Description

Lot #2075 - Ford chose the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction as the venue at which to reveal the Shelby GT-H convertible to the public. The car was driven onstage while draped in a blue, Ford-emblazoned cover and surrounded by a team of Ford and/or Shelby employees dressed in matching bowling shirts. Ford's Mark Fields orchestrated the formal unveiling from the auctioneer's stand, which culminated with Carroll Shelby popping out of the car's passenger door and ambling up to the stand to join Fields and the other Barrett-Jackson dignitaries for the auction of the car. As for the car itself, it's basically the mechanical twin of the GT-H coupe, with 319 willing horses ready to go under its bulging, pinned-down hood. Changes for the convertible, aside from the obvious folding top, include a rollbar and black-painted "Bullitt"-style wheels, as first seen on the black Shelby GT customer cars. Other features are carried over from the GT-H coupe, such as the black-and-gold paint/stripe scheme, Hertz badging on the front fenders, horizontally slatted aluminum grille and an automatic transmission. As was the case with the closed-roof GT-H, only 500 were built. This is car #001.
