This probably isn’t a huge surprise, but with Carroll Shelby’s recent passing, all sorts of cars are becoming ‘collectibles’ that sport the famed visionary’s name.

But this probably isn’t one of them that most enthusiasts relate to Carroll Shelby. During his stint with Dodge between 1982-1989, Shelby worked on various projects helping develop prototype Charger and Viper models. What very few probably knew, was that there was a special edition Dodge Durango that Shelby agreed to lend his expertise and name too. Dubbed the Dodge Durango Carroll Shelby SP360 Edition, it had a limited production run and was powered by a 5.9-liter V8 supercharged engine.

With 360-hp under the hood, this 1999 SP360 Edition Durango isn’t stock as one can see with a quick glimpse of the exterior. It has been lowered thanks to DJM Engineering’s suspension components while Stillen brakes have replaced the factory counterparts. On the inside, Cerullo leather front seats with the Shelby logo can be seen on the headrests. Finishing it all off is carbon fiber interior trim and a specially-numbered “Shelby Signature” plaque. This particular Durango was number-155 and will have no reserve at the Barrett-Jackson auction.
