This Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Is The Craziest Car On Craigslist This Week

Craigslist

The only site where missed connections meet Shelby Mustangs.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and 350R are special cars. As such you wouldn’t expect to see one on the pages of Craigslist, right? Wrong. Craigslist may seem like a place where only crap is bought and sold and where weird people look for love, but it’s also a valuable tool for car dealerships. This GT350 is for sale at AutoNation Ford Burleson in Burleson, Texas, and is listed on the Dallas Craigslist page. Yup, even dealerships sell highly sought after muscle cars using the classifieds site.

Now, the 2016 Shelby GT350 isn’t nearly as rare as the 2015 model. Last year only 100 examples were built, with only 37 GT350Rs made as well. You can spot a 2016 from a 2015 by looking at its chassis number. The one in this ad starts with a “G,” for 2016. Models from 2015 start with an “F.” This model is chassis number G2059. Okay, so it’s not ultra rare but again, this is a 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 good for 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. This example is finished in Magnetic Gray with a double racing stripe. It has the optional Technology Package that tacks $7,500 onto the total price. That gives you an 8-inch touchscreen complete with Ford’s Sync 3, heated and cooled front seats and MagneRide suspension, among many other things.

For 2016, selecting the Technology Package bars you from selecting the Track Package but we hear that could change come next year. Regardless, this example hasn’t got the Track Package so that’s all there is to it. When it comes to price, this GT350 is in at $67,040. That puts it at about $20,000 over MSRP. That’s not such a bad markup, especially when you consider the added package that comes in at $7,500. Besides, what you’re really paying for is the ability to have one of these cars first. Yes, production will soon pick up and the price may drop accordingly, but if you can afford a car like this then you shell out an extra couple of thousand dollars to say you got it first. Or to say you were at least one of the first people to own it.

The only hard part is telling your friends that you found the car on Craigslist. Perhaps it’s best to make up a lie. Then again it’s kind of funny to tell everyone that you learned one of the most awesome muscle cars around was for sale as you were browsing Craigslist. What you were originally browsing the site for is nobody's business.
