Shelby made 20 automatic coupes with 600hp, for rental in LA, Las Vegas, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale. They made one 6 speed convertible with 700+ hp (one guy at Shelby estimates 760hp) It is serial # 0001, and was used initially for promotion, and then, I am told, was used by the CEO of Sixt. I have contacted Sixt to confirm.

The selling Ford dealer tried to represent it as one of one, and technically, it is, but I did not pay a premium over any other late model Shelby GT convertible, which are fairly rare.

Nonetheless, I'm still curious what others think about its value, now and future. I know it took a long time for the hobby to recognize the Shelby GT350 H as an equal, and I expect the same may be true for the Shelby GT-S.

I welcome any comments, positive or negative.
I was searching online. I just purchased number 3 car.
Im also wondering where it fits in history. The thing is if it has any value it wont be a for a very long time. The best you can hope for it is holds its value. I bought a 2013 GT500 new paid 65k for it, today is worth close to the same as new.
Thats is what is cool about the cat. Mines the 10 speed auto, Im not a huge fan of that tranny. Hoping to work out a few bugs. Trying to understand what tune is in it now or where it can be had.
Id like to know all the owners in this series.
The best thing also is regardless of what its worth down the line, it is unique, genuine and should totally increase in value.

I purchased my convertible (CSM19SXT0001) from Crater Lake Ford, Medford, Oregon. They also had a Black/orange stripe coupe for sale. Is that the one you purchased?

All 20 coupes are automatics, and utilize the Edelbrock/Shelby blower, configured to 600+ hp. The convertible is a 6 speed, and utilizes the Roush-Ford Performance/Shelby blower, configured to 700+hp. Not sure why they used two different superchargers, as I understand the Edelbrock/Shelby one can be re-configured for up to 1000hp, although I think stronger half-shafts are recommended. I would worry about upping mine as I'm not sure the Getrag MT82-D4 could handle it. I think the 10 speed auto would handle it, easily. I'll bet yours was programmed to limit top end speed, since it was in Sixt's rental fleet. Since mine was driven by the CEO, Sebastian Birkel, I don't know it it did or not, but I'll never test it out!

I was told by a Shelby employee, that mine actually puts out more like 760hp, and, after driving it for a couple of weeks, that is plenty of horsepower for me, so I would not consider having it reconfigured.

One other thing, if you are interested, I had a problem getting proper insurance for mine. My regular insurance company, State Farm, wanted to insure it as an regular Mustang GT, based on the VIN, meaning it would be way, way underinsured. I ended up getting Haggerty Agreed Value, at my purchase price, although it took almost a week for underwriting to approve it. I've had Haggerty for my 69 Yenko Tribute for 20+ years, with no claims. Not sure if that had anything to do with getting it approved.

As for future value, who knows? If mine holds its value, or goes up, great. If its value drops like a rock, that's OK, too, as I bought it to enjoy. My advice is, enjoy it, but take care of it, and let the chips fall where they may.

Unreal,

Sounds like a nice one. If you ever decide you want to sell your car, please let me know as I have been looking for a Shelby GT convertible.

As I normally do with any major purchase, I have kept looking ever since I purchased mine. Sometimes, I find one that makes me wish I had waited, but in this case, I reconfirmed that I made the right move.

When I was looking, there was a red one with the roadster tonneau, for about the same money, but other than that, the only convertibles I've seen in the last 4 months were Super Snakes, or Signature Series, and they are all in the $130-$160 range. Most are automatics.
There is one GT-H non-supercharged automatic, for $107 which has been for sale for 5-6 months. Not sure why it's not selling.

Lots of Roush Mustangs, in the $65K range ($85K for new ones) again, mostly automatics.

Bottom line, not many late model Shelby GT convertible, high horse, 6 speeds coming up for sale. You could always commission one. Or spring for the 800+hp Super Snake or Signature. Don't wait for mine, as when the time comes to sell, I promised it to my son.

There's a 2019 GT-H Supercharged 6 speed for sale on Autotrader.com for $105K. Virtual twin to mine, except for gold wheels and gold stripes. Mine has polished black wheels, and flat black stripes over black paint.

Also, I want to collect a data base of GT-S owners, so if you own a Shelby Sixt, and want to participate, PM me.
