For Sale: 2008 Shelby GT in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

Mustang, convertible, and Shelby - these are three words that guarantee big fun and desirability. So when you can find a nicely documented 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby convertible in a terrific color combo, loaded, and has low mileage, well then the only other describing word you need is "now."

This is arguably the best color combo around. The retro-style Mustang styling lines meet a cool modern shade of Vista Blue for a very attractive first impression. And the silver rocker stripes and racing stripes on top are great standouts to instantly tell everyone this is a speedy pony. In fact, all the details are quite speedy, too. That's because the people at Shelby started with some great GT elements like the hood scoop and premium 18-inch wheels, and then added unique elements like the double-billet grilles, GT350-style offset pony emblem up front, hood pins, rear diffuser, and Shelby's name boldly across the rear. It all is presented so well today because this car has averaged less than 2,800 miles annually. So while the growl of the exhaust will turn heads, the total presentation will make sure everyone's first glimpse of this droptop is a memorable one.

The interior is dark, premium, and driver-oriented - exactly what you want in a Shelby. With such low mileage, the leather in the driver's seat looks great. The modern bolstering hugs you nicely, and you can power adjust it to your perfect driving position. The leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view at the full gauge package. And as you look to your right, you'll spot two important Shelby upgrades - a shortened Hurst performance shifter, and a plaque reminding you this is a limited-edition machine. And while all of this will get your enthusiast heart racing, you'll also love this Mustang for its luxury features. Ice-cold air conditioning, keyless entry, power locks, cruise control, dual front airbags, and side airbags are all part of a loaded package. Plus, the factory radio is the Shaker 500 AM/FM stereo with six-disc changer and an input for you modern iPod. But the features you'll enjoy the most are the power windows and power convertible top. After all, this means you never have to leave the driver's seat any time you want to open this Shelby GT up to the world. And when you do take down the top, not only does the roll bar add extra bracing, but it's like a beacon to other enthusiasts signaling that this is a performance machine.

Ford's 4.6-liter V8 was given some nice upgrades for duty in the Shelby GT. This original numbers-matching powerplant came with a cold air induction system and the Ford Racing Power Upgrade Package, which ups output to 319 horsepower and 330 pounds of torque. There's also a strut tower brace that really makes a statement in the tidy engine bay and provides yet another reminder that this is no garden-variety Mustang. Underneath there's an X-pipe exhaust system that gives the Shelby a nice extra growl. More than just power and sound, this car features Ford's Racing Handling Pack, which includes specially tuned shocks & struts, lowering springs, larger sway bars, and a 3.55 limited slip rear end. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and sticky BF Goodrich gForce tires, and this is a droptop that was meant to be enjoyed on the open road.

Complete with the original window sticker and full owner's manual packet, you're looking at a cool machine that has the potential to be a great collectable. Of course, we also know you won't be able to resist adding plenty of miles to this speedy convertible. So you get the best of everything in one affordable package. Don't miss out, call today!
