Vehicle Description

This extraordinary original-matching numbers 1968 Shelby GT500 Fastback #00975 is the ultimate collector's piece with its excellent pedigree. It could be the only authentic Black, 4-speed with air conditioning car known to exist. MS CLASSIC CARS had this car inspected and validated by Shelby experts Jason Billups and Tim Lea in May of 2024. The report is included with the sale. Jason and Tim are both head judges for the SAAC Club. Jason and Tim are also both known for restoring authentic Shelby's to correct and high quality standards. As the Marti Auto Works Deluxe Report indicates this example was actually built at Metuchen on February 14th, 1968 as a Shelby GT500 Fastback. It was ordered with the following options: Raven Black exterior, Black Knitted Décor bucket seat interior, tinted glass, wheel lip moldings, visibility group, interior décor group, tilt-away steering column, AM radio, Air Conditioner, sport deck rear seat, power steering, heavy duty battery, power disc brakes, 428-4V engine, 4-speed manual transmission and 3.00 standard rear axle ratio. Based on the Marti Auto Works Deluxe Report Statistics only 183 Shelby GT500 Fastbacks were painted Raven Black. Only 90 Shelby GT500 Fastbacks were ordered with a 4-speed and AC of all available colors. Only 22 Shelby GT500 Fastbacks were painted Raven Black of which only 17 had Black Knitted Décor bucket seats of which 5 of them had Air Conditioners. The car was shipped to Downey Auto Center located in Downey, CA. As the Shelby Automotive Co, INC window sticker indicates the original MSRP was $5,262.95. As the Shelby Registry indicates on May 29th, 1968 salesman Mr. Arizia of Downey Auto Center sold the car to original owner Clyde C. Meddings as part of a dealer “Summer Sales Contest” from May 21st through October 31st. The car eventually found its way to Rick Forte in Rhode Island. As the Shelby Registry indicates it was purchased by Patricia McInnis- Farrell of West Warwick, RI in 1981. At the time of purchase the car was in original condition with low mileage. The car was enjoyed and eventually was parked because of a minor front end accident where it sat for many years. Patricia decided to have the car completely restored and chose Extreme Restorations located in Slaterville, RI for the job because they have a reputation for high quality work. The restoration was started in October of 2007 and was completed in February of 2010. Once the restoration was completed the car was properly stored and seldom used. Patricia sold the car privately in 2023 to a local Shelby collector named Randy Pomfret who lives in Rhode Island. Randy sent the car back to Extreme Restoration for refresh. MS CLASSIC CARS approached Randy about purchasing the car and a deal was made in May of 2024. MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of $5,527.29 in service and detail which is documented with an invoice that's included. June of 2024 is the first time the car has ever been listed for sale.
