Well I can't tell you for sure but looking on google images and comparing a 13 mustang and a 12 Shelby the front looks identical except for a larger lower grill and the fogs of course. Looking at all the lines where the good meets the bumper on both they look identical. I saw what happened to your car man and that sucks. From the picture you posted it looks like your car is red candy is that correct? I may know where you can get a whole 2013 gt500 front in red candy.

My mistake I looked up the guys who had one but not a 100 percent sure where I saw that it was a red candy but they do have gt500 parts. They're a bit far from you but I think it would be worth your time to give them a call they may have your whole front fascia if you're looking to upgrade it to gt500. They are called rusty acres and they are here in Jacksonville Florida I know a bit far from you but just another option.

Thinking it might not. This is a description of a cervinis hood from American Muscle and while it fits V6 and GT it says it won't fit gt500. So that means something is different

Yeah I looked at their website first and didn't find that on the Ram type so I checked AM

I'd trust cervinis over AM

As long as front bumper cover is same, shouldn't be an issue I guess.

You might want to check a ford parts website and see if the parts for bumper cover are the same.

So a little update.
The 2012 Shelby GT 500 hood fits our cars, but for it to fit my strut tower brace had to be removed, if not the hood wouldn't close.

The problem is that the Shelby hood has a stiffener that runs along where the brace would normally be, and our
factory hoods do not, giving enough clearance for the hood to close.

Update.
So I finally got my car back with the GT 500 hood. They put the factory grille back in but I'll be putting my AM grilles back in.

Thanks.
Yeah it was less then half the cost of a new OEM hood. I'll post some new pics once I add the stripes and fix my smashed grilles and chin spoiler and re install them.
