CAV GT40 Built for Carroll Shelby

This GT40 was one of two built for Shelby American and this car is the only one that was built for Mr. Shelby specifically to commemorate his 80th Birthday - this car is unique in that it is serial number "80" and has red dash trim. I have all documentation - Bills of Lading, MSO, to support this - as well as references.

This car has never been in the rain, never been in any kind of accident, never been tracked.

Engine: 331 cubic inch built by Keith Craft, AFR185 aluminum cylinder heads port matched and ported by Keith Craft, custom built Holley 4 barrel carb built by Biggs,

Comp Cams hydraulic roller cam, Avaiad oil pan, 9.5:1 compression, aluminum flywheel

Transmission: RBT (ZF) 5 Speed, external hydraulic throw out bearing, upgraded shift linkage from Ian Clark

Upgraded rear suspension from Ian Clark. Two 10 gallon fuel tanks with upgraded lockable gas caps - I only use ethanol free gasoline.

Two sets of wheels - One set of Halibrand style and one set of BRM style wheels powder coated satin black.

It is currently registered in California under SB100 (no emissions) but the car is in Atlanta GA.

Mileage is 3579

Price is $139,000 - and open to interesting trades.

More pictures available, of course!

Pat,

Nice car! I remember the press coverage when Shelby got it for his birthday. Good luck in your sale...

The external hydraulic throwout bearing is a big, practical plus. Nice car!
