Arguably, the last year for the Shelby GT-500® was the 1969 model year. Technically, that’s correct. However, unsold models from 1969 carried over into 1970. Along with emissions refinements, they were given a black hood treatment, a front chin spoiler, and were retagged with new VIN numbers with the help of the FBI. 1970 was the last year that the Shelby name would appear on a Mustang variant sold in the United States until 2005!

On the surface, the 1969 and 1970 models received a completely revised front end, plus a new hood with five fully-functional air vents. Under the hood was a powerful Cobra Jet Ram Air 428ci 7.0L V8 producing 405hp and 470 ft.-lbs. of torque. In 1:18 scale, Auto World has accurately replicated this 1970 Shelby GT-500® in bright Wimbledon White, blue GT-500® stripes and proper 5-spoke wheels.

3 of 5 SHELBY GT500 SLOT CAR ? September 29, 2020
Reviewer: James Fournier from Maryland Heights, MO United States  
The quality and attention to detail for this diecast is great. However, the body sits way to high over the wheels and it looks like a slot car or 4 wheel drive vehicle.  I believe this is due to the Ertl tooling on which I believe it is based.  I would not have purchased this diecast if I had been aware of it's stance.
