I am delighted to have sold this fabulous Shelby Mustang GT500, one of the most iconic American Muscle cars in history and signed by the great Carol Shelby himself on the sunvisor
Of all Mustang examples produced, this exceptional GT500 is recorded on the Elite Marti Report supplied with the car, as one of only 1376 with the 4-speed manual transmission, only 200 in Brittany Blue and one of only 50 that had this interior option, making this an exceptional rare edition.
The Ford Serial and Shelby Serial numbers show the car as a correct Shelby GT500 original, ordered by the Romy Hammes Corp on the 15th November 1966, the car was built during January of 1967 and delivered to its first owner in March1967.
Restored in the USA where the car had its beautiful paintwork redone and a Rally stripe added for the full affect.
The Factory specification included:
- Exterior – Brittany Blue
- Interior – Parchment Knitted Decor bucket seats
- 4 Speed Manual transmission
- Sport Wood rimmed steering wheel

Imported to the UK last year, with all relevant importation documents available wit the car, it has not been registered to the UK and awaits its first UK owner.
The car comes fresh from a recent service and a new UK MOT by a renowned Mustang specialist, where a Borgsen steering upgrade was fitted to improve some of the well known steering traits of Mustangs but without removing its “original feel”
These details were taken from the Mecum Auction Catalogue from when this car was auctioned in 2013.
