In fact, it took multiple years to complete, and yet, you're looking at one of only 414 ever made. That's why this has been kept in a preserved condition since day one. The car started with the right color, Performance White. Then the masters at Shelby when to work making it a true celebration of the original GT350. That means a new front bumpers with air intake just like the racing version, a proper hood scoop, quarter window covers, and plenty of the correct badging. There's even some cool tributes to later years of the GT350, like the center exhaust and a well-integrated rear spoiler. And of course, this has the Guardsman Blue full racing stripe package over the top of the car and on the rockers. And because a modern car needs its own style, Shelby also added some new performance elements, like the Cragar 19-inch wheels and a ground effects body kit. The total effect is a car that absolutely fits in with this storied history of the Shelby cars. And because this one-owner coupe, it has the kind of pristine total presentation that will turn your garage into a showroom.
The interior continues the custom craftsmanship, and just like the exterior, it all look brand new. The exceptional presentation starts with the seats. The consignor claims that the black leather with the attractive blue Alcantara insets is a special order. So it's an exclusive look only on this 45th anniversary car. It gives that one an added attraction, especially with the coordinating steering wheel, emergency brake, and shift boot. There are unique plaques on the center console, GT350 floor mats, and even the trunk mat is special. And you know this is truly blessed by Carroll Shelby with his signature on the dash. This is a premium car loaded with great everyday features, like air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, power steering, power driver's seat, and the premium Shaker 500 AM/FM/CD stereo. A modern classic also means the best in safety with anti-lock brakes, dual front airbags, and side airbags. The tilt steering column gives you a clear view to the factory gauges. Plus, those special A-pillar units are always in your eye-line, and they remind you of something extra special under the hood.
The GT350 has always meant extra performance, and so this one got the best option Shelby offered for this car. That Whipple Supercharger is a bright beacon of power sitting atop the original 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8. It's part of a full performance package rated at 525 horsepower.
