1999 Shelby Series 1

Gateway Classic Cars Houston is thrilled to offer this sizzling Centennial Silver 1999 Shelby Series 1 for sale! For those unfamiliar with Carroll Shelby's Series 1, it is one of the most unique cars that Shelby put his name on. For starters, the Series 1 was the first and only car designed, engineered and built from the ground up, as a Shelby, by Shelby American and Carroll Shelby. Every major component that went into building the Series 1 was designed specifically for it, including the modified Oldsmobile Aurora V8 320hp engine and custom ZF 6-speed manual transaxle. Its extruded aluminum frame features aluminum honeycomb reinforcement panels and is covered in carbon fiber and fiberglass laminate body panels - a first in an American car. This car is #CSX 5031, is one of just 249 produced, and was assembled at Shelby's Las Vegas facility in 1999.

The Centennial Silver looks just right on this car, and the blue racing stripes that run from the chin spoiler to the top of the rear duckbill spoiler add just the right touch, combining to say "this runs better than it looks". Unlike any other vehicle that sports Shelby's name, this one started with a clean sheet of paper and Shelby's vision for what the ultimate street-legal racing car should be. Equipped with modern "passenger car" amenities, including Air Conditioning, AM/FM/CD/Cassette Radio (8-speaker 200 watt Delco Monsoon), Cruise Control, Intermittent Wipers, Leather-wrapped Momo Steering Wheel with Tilt, Power Brakes, Power Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Steering, and Power Windows, the Series 1 was pretty loaded for what's almost a purpose built race car; yet, it's one you'd be driving yourself to and from the race track in (and having too much fun getting there, most likely). The high back, well bolstered manual bucket seats (with their 3-point belts) keep driver and passenger snugly in place during high speed maneuvers, and fit most body types well...except the very tall, as you can read in some articles by various members of the automotive press - if you're approaching 6' 5", you may need different seats.

The Shelby Series 1 in this offering sports the above amenities, without any custom/special-ordered options. The controls all fall well into hand (and "to feet"), making this car a dream to drive fast on a good road course. The 18" diameter Shelby wheels are made by Speedline and were considered rather large back in 1999. With 18x10's up front and 18x12's in the back, Shelby Series 1 cars were putting serious rubber patches on the pavement with the OEM Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires. However, this Series 1 is equipped with BF Goodrich G-Force T/A Drag Radials at all four corners (P275-35R18 up front, P345/30R18 out back). This amounts to the kind of rubber contact that you'll get if you put some track slicks on it...avoid the rain, but in the dry, most drivers won't be able to reach the limits of the car's handling prowess. If you do happen to head out for a jaunt without checking the weather forecast though, you'll appreciate the fact that the convertible top is practically unused, so put it up, slow down (a lot), and you can make it home dry!

There are plenty of magazine articles about this car, and perhaps one of the most informative (and fun to read) was done by MotorTrend. If you want a track-driven expose, read that one - it will make you want this car even more! Don't miss out on a very rare supercar, one that was designed and built by Carroll Shelby himself - give us a call or email us before you miss out on this one!
