MSN Autos recently named the 1967 Shelby G.T.500 the “ultimate muscle car.” The Classic Recreations Shelby G.T.500CR-900S model starts with a legend, and injects it with modern supercar technology. This “Eleanor” features a 427 cubic inch, 900 horsepower F-1R ProCharged engine, advanced multi-link race car inspired suspension, a luxurious interior and modern turn-key reliability. Every Shelby G.T.500CR is coach built at their facility located in Oklahoma. Modern amenities include authentic Shelby Performance Parts, rack and pinion steering, race inspired suspension, oversized disc brakes and more. Engines are hand assembled out of the finest parts available, and with nearly 800 wheel horsepower on tap, the 900S offers supercar performance with a supercar starting price of $199,000 to match.
Installing a Coyote 5.0-Liter, DOHC engine in a late-model Mustang is currently one of the most popular engine swaps available. As a result of the increased popularity, the NMRA recently added a Coyote-only eliminator class to its heads-up drag-race lineup. The merging of Coyotes and lightweight ’86-’93 Mustangs induces huge grins, due to outrageous power to weight ratios that rival most modern supercars. To help customers take advantage of this opportunity, ProCharger has been meticulously working on their own transplant kit for some time now. Long time ProCharger employee Clint Rucker graciously offered up his Coyote powered ’87 LX for R&D. This Fox features plenty of go-fast goodies including a D-1SC ProCharger, BBK headers, Magnaflow exhaust, a T-56 Transmission and 3.73 gears in the rear end. This array of parts is good for 9 psi of intercooled boost and has turned the rollers at 640 wheel horsepower and 504 foot pounds of torque. These are substantial power numbers while also taking into account the vehicles’ modest 2750 pound curb weight.
