Lot #647 - This is a truly unique 2008 Shelby GT500. While the idea of mixing old styling with modern performance and reliability is not new, Tony Beam and Tribute Cars, LTD have taken it to a new level. This authentic Shelby GT500 was customized using steel reproduction body panels for the '68 Mustang to achieve a truly classic and unique look. The fenders, doors and quarter panels are grafted steel components for a long life of enjoyable driving. The hood and valances are custom made high-quality fiberglass pieces. The original door handles were replaced with'68 Mustang-style chrome mechanical handles and mated with the internal locking mechanisms to provide seamless functionality. An underdrive pulley on the stock Super-charger allows this custom Shelby to deliver even more horsepower than the stock GT500. Specially tuned suspension by Tulsa Car FX delivers that power to the road for sure handling performance. The detailed features of this car must be seen to be believed. Each inspection will reveal more classic details. The steel construction and quality craftsmanship make this a car that can be driven and enjoyed for years to come.
