DSO  Shelby 8D 2501

Is that all the numbers under the DSO portion of the drivers door dataplate? I'll elaborate more once you respond. Also, what does the rest of the drivers door dataplate read?



The only reason I am asking is the Shelby American, INC. fender apron plate that I have shows (2) serial numbers.  One starts with 8T02JXXXXXX & the other VIN starts with 8D200XXXXXXXX.

Chuck,

   Are you looking at a supposed GT350, GT500 or, GT500KR? Also, when you state there are two VIN's stamped into the "Shelby American INC" fender apron plate, Can you post a picture of it here so we can see if you are misinterpreting the stamping(s)

Answer on door tag: (J CODE IN THE VIN =302CID GT350)

63B  FDS  6A   8T02JXXXXXX  M  WHITE  PB  PS  IT  FD  4  SPD
SHELBY 8D 2501

I was at a car show this past Weekend & all (3) 1968 Shelby's Mustangs did not have a dual Vin numbers on there Shelby American Inc. apron tag.  That is why I was asking the question.

What you have is a car that is commonly called a "dual serial number" car. Is it number Shelby # 7 ?

Thank goodness you werent asking about Eleanors. You dont want to be in a trivia contest with Mongo. He is correct again, the "D" you found is for Domestic order.

The car you have has two serial numbers on the Shelby plate. The theory is explained here:

Have a look around, you might find the website interesting. www.thecoralsnake.com

Your car was ordered in the very first batch. Not built first, but ordered first.

Come on Chuck, you can tell us the number. My second guess it's # 25. (#89 is a terrible guess)
