Number 18 of 100 built for 2008, this Shelby GT Mustang
Barrett-Jackson Edition convertible is a car that packs a 319hp
punch underneath its special color combination. The Shelby GT
Barrett-Jackson cars were not only created to help Carroll Shelby's
charity, but they received an exclusive black with full red stripe
package to match Barrett Jackson's color scheme. Even the
Bullitt-style 18-inch wheels were blacked-out. Ford's 4.6-liter V8
engine was given some nice upgrades for duty in the Shelby GT,
including a cold-air induction system and the Ford Racing Power
Upgrade Package, which increases output to 319hp and 330 ft/lbs of
torque. Underneath there's an X-pipe exhaust system that gives the
Shelby a distinctive sound. This car features Ford's Racing
Handling Pack, which includes specially tuned shocks and struts,
lowering springs, oversized sway bars and a 3.55 limited-slip rear
end. The Shelby GT package added a deeper front-air dam, a special
billet grille with offset Mustang Emblem, hood pins and a hood
scoop. Out back are the big Shelby block letters as well as a
diffuser panel under the bumper and twin exhaust tips. The interior
is well presented with black leather and, as a registered Shelby,
there is a signed and numbered plaque on the dash, as well as a
short-throw Hurst shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission. The
equipment list includes a Shaker 1000 sound system, air
conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry, dual front airbags, side airbags and power driver's seat.
This well-kept Barrett-Jackson Shelby has 14,674 actual miles and
has never been modified.
