Number 96 of 300 Built: 1999 Shelby Dodge Durango SP-360 Super Pursuit

It isn’t often that I stumble onto a (ostensibly) production car that I’ve never seen nor heard about…but it happened again. This next thing is #96 of 300 built from 1999-2000 of the limited Shelby Durango SP-360 Super Pursuit. Shelby took the basic Durango (the Dodge, not the Ford) in viper blue, added a Kenne Bell (who is not a country singer…despite my initial assumptions) supercharger to the 5.9 liter Magnum V8 for 360 hp, added custom wheels, suspension, bumpers…and finished the masterpiece with a splash of white racing stripes running the length of the vehicle. The end result is an almost 5000 lb vehicle that can hit 60mph in 7.1 seconds and reach 142 mph…impressive for 1999, and almost unheard of.

I have a very rare collectible 1999 Dodge Shelby Durango SP-360 “Super Pursuit” with only 51,000 miles. This car is #96 out of only 300 made. A lot of these were shipped to the Middle East therefore only about 100 or less are left in the U.S.

This very unique Shelby was built with speed and handling in mind just like every other Shelby, the SP-360 was the first to start the performance SUV era. The car is equipped with a 5.9-liter Magnum V8, bolted to the motor is a Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharger pushing an amazing 360 horsepower, the power is pushed threw a 4-speed automatic transmission. the car also has a catback exhaust with equal length headers. As for the suspension and brakes, the car has Stillen six-piston front calipers that grab onto drilled and ventilated rotors. The whole truck is lowered about three inches as it rides on Edelbrock IAS shocks. The car has a comfortable yet stiff ride which makes the car a lot of fun to drive. The car is riding on 20-inch wheels wrapped in 255/35ZR sport tires.

As for the exterior the truck also has a very aggressive hood with non-functional air scoops as well as a custom front fascia with mesh grilles and integrated fog lamps and side skirts that made this Durango look even lower. The low rear valance housed the openings for large dual exhausts. The interior on the other hand has 6 racing seats with three rows (this was a very limited option) The seats are Cerullo leather with Carroll Shelby signature embroidery. Additional gauges for boost and fuel pressure can be found on the A-pillar. The entertainment system includes an LCD flip-down television with an original VCR in the back. The interior also features carbon-fiber trim lining the dash and a Shelby signature plaque

We are currently the second owner and have owned the car for over 15 years. We had bought the car in 2005 from its first owner with 42,000 miles. Over the past 15 years, we have put only 9,000 miles, the cars been kept in an amazing condition and have always been well maintained. I have had my mechanic currently disconnect the supercharger to preserve its condition since the car is only driven once or twice a month (the supercharger is still installed but not connected to run, which can be reconnected) the car will be taken to my mechanic to have the supercharger reconnected and maintained soon. The paint is in excellent condition, but the roof rack slides and the hood were made from a different material therefore the clear coat has chipped off on those two parts (can be recoated).
