Known History

This vehicle is on Display and Available for Purchase at our Benicia, California Showroom.  Contact us at 707-748-4000 or Sales@specialtysales.com.

 

Built at Ford's Dearborn plant and completed by A.O. Smith in Livonia, Michigan for Shelby Automotive, Inc.  Delivered June 20,1969 by S&C Ford in San Francisco, CA.  Original owner was Mark Zeis, a Ford Executive.

 

Current owner purchased the car in Chico, CA in October 1975 from the second owner who bought it in 1969 from Mark Zeis.  He actually sold the car and regretted it!  He was able to find the car and repurchased it in 1996!

 

Engine is a new service short block with rebuilt heads.  All numbers are correct.  Engine was installed January 2002 and the car was rewired with the correct harnesses.  You can see the Ford numbers still on the harnesses!  Tim Morgan and crew at Morgan's Machine in Walnut Creek, CA restored the heads, balanced and blueprinted the NOS Ford short block.  The interior is all original, except for the carpet.  Even the Motorala AM 8 Track stereo still works!  All glass is original from 1969.  This car was number 1945 of the 1969/1970 production run, only 1534 GT500 Fastbacks were built.

 

Interesting Note:  This car is responsible for the exemption to California smog check requirements enjoyed by the cars of the Muscle Car era. (Pre 1976)  It was purchased in 1996 from Maurice Johanesson, the local State Senator.  After he paid to make the car smog legal for transfer, he authorized the CA law exempting older cars from the Smog checks!
