Built with all-original Shelby parts, this 1969 GT500 re-creation
began life as a 4-speed-equipped '69 Mustang Mach-1 M-Code. Power
currently comes from a 428ci Super Cobra Jet V8 engine fed by a
Holley Demon 850 carburetor and fitted with aluminum heads. Power
is sent to the rear wheels via a Toploader 4-speed manual
transmission and on to a Ford 9-inch rear end fitted with 3.73
gears and 31-spline axles. The GT500 rides on a set of Obsidian
CoupeR Mustang wheels and uses a set of Baer brakes for stopping
power. The massive drilled and slotted rotors measure 13 inches up
front and 12.5 inches at the rear. The powerful braking system
works in tandem with Global West Suspension, Truetrac and rack &
pinion steering. The exterior is finished in custom two-tone copper
over black paint. Inside, the GT500 features a carbon-fiber Shelby
dashboard, Kenwood audio system, custom carbon-fiber racing seats
wrapped in Milano Italian leather and Shelby roll bar. From the
Larry Winkler Collection.
