Shelby American was in Seattle in July 2019 awarding Bill Pierre Ford a trophy for the highest sales volume in the U.S. That same car was there. However I met someone who was there that told me that the car was his and he let Shelby use it as a mule for testing. I don't remember his name but I have a decent amount of photos of it from back then. Not sure how many it will let me upload at once. Kind of surprised to see it up on here. As you can see only the rear was a wide body at the time.

I have some additional very interesting cars from that same event. Includes the dealership getting the award.

You are correct the car was owned by a Shelby Salesman named Matt. Shelby used his car for prototype of the widebody package.

There were some amazing cars at that event!!

Is it widebody in the front now too, or still normal? Kind of hard to tell. I think still normal?
Shelby American makes absolutely the best wide bodies! smooth flowing, not bolted on like an after thought like on the Mopars.

The front remains factory for the GT350, which is wider than a standard GT body.

I agree, they do it right!

Stupid question, why are the hood pins mounted so far up on the hood?

Is that real metal in the expanded fender arches or just fiberglass?

Honestly not sure if they use one or the other, or a combination of both.

If it’s all metal, that’s some skills for sure.
