I have 235/60-15s all the way around.  I had a slight rub on the wheel lip molding.  The molding was wider than the fender lip, so I trimmed it flush and no problems since.  My buddy used 225/70-15s and had the same trouble.

This is '75 or '76. It is an SOA meet.  The first Registry that SAAc did is called 1982. I'm not sure that he ever submitted the information on that car at all. The black 67 GT500, I never saw and he had it "stored" in a garage near by.

I would honestly take a guess that maybe a dozen Shelby's were in the area that were never documented. It may be that his shop had a reputation for "restoring" Shelby's?

I think Gary German, who was a tower at the time, was sort of involved with that. He had about a dozen "collectables" that I know of, if not more. I think he is in Florida now and it is POSSIBLE that he might know of information like those serial numbers.

You have to remember that in the beginning, people were very secretive about giving out information to anyone. Certainly the "clubs" had not proven that they were reliable and that the "information gatherer" was not just trying to buy cars at low ball prices. It was a steep up hill battle at the time. Even with guys like Jahoda that were "pushing" the clubs.

with only 200( approx) sold new in Canada I cannot express how lucky a guy is to find or even see a car like this. The upside is no hurricanes in Sask.
 Chug a Lug. I chased 5, 68 Shelby's over the years. I bought mine in 1983. It needed everything.I got the poorest of the 5. I have met a lot of nice people over the years, while restoring the car. Nice find.

Yup, it's "nice" (which is a gross understatement).

Wasn't Dicks Cobra the first to hit 200mph or if memory serves me right it ran 199.79 or something like that? He passed in a plane crash a few years back didn't he. Lots of great stories that car has.
note the number on the car
