Shelby Performance Parts (SPP), a division of Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI.PK), is now offering the highly sought-after Shelby Wide Body Kit for 2005-2009 Mustang and Shelby models.
The Shelby Wide Body package was unveiled on the 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this January, and is now available through SPP, giving customers the option to buy the kit and have it installed by a local shop of their choosing.
“The Shelby Wide Body Kit, seen on our candy red Super Snake at the North American International Auto Show, resulted in so many requests from Shelby and Mustang owners, we immediately went to work developing a package to meet the demand,” said Shelby Performance Parts Vice President Jer Gervasi. “Now customers can have a Shelby Wide Body Kit customized for their ride, without shipping it to our Las Vegas facilities.”
The kit for 2005-2009 Mustangs and Shelbys is available in two versions. The complete package includes the rear quarter panels that add 6 inches of fender to house up to 13 inch rear wheels, as well as the front quarter panels that allow for 10 inch front wheels. The Shelby Wide Body Kit is also available in a rear-only option. Both packages include a Shelby Billet Fuel Door, installation instructions, special tools and all the necessary hardware for installation. However, the kit requires substantial body and paint work and is recommended to be assembled by a professional body shop.
The Shelby Wide Body Kit was developed exclusively by Shelby American to not only improve styling, but performance as well. With the ability to clear 345 wide rear tires, the Mustang’s power will hook up like never before.
“Built using lightweight fiberglass components and extraordinary craftsmanship, the Shelby Wide Body Kit is built to OEM-quality fit and finish, and seamlessly integrates into the already-menacing Mustang body lines,” added Gervasi. “So I’d recommend warning the neighbors. This thing is scary.”
The rear only package for 2005-2009 Mustangs and Shelbys starts at $3,399, while the four quarter panel kit goes for $5,999, not including wheels and tires. The same packages for 2010-2014 models will be available this summer.
