"Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale August 16th- 18th, 2012 at Russo and Steele's 12th Annual Monterey California Auction. Please contact us for more information., The 1969 Shelby looked very different from the 1969 Mustang with fiberglass fenders, hood, and rear cap which made the Shelby three inches longer than the already elongated 1969 Mustangs. The hood was fastened with five recessed NASA-type hood scoops. The leading edge of the hooded ended with a chrome strip that wrapped around the grille to meet the thin Shelby chrome bumper. A second chrome strip formed a wide mouth on the grille between the headlamps with Lucas driving lights mounted just below the bumper. The Shelby GT side stripes were wider, centered vertically, and ran the entire length of the car. The rear break body side air scoops were wider and mounted in the center for the convertible but higher and similar to the 1968 for the fastback., In the rear, Thunderbird sequential taillights were used and a spring mounted license plate frame that hid the fuel cap. Early in the year the dual exhaust tips ended just inches below and to the right and left of the license plate. Later they were moved further out and earlier cars recalled due to a fire-hazard. All of Fords Grabber colors were available as well as the 1968 Shelby colors. All GT-350s got Fords new 290hp, 351 cubic inch V8; while the GT-500s got the 1968 GT-500 335hp, 428 cubic inch, Cobra Jet V8. In the fall of 1969 Shelby decided to stop making Shelby GT and the remaining unbuilt stock of about 789 cars where sold as the 1970 Shelby., This very desirble 1969 Shelby GT500 convertible is finished in red with a white interior. In 1969 the Shelby GTs lost their Cobra tag and once again were marketed simply as Shelby GT 350 and Shelby GT 500. The GT 350 and GT 500 for the 1969 model year received an extensive face lift, the body alone increasing in length by 4 inches. Ford was heavily involved with design and style decisions, with Shelby having very little input. The GT 350 was now equipped with a 351 cubic-inch V8. Carroll Shelby terminated his agreement with Ford in the summer of 1969.",, Auction
