2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
If you talk to a car enthusiast about the Ford Mustang, you'll get
a few nods of appreciation. When you talk to anyone about the
Shelby Mustang, you're going to see some jaws drop and maybe even
hear some low whistles. The Mustang is an American icon. The Shelby
is an American legend. The Shelby isn't a car people dream about
owning - it's a car people dream about seeing in person.
For consignment and your visual, auditory, and seat of your pants
enjoyment, a 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500 in droptop form. So named
because you can expect the output of the engine to be 500hp, but
that was when this number 130 of 241 with the red appearance
package and number 66 of 131 with the red package in black was
stock. It's far from stock now with a myriad of tasteful bolt ons
and a tune that ups the ante from a tire shredding 500hp to an
earth rotating 636hp at the tires. Purchased new by our consignor's
father on 2-25-2008 at Hopkins Ford and passed onto our consignor
in November 2017. Now it's time to pass along this 1 of 682 black
venomous snake to a new home to be fully enjoyed.
A proven but not abused 76,727 original verified miles, renders
this 14 year old muscle car in near showroom condition. Dipped (not
literally) in Ebony clearcoat, then slap (not literally) on some
unique GT500 badging, painted red stripes from the lower front
bumper over the hood to the rear deck spoiler, and you are looking
racy. This legendary car has a drop top in black cloth, and it
moves up and down flawlessly via a switch. The side and rear glass
has been tinted with a ceramic tint to accentuate the sinister
look. Body panels are razor straight and have very consistent gaps.
Up front is the air extractor aluminum hood, body integrated
headlights, and fog lamps, all of which are highlighted by the
Shelby specific semi oval snake badged grille. Quad 18 x 9.5 bright
machined aluminum wheels, and red GT 500 rocker stripe that
stretches between them on both sides frame the lower sections of
this modern muscle machine, now you are in Shelby heaven...I'm
A swing open of the doors will reveal a pair of sport buckets in
black leather and red tuck and roll inserts. Some power movement
seat options mixed with manual options, and you'll get it "just
right" baby bear. Look in the back and you'll note 2 extra seats in
the 2 plus 2 formats, in other words 2 more butt grabbers for the
audience that will witness the speed show. A basket style light bar
has been installed which gives a great look with the top down.
"Round" would be the theme on the dash with round gauges called
"light-toned" and including a boost gauge AKA the ass kicker gauge.
Air-conditioning emanating of course from round ball style vents
and a Shaker 500 Audio system with AM/FM/CDx6 and MP3 Capabilities.
Drop the top, crank the tunes, and hit the loud pedal...now you are
Under the heat extractor hood with Ford installed hood lifts lies a
5.4 Liter DOHC 4V supercharged V8 with fuel injection for the
fossil burning. A mere 500hp wasn't enough for our consignor and
his father, so the wick was turned up just a bit with a cold air
intake and a JLT tune package which now produces 636hp and 537
lb/ft of torque. All this power blows back the power to a 6-speed
TR6060 manual tranny and Ford 8.8 inch 3.31 TracLok axle. Now you
Showroom condition visually and structurally with a lowering kit
installed for the independent coil spring front suspension and 3
link with panhard bar and coil spring rear suspension. Roush lower
control arms have been installed as well as a Roush anti wheel hop
bracket on the rear axle. Brembo high performance disc brakes are
on the front and rear, and full-on ABS and traction control for
when you feel a little goosey with the boost in the wet. A dual
exhaust system with a Ford Racing cat-back muffler set up is on for
your auditory pleasure and we note a 1-piece aluminum driveshaft.
Now you're thinkkin...
An overall great experience that will put a smile on your face, and
a crease in the butt of your pants (and hopefully that's all) with
great acceleration and handling. This car shifts smoothly, and runs
A well sorted machine with many tasteful and powerful upgrades that
can be broken down by production numbers in multiple ways...no
matter which way you look at those numbers this is a rare snake.
However, your dreams of a blue oval muscle car are right here in
our Hallowed Halls, (in snake format), in menacing black, with
636hp and seating for the family, you're thinking grocery gettin,
trips to the shore, night out to dinner... to pass it by the
significant other...arent you? Now you're.... smile'n...
