Ford to build Shelby GT350 Mustang model in 2016

June 21, 2013 Mustang News No Comments


Here we go again with the he said/she said game of rumors and reporting on the next model coming down the Ford pipeline.  Just last week the rumor was Ford would be dropping the Shelby GT500 moniker for a naturally aspirated SVT Cobra and now the Shelby GT350 Mustang model is set to return for 2016, one year after the 2015 Ford Mustang debuts.

We actually reported on the Shelby GT350 model returning back in December of 2012 as Shelby enthusiast and collector Stephan Becker predicted the return was 100% true.  He claimed before Carroll Shelby passed away he signed the deal with Ford to produce a Shelby GT350 model.  It seems Becker was right but just one year off and it makes sense to debut the Shelby GT350 model in 2016 as Ford would not want to take anything away from the launch of the all-new redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang. … Continue Reading

March 13, 2013 Mustang News No Comments


In 1967 Carroll Shelby not only partnered with Ford on the GT350 and GT500 he was also the West Coast distributor for Goodyear tires.  During production of the GT500’s that year Shelby was approached by Goodyear to take part in a promotional event for its new Thunderbolt line of economy tires.

After throwing around ideas one thing led to another and Shelby agreed to use a GT500, number 544 off the assembly line to be exact.   Instead of using the stock police interceptor 428 ci engine found in the GT500, Shelby instructed Fred Goodell, Shelby American’s chief engineer on loan from Ford to prepare a special engine for the GT500 which turned out to be the mother of all 427’s. … Continue Reading
