Painted in Highland Green, this Shelby tribute even has a bit of Bullitt attitude.
There is no denying that a classic Shelby GT500 is ready to steal the show no matter where it goes, but many enthusiasts can't afford a legit example. While Shelby purists may turn their noses at the idea, classic car enthusiasts will appreciate this 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Tribute car. Streetside Classics is offering the opportunity to own this incredible tribute to the iconic Shelby GT500.
Cloaked in the iconic Highland Green, a color made famous by Steve McQueen in Bullitt, the body of this GT500 tribute is in fantastic shape. Covering the engine bay is a fiberglass hood with dual scoops, and the front features an extended nose. Other Shelby upgrades include the scoops on the quarter panel and the trunk spoiler. Even more, iconic white Shelby stripes were painted over the top, and it was given matching decals on the rocker panels. Further adding to the Shelby attitude is the driving lights embedded in the grille, Cobra badges, and correct-style 15-inch wheels that sit on all four corners. Black vinyl in excellent shape protects the roof.
Under the hood sits a 289cui V8 engine with power shifted to the rear wheels via a C4 three-speed automatic transmission. Even more, the engine is adorned with Cobra ribbed valve covers and a matching long air topper. Providing additional oomph and rumble is the glasspack-style dual exhaust that plays in symphony with the small block. Navigating the turns comes easy thanks to power steering.
