I searched this on the Forum and found some basic information. I also got this off of the internet and copied it here for future reference and a complete description of the package:

***************************************************************

NEW LIMITED-EDITION SHELBY GT500 PACKAGE TO BE AVAILABLE BEGINNING IN MAY

The new Red Stripe Appearance Package will be available on any new 2007 Shelby GT500 Coupe with either White or Black exterior paint. Included in the special-edition package are Bright Red overbody and bodyside stripes, a Red and Black leather interior, unique red-accent exterior badges, including red-tinted Cobra emblems in the grille, fenders, and in the faux gas cap on the rear panel. Even the "SHELBY" letters on the decklid feature red accents.

The Red Stripe Appearance Package also adds unique new premium floor mats with a Red and Silver embroidered "Cobra Snake" logo, plus a fitted Shelby GT500-branded car cover.

The appearance package carries an MSRP of $1,650 and will be available from early May through late June, marking the end of the 2007 model run.

***************************************************************

I've seen this package on an 08 Convertible as well but I can't find details for any 08 package details. Was it also on 08 Coupes?

Anyone seen this on an 09?

Keep in mind, just because it has red stripes on black or white doesn't mean it is the "package". The package added the interior, emblems, floor mats and car cover.

This car cover is also intriguing. Anyone have any idea what it looked like or color? Was the cover a separate option for a regular production car as well?

Anyone have any literature about this package?

Thanks for the input.

I was going to add that detail when I finished my '09 repaint this winter. I had the stripes removed and painted on back in May from the front bumper, hood and rear bumper and had the front fenders and mirrors blended. I was going to do the roof and trunk this winter but I hydroplaned and totaled it on June 21st. Sooo there's that. Bought a 2018 black with flat black stripes and the red accent stripes. It looks really good.

My '09 coup came with the red stripe kit. It's noted on the window sticker. If I recall it was about a thousand dollar option.

Here's a screenshot of the 2008 Dealer Order Guide and a few pics. As for 2009, it is not mentioned in either releases of the order guide (I may have missed any further revisions), BUT in the 2009 price list, it is listed.

Willie,

Perfect! This is the kind of info I was looking for.

From reading, the 07 was coupe only. 08 vert only. Is this correct?

What about the body type for 09?

Also, I haven't read much about the car cover. Any additional description? Color? Picture? Was a car cover offered as an option for a regular GT500 for 07-09.
