The Ford Shelby GT500, often regarded as one of the most iconic American muscle cars created by the late Carroll Shelby, captivated this car lover from the very beginning. Starting out in 1965, the Shelby Mustang was brought to light to fill the racing void in Ford’s lineup and has been a star ever since. Having taken a break with production in 1970 Rob’s love for this car was made a reality when it was reintroduced in 2007.
Rob picked up this example of Carroll Shelby’s masterpiece in 2011, after owning many mustangs, and got straight to work, bringing the style of the retro Shelby into fruition by adding the tungsten grey racing stripes and the Cervins rear tail lights circa 1968 GT500. Keeping the American muscle alive Rob tastefully fitted the car with genuine Ford Racing parts including axle back mufflers and short throw shifter. With a little upgrade to the supercharger pulley and some additional air flow with the JLT cold air intake, the tune from the Mustang Shop brought Rob’s car to push 630HP.
With all the additional goods putting down so much power, Rob decided it was time to bring his grip in check by special ordering a set of Shelby America wheels in 20×9 front and 20×10 rear. A small amount of gap reduction with the Eibach lower springs made it a little easier to throw the American muscle car into corners. With the history of the car and the love that Rob has for the Shelby Mustang it’s no wonder this car has become what it is today.
