Classic Car Overview

As a muscle car enthusiast, when you see or hear the name Shelby, you immediately think about their mega-dollar 2-seater Cobras along with the classic Shelby Mustangs built from 1965 through 1970. Owning one of these rare Mustangs is on the bucket list of many collectors and car lovers alike, but finding the right one in the condition youd expect can be a challenge until now.The team at LaFontaine Classic Cars is proud to present this incredible 1969 Shelby GT500 that has undergone a complete, professional, rotisserie restoration by Legendary Motorcars in Canada during previous ownership. The details are concours quality, from top to bottom including the smallest of details.The refurbishing process included countless hours blocking and sanding the body panels to achieve ultra-smooth, flat surfaces for the new color code A Raven Black hue. There is no denying the beauty of a clean, straight, black Shelby GT500 going down the road on a sunny summer day and this vision is now a reality.While the body was being reassembled, the drivetrain components were disassembled, inspected and rebuilt to factory specifications. 1969 was the first year of the 428 Cobra Jet designation prior to that, the engine was simply called a 428, factory rated at 335 horsepower with stump pulling torque coming in at 445-foot pounds! This GT500s 428CJ power plant appears as it did the day the car left the assembly line. Two pumps of the gas pedal, then a twist of the ignition key brings this engine to life with the sound of muscle that is music to your ears.Sending the power rearward is a C6 Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission providing crisp, firm shifts upon those moments of aggressive acceleration. Applying the horsepower to the ground is a factory Ford 9 rear axle, the strongest offered in 1969. The bolt-in axle center section houses a Traction-Lok differential allowing equal power distribution to both rear tires while spinning the stock 3.50 gears, perfect for both highway cruising as well as those Saturday night match-ups from light to light.This Shelby still retains its rare and very difficult to find components and accessories adding to the desirability of this particular car. From the original engine to the factory installed Holley carburetor (list #4609 / C9AF-9510-U), to the original steering wheel and wood shifter handle. Near flawless original glass, chrome and stainless brightwork, vented fiberglass hood and cast aluminum center exhaust tips were all reused. Extra time was taken to research replacement parts when items are worn to make sure the correct appearing components are used. Some of the new items installed during the restoration include: a reproduction fuel tank, all brake lines and hoses, power steering lines and components, period correct distributor with correct plug wires and coil, new shocks on all 4 corners, correct air cleaner assembly, proper radiator and related hoses, correct emblems inside and out, with new 5-spoke Shelby wheels wearing BFGoodrich Radial tires for the classic look and smooth ride.Looking underneath shows the primed and painted undercarriage and beautiful floorboards, factory appearing pinch welds with an exceptionally solid subframe. All sheet metal is in excellent condition with no signs of rust or corrosion, the torque boxes and wheel wells are all clean and painted with factory style chalk markings and assembly line decals throughout.The interior is stunning all of the wood grain inserts are intact, the door panels, seats, headliner and carpet look beautiful along with the fold down rear seat and close out trim panels. The dash is in excellent condition with all gauges functioning along with the wipers, center console gauges, dome light and push-button AM radio.Included with the sale is a Deluxe Marti Report and many receipts for work performed over the years.Call us today at: 248-714-2110 or Email: Inquiry@Lafontaineclassiccars.
