Vehicle Description

A car with special provenance, this all-original 1969 Shelby GT500 Fastback, now featured in the Maxmotive Pittsburgh Showroom, was formerly owned and loved by Carroll Shelby himself. Powered by its original, numbers matching 428ci Cobra Jet 335hp V8 engine mated to the original 4-speed manual transmission and factory shifter, this is one survivor that has lived a life of royalty. The car is accompanied by the Shelby Vehicle Authenticity Certificate, documineting Carroll Shelby’s ownership, Shelby sales brochure, Elite Marti Report, and more. Obviously well cared for since new, a recent service has been performed. Presented in its factory finish of Royal Maroon over a wonderfully preserved white knit interior, this exceptional example was assembled in January 1969 in Dearborn, Michigan, and sold new at Pletcher Ford in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania to its first owner. It remained with its first and only owner until Shelby expert Stephen Becker learned of the car being offered for sale. Becker informed Carroll Shelby personally of its availability and shortly after, the GT500 was procured by Carroll Shelby for his personal collection. Carroll was so enthralled with his GT500 that he personally adorned it with the famous Terlingua Racing Team logo on the windshield, in reference to the racing team that Shelby co-founded in 1965. The GT500 came with a fiberglass ram air hood, fiberglass front and rear fenders, and sequential turn signals. Today the car presents in highly original condition showing only 64,505 miles. It is truly “Shelby’s Shelby,” sure to be a welcome addition to any premier collection. MaxMotive is pleased to offer you the opportunity to acquire this desirable and especially significant automobile. Detailed photos and information are available for your review at www.maxmotive.com.

MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle's condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
