Cobras and Mustangs are sexy, but it’s trucks that keep Shelby American muscling along
Though famous for Cobras and Mustangs, Shelby American produces many more Ford F-150 and Raptor-based pickup trucks each year.
Shelby Automotive may be known for its Cobras and Mustangs, and rightly so, but when it comes to Shelby Automotive as a business, its primary products are pickup trucks.
Blasphemy? Not really. Shelby American produces around 300 Cobras and Mustangs each year, but 80 percent of its business (read financial income) comes from the 800 or so Ford F-150 and Raptor pickup trucks it produces.
We use the word produces because Shelby American has gained status as an original equipment manufacturer, so extensive are the modifications it makes to Mustangs and F-150s, let alone its built-from-scratch Cobra business.
