With the harness belts on the front seats and the full rollcage, our photo car looks like a race car. However, Shelby left the audio systems, power brakes, power steering, power windows, and full amenities intact. The rear seat delete and glass front fenders subtract weight; apparently the addition of the rollcage moved the weight back up to stock. That's OK, as the plan is to make the Prudhomme Edition a street/strip player.
