Lot #1320.3 - In 2005, Shelby automobiles and unique performance began development of a high performance truck based on the Ford F150. It was intended to fill the void left when the Lightening was discontinued. Three prototypes were built based on the supercab styleside F150; this is the final one completed before the program was shelved. Truck #003 of 3, the proof of concept vehicle received a special Shelby serial plate for documentation in the Shelby World Registry. The prototype supercharged 5.4 liter engine pounds out 500 lbs. of torque through a 3:73 limited slip rear end. It has Shelby exterior badging, custom front and rear fascias, Shelby GT500 style grill insert, composite hood, new rockers, Tonneau cover and spoiler. The Super Truck was lowered with race inspired suspension and has an overdrive transmission and special Ford racing exhaust. The custom leather interior features Shelby's signature, new door inserts, and captains chairs. Shelby logoed Baer 4-wheel disc brakes with slotted rotors will bring the 22" custom Shelby wheels and Pirelli tires to a stop. Pure muscle and pure Shelby, this "Snake Bit" muscle truck is the ultimate collectible. One of the rarest Shelbys in the world and a piece of history.
