1969 Mustang (Shelby)
#1
This is about 99% of what my all time fav car is. Just need black instead of gold stripes.

I'd sell the Mrs. for this, but don't think I could get $180,000 for her.

Pardon my ignorance or stupidity (probably both), but this car is so much like the '71/'73 Verts to me with looks and styling in so many ways.

No doubt about it, she's a beautiful looking car for sure. The money's way too rich for my blood though. If you owned the car, you'd be too scared to drive it around.

I'm sure your Mrs. Is priceless and this, although a Shelby, is just a car.

I'm with Greg, sure does look like a 7173 vert.

They are really good looking cars. 69/70 Shelby employed a much greater use of fiberglass body panels to greatly alter the overall lines of the car. The front fenders and hood are fiberglass and I believe parts of the trunk assembly are as well. They do really resemble the 71/73's. I wonder which design actually came first?

It is well known that Bunkie Knudsen liked the looks of the 69 Shelbys, and instructed the designers to incorporate much of the look into the upcoming 71s

I parked my 71 next to a 69 Shelby at a car show once and it's apparent the 71 was designed to look more like the 69 Shelby than the 70 Fastback.
