This king of the Mustangs was built at the Dearborn plant on April 14, 1969. The car was ordered new as a Shelby GT500 Convertible with the mighty 428 Cobra Jet and a C-6 Automatic transmission. The car was specified with Candyapple Red paint and white knit vinyl hi-back bucket seats. Some of the more notable options included a traction-lok differential, air conditioning, competition suspension, and a tachometer with trip odometer. According to the Shelby Registry, the cars MSRP was $5,597.70.

East Coast before making its way to California where it was acquired by Carroll Shelby. Some years ago, the Shelby is reported to have been fully restored by Barry Smiths Legendary G.T. Continuation Cars, Inc., a licensed Shelby partner.
Accompanying the sale of the car is a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate, certifying that the car has been owned by the legend himself, Carroll Shelby.
