perhaps the finest 100% unrestored exterior and interior Shelby Mustang GT 500 existing. (it was kept in climate controlled storage from '75 - '05)


One of the most coveted prizes a Shelby can collect is the Chairman’s Award, given to a select number of original, unrestored vehicles at the annual SAAC Convention. This 1969 Shelby GT500 was a hands-down winner in 2006 at SAAC 31, taking the prize after thirty-five years of careful storage in a dry, heated garage. Prior to that, it had been a summer car for its second owner, who purchased it from its first owner in June 1970 at 6,000 miles, just months into its life. It was retired in 1975, never to see the light of day until 2005.

Now showing approximately 49,000 miles, the car is still entirely original except for tires and exhaust, some new belts and hoses and a replacement smog system. The Deluxe Décor interior is virtually flawless, as if it has never been occupied, and all the original inspection stickers and grease-pencil markings are intact. The recipient of a sympathetic detailing by Colin Comer, the car is uniquely finished in its original Pastel Grey paint with Black interior and Red seat and carpet inserts, an unusual and attractive combination.

Described by Comer as “absolutely the finest unrestored, 100% original paint and interior 1969 GT-500 you will find”, there is no disputing its qualification as a collector’s dream, especially taking into account its fully documented history in the hands of a single caring owner over a thirty-five year period. There is simply no other GT500 like it.
