HISTORY OF THE CAN-AMS: IN 1989. SHELBY INTRODUCED THE SHELBY-DODGE CAN-AM CONCEPT AND THE SHELBY-DODGE VIPER CONCEPT. TWO CARS WHICH WILL FOREVER BE IN THE MINDS OF THOSE LUCKY ENOUGH TO DRIVE OR OWN ONE. SHELBY DESIGNED THE CAR USING THE 3. 3L V6 ENGINE AS A BASE (NOTE: IN 1989 THE GENERAL PUBLIC HAD NOT YET OWNED THE 3. 3 WHICH CAME OUT FOR THE 1990 MODEL YEAR). HE WANTED A CAR WHICH WHEN USED IN A RACE. WOULD SHOW WHO THE BEST DRIVER WAS NOT WHO HAD THE LARGEST POCKETS. ACCORDING TO BRIAN BENNETT (ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE ON EARTH LUCKY ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY OWN ONE OF THESE COOL CARS) SHELBY ORIGINALLY PLANED TO MAKE TWO VERSIONS OF THESE CARS. A 255 HP AND 500 HP MODEL. BRAIN BENNETT WRITES THAT "THE PLAN AS I UNDERSTAND IT WAS TO BUILD 200 CARS. EACH WITH IT'S OWN NUMBERED SHELBY 'DASH PLAQUE'. THIS WOULD ALLOW DECENT SIZED SCA CLUB RACING FIELDS. AND STILL ENABLE THE SHELBY PRO SERIES TO RUN SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH THE ONLY ALTERATION TO THE CAR BEING THE SWAPPING OF A GNARLY 500HP MILL INTO THE CHASSIS AND SOME AERO TWEAKS. THE CLASS THAT THESE CARS WERE TO RACE IN WERE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED SO THAT THESE CARS WOULD ONLY RACE AGAINST EACH OTHER. AND NO ENGINE MODIFICATIONS WERE ALLOWED OUTSIDE OF GEAR RATIOS ON THE TRANS. THESE ENGINES HAD SPECIAL SHELBY SEALS ON THEM. AND COULD ONLY BE REPAIRED BY SHELBY. THE IDEA IS THAT SINCE ALL THE CARS IN THIS CLASS ARE IDENTICAL. THE DRIVERS SKILL WOULD BE EVIDENT BY THE WAY EACH DRIVER WINS/LOSES. ONLY 100 OF THSES 3. 3L V6 SHELBY ENGINES WERE EVER BUILT. OF THESE 100. 76 WERE PUT INTO THE 76 SHELBY CAN-AMS (ALL THATE WERE EVER MADE). THE REST WERE KEPT AS SPARES. NO TRUE SPARE PARTS WERE REALLY EVER MADE. AND PARTS WERE NOT REALLY OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC OR RACING TEAMS. AND SINCE BREAKING ONE OF THE SHELBY ENGINE SEALS MADE IT AGAINST THE RULES TO RACE YOUR 3. 3. TEAMS GENERALLY NEVER WANTED TO BUY PARTS AND BREAK THE SEALS TO DO A REPAIR. THE CAR ORIGINALLY SOLD FOR $35. 00 AND WOULD BASICALLY ARRIVE AT YOUR DOOR IN A LARGE BOX. AND YOU'D HAVE TO BUILD IT YOURSELF. THIS MEANT THAT MANY PEOPLE DID NOT WANT OR COULD NOT BUY THIS CAR. AS AFTER $35. 00. YOU'D STILL HAVE TO BUILD THE CAR (WHICH TOOK BOTH TIME AND MONEY IF YOU HIRED SOMEONE TO BUILD IT. MR. BENNETT SAID THAT MORE RECENTLY. 27 OF THESE CARS WERE SHIPPED DOWN TO SOUTH AMERICA FOR A RACING SERIES DOWN THERE. AND MANY OF THE FEW SPARE ENGINES/ PARTS WENT WITH THEM. THAT MAKES IT EVEN HARDER FOR OWNERS IN THE US TO GET PARTS. AND IMPOSSIBLE FOR NON-OWNERS TO GET THE PARTS. FOR SAY. THEIR 3. 3 PROJECT. ACCORDING TO A SMALL ARTICLE IN THE USA TODAY IN 1989. THESE CARS WERE MAKING 250 HP AND HITTING 160 MPH. "THE CAR WAS MADE 150-200 LBS HEAVIER THAN IT NEED BE THAT WAS FOR SAFETY AND NO ONE HAS SO MUCH AS BROKEN A TOE NAIL IN ONE YET. "SHELBY HIMSELF IN AND ESPEN INTERVIEW . C1993 THE TRANS WAS A CUSTOM BUILT ASSEMBLY MADE BY SHELBY'S SHOP. DESIGNED TO TAKE 200 TO 700HP. THE TRANS WAS A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE CHASSIS. PERHAPS WHY THE CARS BROUGHT DOWN TO SOUTH AMERICA KEPT USING IT WITH THE CHASSIS WHEN THEY STARTED USING NISSAN 3. 5'S IN PLACE OF THE 3. 3'S.
