Well guys, let me start off by saying i have visited the holy land. I turned 21 and took a trip out to vegas. And i decided to stop by the Shelby Museum and Assembly plant. If any of you get the chance, i STRONGLY recommend you go out there. They offer free tours of the museum, free tours of the area where they build the Shelby cobras (no photos allowed), and they take you through the area where they assemble the Gt500 Super Snakes, and GT1000's. (Also no photos but i still snuck a couple from inside) here are some photos from the museum part, and outside the building itself. Also the main attraction is Carol Shelby's very first Cobra he ever built, which he was offered $25 million for, but refused to sell. (the blue cobra pictured) theres also a few others that i'm sure you all know what they are.

From what i gathered, You buy the GT500, bring it to That shelby Location, and for a nice Chunk of change, they'll swap it over to put out the 1100 horses. And it's very cramped in there, so icouldn't really get that good of angles on the cars. /: but if you see that grabber blue one, that's their wide body style. It's got flared fenders and body lines, which i've never seen before. They offer that for the V6 models too (the wide body) i think you give them your car, and they'll do the body kit swap for like 10 grand.

Yeah, one of only a few. The guy was explaining how back in the day dudes would take it to the track after renting it, take it back home and swap out the shelby motor with their v6 mustang, and bring it back to the rental place. I'll post more photos if i can get the ME app on my phone.

Here are the ones off my phone, couple of different angles, couple of different vehicles. Only one not at the Shelby Museum, is the Eleanor mustang. That's the car they drove from Gone in 60 seconds. That car is located at a private collection in the Harris Casino.

Could i turn a 13 5.0 into a GT350 if i take it to the shelby factory?
Yes... For a boat load of money. I think the conversion was 25/30k above the price of the car ...
Yikes.
