The next generation Shelby Mustang GTs for 1969 saw the GT350 equipped with a 351 cubic-inch V8 and the GT500 with Ford’s mega 428 block power plant. Upscale, professional and well off, the buyers Shelby and Ford targeted wanted performance at their disposal but, also demanded their performance cars be comfortable and reliable daily drivers. The 1969 model year received an extensive face lift with the body increasing in length by 4 inches. The new exterior look for 1969 was long and low with racy styling having looks that seems to dare anything on the road to try and challenge it. These Shelby’s were known for racing car handling in the day with lots of power to the asphalt and the suspension and brakes to take a corner at speed and ride right through the curve. In 1969, there were only 194 GT350 Convertibles that rolled off the assembly line compared to the 335 GT500 Convertibles. This makes the GT350 much rarer than the GT500 in the opinion of many Shelby fans.
