2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Consumer Guide Automotive

Just how many ponies does a pony car need? Well, certainly not 760 ….

That will undoubtedly raise the eyebrows of my fellow enthusiasts, to whom “too much power” is a phrase bordering on blasphemy. But honestly, it’s really hard to make use of that much power on the street … at least, for very long.

Cheap Wheels

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2015 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Carroll Shelby tweaked an incredibly diverse group of cars in his long career. Many of them are coveted high-dollar collectibles, but a much smaller subset provides interesting candidates for a set of cheap wheels. Consider the 1988-89 Dodge Lancer Shelby, a second attempt to modify Dodge’s K-car-based four-door hatchback into a European-style sport sedan.

2016 Ford Shelby GT350

Particularly from the windshield forward, the new Ford Shelby GT350 is far removed from its Mustang origins. Not only is the front-end sheetmetal actually aluminum, but styling is revised and the engine is modified to produce substantially more power than the one used in the Mustang GT. Shown is the race-focused GT350R version, which can be identified by its red (rather than grey) grille badge and taller rear spoiler. This is one serious track car that still manages to be street legal.

Most people will likely look at the Ford Shelby GT350 and think “Mustang,” but those in the know will recognize it as something far more special than that.

Shelby GT350 Mustang

After Ford introduced an all-new Mustang as a 2015 model, it was only a matter of time before hotter performance versions showed up. Ford unveiled one of the first of those at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show: the Shelby GT350. The name should be familiar to even casual Mustang fans: Legendary race-car- and performance-car mogul Carroll Shelby produced a series of performance Mustangs in the Sixties that remain some of the most sought-after pony cars of all time.

1970 Shelby GT-500 Fastback

This 1970 GT-500 is one of only 286 produced.

Note: This article is reprinted from the April 2014 issue of Collectible Automobile

Carroll Shelby’s—and ultimately Ford Motor Company’s—dream of building a super Mustang had been realized in full well before the last snake-badged “ponycars” were retailed in 1970. Starting in 1965 with an improved 289-cid V-8 and suspension, brake, and chassis enhancements, the GT-350 became an instant Sports Car Club of America class champion. That the white-and-blue fastback-body Shelbys looked so much like mass-market Mustangs made them great “halo” cars.

Carroll Shelby with a GLH-S bearing his name, circa 1986.

When it came to light that Carroll Shelby had passed away last week, it brought to mind the first time I had the pleasure of meeting this chicken farmer turned automotive legend.
