For any Mustang enthusiast driving 2,000 kilometres across India in vintage Mustangs and rare Shelbys would be the ultimate adventure, the ultimate roadtrip. It’s a trip I could not even conceive putting my beloved car through and yet a team of enthusists have done it. An epic journey from Mumbai to Jodhpur often over very rough terrain with ten amazing Mustangs including a Bullitt GT390, Shelby GT500 and Shelby GT500 KR. Now a documentry is being finalised and we have the trailer for it after the jump.
It’s something I know I’ve always wished for though thought it could never happen, a Mustang themed reality TV show. But things may be about to change. R&A Motorsports have come up with a pilot for a series they call ‘American Pony Builders‘ hosted by R&A Motorsports shop manager Jeff Yergovich
It’s been a while since I’ve featured a reader ride and it’s not because I’ve not been getting some great people writing in. I’ve seen some amazing projects this year alone, I’ve just not found the time to post about all of them. This project is something special though sent in by Christopher who is building his own 1967 Super Snake Fastback.
It’s not too often original Shelby GT500’s come up for auction in Australia but that is just what happened in October at the Shannons Motorclassica Collector Vehicle Auction in Melbourne. The car in question was 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in Nightmist Blue with White Le Mans stripes and Black Deluxe interior.
Earlier this month the Classic Recreations team ventured to the 2010 SEMA show in Las Vegas to make good on an announcement owner Jason Engel made a year before at the same event. In 2009 Jason announced plans to work with Shelby American on the first series of officially licensed 1967 Shelby Mustang continuation cars. This year however both Ford Motor Company and Cobra Electronics invited Classic Recreations to display cars in their respective booths. The car from the Ford display was also called out as an “Ultimate Street Car” when Optima batteries asked Engel to participate in the annual Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational (OUSCI) track shootout and television show at Spring Mountain Raceway in Pahrump, Nevada, the Saturday after SEMA.
Off the back huge success of the Dyancorn 1967 bodies it was only a matter of time before the company know for it’s licensed reproduction bodies offered a 1965-66 version. It makes sense.
