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.
