What happens when a legendary car builder from Michigan unites with a legendary race car driver from Texas and a legendary guitar builder from California? They create this rare Ford Shelby GT Fender edition! Now that your head is spinning from all that corporate verbiage, allow me to explain. A few years ago Ford and Fender execs realized their brands shared a lot of the same customers. So, Fender thought it would be cool to create a custom, Ford-themed Stratocaster. And Ford, thumbing through their many iconic models, figured the Shelby Mustang served as perfect inspiration. Hands were shook, papers were signed and, before we knew it, Fender had built two custom Shelby GT Stratocasters; and Ford, in cooperation with Shelby American, had produced two sequentially numbered Shelby GT Mustangs. The first car and guitar combo "raised $600K at Barrett-Jackson":http://www.mustangcobra.us/News/Ford-Shelby-Fender-Rock-Barrett-Jackson.html for the benefit of The Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation. And the second combo, the car and guitar you see here, was given to one lucky fan who entered a Fender-issued sweepstakes. There's really no better way to see or be seen than a sinister American muscle car. And there's really no better way to feel or hear music than a hand-built American solid body. So step right up and experience pure aural bliss with this showroom fresh Mustang and its custom Fender accessory!

Showing an exceptionally low 486 miles on its five year old odometer, this Ford Black boulevard cruiser has been meticulously maintained and is factory fresh in virtually every way. The car's original two-stage is clean, shines like new and provides a bit more sophistication than a typical 'bright paint and black stripe' package. Under that conservative canvas, original sheetmetal fits precisely and displays great build quality. A close look down that fuselage reveals not so much as a dent or ding anywhere. Shelby's high quality cosmetic add-ons blend invisibly with that solid profile. The title for the sum of those pieces is 100% clean with no history of accidents or damage of any kind. And overall, this super slick GT conveys a premium sense of collectability that, when combined with its natural curb appeal, creates one timeless modern classic!
It's hard to argue with the killer good looks of Ford's fifth generation Mustang. And when Carroll Shelby throws in a few of his hottest styling elements, the car's visual impact is taken to a whole new level! At the front of this super clean coupe, a billet Shelby grille hangs a familiar pony emblem between racing grade hood pins, familiar black-bucket headlights and a Shelby-specific valence. At the sides of the car, clean fenders ride behind traditional “POWERED BY FORD” emblems, enhanced side scoops and great looking “SHELBY GT” rocker stripes. At the top of the car, a familiar Shelby hood scoop, a factory spoiler delete and traditional Shelby roof stripes trace original greenhouse glass. And at the back of the car, authentic “SHELBY” decklid letters reflect segmented factory tail lights, a Shelby-branded faux fuel filler, an attractive Shelby GT500 bumper cover and large stainless exhaust tips.
Take a look under the hood of this storied American legend and you'll find a world class 4.6 liter Ford 'mod motor' V8 that delivers a solid 325 horsepower and a stout 320 lb./ft. of torque! Combining a lightweight aluminum block, forged aluminum pistons, and aluminum 3-valve heads with a forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods, a Ford Racing air kit and a Ford Racing power tune, this rev-happy monster makes great muscle car sounds while providing class-leading efficiency and docile street manners. Twist the key and the smooth mill rumbles to life, sending brash baritone notes down a 2.5-inch performance exhaust system that bellows from dual stainless tips. Goose the throttle and 9.8 to 1 compression zings the engine towards redline thanks to a new, more aggressive camshaft. Drop the transmission into gear and the car buckles down into an eager lean with the tension and authority of a coiled snake. Deliver one jab at the go-pedal, and you'll find out why dictionaries are starting to list the name “Carroll Shelby” under the word “performance”. Aesthetically the engine bay looks very clean, not equipped with any of the flash you'd expect from a street-wise pony car and appearing, dare I say, much like a sleeper. But to anyone who knows anything about cars in general, the hot Ford Racing strut brace and subtle Shelby sequence plaque are dead giveaways that this isn't just some run-of-the-mill secretary special!
Straight from Dearborn, Ford's premium D2C platform is a solid foundation that makes the Mustang a true force to be reckoned with. And when you add a bunch of Ford Racing components by way of the Shelby GT option, you get one very capable curve carver! Up front, a Macpherson strut independent suspension hangs speed assisted power steering between two Ford Racing lowering springs, Ford Racing dampers and a Ford Racing sway bar. Out back, a three link solid axle rear end spins sporty 3.55 gears between two more Ford Racing lowering springs, more Ford Racing dampers and another Ford Racing sway bar. That suspension is aided by four wheel power disc brakes, a standard anti-lock system and factory traction control that are all very welcome additions if you plan to use this car anywhere near its potential. Spent gases are whisked away by a performance exhaust system that's complete with an X-pipe crossover and big stainless tips. Sending the engine's power to the ground is a slick shifting 5-speed transmission which is as much darting through traffic as it is racing up entrance ramps. And all this proven hardware rides on an awesome set of premium, body-matched wheels which spin super sticky 235/50ZR18 BF Goodrich G-Force T/As around standard chrome lug nuts and factory machined lips.
Take a look inside this Ford and you'll find a comfortable and stylish cockpit that's ready for long road trips and plenty of summertime fun. At the center of the car, highly bolstered seats feature thick padding that's wrapped in impressive pony patterns. In front of those seats, a familiar Mustang dash seals highly detailed gauges behind chrome trim rings and a small Shelby sequence plaque. Below that plaque, a Shaker 500 stereo combines an in-dash CD changer with modern MP3 compatibility to become a one-stop shop for all your audio needs. Below that sound system, a wide console props a classic Hurst shifter in front of ample storage space. Beneath that storage space, like-new carpet is protected by Shelby floor mats and Shelby GT-specific sill plates. Above those sill plates, sculpted door panels hang full-length armrests between small metal handles and big kick speakers. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a high dollar muscle car are present and accounted for including: cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, a power driver's seat, and remote keyless entry that's complete with built in theft deterrent software. It's never easy to describe a stable of essentially new cars because you feel like you're boring readers to death by saying the same string of words over and over again. But repetition of words makes them no less true and, as with all our essentially new Mustangs, everything from this car's ice cold air conditioning to its super cool MyColor lighting works well, looks good and promotes an overall sense of reliability.
In addition to the aforementioned one-of-a-kind Fender Stratocaster guitar, the sale of this special Mustang includes the original Ford window sticker outlined above, the original Shelby window sticker outlined above, a stack of original Ford and Shelby owner's manuals, a copy of the car's previous Fender-registered title, and a factory dealer brochure.
In short, this super cool Shelby GT is an awful lot of car for the money. And with only 486 gentle miles, it still feels as solid as the day it left the showroom. There's a reason Mustangs are some of the most collectible classics of all time, and this rare Fender edition makes it easy to see why.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
