The Shelby name instantly lets us know we are in for extra
performance in an iconic package. So a car like this 2007 Ford
Mustang Shelby GT means we still get the legendary name we love,
but with all the modern amenities we desire, too.
Not everyone is familiar with the Shelby GT package from this era,
and even if you are, this one requires some special attention. The
Shelby GT gives the car some added power and handling capabilities,
and so this one gives it to you in a custom track day kind of
appearance. After all, the Carroll Shelby Racing logos on the rear
fenders make this look like it came off right off the racetrack,
and the overall fit and finish of this one feels like it hasn't
backed down from a blacktop battle. It's a unique style, but we
like it because it shows a snake-bitten Mustang that looks like it
serves its purpose. Plus, it's a well-coordinated appearance. The
white paint serves as a blank canvas for the aggressive black
package. That includes the full over-the-top racing stripes,
Boss-style side stripes, the front splitter, quarter window
louvers, tinted glass, rear spoiler, and the GT's 18-inch wheels.
Even the headlights were upgraded and set within a dark background.
And there are more race-ready components, like the hood pins, hood
scoop trim, and GT500 inspired fog light in the grille.
The interior is a loaded and modern Mustang. It starts with tan
leather bucket seats. These are quite clean, complete, and show
good care for a car of this age and mileage. This is a premium car
loaded with great everyday features, like air conditioning, cruise
control, power windows, power locks, cup holder center console,
anti-lock brakes, dual front airbags, and side airbags. The stereo
has even been upgraded to a modern large touchscreen infotainment
unit that controls the stereo, satellite navigation, and Bluetooth.
This one also reminds you it's something special with all the
Shelby touches, like the special Hurst shifter and the car's
special Shelby plaque boldly in the center of the dash. There's
even Carroll Shelby's signature on the dash.
Ford's fuel-injected 4.6-liter V8 got a few tweaks for duty in the
Shelby GT. It gives the Mustang more ponies with features like a
cold air induction system and the Ford Racing Power Upgrade
Package. And the exhaust was upgraded to make sure you've got a
true snake-bitten growl. Best of all, you're in control of it all
with the five-speed manual transmission. The included Shelby window
sticker also indicates that they upgraded the suspension package
when new. Add in power steering, modern performance tires, and
four-wheel power disc brakes, and now you've got a truly special
package that's a blast to drive.
This is an awesome price for a real-deal Shelby. So you can enjoy
this track day hero as-is or even use it as a base for your
supercharged/turbocharged/big block custom. This has a lot of
appeal, and it can all be yours if you're first to grab this deal.
