PS, PB, 4-speed, #'s 428 Cobra Jet
Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 21st year in the classic and muscle car business. There are legendary automobiles that will increase the heart rates of most enthusiasts, and then there are a very few transcendent marques that inspire awe with the mere mention of a name. Shelby, as in Carroll H. Shelby, is one of those few. Although volumes have been written about the racer/manufacturer/entrepreneur, he is probably best known for his work with Ford Motor Company involving the Cobra and Mustang programs. For the 1969 model year, Ford allowed Shelby to alter the front fenders, hood, and front facia of the GT's, giving the cars a much sleeker look and vastly improving their aerodynamics. This beautiful Pastel Gray (D5) 1969 Shelby Cobra GT 500 Fastback perfectly illustrates the results of Mr. Shelby's magic. According to the Elite Marti Report, this rare, sleek, and powerful classic came from the factory with all of the features you see, including the 428-4V Cobra Jet V8 engine (R), 4-speed close ratio manual transmission (6), 3.50 Traction-Lok rear axle (S), power steering, power front disc brakes, Pastel Gray paint (D5), Black Knit Vinyl Hi-Back Bucket Seats (3AA), Sport Deck rear seat, AM radio, Deluxe Belts with warning light, and the tachometer with trip odometer. The SAAC Shelby Registry notes that only 5.2% of these cars were painted in Pastel Gray, making this one of the rarer hues, and therefore increasing its desirability. The older restoration was done correctly (red oxide primer, solid pans, etc.) and shows well, but the tires are old and we may freshen the chassis a bit. This car is going to be the centerpiece of someone's collection; will it be yours?
