Drivers’ Choice Awards: Crate Engine Supplier

Last year we kicked off our second annual RCN Drivers’ Choice Awards program to recognize the top products and services in the world of replicas, unique classics and homebuilt cars. We posted 20 categories ranging from tools, tires and brakes, all the way up to complete turnkey vehicles and builder packages, and you voted for your favorites. Unfortunately we were not able to hand out our Drivers’ Choice Awards in person at the SEMA Show with its 2020 cancellation, but we look forward to recognizing our winners over the coming weeks here at rcnmag.com.

While the kit car hobby may have gotten its start using refurbished components and donor vehicles, it’s no secret that many folks prefer to go with brand new components today. The manufacturers have taken note as well, and there are tons of great Ford and GM crate engine options our there today for your kit or replica build. We had five engine builders nominated in the Crate Engine Supplier category of our 2020 Drivers’ Choice Awards, and are pleased to announce that Carroll Shelby Engine Company received the gold medal.

Carroll Shelby Engine Company is located in Windsor, California, and is part of the DenBeste family of brands. The company provides a Shelby-licensed selection of brand new Ford crate engines, ranging from 450 hp 289 ci Windsors, all the way up to 750 hp aluminum 427 ci FEs. Carroll Shelby Engine Company also sells a variety of performance parts, raw engine blocks and Cobra parts as well.

Congratulations to Carroll Shelby Engine Company, along with Blueprint Engines and Craft Performance Engines, who took the silver and bronze medals respectively in the Crate Engine category.

Thanks to all who voted, along with all the manufacturers nominated in this category!
