Performs wonderfully

Incredible opportunity to acquire a GT500 Fastback with outstanding provenance

A collector’s dream!

The 1969 Shelby GT500 Fastback Mustang featured here is presented in its factory finish of Royal Maroon over a wonderfully preserved white knit interior. This exceptional example was assembled in January 1969 in Dearborn, Michigan, and sold new at Pletcher Ford in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania to its first owner. It remained with its first and only owner until Shelby expert Stephen Becker learned of the car being offered for sale. Becker informed Carroll Shelby personally of its availability and shortly after, the GT500 was procured by Carroll Shelby for his personal collection. Carroll was so enthralled with the GT500 that he personally adorned it with the famous Terlingua Racing Team logo on the windshield, in reference to the racing team that Shelby co-founded in 1965. Today this GT500 presents in highly original condition showing only 64,000 miles and is still powered by its numbers matching 428ci “Cobra Jet” 335hp V8 engine. The Shelby is accompanied by an Elite Marti Report, Shelby sales brochure, Shelby Vehicle Authenticity Certificate (confirming Carroll Shelby’s ownership) and more. A recent service has been performed and this GT500 is sure to be a welcome addition to any premier collection. We are extremely proud to offer this incredible 1969 Shelby GT500 Fastback to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates the legendary Carroll Shelby and the legacy he left on the performance world.
