Originally delivered to Pletcher Ford, which was just outside of Philadelphia, the Shelby spent the first few years in Pennsylvania until it was purchased by him and registered in New Jersey. Art was very secretive about this particular car and didn't drive it much, so it sat. Over the years, he logged very few miles on the odometer, totalling just a scant 21,990 miles. The time he spent behind the wheel was usually limited to quick trips on the local roads in his area. Once he was done, it was tucked back in storage.

While the car is covered in dirt, a close inspection reveals an incredibly solid hit-free body still wearing all its original sheet metal and paint. The 428 Cobra Jet engine is numbers matching, as is the rear. While those are original, the gearbox was changed at some point, as were some pieces under the hood, but overall it is in excellent condition. The interior is equally original, and while quite dirty, also exceptionally well preserved.
