You are looking at a piece of Shelby history. This was a very early build 1969 Shelby GT500, Serial Number 013. If you are a Shelby Collector I doubt you have or will find a car earlier than this with this history. This car is fully documented as being a Shelby Company Car and assigned to the Shelby Marketing Department. Documentation from the Shelby American Auto Club as well as the Shelby registry show this car as being taken by Shelby to the Rochester Auto Show on January 8th, 1969, and then taken to the Shelby Dealer Introduction show in Las Vegas on January 15th, 1969 as one of the show cars.

Once the Shelby Marketing department was done with the car it was shipped from Gaudin Motor Company in Las Vegas to Robert H. Loud Ford in Pasadena California on March 4th, 1969. It was purchased by its original owner from Loud Ford on August 30th, 1969, exactly 50 years ago. The car remained in California and was taken off the road in 1975. I think the car was drag raced as it has a Hone-O-Drive unit on it and Pro-Stock Engineering Ford stickers on the Lakewood traction bars. The current California plate on the car was the last plate on the car and still has the registration sticker from 1975.

The car has 55,000 original miles.

After the car was parked it sat for over 30 years in a warehouse where the previous owner started restoration and then passed away. The car has never had any rust, no panel changes, has its original engine and transmission. The car is basically a time capsule. Under the carpet still looks new with the blade jade paint on the floors. Every body seam looks new. The door jambs and trunk jambs etc all have factory paint and look perfect structurally.

I can’t stress enough how good the body is on this car and how original it is. Anyone is more than welcome to come and see this car in person.

The Marti report shows exactly how the car was built and I will break that down here for below.

Body and Paint:

First off, the body on this car is the best I’ve ever seen on a mustang and ALL ORIGINAL! The body on the car is immaculate. It’s all original Ford and Shelby Body panels. All original floors, doors, quarters, hood trunk, fenders etc. Never any rust repair. NO RUST or rot ANYWHERE! Underneath the carpet still has factory black jade paint on the floors. Inside the trunk is perfect all the way around. Trunk has the factory mat in it and a space saver spare tire only. Also have the factory jack and lug wrench and air bottle somewhere if I can find it.

The floor pans, frame rails, and torque boxes are perfect. No rust flakes, no issues at all. It’s amazing how nice the body is on this car. The car has original paint on the rocker panels, quarter panels, roof, trunk lid, quarter end caps, and rear valance. When I got the car it was not running because the owner had planned to restore the car 30 years ago and pulled the motor. I had the engine fully rebuilt and have receipts and pictures. He also began to paint strip the hood, fenders, and got some on the doors. I have pictures of all of this.

So I had to have the car painted to fix this. Using PPG basecoat and PPG Deltron 4000 clearcoat, I had the hood, fenders, doors, cowl, and front valance have fresh black jade painted to that match and it came out really well and then put on new Stripes from Branda. The roof, quarters, trunk etc have all original paint that has been buffed out the best it could be, with original stripes. The original paint has some chips, scratches, and minor dings but its ORIGINAL PAINT that’s 50 years old. I wanted to keep the original paint so that whoever buys the car can see that nothing is hiding under a fresh paint job and because the paint is only original once.

The fiberglass is in great shape overall and it’s all original. The rear valance was freshly painted satin black.

The engine bay was painted satin black while the engine was out and I applied new correct decals. Hood is very early with no S9MS part number, this has been verified and I have documentation.


The interior of the car is all original. Factory White interior. Factory gauges, dashpad, seats front and back, factory roll bar with shoulder harnesses, original carpet, original console etc. The shifter bezel is new but I have the original. All of the interior lights and gauge light work. The tilt pop steering column works intermittently and could use some service or bypassed.

The center console has some added switches in the car and has a crack near the front. I have a new factory console that goes with the car that is in excellent condition. Dashpad has a split by the speaker. Not bad but it’s there.

Factory oil pressure and amp gauge. The headliner is original and has a couple holes. Above the visor on both sides. Seats are overall very clean. I don’t see any tears, just a few stains that could be removed I’d say. Oil pressure gauge needs checked.


Brake systems works great.

Tilt pop steering needs some servicing.

Wiring has never been cut or hacked up. Headlight and taillights work, interior lights etc. I think the car needs a turn signal relay or switch. I’m also still trying to get the fog lights to work from the console switch. Bulbs are good, switch is hooked up. Fuel gauge needs checked out.

Brand new gas tank and I have the original that could be used.

Serious Buyer?? Make an Offer. Worst I can say is no or counter Offer You! Thanks!
