Arguably the most iconic Carroll Shelby cars to date. This is the
only Shelby vehicle he designed from scratch, completely on his
own! This rare limited production series 1 is #158 of 249 built in
1999 and has only 522 miles! This is being offered from our
personal vault collection at Volo Auto Museum where the car has
been the past 11 years! Now is your opportunity to own a piece of
both Carroll Shelby and Volo Museum History!
EXTERIOR: Finished in centennial silver with maroon optioned
stripes. These cars are very distinct yet familiar looking. They
have ties to Shelby's favorite cars like the Shelby Cobra, Dodge
Viper, and Ford GT40. At first glance you're not sure what kind of
car this is but when you take a closer look you see resemblances to
those very vehicles. The paint is in excellent shape aside from a
couple minor blemishes. There's a light scratch on the passenger
side mirror cap and a slight crack in the paint on the driver rear
quarter. You really have to look close to find it. The 18" wheels
are a unique Shelby 2 piece finished in hyper silver centers with
polished aluminum lips. They fit the aggressive stance of the car
perfectly. The convertible top is black and a soft top. It is
manually raised and lowered and hides nicely under the tonneau
INTERIOR: With only 522 miles the interior is practically spotless.
The black/gray combo ties in nicely against the silver paint. The
carpet mats are like new as well as the two-tone leather bucket
seats. The interior will remind you of some GM cars as Carroll
Shelby used spare parts leftover from Pontiac and Buick. It has
tilt steering wheel, cruise control, air conditioning, monsoon
premium stereo, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. On the
passenger side of the dash is a numbered series one plaque
identifying the authenticity of this car.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Pop the hood and you'll find a very impressive
engine bay. The exposed aluminum frame is impressive with the dual
wishbone control arms and the high tech inboard over rocker coil
over suspension with remote dampening. Jam-packed in the center of
all this is the Aurora 4.0L V8 packing a punch of 320HP. It is
mated to a ZF 6 speed manual transmission that was exclusively
modified to fit these cars! Sitting on top of the engine are very
nice carbon fiber covers that add to the appeal of the engine
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Although there's no actual trunk compartment,
behind the seats is the tonneau cover that can act as a trunk when
the convertible top is up. When opened it is shelled out nicely
with plastic and has plenty of storage space!
UNDERSIDE: Underneath the car is spotless and impressive! The all
aluminum chassis is a sight to see. This car is equipped with 4
wheel independent suspension, dual stainless steel, Borla exhaust
with a nice rumble, and 4 wheel disc brakes!
A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am
offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen
are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your
questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a
walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.
Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the
showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
