Up For Auction / Supercharged Shelby only $17,500
« on: November 17, 2020, 05:52:52 PM »
Not mine https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/d/valencia-shelby-durango-sp-360/7228750330.html

I have a very rare collectable 1999 Dodge Shelby Durango SP-360 “Super Pursuit” with only 51,000 miles. This car is #96 out of only 300 made. A lot of these were shipped to the Middle East therefore only about 100 or less are left in the U.S.

This very unique Shelby was built with speed and handling in mind just like every other Shelby, the SP-360 was the first to start the performance SUV era. The car is equip with a 5.9-liter Magnum V8, bolted to the motor is a Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharger pushing an amazing 360 horse power, the power is pushed threw a 4-speed automatic transmission. As for the suspension and brakes the car has Stillen six piston front calipers that grab onto drilled and ventilated rotors. The whole truck is lowered about three inches as it rides on Edelbrock IAS shocks. The car has a comfortable yet stiff ride which makes the car a lot of fun to drive. The car is ridding on 20-inch wheels wrapped in 255/35ZR sport tires.

As for the exterior the truck also has a very aggressive hood with non-functional air scoops as well as a custom front fascia with mesh grilles and integrated fog lamps and side skirts that made this Durango look even lower. The low rear valance housed the openings for large dual exhausts. The interior on the other hand has 6 racing seats with three rows (this was a very limited option) The seats are Cerullo leather with Carroll Shelby signature embroidery. Additional gauges for boost and fuel pressure can be found on the A-pillar. The entertainment system includes an LCD flip-down television with an original VCR in the back. The interior also features carbon-fiber trim lining the dash and a Shelby signature plaque

We are currently the second owner and have owned the car for over 15 years. We had bought the car in 2005 from its first owner with 42,000 miles. Over the past 15 years we have put only 9,000 miles, the cars been kept in an amazing condition and has always been well maintained. The Supercharger was recently rebuilt with factory parts about a month ago. The paint is in excellent condition, but the roof rack slides and the hood were made from a different material therefore the clear coat has chipped off on those two parts (can be recoated).

This car is truly amazing and very fun to drive, but sadly it's time for our family to part away from the car and we're hoping it goes to someone that will appreciate it as much as we have.

The asking price was $23,000 but we have lowered it to 17,500 for a quick sale. for any questions or concerns please feel free to call or text at any time!

IMC = Industro-Motive Corporation (IMC) was acquired by Testors in 1970

Model company. Made great detailed models. Testors did a re-release of most of them.

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Early 5R002 photo - Front A Arm bumper?

I wonder if the A arm was lowered further and it was added to slow/prevent the ball joint from hitting it's limit.

Some back story and how Brock rained on Shelby's Toyota parade. I remember Brock saying one time he got info from inside Shelby's camp at which regionals they were going to run the Toyotas and BRE would show up to deny them getting any points.   https://www.hagerty.com/media/people/how-peter-brock-beat-odds-and-carroll-shelby-with-a-hino/

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Recent discussion on Morrison's 67 G.T. 500

I doubt it will ever show up. At least not based on it's original unibody. In the 70s crashed and clapped out cars even Mustangs and Shelbys were bringing good money being crushed and sent to Japan. All of the junk yards were cleaning out and scrapping the scrap. Some new junkyards even sprang up with a new business model. Cars neatly placed in rows sorted by make. They were there for 30-60 days and them they were crushed and hauled to the port. Even later they added a giant wood chipper type machine that they shredded the cars so more fit in the hold.
Yes the Blue Lady is gone but she will rise again from a foreign junkyard and then be "verified" after a lot of the original sheetmetal has been changed.

When I was 19 I got a ticket for street racing in Whittier with my new 1970 Road Runner. We were on the "normal" street racing site just south of Whittier Blve. When the cops stopped us the other guy in his GTO ran and they chased him a few blocks before he gave up.
They were mandatory appearance tickets. I asked to go to school so it wouldn't show up on my license. The judge kinda chuckled and asked the cop what he thought. The cop was OK with it and explained I stopped and was respectful whereas the other guy tried to run. The judge let me go to school and issued a bench warrant for the other guy who decided not show up at court.

Later I worked for the local PD and we'd street race after the night shift. There is an area called Via Verde that was just starting to be developed. Big 4 lane main street and several side roads to new lots but no houses yet. It was in the Sheriffs patrol area and one night he stopped by. Once everybody badged him he said just be gone when he came back after dinner. A few days later there was mention in the briefing that street racing had been observed in the area and everyone should keep and eye out. Hint taken.

I've been slowly piecing together the parts for the trophy. Have the gumball machine and handles that are a 90% match, a nice piece I'm almost tempted to leave all original, but you never know, still looking for the turtle on top, anyone have any leads on one, let me know.

Something from ebay and a spraycan? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2060353.m570.l1312&_nkw=sea+turtle+statue&_sacat=0

Wonder what that does to the "Basic Speed Law" of safe and prudent.
CA has 2 speed laws. Basic and maximum. The maximum says it's illegal to operate a vehicle in CA over 65 mph unless otherwise posted. You can drive up to 65 in a 25 and it will be up to you to prove to the judge it was safe.

Looks Viking blue - completion was overseen by Brock so I imagine it's the color he originally intended for it. https://drivetribe.com/p/bedridden-bodybuilder-1965-shelby-ZdR904tLTReo4duh9Os5iQ?iid=aQPmFYotSlK6BSU2FoYbRA

Get it stripped at the platers (or sandblast) and turn it into a painted one.
