Shelby wide body kits for 2005-2009 Ford Mustang

A slice of Shelby American, known as Shelby Performance Parts, has now officially announced some sweet body panel offerings for the 2005 – 2009 Ford Mustang.  Back in January, we showed you a 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake (at the NAIAS) equipped with the Shelby Wide Body Kit, and it was just shy of completely awesome.  After everyone saw the candy red Super Snake Mustang at the show, the requests soon started to flood in for the kit.  The neat thing about this offering is those who want to get it installed don’t have to send their Mustang off to one of the Shelby facilities in Las Vegas; the kits can be installed by any reputable custom or body shop of choice.

The 2005 – 2009 Shelby Wide Body kits for the Ford Mustang are available in two versions: a complete package, which has both front and rear panels, adding 6″ of fender to the rear…and there’s also a rear-only option, if one doesn’t want to add any flare to the front quarter panels. Also included with both packages are a Shelby Billet fuel door, all necessary installation instructions, special tools, all the hardware required for the install.

1967 Ford Mustang Convertible shell now available

Just about two months ago, we showed off the “new” 1965 Ford Mustang shell blessed by Ford, and now, there’s more to the story here as we near Christmas time.  Today, we read the 1967 Ford Mustang convertible will also join the 1965 Ford Mustang shell already in-demand, and is the fourth reproduction body officially licensed by Ford Motor Company.  The price for this Dynacorn classic Ford Mustang shell?  Just shy of $16K, so doing that restomod of your dreams really isn’t going to break the bank, getting it done right.

So what makes this one so special?  Well, to make the cut, these aftermarket players & pieces have to meet (and often exceed) the fit, finish, and quality of the original production shells & panels.  Well, that should be a decent feat to meet, we think, as there has been a great deal of technological and manufacturing refinement since the mid-1960s.  All this aside, the very notion these shells are becoming commonplace in the time of classic Ford Mustang scarcity (at least non-hack jobs) is pretty cool.  We’re pretty pumped up about it!

Newly New – the 1965 Ford Mustang

So what happens when “the one” Ford Mustang you’ve always been after just continues to remain elusive?  Give up?  Never.  Hit up custom craft car makers?  Maybe.  Get the shell straight from Ford, licensed, and ready to slap parts on?  Yes.  Wait…what?

You read right.  Ford’s opened up a whole new door for the rest of us that aren’t into completely ad hoc kits or can’t find that perfect resto-mod opportunity by offering up 1964½, 1965, or 1966 Ford Mustang body shells made from high-quality automotive-quality steel, surpassing material strength found in the original production Mustangs.

So when are these awesome pieces hitting the (after)market?  Quite soon–November 1st, 2011 at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.  Keep reading for the full scoop in the official Press Release from Ford Motor Company.

The 2010 Ford Mustang has already become the benefactor of several awesome aftermarket applications and treatments.  From the ROUSH 427R to the latest Steeda Q-Series, we have seen some very impressive showing from some key aftermarket players, further keeping Mustang fans equipped for the strip and road course.  At the recent 3rd Annual Ford Racing Invitational at Milan Dragway in Michigan, Ford announced the forthcoming availability of white keyed body parts for boy racers based on the 2010 Mustang.  These rare shells are compliant with most any class, so there’s surely a niche to be filled for the racing freaks out there.  Orders for the parts will start in mid-July and will continue through the fall, with orders being delivered sometime in December.  Aside from the newly-announced exterior panels, a number of interior trim and wiring kits will also be available for racers to fit into any desired class they wish to compete in.  If you happen to know any hardcore Mustang racers out there, the chance to upgrade to some novel paneling and tech is here!
