Legendary Mustang Packs Tons of Celebrity Power
Shelby GT #155 has been modified, raced and signed by a long list of automotive giants.
While flipping through the muscle car listings on ClassicCars.com, we came across this interesting 2007 Shelby GT Mustang. This car will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, Arizona event next month after a life of participating in many road racing events.
While the original owner was traveling around the country, racing at Shelby events and general motorsports events, a long list of autographs were collected on the hood along with a huge assortment of stickers.
Shelby GT #155
2007 Ford Mustang-turned-Shelby GT serial number 115 was purchased in 2009 and immediately raced at the Shelby Bash in Las Vegas. It also raced at the 2010 Bash, beating a handful of GT500 race cars before being lightly modified for more racing action over the years.
Aftermarket upgrades include a set of JBA headers, a cold air intake, a high performance braking system and 20-inch Shelby “Razor” wheels wrapped in Nitto high performance tires. As you can see, it also has lots and lots of decals from front to back, including the Shelby Bash decals and many decals that appear to represent sponsors.
In addition to winning at many race tracks in the American Southwest, this car was driven and evaluated by Bob Bondurant at his driving school in Arizona.
Like all Shelby GT Mustangs, this car is powered by the 4.6-liter V8, mated to a five-speed manual transmission and since being purchased, this car has seen 24,297 miles, many of which were driven on the race track.
While Shelby GT #155 has lived an exciting life as a race car, it also serves as a canvas of sorts for countless autographs of automotive celebrities. This includes, but is not limited to, Carroll Shelby, his wife Cleo, grandson Aaron Shelby, Bob Bondurant, Parnelli Jones, Don Prudhomme, “Miss Hurst” Linda and many, many other people associated with Shelby Automotive and the racing world.
There are plenty of Shelby GT Mustangs out there, but none have the racing history and the amazing collection of autographs, making this a great show car that can also shine on the race track.
