For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a beautiful example of a 1969 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. Carroll Shelby is an automotive icon who hooked up with Ford in the mid 60s. Shelbys Mustangs were high horsepower variants of Fords pony car. In 1969, Carroll Shelby cut ties with Ford and ceased production of his very hot GT350s and GT500s, although some unsold 69 models were sold as 70s. Powering this GT500 is its original 428 CID Cobra Jet V8 which was rated at 335 HP. The 428 that powered Shelbys GT500s was a Police Interceptor engine which was a whole lot more fun in a Mustang than a police cruiser. Backing the big block is a 4 speed manual transmission which shifts like new. This Shelby has undergone an extensive professional restoration and looks like it would have when it rolled off the showroom floor. The car is finished in its original Pastel Grey, which shows as white, and blue stripes. The black interior has been completely redone and shows hardly any wear; they even kept the factory 8 track player! Also setting off the GT500 is its unique nose piece, tail lights, and center exit exhaust. The most unique feature may be the Shelby specific hood with flaunts 3 forward and 2 rearward facing scoops. Equipment on these Shelbys was not sparse.
