So, here it is, the Best Year for Shelby's GT500 and it's got the right color, bone stock original and kept in collectors condition since day one. Finding a low mileage GT500 of this vintage is near impossible, finding one in RED with the White Stripes, even harder, finding one with twelve thousand original miles...well, I don't even need to explain to you how hard that is. But, here it is. Stunning and in almost perfect condition. Without question, as you view my presentation, I hope you will see the attention to details I show so you can make a buying choice. I am very particular about my cars that I buy and the history behind them, their previous owners and most importantly, I want the very best of what's out there on the market so I can help YOU the buyer achieve your dream car. Of course, for me it is a business, but really it's more than that. I don't just go to auctions to fill empty spaces on my dealer lot. In fact, if you were to drive up to my building, you wouldn't even see a single car outside for sale. They are all in my enclosed showroom and when photographed, they are strictly marketed online. Why? Because I know you have been trying to find the perfect car for your personal reward...whatever that may be. And if a stunning Shelby GT500 has been your goal, look no further. You are starring at it right now...ok...maybe you're starring at my model too...but I know you want this car and you want to feel confindent in buying it too. So here's what you do...read the entire presentation...all my real buyers do that...look at the hundreds of pictures from top to bottom and see the extreme details I make sure you have available to you to make a fair offer, then bid or get on the phone and let's make this happen for you. It's just that simple.

Super Low Mileage • Show Quality Condition • Stunning Original Condition

Why do we present our cars with models?

Because it's fun and it gets your attention. After all, this is Las Vegas. What more could you expect?

Let's be clear, the models pictured with the vehicles are paid for the express purpose of showing off and presenting the vehicles.

Please calland we can discuss your serious and intelligent offer.

Be confident your intent to buy will be met by me, the owner, courteously.

Before you send me an email asking me for my "best price, bottom-line or asking price" let me just make a suggestion based on 36 years of buying and selling experiences. Deals are made through conversations, not texting, not emailing or conversations without even knowing who or what you are talking to, they happen throughpersonal contact. I want my my clients to know who they are trying to make a deal with. I want to know their real intent to buy also. This equation does not exist with "What's your best price?" and no personal contact. I have gone to great lengths to find this incredible vehicle, make sure it's the best it can be for you and present it in a way that no other seller does online. I do that so we can talk, make a clear deal, fair for both sides and watch a happy buyer enjoy their new ride. If you just don't have the gumption to make contact and you just want an idea of price, look at what the market values posted above say, they are fairly accurate on AVERAGE vehicles across the US. If you think this vehicle is average, above or below, bid accordingly or. . . pick up the phone and have a pleasant conversation with a real enthusiast that can make your deal on the spot. Keeping it real.

Since 2005, I have been in love with the Shelby Mustangs. Consider as the second Generation Shelby's the GT500 was at the top of the line of rock solid modern muscle cars. With its modular 5.4L 500hp supercharged V8 and the six speed Tremec manual transmission, suspension tuning and racing good looks, the GT500 was as much as a hit then as they are now. Finding an example this good nearly a decade old is even more impressive. Only collectors understand what it takes to have a car as much fun as this one is and refrain from using it everyday. There is a certain pride of ownership with deep pockets to justify keeping them in this kind of shape. Like New is Not Easy.

So, let me tell you a little history of the car. I have a real estate friend who called me the other day and told me that he was selling a house for a client that was planning on moving back to New York. He told me that had had this GT500 that was in his collection and figure it would be a good time to let it go. So, with an appointment, I went to his home, viewed the car that was sitting in his garage, fully detailed, perfectly clean and even had plastic still on the floors with the new mats in the trunk. I ask why he had driven it so little and he laughed with his New York accent, "Are you kidding me? It's a collectible!" I couldn't argue that at all. So many of these GT500s have been driven though. Their owners love them, drive them and most modified them too. But not this guy. He was a purest and not about to mess with factory perfection. I made the deal and drove the car to my shop the next morning. The only thing it needed was a battery. The original was just too weak and not holding a good charge so, it's got a new battery. As for the condition, nearly factory flawless. On the front bumper, you will see in one of my detailed pictures a small blemish less than an inch and there is one other on the left of the rear SHELBY quarter just above the taillight, another touched up blemish that is very small as well. Aside from that, like new everywhere you look.

A bit about the 2008 Shelby GT500s. I have heard that it is a favored year. I deal mostly with Vintage Mustangs and Shelbys, so I would not call myself an expert but I do know that 2008 was a stellar year for their production and customer satisfaction. Satisfaction won't be an issue with this car by any means. She runs, drives and performs like brand new. No modifications, just stock original collectors quality condition.

If you're reading this, no doubt you've seen the other Shelby GT500s. Seeing one with this low of miles in the color you want...well...that can only mean you want to see what it will take to own this great car. Well the only way to do that is to bid until you reach a fair buying figure that will reach the reserve or call me to make the deal early and snag the car of your dreams. So get on the phone an call me. My number is listed multiple times and I don't respond to emails asking me for my price or bottom line. You are going to have to call if you are serious about buying it or bid to own it. It could not be more simple. If you are serious, so am I about selling it.

This car has everything premium buyers demand; exquisite body and paint, showroom fresh interior and functional perfection.

Shelby's Cobra Snake embossed right into the seats.

Great interior that looks, feels and smells like brand new.

The 1000 Watt Kicker audio sounds killer, the air conditioner blows cold and the sport seats are awesome. Superb condition inside and out, everything works, nothing is broken. Just get in and enjoy . . .

Original owner books.

A note from the owner.

I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.

With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.

After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.

Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.

No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.

If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”

Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.

If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
