For Sale: 1968 Shelby GT500 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is honored to feature this stunning 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1968, and later '69 and '70 models by Ford. This example has been restored to original condition and boy, does it look good. The "Sunlit Gold" Shelby paint does just as the name suggests and is captivating in any light. This Shelby GT500 also features a Top Stripe Delete: nothing against the racing stripes but it sure makes the overall look of this extremely collectible car a lot cleaner. The subtle Shelby design cues on the exterior from the lettering on the hood and trunk, side badges and gas cap help you recognize this real car from the pretenders. How about those 15" Shelby 10-spoke alloy wheels too?! Of course, this Shelby GT500 wouldn't be complete without its correct, original powertrain. Most notably, the legendary 428 4-Valve CID "Cobra Jet" V8 that had an estimated 335hp from the factory. The 428 was one of the most powerful and durable motors Ford has ever built and the engine bay on this GT500 comes with period correct parts and the all-important air cleaner emblazoned with the Shelby logo. A 4-speed manual transmission makes this a true driver's car as well as a collector. Inside, you'll be blown away by the condition and originality of the Black vinyl front bucket seats with some specialist Shelby options like the fold-away rear seat "Sport Deck" and shoulder harness seatbelts. The Shelby gauges in the center console, tachometer with trip meter and Shelby steering wheel complete the awesome details on this car. This 1968 GT500 comes with power steering and power assisted front disc brakes. You won't be disappointed by the condition of this superb Shelby that has been stored in a climate control environment and features limited mileage since restoration. It might be time to pick up your Dream Car before the value of these real '68 models hit a new height among other classic car enthusiasts.
