  Funny how some "come-lately" production could be worth more than most of the ones built "back in the day". no?

  I DO wish to point this out:  the two holes in the upper cowl on the left, my car, #0036 has those holes also.  This is the fourth 67 Mustang I heard about with those holes there.  NOT a burglar alarm item....
Although you may be correct in your assumption I would not use (at least if it were my car) the car in the auction to in anyway try and authenticate anything on your vintage Shelby. Frustration The authenticity of anything on the auction car is questionable at the very least relative to a vintage Shelby.

I am curious. According to the data plate on the door the build date is 15J. So, September 15, 1966 or 1967. I assume 66 which would make it a very early car versus 67 which would make it very late?

Since it is a repo tag on on a (not surer of the right term)  car with a new VIN  it could be Sept 15 2007 that the builders choose to use when they made the car

Might have been something that the builders thought that might be cute.

I imagine the letter came at the time when CS was trying to hijack the registery. This may have been done to show CS his "new" cars would have a home. In the end CS started his own club and registery. I'm sure he found it a lot more profitable to sell some paperwork and a signature rather than actually building a car.

So Ricks letter (dated 9/17/07) says, This letter is to verify that the production Legendary GT cars, recreations of Shelby Mustangs, will be contained in the next edition of the SAAC World Registry when it is printed.

The ad copy says, Included in the SAAC World Registry, indicating that this specific car is listed in the Registry.

Did those cars actually get printed in the SAAC Registry? Is this specific car listed? Or was that something that may have been planned, but never really happened? I didnt think SAAC kept records on cars like this.

Id look for myself, but my copy is buried in one of two rooms full of stuff at the moment, and would probably take all day to dig out. Im hoping someone else has quicker access to look this up.

Thanks,
Steve

The letter states they will be included in volume 2.  Has that been printed?  I only see volume 1, 4 edition from 2008 avaliable.

I think the 2008 registry is the most recent Cobra & GT40 book (no '67 Shelby Mustangs).

The most recent registry that would have '67 Shelby Mustang listings is the 2011 book with '65 through '67 Shelby's listed.

The only "continuation" cars I see listed in that registry are the 1966 convertibles.

The ONLY reason to keep them in a SAAC Registry is to keep track of them and have an "official statement of policy" that they are "continuation cars" and not to be confused with originals.

That is actually being somewhat generous. Even more generous to a PRE LAWSUIT environment.

WHY would anyone purchase one for more or the same then an original? That makes no sense whatsoever to me?

There also is some continued confusion between the "Shelby Registry" and the SAAC Registry. I think this just adds confusion to the facts and I would point out is not unintentional on the part of the sellers of "continuation" cars.

If I remember my basic psychology correctly, this sounds like "transference"?

Our's Registry actually exists in print and the cars are real. Not figments of somelse's immagination in an alternative Universe.

Their Registry exists apparently in some sort of "information cloud" like the Acoshic Records? Not even in a Microsoft Cloud.

Maybe we need to purchase an app from "them" to access it however the reality is you can not purchase access to something that doesn't really exist.

Are we going to get into a discussion of what true existence is and isn't also?

Apparently this complete thought of alternative facts by Shelby was the seed that has generated the current "alternative fact" theories of some current political philosophers? Shelby always was ahead of his time and somewhat of an alchemist himself?

Thanks. I guess that will teach me to speed read a topic when I'm sleepy.

I don't know? Are all the lawsuits on selling fictitious cars settled yet?
