The car of the month is classic 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500, available from our friends over at Elite Autos!
This Shelby has the Black Jade exterior with an all black interior, and is an all-numbers-matching 428 Cobra Jet. This classic comes with all the original paperwork and receipts, including documentation from the original purchase in 1969, as well as a Marti Report.
The car came from the factory with a 4-speed Close Ratio Manual Transmission, a 428 CID 8-Cylinder 4V, Cobra Jet/Ram Air, a dealer installed factory alarm, Black Clarion knit/Corinthian vinyl hi-back bucket seats, a 3.50 Traction-Lok axle ration, and much more!
This Shelby also comes fully equipped with power front disc brakes, power steering, power ventilation, AM radio, complete tinted glass, and deluxe belts and warning lights.
The glovebox of this model was signed by Carroll Shelby himself and makes this Shelby GT a truly one-of-a-kind model! It has zero accident history and is one of the best of its kind. You can call Elite Autos at 870-931-8004 for more information about this car, or any others in their showroom.
In 1969, the GT’s lost the title of Cobra, but the most important thing about this car is that 1969 was the last year for Carroll Shelby to put his stamp on this model. While the wheelbase stayed at 108 inches, like previous years, the length of this year’s model increased by 4 inches. The introduction of the Mach, the Boss, and the Grand in this year definitely took a toll on Shelby sales, but the Shelby GT 500 still lives on as one of the favorite Mustang models in history.
