2005 Ford Mustang V6 Automatic Shelby GT350!

Is this for real? I am no expert on late model Mustangs, but a V6 automatic Shelby Mustang! Or is this some sort of appearance only package Ford did?

This is over twice the price of what a 2005 automatic V6 Mustang would sell for.

It's silly, but apparently a thing.

Here's an old article about this exact car. Not much to it, but there ya go.

2005 Ford 40th Anniversary Tribute Edition Shelby G.T. 350 ? 67mustangblog

The anvil of reality.

IMHO: It's not real. 1. The Shelby didn't make it's comeback until the 2006 Shelby GT-H (Hertz Shelby). 2. The picture of the rear says who it is made by, but I can't read it. 3. Shelby would not but that much Shelby crap on a car. 4. If it was a Shelby, why don't they say what the upgrades are? Suspension, tuning, etc. 5. Even though Shelby would sign anything for a price, the signature on the airbag cover looks fake (compared to the one on my 2007 SGT airbag that I had him sign and have the certificate of authenticity for).

Totally NOT a Shelby. But someone will be suckered into buying a fake because it's on the internet.

In the UK, for about half that you can get a nice GT of the same year or a few years newer. Or for the asking price, you can get a mint GT which is a lot newer.

I have nothing against the V6 models, but this is just too much money for what it is.

As a side question, I have seen V6 Mustangs ( 2005 or newer ) listed as a GT. Was this ever a thing, or just sellers pulling a fast one and dressing the car up?

Shelby would never make a Mustang V-6 anything....

Just an FYI...

reading that article i don't think you can call it a fake. What i read is there was a licensing agreement in place to use Shelbys image/likeness. Soooo that it is an officially licensed Mustang with authorized Shelby logos on it!
But good gaudy!

Wiki sez there are some 2005 V6's that Shelby hung some Paxton superchargers on. They sound like fun.

If I'm rolling a stickered-up V6 S197 Mustang, it's going to be this one.

Sounds about right. I am sure in the US, modern used Mustang prices are probably a lot cheaper because of the sheer volume of them for sale. There are lots of modern Mustangs for sale in the UK, but they seem to hold their value quite well. But a 2005 V6 would be less than half the price of this Shelby thing.

Also, I just noticed in one of the pictures that most of the buttons on the controls in the centre of the dashboard are all worn out. I would have thought that if they even wanted to attempt to get top money for this, they would have replaced those with new or better used ones.

I feel bad that someone will buy this with more money than sense and think they have got a proper Shelby Mustang. To someone who would not know any better, this certainly looks the part. Again, not bashing the V6, but just the price being asked for it.

Just about every 05-09 V6 Mustang over here sells for less than $5k these days. There are a ton of them and theyíre quite reliable.

I know because Iíve been keeping an eye on prices for my daughters first car in a couple of years.
