robertlane Posted April 19, 2008 Report Share Posted April 19, 2008 I've had a few questions about the 2007 Black Shelby GT that was on display during Carroll Shelby's introduction as the 2008 automotive executive of the year. The Shelby GT, #4759 was the only one on display. There were also 3 GT500KRs, one 1968 GT500KR and a 2008 GT500. After the event was over, Carroll Shelby walked over and signed the car's dash. . .I thought, what a lucky owner. It was the only vehicle there that he signed. As luck would have it, I was asked to return the Shelby to its owner - a 35 minute drive away :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet: It was the first Shelby GT with a manual transmission that I drove - wow - these cars are really a blast to drive! The Shelby GTs have a temperament that is separate from any other Mustang. . .you'd have to drive one to know just what I mean. Here's the exciting part: Shelby GT #4759 was lent to us from a local Ford dealer to display for the event. After the event, it was put back on display at the dealership for someone to purchase. So, if you're looking to purchase a part of Shelby history, contact Christie Parker (e-mail her here) or ring her at 248.379.0488. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
