Vehicle Description

This gorgeous 1969 Shelby GT500 fastback, serial #837, is very authentic and one of only 1,157 built. This California Black Plate car was the product of a show-quality restoration. Prior to the restoration it was owned and inspected by Shelby expert Bill Collins. A copy of the inspection report from 2008 is included. It retains its original Ford VIN tag, door data plate tag and Shelby tag. The original Ford Invoice and Deluxe Marti Report are both included and indicate this Shelby was built on February 7, 1969. It was ordered with a Candy Apple Red painted exterior, an interior with black Clarion knit/Corinthian vinyl high-back bucket seats, 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission, optional 3.50 axle ratio, Traction-Lok differential, visibility group, Goodyear tires, sport deck rear seat, power front disc brakes, power steering, AM radio and deluxe belts warning light. As the SAAC Shelby Registry indicates, it was shipped to S&C Motors in San Francisco, CA. The first identified owner was Jean Marc-Euraed of San Anselmo, CA. It was subsequently acquired on October 13, 1994, by Victor J. Cornell of Bodega, CA. The original California Black Plate #ZJG425 and copy of California title dated 1994 with matching plate number are both included. It was acquired by Bill Collins on June 5, 2007, and shipped to Pennsylvania.

In 2010, it was acquired by James Thomas of Shickshinny, PA, which is documented with a copy of a title that is included. Thomas performed a rotisserie restoration over the next several years. Once it was completed, it was acquired Randy Quigley, who owned the car until November 2021. Since completion this Shelby has been kept in a private collection with limited exposure. Since the vehicle spent most of its life in California, it had a rust-free body prior to the restoration. It's believed to be original sheet metal and fiberglass throughout. The body is very straight with excellent gaps lines throughout. It was finished in its original color of Candy Apple Red paint with gold GT500 side stripes. The paint is high-quality and looks beautiful. All the Car-Lite stamped glass is original and in very nice condition. The original Shelby 15x7 5-spoke Mag wheels are wrapped in Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 tires. The black Clarion knit/Corinthian interior is mostly original and in really nice condition, especially considering its age. From the information gathered, the only item that's been replaced is the dash pad. The trunk compartment was nicely restored with a correct-style trunk mat, spare tire and tools. The engine compartment is highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. Although the lower cowl area was refinished it was intentionally left rough like it was prior to restoration. The car is powered by a date-coded 428 CJ V8 engine. The cylinder heads, intake manifold, carburetor, Ram air cleaner, smog setup, distributor and exhaust manifolds are believed to be those originally installed on this Shelby. The engine is coupled to the original matching-numbers 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission, which was completely rebuilt and shifts excellent. Power is transferred to the original rebuilt Traction-Lok differential with 3.50 gear ratio. The undercarriage is also highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. The underside of the body was painted in the factory-correct red oxide. All the parts have the factory-correct paint markings. The power steering system, suspension components and braking system was all restored or replaced. This Shelby is the real deal. The owner's manual, SAAC Shelby Registry 1968-69-70 4th Edition book and car cover are included. This vehicle has recently been serviced and detailed, which is documented with an invoice that is included. From the MS CLASSIC CARS Collection.
