If you’ve been wishing for a convertible 2020-2021 Shelby GT500 Mustang, you may be in luck!

Some blurry smartphone pictures have just surfaced, courtesy of M6G member, Matt Maran, who was tipped by a viewer with some quick snapshots of a drop top 2021 GT500 wearing what appears to be the Iconic Silver exterior paint color.

Until Ford officially confirms it’s coming, we will have to file this under speculation for now, although it seems likely we should be hearing about a convertible 2020-21 GT500 soon.

You can check out the photos here.

Ford has issued a new safety recall for select 2015 Mustangs that may have faulty door latches.

The affected vehicles may not have had all door latches replaced or correctly replaced when repaired by dealerships under safety recalls 15S16 or 16S30. Safety recalls 15S16 and 16S30 were issued to replace door latches with latch pawl spring tabs that were susceptible to cracking and failure in areas with high thermal loads (i.e., a combination of outdoor air temperature and solar radiation).

A door latch with a fractured pawl spring tab typically results in a “door will not close” condition. If the door latches after repeated attempts to shut it, there is potential for the door to unlatch while driving, increasing the risk of injury.

Maybe it’s me and my lack of knowledge of the industry? Or my lack of contacts and not being in the USA or maybe it’s the current global situation such as COVID19? Though over the last 6 months it’s been increasingly difficult to find certain Shelby reproduction parts. Particularly the 1967 GT500 Grille with inboard headlights.

Normally, I would purchase it all from Tony Branda at cobranda.com, however they have had supply issues. I would then try MustangsUnlimited, nope! They shutdown last year. How about MustangsDepot? Well that’s even worse, page not found or under construction. Lastly, National Parts Depot where I can’t even find it listed.
