2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT, #4472, 23K miles, One Owner
My father bought this car brand new in Kansas at Rusty Eck Ford and drove it immediately home to Sun City West, AZ where it has been driven and garaged ever since. It has been driven in good weather and never stored outside. He is nearing 80 yrs old and is no longer comfortable getting into the car. He is sad to part with it, but it is time. It is titled and registered in his name in AZ.

What is a Shelby GT?
If you don't know what a Shelby GT is (versus a Mustang GT or a Mustang GT500), then the description in the information below should assist you in the learning process. The Shelby GT's are more collectible than either of the other models because they are numbered and lower production cars that were modified by Shelby America, Inc. in Las Vegas for Ford Motor Company. The references below should help explain the differences.
Motor Trend best described the Shelby GT:
"Whether on the test track, highway, or your favorite stretch of mountain pavement, you'll notice a substantial difference in the way the Mustang performs in Shelby GT trim. Given a 19-horsepower increase, you wouldn't expect a huge drop in acceleration times, but we got consistent 0-to-60 runs of five seconds flat, a nip better than the usual 5.1-5.2 seconds for the stock GT. But the sensations make it feel like more. There's a deep, throbbing intake roar from the open-element air filter and wonderful subwoofer noises courtesy of the exhaust system. You'll be driving this thing through parking garages just to set off a few car alarms. The stouter rear gear helps, too; the car launches harder, revs up quicker, and midrange passing power again feels like more than 19 ponies' worth. The Hurst shifter cures the stock unit's side-to-side slop when in gate. Baby it, and it feels notchy, but treat it like a precision rifle bolt, and it snaps from gear to gear.
Handling improvements are more tangible. The combination of the decreased ride height (hence lower center of gravity), stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, and 18-inch rolling stock gives the Shelby sharper responses and higher limits. We've not previously tested a stock GT with the 18s, but the unmodified car with the standard 17s pulled a 0.87g grip number on the skidpad. The Shelby GT sticks all the way to 0.91 g. The MT figure-eight time also improves, from the Mustang GT's 26.4 to the Shelby GT's quicker 25.7-second blitz. This number tells us how effective all the mods are, as it synthesizes acceleration, braking, and handling performance. As you'd expect, there's a ride penalty, but not to the point of making the car unstreetable, or even unpleasant. Bumps and road chop are more prevalent, especially on poor-quality surfaces. Also be sure to keep that now-inch-and-a-half-lower front spoiler away from curbs and parking blocks."
"The 4.6 liter, 281-cubic-inch, 319 hp (238 kW) Ford Shelby GT slotted between the 300 hp (220 kW) Mustang GT and the Ford Shelby GT500. It is essentially a retail sale version of the Hertz rental-only Ford Shelby GT-H, except a manual transmission is available. The Shelby GT was a unique model in that, just like the Shelby Mustangs of the 60s, the Shelby GT's manufacturing was completed at Shelby Automobiles Inc. in Las Vegas, Nevada after being shipped directly there by Ford Motor Company. Shelby GT's were then sold pre-title to customers. By comparison, GT500 models were manufactured solely by Ford Motor Company in Flat Rock, Michigan."
"Production of the Shelby GT began in December 2006 and the car went on sale in January 2007. It was originally planned that a limited number of up to 6,000 cars would be built. The Shelby GT's include the deletion of the rear spoiler, a retro Shelby hood scoop, a cold air induction system with performance tuning resulting in a power output of 319 hp (238 kW), a Ford Racing suspension package consisting of upgraded dampers, springs which lowered the vehicle 1.5" and sway bars, a high performance exhaust system, interior Shelby sill plates and badges and silver stripes."
The 2007 Shelby GT was available in only White with silver stripes or Black with silver stripes. Other specific details of modifications can be seen on the Shelby Package window sticker included here.
In 2008, additional colors and packages were offered. 2008 packages included the Barrett Jackson run of 100 total cars, only in Black with Red Stripes, and 215 of the GT-CS "California Special" in Grabber Orange. New colors for 2008 Shelby GT's included Vista Blue, but it was not a special package.
