Richard’s 815hp 1967 Shelby Super Snake Eleanor Mustang

Richard's 1967 Ford Mustang Super Snake Elenaor GT500

Richard’s build has been one that myself and a lot of other ‘Eleanor’ enthusiasts and builders have looked up to. If one was to build an Eleanor Super Snake clone with no regard for cost than this would be it!

Richard has gone about building the ultimate tribute to the one and only Super Snake that Carroll Shelby built, which I featured a few weeks back.

The car is fortunate enough to have the last Shelby Aluminum 427FE engine built by legendary race engine builder Keith Craft Racing (builder of all the Shelby Super Snake Eleanor Engines). It has been bored and stroked to 482ci. with a T Trim Vortech supercharger. Fast XFI Fuel Injection has been added and it has been dyno’d at 815bhp and 733 ft. lb. torque.

Backed up by a TKO 600 5 speed transmission and a 9” rear coilover axle this car has all the attributes of a modern performance car. The front end has been replaced with coilover suspension and a TCP rack & pinion steering kit. The car is pulled to a halt with Shelby/Baer 13” front disc brakes and 12” rear discs.

What’s astonishing is the only remaining original parts on this car are the doors, glove box door, ash tray and a couple of interior trim pieces. This car is the definition of a ground-up restoration.

Recently Richard has taken his car to various car shows and has won participation and class awards. Often winning over judges is very difficult with an Eleanor clone as a lot of judges are Mustang purists and have no time for Eleanor. So winning even a few awards says something about this car.

Here’s the car’s breakdown. And see below for the dyno video and for more information check out Richard’s site 67shelbysupersnake.com or Richard’s other project the Eleanor World Registry.
