1999 Shelby Series 1 Convertible

Here's a beautiful and rare ( only 249 built ) Shelby that came out of a private collection and is still on a MSO , thus never titled , with only 500 miles on the clock ! It is unbelievably quick with unmatched handling powered by Oldsmobile's 4.0 Liter L47 Aurora V8 engine producing 320 horsepower and does 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and records 12.8 in the quarter mile at 112 mph! Top speed is 185 mph which is 15 mph faster than the 427 Shelby Cobra!!!. The car weighs only 2650 lbs. The Series 1 is the only sports car that the legendary, Carroll Shelby designed and built from the ground up! Shelby records show that they produced a total of only 249 Series 1's. This car is one of the original 249 production cars built with a seventeen digit VIN. It has a sandwiched aluminum frame & F1 suspension. The convertible top folds away out of sight in a compartment located behind the cockpit. The upgrades include leather seats, 4 piston brakes and a carbon fiber dash. This is a great investment vehicle and a much better place to park your hard earned money than the stockmarket ! This beautiful car has already taken it's depreciation and it will only go up in value from here. Asking only $96,000 and that's a lot less than the $175K it went for when new. Can ship to your doorstep anywhere on the globe at a reasonable price too !
