1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Reborn With Even More Muscle

Reveal

Only 10 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake continuation models are being built, with a starting price of $249,995.

The 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is one of the most legendary muscle cars of all time, and now this classic is being reborn in a limited run of continuation models to ease the wait for the 2020 Shelby GT500 to arrive. Building on the success of the 1968 Shelby Continuation GT500KR announced earlier this year, each Super Snake continuation model will be based on an original 1967 Mustang donor car. Under the hood, buyers can choose from either an aluminum or cast-iron 7.0-liter V8 engine that produces over 550 hp.

That makes it more powerful than the original 1967 model, which is said to have produced 520 hp. Power is sent through a four-speed manual transmission, and each continuation car will have disc brakes and triple stripes like the original. Production will be limited to just ten examples, each containing dashboard plaques signed by Carroll Shelby and Don McCain. “We’re fulfilling the dream of Carroll Shelby and Don McCain,” said Shelby American president Gary Patterson. “Shelby built an engineering study dubbed the ‘Super Snake’ for high-speed tire testing by Goodyear in 1967. When that successful test ended, Shelby American offered it to Mel Burns Ford in So Cal to retail to the public. "

Former Shelby American employee Don McCain approached Shelby about doing a limited run of cars. They carefully studied the idea but sadly, the timing did not work because the car was too expensive. The program never came to fruition, until now. Each GT500 Super Snake continuation car will be built to order and sold through Shelby American with prices starting at $249,995. It may be expensive but getting your hands on an original will set you back a lot more, as Shelby says a collector recently paid over $1.3 million for one.
