That was a long time ago and I sold it the following year for a GT fairlane... Yes that was a very dumb move on my part.. I did make up for it by buying a 1970 GT 350 that to this day I still have....Rich

Rich, I thought 69 was the last year for any Shelby Mustang models?

the last cars were built in 1969 as 69 cars. There were 315 cars that never sold and Ford got the gov. to look the other way when they were retitled as 1970's They only changed the one digit that shows the year of the car and sold them as 1970's This alone makes them one of the rarest Shelbys out there..
