 Vehicle Description
For sale in our Chicago showroom is this One of a kind Shelby Can Am. Only 74 ever produced and less than 40 remain. Powered by a 255hp Dodge V6 specially produced by Chrysler for Shelby. Chassis and transmission built to handle 500hp. These cars were known to be fast, fun and safe. They were originally built as an inexpensive way to get into racing. All cars were identically set up with sealed engines as to focus on driver ability. They were raced in SCCA series from 1991-1996. Many of the drivers went on to have successful pro. careers. Today most are raced in Vintage racing. What makes this car special is that its one of only four ever built at the Shelby factory. All others were sold in kit form. This car was purchased direct from Shelby and immediately placed in storage. It has never been raced!! The Shelby Can-Am was developed by automotive legend Carroll Shelby for the Sports Car Club of America. Shelby had ambitions to bring back the Can Am race creating a level playing field resulting in the best driver winning. When these cars were bought they were shipped in pieces that would then have to be put together by the new owner. This specific Can AM is supposedly 1 of only 4 that were put together by Shelby America. In the ealry 2000s 28 were bought and shipped over to South Africa to continue racing. The select few in Africa received new bodies and other upgrades reducing the originality of the cars. This particular one never saw time racing on the track resulting in a clean unabused engine and chassis. It was marketed as an equal opportunity race car, with the strict proviso that no further modifications to the car are permitted. Cockpit provides on-board diagnostic check for engine management, and the pedal system and steering column are adjustable for driver comfort. MIG welded super strong steel space frame supports a-arm front suspension. Aluminum crush box riveted to frame protects drivers feet. Sealed, high-performance Dodge based v-6 engine developed by Shelby engineers to provide at least 30 hours of tract time between rebuilds. Transmission is 4 speed purpose built for the Shelby Can-Am. Body boasts a three piece 0.080 Fiberglass, unique semi open front wheels increase drivers front and side visibility.
