Rare 2017 Shelby Super Snake F-150 Pickup Heading to Auction
Shelby-built F-150 packs 750 horsepower and a custom look, making for one remarkable muscle truck.
While flipping through the Ford vehicles that will be included in next month’s Mecum Kissimmee auction, we came across this badass 2017 Ford F-150. This pickup has been upfitted by Shelby American with their Super Snake package, introducing a unique look inside and out along with a 750-horsepower engine package. Only 150 examples of this high performance F-150 package were built, so they are very rare and with only 1,655 miles, this Super Snake pickup is practically new.
Super Snake Number 61
Tuscany Motor Company in Indiana built 150 examples of the Super Snake F-150 for Shelby American for the 2017 model year, but this truck had a special purpose. This half-ton Ford was ordered by a collector named Wayne Davis, who specifically ordered Super Snake number 61 as a companion vehicle for his 1966 Shelby GT350 which is also serial number 61. This F-150 was designed to match his Mustang, so it is painted bright white with blue stripes and fitted with some retro-style wheels.
It is the perfect match to a 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustang in white and blue, but for some reason, Davis has decided to sell the truck after only a year of ownership and 1,655 miles of high powered driving. However, his decision to part with the Shelby pickup will allow someone else to grab this supercharged muscle truck.
Super Snake Features
On the outside, the Super Snake package for the Ford F-150 makes the truck a whole lot sportier. The package adds a ram air style hood, a front fascia with functional vents, a unique grille pattern, a new front air dam, a four-piece side kit that includes new sills and flares and a hard tonneau cover. The package also adds a body color rear bumper, tinted windows and 22-inch Shelby Retro wheels.
Under the hood, the Shelby Super Snake pickup adds a blue powder coated supercharger that lifts the output of the 5.0-liter V8 to 750 horsepower with help of a unique cold air intake setup, a larger throttle body and a Borla exhaust system. This engine build makes the Super Snake one of the strongest and quickest of the post-title packages for the F-150, but Shelby also tunes the suspension for better handling and to handle all of that power.
Finally, the interior upgrades are minor, with a serialized dash plaque and package-specific Super Snake badges in the loaded F-150 cabin.
When new, the Shelby Super Snake F-150 had a price of right around $100,000 and with such low mileage, it barely been broken in, so someone is likely going to pay big money for this 750-horsepower truck, but it will be worth every cent to have such a badass pickup.
