I did miss the supper charger part so you got to get in your 'nanner-nanner-nanner' shot.

I also missed where is was said it was a Shelby 500.

For what it is worth:

If it was a Stock GT it would have been 300hp.

If it was a GT with a supper charger kit it could be anything from around 400hp or more.

They even had SC kits for the V6 and I think you could order your V6 to mostly look like a Shell. I believe Roush was pushing V6 supercharged Mustangs at about that time.

If a stock Shelby 500 you are correct and it would have been 500hp at 4008lbs.

Well done!

For what it is worth if it was a Shelby 500 convertible test stats were:

Zero to 60 mph: 4.8 sec
Zero to 100 mph: 11.1 sec
Zero to 130 mph: 20.6 sec
Street start, 560 mph: 5.4 sec
Standing -mile: 13.4 sec @ 108 mph
Top speed (governor limited): 155 mph
Braking, 700 mph: 170 ft
Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.86 g

Most Shelby's had big hood stripes but not always. I think the Shelby stripes were an option on the lesser Mustangs. The GT40 style wheels were mostly a Shell wheel if I recall correctly and a reasionable tell.
