Not my car. Just wondering as the seller says the car is Burnt Amber. Good looking color. He says it was offered on Shelbys as well??? Never seen one... I am thinking he is incorrect.....

Would this be the same car posted on another mustang forum back in 2008 ?

The seller is correct!

Burnt Amber was offered on 23 Shelby's in '67

Can't say how correct this info is ? but here is the colour chart from the Corcoran Shelby Mustang book. does show Bronze Metallic. paragraph above says the first five colours were the only ones scheduled for the September build in the '67 prototype program.

upper left car, Bronze Metallic.  The color code for this color in the '67 Shelby VIN is "1".

Its unfortunate there is a market for these cars. Especially at that price range.....

  Vangaurd's car is a joke. The 350 clone is a nice clone. Well done.

I would be very surprised if the car sold for anywhere near the $130k asking price but you never know. Seems like it would be more accurate for that kind of money. Certainly in the range of what a real car could be purchased for. From what I have seen the top of the market is $50-70 not including Barrett-Jackson sales.

As a modified ex-Shelby KR owner, I may have a different take on this car.  The price is out of line, but it is amazing how turned on people get for the 390 "big block" engine, and especially coupled to a 4 speed.  It certainly jumps the value of a GT/CS or a 1967 or 1968 standard Mustang.  From what I have seen, 50k to 60k is the ceiling on a car like this.  But it appears to be very well done and a beautiful car.  Certainly a lot of the Shelby unique stuff is there, but the ad goes overboard on its Shelby "originality".  I am certain you guys could pic it to death.

For me a stock 390 is basically a stone.  Made the car front heavy and a slightly warmed up 289 or 302 will beat it all day long from a stop light or on the 1/4 mile.  And handle way better.

My guess is we will see this owner fishing this car for quite a while.  I do see the market for properly identified clones or tributes.  Some of us just like the look, but don't have deep pockets to own a real one.  Both of these cars score on the look for me!  To bad they did not source a 427 or 428 for this car.  An aluminum 427 could push this car to the 60k range.  Time will tell and there is always a sucker or two out there with too much money.  They are the ones that really hurt the hobby and drive the prices up.
