First Ford Shelby GT rolls off the line headed to Barrett-Jackson

We just told you about how "Hot Wheels" Amy Boylan has managed to turn Shelby Auto around, and here is one of the fruits of her labor: The first production 2007 Ford Shelby GT. As we told you a while ago, the Ford Shelby GT is essentially the consumer version of the rental-fleet-only Shelby GT-H. It will be the third Mustang in the Shelby Mustang family along with the Hertz edition and the 500-horsepower Ford Shelby GT500. And this newest Shelby 'Stang is set to follow in their footsteps.

This first GT, CSM No. 07SGT0001 will follow its big brother GT500, by crossing the block at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Event on Saturday, January 20th. Just like the GT500, all the proceeds will go to the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation. In case you don't remember, that first GT500 sold for $600,000 back in January. And the first Shelby GT-H sold to the public brought a whopping $250,000 back in late July. Even the fleet Shelby GT-Hs coming off Hertz lots are bringing $68,000-$90,000 at auction! So we can only imagine that this one will bring considerably more than its MSRP of $36,970.
