News Shelby Trucks Outsell Mustangs. True Story.

Shelby Trucks Outsell Mustangs. True Story.

Trucks taking over from cars is a phenomenon that is affecting Shelby volumes.

  • Shelby builds about 300 Mustangs per year.
  • Shelby builds about 750 F-150s per year.
  • Demand is so high that Shelby outsources 70% of the truck builds.

We’ve all read dozens of stories on the all-new 760-horsepower Ford Mustang GT500 in late 2019 and dozens more on the GT350 earlier in the year. We occasionally hear about 700-horsepower Shelby Mustang GT and the 825-horsepower Super Snake but other than the story on the F-150 Super Snake Sport unveiled as a concept at the 2019 SEMA show, the trucks don’t get the same amount of attention.

Attention from the media, that is. As reported, roughly 75% of all Shelby-modded vehicles are F-150 full-size Super Trucks. While the number of trucks ordered and built is impressive, it is important to note that this data does not include the Shelby GT350 and GT500 currently assembled at Ford’s Flat Rock, Michigan plant.

This Shelby truck trend started back in 2015 and has steadily grown. In fact, so popular are the upgraded F-150’s that Shelby’s outsourcing 70% of the truck builds to Elkhart, Indiana, to a  shop called Tuscany.

Shelby is limiting production of the Super Snake Sport 250 units for the US and Canada. Odds are they’ll be gobbled up quite quickly.
