Barrett-Jackson countdown: 1970 Shelby GT500 convertible

This is the 10th car in a 30-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale collector car auction

Editor’s note: The ClassicCars.com Journal will be covering all of the action during Arizona Auction Week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Check out our other coverage here.


This 1970 Shelby GT500 has had a complete factory-correct ground-up restoration and will be on the block at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in January.

It’s powered by the 428cid Cobra Jet Ram Air engine backed by the original C6 automatic transmission and original 3.50 Traction-Lok rear end. It is equipped with the competition heavy-duty suspension package and Deluxe Décor interior with tilt-away steering wheel.

Based on the Marti Report, this car was ordered well-equipped for a 1970 GT500 Ford Shelby Mustang convertible. From the factory, the car was finished in Grabber Yellow.

According to the Shelby Registry, this 1970 Shelby GT500 convertible is one of only six 1970 models finished in such a color. This color is darker and deeper than Mustang Grabber Yellow; it was a Shelby-only color.

The floor pans, frame rails, torque boxes, rear quarters and fiberglass are in very good condition. It is listed in both the SAAC International Registry and the Shelby American/Team Shelby factory databases.

Loaded with original documentation, including the owner’s manual, Deluxe Marti Report, the original factory order sheet and original Ford-to-Shelby-to-dealer invoice.
