Shelby American is the outfit started by Carroll Shelby that produces continuation Cobra cars. It also massages some Ford products with enhancements and a healthy dose of Shelby regalia. The latest offering is the Ford Shelby F-250 Super Baja, a Super Duty quad cab rocking the company’s 6.7-liter “Power Stroke” turbodiesel engine, but then given a uniquely Shelby off-road treatment.
In terms of hardware, Shelby American bolts up a suspension package suitable for massive rolling stock. The Super Baja rolls on a set of 37-inch tires, with clearance provided by a combination of Fox shocks and a BDS Suspension lift kit, along with supporting mods to fit these pieces. The engine is unaltered, but given its earth-quaking torque, that’s probably fine.
There are also extensive appearance and utility mods. It’s hard to miss the massive light bars, the chase rack bolts on the bed, a ram air inlet and extractor vents on the hood, rock sliders, powder-coated front and rear steel bumpers, and so on. The interior features recovered seats with retro-style stitching and all the Shelby embroidery you’d expect. Pair all this kit with the traditional Shelby stripes and badging, and it’s an imposing truck.
With a suitably imposing price. The limited-production run of 250 units will start at $125,805—including the donor Lariat Ultimate 4×4, which is already hovering in the $70,000 range.
