I gave you a dedicated thread and moved it here to the GT500 area, so you can get more answered by fellow 500 owners.

They didn't.

Did the tires shred off? Or did the entire rim come off the axle? Any pictures of the rims? Were they aftermarket or were they legit take-off rims from a GT500?

I would say more details are needed here. It sounds to me like the person / dealership who sold the car is libel here. It sounds like the axles broke.

2007 was the very first year the S197 GT500 was produced. If its a 2006 its either not a 2006, or a GT modified with GT500 parts

A GT, not a GT-500. Axles should be the same though..(?) Sounds like the car was probably abused before your son-in-law got it...

sorry to burst your bubble its not a GT500.. 4.6 is a gt which explains the 06 questions.. Shelby Cobra GT500 was 1st made in 07 and has a 5.4L.. it could be a shelby gt tho.. bcuz thats what I had b4 it was totaled and it is a 4.6 with a new tune and ford racing intake.. its a GT with a few minor upgrades and shelby on the sideskirts and rear.. and I believe they made it in 06

The only Shelby Mustangs made in 2006 were the Shelby GT-H Mustangs in black with gold stripes made fro Hertz rental cars (and not for sale to the general public until auctioned or sold off by Hertz at the end of their rental use.
2007 was the first year for the Shelby GT model, available only as a coupe and in black with silver stipes or white with silver stripes. For 2008 they offered only vista blue with silver stripes in coupe or convertble, plus limited quantities of grabber orange with silver stripes (sold only in California) and limited quantities of a special Barrett-Jackson Shelby GT in black with red stripes.

2013 Boss 302 gotta-have-it green
2008 Shelby GT500 torch red with black stripes + sequentials
2001 Cobra mineral grey with 2003 Mach 1 shaker hood
1996 Cobra color-shifting mystic paint + sequentials
