This is stage 2 of a three part series detailing the restoration of one beaten, neglected, then beaten again 1993 GT and its transformation into a one-of-a-kind ’93 Cobra convertible. Stage 1 included an essential tune-up, new clutch, body work and fresh paint in preparation for stage 2. The horrendous duct taped intake found with the car has been replaced with an SR Performance cold air intake ahead of schedule just so the tired 5.0 could be driven safely to the paint booth.
The 2013 Detroit Motor show was a big deal for Carroll’s company, Shelby American, and Shelby enthusiasts. During the show they unveiled a few surprises, one being an almighty wide-body ’13 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Mustang! Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
We all know the new 5.8L Supercharged DOHC v8 in the 2013 Shelby GT500 is nothing to mess with.

Well, it looks like Ward’s Auto is keen to the new power plant’s amazing power, promoting it to their list of the “Best Engines of 2013” as the lone v8 to make the list.
