Carroll Shelby to introduce Shelby-modified Ford Expedition
Los Angeles, California – Carroll Shelby International announced that it will unveil a limited edition Shelby Ford Expedition concept vehicle at the 2004 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas in November. This new Shelby SUV will provide a number of performance, handling and styling upgrades over the standard Ford Expedition model.
The Shelby Ford Expedition model will offer dynamically-designed exterior body accents, graphics and ground-effects, enhanced interior styling and electronics package, high-performance tires mounted to the latest state of the art custom wheels, suspension and handling upgrades, and all driven by a Shelby tuned high performance engine package.
“This is another step in our continuing partnership with the Ford Motor Company to develop specialty niche performance products that promote the powerful Carroll Shelby tradition and heritage and we expect these products to generate significant revenues for our company,” said John Luft, President of Carroll Shelby International, Inc.
“The Expedition is the first in a series of products and concepts we have on the drawing board,” says company CEO Carroll Shelby. “Many of these concepts include new sports cars, pickups, and some exotic automotive products that we know will surprise and excite enthusiasts worldwide.”
The production schedule, quantity and/or price for the Shelby Ford Expedition concept vehicle are yet to be determined.
