The 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Continuation Is The Second Chance We Thought We’d Never See

Back in 1967, Shelby created the first Shelby GT500 Super Snake. It was outfitted with a GT40 MkII 427 engine that was created exclusively for this car and produced just over 500 horsepower. During testing, the car was able to reach a speed of 170 mph and averaged 142 mph during a 500-mile test. Sadly, due to the car costing twice as much to create as a standard GT500, the car was never mass produced. Only one 1967 GT500 Super Snake was ever constructed. That is until now.

Shelby American is turning back the clock and building the car they should have produced 51 years ago. Introducing the extremely limited continuation edition of the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. These are built from 1967 donor cars with factory VINs and original titles. They will also include an actual serial number from Shelby for the official Shelby registry. Only 10 continuation Super Snakes will be built to order in Pennsylvania for sale through Shelby American.

“Shelby American’s line up of vehicles today is the most diverse in our 56-year history,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “From high-tech modern muscle to off-road super trucks, track day thrill rides and heritage cars like the continuation 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, we offer something for everyone who wants to be best in class.”

The continuation Shelby Super Snake is powered by a 427 cubic-inch V8 with over 550 horsepower. Each car produced will include a 4-speed manual transmission, disc brakes, and signature triple stripes.

Starting price for the continuation 1967 Shelby GT500 is $249,995. Ordering information can be found at shelby.com or by calling 702-942-7325.
