1999 Shelby Series 1 Convertible
An ultra rare 1999 Shelby Series 1 convertible is heading to auction, and this example has just 4,645-miles on the odometer. Serial numbered #249 / 249, it was the last one to roll off the production line, complete with a Caroll Shelby signed carbon fiber rear engine cover. Power comes from a 4.0L DOHC 32-valve V8 engine making 320 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, enabling it to hit 60 mph in 4.4-seconds.



Other features include a dual wishbone suspension with coil-over remote reservoir dampers mounted inboard, aluminum honeycomb panels bonded into the floor boards and rocker panels for added structure as well as stiffness. Carbon fiber and fiberglass laminate body panels kept the weight down, or 2,650-pounds to be exact. Interested? It’s being auctioned by Mecum at their Glendale 2023 event, which runs from March 28 – April 1. More information here.

Carroll Shelby’s first ‘clean sheet’ car, was the Shelby Series 1. Carroll always intended for that innovative chassis to be the first in a line of modern sports cars, which is why he called it the Series 1,” said said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American.
