Champion Oil plans to display a special continuation Ford Shelby GT350 at the 2019 Las Vegas SEMA Show in Booth #24629.
The limited-edition car, one of 25 to be built, will feature a 331-ci aluminum engine supplied by the Carroll Shelby Engine Company, which will be coupled to a TREMEC 5-speed transmission with an authentic Shelby shifter.
The suspension is period-correct, as are the brakes. The car body is fully reconditioned and built to 1965 specs to be finished with Ford’s iconic Wimbledon White paint.
Each car gets a special Shelby serial number for inclusion in the official Shelby Registry and a dash bearing Carroll Shelby’s autograph.
Engine options include: a 331-ci Shelby Performance Aluminum Engine, 425 horsepower as standard; a 364-ci Shelby High-Performance Aluminum Engine as an option; or an OEM 289-ci HI-PO as a third option.
Other options include: a 715 Holley or Weber carburetor; a TREMEC T-5 5-speed transmission, an original Top Loader 4-Speed, a T-10 Borg Warner or a C-4 Transmission; four-wheel disc brakes; and air conditioning.
