KC Air Show Charities and Children’s Mercy Kansas City joined forces with Shelby American to give one lucky winner an opportunity to drive away in a new one-off, supercharged wide-body Shelby Super Snake named the “Snake Charmer.” This sweepstake is raising funds for charities that help children with health problems.
“When you enter to win the sweepstakes for the Shelby ‘Snake Charmer,’ you not only have a chance to win this one-of-a-kind car, you also have a 100% chance of helping kids,” said Kerry Floyd, KC Air Show Charities special projects director. “Beyond that, because the proceeds from this sweepstakes benefit these two great charities, all ticket purchases are eligible for tax deduction. This sweepstake is a win-win for all parties involved.”

Carroll Shelby is well known in the Ford community for his well-decorated racing career and his collaborations with Ford Motor Company on the legendary GT-40 and Mustang. What might be less known about Shelby is that in 1941 he was a pilot instructor for the Air Force and had a huge amount of respect for our service men and women.
In September of 2021, Shelby was given the call sign “Snake Charmer” by the US Air Force in commemoration of what would have been his 98th birthday. The combination of his Air Force career and car designing experience gave birth to this one-of-a-kind Mustang with his “Snake Charmer” call sign as the name.
Though the Super Snake is enough of a prize for anyone, there are a couple of other unique items in this giveaway package!
The winner will also receive a custom matching golf cart named “Lil Charmer” which is also designed by Shelby designer Vince LaViolette. To complete the look, there is also a Breitling Aviator Watch and Cockpit USA Mustang A-2 jacket.
