Yes, the 351 Windsor remains inside creation, yet not for creation vehicles. Ford Racing nevertheless sells them.
However Ford is usually seeking methods to create vehicles cheaper, more reliable plus gas effective. Remember Mr Obama keeps signing Executive orders which are eliminating performance vehicles. So to keep fleet averages up, the fuel sucking heavier displacement machines are being dropped.
As for Saleen, he branched out into additional pony vehicles plus because a outcome dropped a some models of Mustangs.
The nearest thing available to the S351 today is the Shelby Super Snake, with a 5.6 engine, super charger plus 2 different choices for horse force 662 hp or 850. Which I never believe are numbers to be laughed at.

The Dodge is cheaper to buy. However when the auto is owned 5 years the over all expense of ownership is less the 4000 $ . Many of that is considering the Challenger can depreciate quicker. It (the Challenger) also offers high projected repairs bills.
I am not certain which 4000 $ value inside savings is value offering up 190 horses.
Then compared to the program GT, I am not certain the additional 50 horses are value paying an additional 9000 $ for (compared to the SRT).
To tell you the truth, I might really stick to the GT Mustang. It is difficult to master 662 HP found on the roads I drive. 420 is insane enough.

Or, we may invest the same amount cash for a restored classic (Shelby GT 350 or 500) plus in the event you take advantageous care of it, you’ll have a auto which not depreciates. In 1972 plus before, Dodge built advantageous vehicles. They intentionally cheapened them inside 1973 plus not recovered.
