one that they would sell on their E-bay store. Worth asking.

OK Shelby no go ,e-bay no go . I think I found who made it so I e-mailed them . I may have to do plain B which I don't have . I think it's one of the best strut towers out there .

I assume you got my reply on your PM,but just wondering what car you are going to put one on? I see from your profile you have an awesome looking Supersnake but not unsure which car you want the strut brace for?

I know where this one is; owner might be persuaded to part with it:

You're welcome!!! I had assumed that it was for a different car as I know that one will not fit the Supersnake.

Even if you find one,be careful on wether it will fit if you have a twin screw supercharger.

 

When the brace was available from SPP they stated that it will not fit a car with the twinscrew supercharger.

 

I did fit it on my car with a Roush supercharger but did have to grind a little off the underside of the brace for it to clear the supercharger so just be aware!!!!!

 

I hope you find one!

When American Muscle was selling this item, it went for $279. This one was on a car for a year or so, but it's nearly pristine. I'd suggest the "used" and "desirability" aspects pretty much balance out. Tell me where you are and I'll check out shipping costs over the next few days (imagine what it's like at UPS and USPS offices this time of year!).

Did you say it's for a V6? Better check - that bar may not clear the V6 intake, it's higher than the 4.6! This is why I used the Bullit/V6 brace after I installed my Edelbrock E-Force, the Bullit/V6 brace has more clearance!

YES it well . If you go to the Shelby GTS owners face book you can see one on a V6 .

Shelby should bring back that strut tower? They could have Scot Drake do a new one .It needs one MODIFICATION it needs five holes one more if you have camber plate . The Shelby strut tower is one of the best looking .Think about it you need one

Sadly,there are a lot of items that SPP used to have,the strut brace just being one of them.

They certainly lost out on a lot of cool parts for us when they had Scott Drake connected with them,but as I'm sure that you can see there is very little new and cool coming out from them now,that is one of the many things that Jer did for us and Shelby..........bring lots of new ideas and products on the table!!!!!

 

He is sorely missed by us and SPP,it's just not the same without him!

07-09 parts are all but extinct with 10-14 following behind. It appears all of the recent efforts went into new 2015 Shelby GT.
