Used Shelby GT500

Our Ford dealer fleet sales rep came by today with a 2007 Shelby GT500, white w/blue stripes. The previous owner traded it in on a used Ford Ranger pickup for his ranch. The Shelby is in beautiful condition and has 1300 miles on it, Yes 1300 ! He said the dealer will price it high and sit on it for awhile, but he could probably get it down to $ 35,000. Now that still seems a bit high for a 3 year old Shelby GT 500, doesn't it ?

2007 Ford Mustang - Suggested Retail Value - Kelley Blue Book


41k is the dealer price so I'd say 35k is a pretty good price for it.

2003 Torch Red GT Convertible Manual ~ Toy
(Looks good, Sounds Good) 20k miles

35k is a damn good deal coming out of a dealership. If ya can afford that, go for it. In fact, you could make some money off that if ya really wanted.

That takes some willpower to buy a GT500 just to sell it. I'd buy it and just let the time slip by. ..30 or so years, THEN sell it

Whether it's the best deal or not I don't know... what I do know is that it's a good deal. I say if you can swing it then do so and enjoy it!

Sounds like a good price. You'll be looking at about $800 a month plus insurance.

NO i am not really interested in buying it . I just thought it seemed a bit high. I love my 08 GT so i'm not in the market.
