Classic Car Overview

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Born in Leesburg, Texas, Carroll Shelby seemed to be a man obsessed with speed his whole life. He was a flight instructor in World War II before he moved on to piloting land-based vehicles. It wasnt long before he started racing cars. For his first driving competition, a quarter-mile drag race, he drove a flathead Ford V8 powered hot rod. He proved talented enough to upgrade to racing Aston Martins in Europe, breaking land speed records at the Bonneville Flats and being named Sports Illustrateds Sports Car Driver of the Year twice. Shelbys crowning race achievement came in 1959 when he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 1960, heart problems forced Shelby to leave racing behind, despite his objections. That was only the start of Shelbys contributions to motor history. In 1962, Shelby started having dreams centered around one word: Cobra. Its a word that has since entered the dreams of many a Mustang-enthusiast, synonymous with outrageous performance. For consignment, an outrageous performer, with a supercharger having a factory rated 550 horses, this black cloaked red striped low mileage, (17,243 actual miles to be exact), ground pounder equipped with the SVT Performance Package. For you number crunchers out there, my crack decoder has done the work for you...this snake is 1 of 1,669 coupes built for the model year in black, 1 of 543 with the Race Red and Ingot accent striping and 1 of 409 equipped with Recaro seating with red accenting. This snake is the definition of the doppler effect from the whine of the blower to the song of the exhaust when this car streaks by! Exterior Described as immaculate, and when seen in person, it fits perfectly. A menacing black cloaking drapes this entire car, and adds to the sinister aspect, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Panels are laser straight, and paint is pristine. Race Red decals in racing stripe form are running from the front grille just above the chin spoiler, over the hood, over the roof and to the back trunk lid and up and over the spoiler then dips downward to the bottom rear fairing. Also, a red rocker stripe is just above the black rocker panels at the bottom of the car on either side. The rear fairing has some diffuser ribs and an exhaust tip peeking out of either side. Triangular quarter panel glass harkens back to the early fastbacks of yore. Charcoal snowflake style 19-inch front and 20 inch rear Shelby wheels are wrapped in low profile rubber, and we are ready to do some damage. Interior Driving a rocket ship requires seats that can hold on to you as you speed along. This car is up to that task interior wise, with excellent condition black Recaro leather buckets in front and some dual buckets forming a bench integrated into the back. Within their tuck and roll inserts and more red racing stripes to emulate the exterior. The center console races up the middle of the front buckets and has the 6-speed white knobbed gearshift lever within its confines. Moving out wandering eyes upward, we see climate controls, and a Shaker AM/FM/Sirius/CD player with a sync and navigation upgrade. The instruments also harken back to the early models and are in deep set round form, all backlit in indigo for day and night viewing. Clean black carpeting provides the backdrop for this racy interior and hanging above is a black felted headliner. Just a fine example of a comfortable yet safe, and sporty beautiful interior that grabs you visually and figuratively. Drivetrain Are 550 horses enough for you? It is all buttoned up under the hood in a very clean engine bay, and it presents itself as a 5.4 Liter V8 that just so happens to be supercharged and fed by EFI. A TR6060 6-speed manual transmission with a Ford 8.8-inch 3.73 TracLoc rear axle moves you forward. We note the factory SVT cold air intake to help keep those ponies running in the fresh air. Undercarriage Nearly as sparkling clean as the top, no problems under here with the neutral finished steel flooring and black bolt ons. The only rust noted is of the surface variety that has developed on a few of the untreated components. Power discs all around featuring Brembo 14 discs in front provide the whoah factor and the original high flow dual exhaust system is on for the extremely healthy exhale. Independent front suspension and a 3 link with a Panhard rear suspension is on to keep those big sticky high-performance tires planted to the pavement. Drive-Ability Over this writers head, but our crack muscle car enthusiast and decoder was drooling over taking this one for a spin. In our massive parking lot, we are very limited to even try to push a car like this, but he noted all is fine on the starting front, shifting was smooth, clutch was tight, and there was plenty of acceleration to go around even at 1/4 throttle. In fact, one would never just nail this throttle, or you would find yourself with the rear of the car passing you, which is not good! A low mileage, (17,243 actual original mile car), never raced or manhandled, garage kept and respected by our responsible adult consigner. A street legal race car essentially, all beautiful, and a boatload of available power assets. In this case black and red stripes means GO!
