The fold lines appear correct to me but that is only one area to look.  Most repos do not have the fold lines or they are in the wrong place.

Relisted by a different seller. 
Analyze the wear and tear in the corners for both auctions; and this is the same poster that sold last week.

Mine is folded in half the long way, into itself. So image to image. Then the 8" folds were done. So when you open up the poster, the right side at the top, the poster comes towards you, while the left side the crease is away from you. On the link it appears that the poster was folded away ( image out ). The crease through Sebring also looks the same. Both sides going away. Just what I can see compared to mine. Who's to say they were all folded the same..... just an observation.

Mine is the same as you described.  Now I wonder how many are out there and if the BIN price is wishful.

I think it is VERY wishful, who's to say it isn't a reproduction someone bought and folded, ripped a couple corners and claims it is an original. Just a thought

This is a pretty common poster as far as original shelby posters are concerned . I was at a shop in california in the 70s and they had stacks of them that they got when shelby went out of business.
