For Sale: 2008 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-C is a very rare find. Literally. One of just 215 produced exclusively for the California market, it's got a pedigree that sets it apart from other limited-edition models and is a modern-day representation of a unique chapter in automotive history. With only 21,497 miles logged on this super-clean example, it's also in the absolute prime of its life - barely broken in and ready to create countless memories on the roads ahead.

Sporting a unique Grabber Orange tuxedo with a Silver mohawk stripe-pattern, this rare Shelby obviously came to party, and my goodness is it a really sharp-looking ride. The finish is in great shape, with only minor imperfections and the very real possibility of looking and feeling brand new again with a quick clay bar and wax detail. Those broad Silver stripes run down its center from nose to end, just as with the original Shelby's more than five decades ago, and a set of lower-body stripes at the profiles were added to match and add further contrast to the vivid Grabber Orange finish. We're pretty used to seeing specialty and aftermarket Mustangs on the road, but this one simply doesn't look quite like any of them. To go along with the stripe package, the $8500 GT-C package featured lots of goodies from Shelby, including the hood scoop, hood pins, unique billet grille with integrated Pony badge, scoops aft the doors, and the deleted rear spoiler that makes the car look like a modern-day notch-back. Despite all the automotive engineering advances it both benefits from and exhibits proudly, put this Shelby side by side with the original version, and you'll see a respectful homage that's really impressive. Owing to both its unusually low miles and good care, it's looking great, as well. The deep paint shines, the flashy grill sparkles and those signature graphics still look fresh.

Inside, you'll notice everything looks equally fresh. From front to back, the black leather upholstery on the sporty seats retains its original shape and firmness and looks great sitting on the sea of matching black carpeting. Its front power bucket seats are especially well-designed-supportive and nicely bolstered and once you take a look at the back seat and it's obvious this ride didn't see much in the way of car pools. No wrinkles from bearing passengers, just the smooth shininess of leather and a hint of new car smell still hangs faintly in the atmosphere all these years later. The brushed aluminum look of the dash area remains unspoiled and bears the telltale Carroll Shelby signature and production number - further proof of its rarity. You're covered in the options department, as well, as this baby comes loaded with pretty much every available option in 2008. The well-regarded Shaker 500 system comes with AM/FM, CD and satellite radio displayed on the large screen in the center of the dash, and there's also an anti-theft device, tilt wheel, cruise control and pretty much power everything. A/C blows nice and cold, too, and the cabin feel air-tight thanks to modern insulation from the factory. All the GT-C cars also received a Hurst shifter, Shelby GT-C door sill plates, and a personally signed Carrol Shelby signature on the passenger's side sun visor.

It's one thing to turn out a model with a special look to its exterior, but the special features on this very limited-edition car carry through to its drivetrain, as well. This IS a Shelby, after all, so you'd expect no less. The already potent 4.6 liter engine benefits from a 90mm cold air intake (that front air dam isn't just for show), an Pro-Cal engine-management performance calibration, and an X-pipe exhaust with performance mufflers, upping its power output to 319hp and 330 foot/lbs. of torque. It's power that readily shows itself in terms of real performance, as this model cracks 5.1 seconds 0-60 and clocks an impressive 13.8 in the quarter. It's connected to a very well-engineered Tremec TR3650 5-speed manual transmission powered by a Hurst short-throw shifter that provides not only performance, but low RPMs on the highway as well thanks to a limited-slip differential with a 3.55:1 final-drive ratio. That lowered stance you see is no idle promise of handling aptitude, as it's the result of new dampers all arouns, lowering springs, thicker stabilizer bars, a strut-tower brace, and all the other benefits of the Ford Racing Handling Package. And, with its oversized and vented Baer power disc brakes all the way around, you get great stopping power, as well. Finishing off the look, this GT-C sits on a killer set of 18-inch alloys wrapped with Yokohama performance rubber.

Here's a rare chance to nab a highly collectible, limited-edition California car with unusually low miles and bearing the name synonymous with state-of-the-art muscle car performance. Call today!!
