Once you’ve purchased your first Ford Mustang, you realize immediately that you have
collected a piece of American Musclecar history. What you may not be fully aware of, however,
is a rich tradition of taking your “muscle” up to the next level through one of the great
conversions and modification packages available. Here’s a little insight into some of the great
partners that do this work.
Carroll Shelby began his career exactly where you might expect it, on the racetrack. From there,
he began his lifelong love of soupedup cars, and developing his own muchloved Shelby Cobra
which he licensed from the British AC Motorcars. He then brought his highperformance talents
to Ford with the very first Mustang in 1965 and has been a part of our family ever since. Shelby
consistently provides some of the fastest, sexiest, and mostpowerful Mustangs on the market.
Much like Carroll Shelby, Steve Saleen began started his career on the racetrack. From there
he began Saleen Autosports in 1983. In 1985 he created the very first Saleen Mustang with a
supercharged engine and gained much notoriety by using said Mustang to win the incredibly
challenging 24 Hours of Moport race. This notoriety propelled him and Saleen Autosports into
an dynasty of amazing and coveted Mustangs that still dominate the roadways to this day.
