Description
 
"Maybe you've seen this car listed for a while, and have questions about it. Maybe you're wondering how well it's sorted, or how well we've finished it out. A couple weeks back we had a Shelby expert here looking it over, and we fixed a comprehensive list of faults large and small. The short version is that this car is priced well below market value, and well below other GT500's for sale today. This is not a car to pass on! Before its inspection the car was very nice--you can see that in the pictures. The top didn't work too well, the exhaust was tired, and several small details were lacking. We pride ourselves on sorted cars, and this one was below our standards. Here's what we took care of in the past month: We installed: Both front shocks (Koni Classic,) air cleaner mounting hardware, air filter, oil pressure sending unit boot, date-coded spark plug wires, one horn (was missing,) radiator fan shroud, transmission pan gasket, the entire exhaust system from the manifolds to the tips, sway bar bracket bushings, power steering hoses, rebuilt power steering ""ram,"" fuel cap emblem, both power top hydraulic cylinders, both front window cranks, emergency flasher button, driver side vent cable, washer fluid floor pad and the battery. We also tidied up some wiring, made sure all of the lights worked inside and out, and gave the car the once-over. Being an old car, some of those items are forgivable, but we sell cars that exceed expectations. When you think of significant muscle cars there are a few cars and names which come to mind. At the top of nearly every list youll find one ornery Texan, Carroll Shelby, and his fantastic reinterpretation of Fords Mustang. More desirable yet are the convertibles and the big block cars, and this gorgeous Sunlit Gold example here is both. Highly documented, a 25+ year SAAC member car and owned by the same man who took delivery for more than 30 years this show ready example is perfect for any high end collection. The big three pieces of documentation follow this car: The ORGINAL build sheet, the Marti Report and a copy of the original invoice. Heres how this car left Metuchen on March 5th, 1968: 428CI Police Interceptor V8 C6 Automatic Transmission Exterior paint: Sunlit Gold interior: Black Dcor Bucket Seats White Power Convertible Top w/Glass Rear Window Visibility Group (light package) Wheel Lip Moldings Power Steering Power Front Disc Brakes Tilt Steering Wheel Air Conditioning AM Radio Interior Dcor Group Tinted Glass Tachometer and Trip Odometer When Shelby got done with it there were a pile of changes from the specific bodywork to the rollover bar to the Goodyear Speedway tires to the Stewart Warner green line gauges in the center stack. Completed, it went to Pletcher Ford Sales in Jenkintown, PA, where it was picked up on July 22, 1968 by its new owner, James W. Sole. Jim kept the build sheet, the copy of the invoice, the original tax form from 1968, receipts for various services throughout the years, the brochures and ads for the car, previous registrations and damn near every SAAC dash plaque and member card he owned. Theres even an autograph from Carroll himself! You like to see long-term ownership of a car--it means it was something special to the person behind the wheel and not just a toy. Mr. Sole loved the car, and wherever his job took him the Shelby followed. It spent time in Philly, Rochester, NY, Westport, CT, and Palos Verdes, CA before winding up in Rockport, MA. If youd believe it Jim used the car for his daily transportation through 1989! He retired the car to weekend duty and had the car restored in the next couple of years by specialist Mike White in Bow, Mass. Finished in time for the 1993 show season it took Best Restored Antique at the 1993 Boston World of Wheels show against a ton of competition. Shunning a trailer even after the signifi"
