The Shelby GT500 came back to production in 2007 to relive what Ford and Shelby started back in the 1960’s. Factory they packed a 500hp supercharged 5.4 V8 under the hood, a sturdy 6 speed manual transmission and a solid rear axle to take the torque! They featured a unique hood, wheels, Brembo brakes, and heavy duty suspension to help back up the Shelby pedigree they carry with them. There were only 7 exterior colors offered in 2007, and Performance White was the color option for this coupe, with only 2,101 produced.
In April of 2007, Ford announced plans for the Red Stripe Appearance Package. It would only run from May to June, and be limited to Performance White or Ebony cars. The package would consist of red over the top racing stripes, red lower body stripes, red cobra emblems on the exterior, red accented Shelby badges, a black and red leather interior and a car cover. Buyers had to opt for the $1,650 add quickly, before it was too late! Ford had a vision to take its already exclusive car to the next level and with final production being 169 Ebony and 128 Performance White GT500’s, they achieved that goal!
This Shelby was ordered new through Faulkner-Ciocca Ford of Souderton, Pa. From there, it was purchased by the original owner for $61,115 and taken home with them to Green Lane, Pa. It stayed in their garage until they recently decided to part with the car. This Shelby is bone stock, with no modifications, and still retains its Shaker 1000 sound system. The original owner made sure to preserve this car for its next owner, so we have the original window sticker, both sets of keys, SVT owner’s manual, and car cover to pass along. An awesome car to put away, or enjoy!
