Vastly different than when it sold Jan 2013 in Scottsdale, if this is really the same car.

Not mods I would make, but it is not my car.

The 2013 photos at Barrett-Jackson in it's original Nightmist Blue looked great. Now it looks like a customized Mustang, a nice one, but not for a Shelby.
At $299K that might be sitting around for a long time.

Brian, where did you find the VIN tag photo?  (Thanks for posting it!)

I was going to find a "Money Guy" to back me so I can buy up some 67-68 Shelby's and turn them into Eleanor's.  It would be cool to buy an Eleanor that is actually a SHELBY Eleanor.  Still might do it.

Incredible car. Not sure I would have started with a $150K (+/-) donor tho.

The dealer's name is Shelby. He is a long time Ford GT forum member with an extremely good reputation. For a while, he wasn't interested in any vintage iron. I guess that has changed, tho this is no longer "Vintage".

+1, would have made more economic sense to start with a base fastback.  Surprised that they chose to cut the shock towers out of an original Shelby, especially a GT500.

The vin tag is legit disregarding the patina which makes it look more so.

Richstang,

The VIN pic is in the eBay link, about 2/3 down through the pics as viewed on a PC.  I am a Jeff btw, if you were referring to my original post.

I guess when someone says "nicest GT500 in the country" I assume it to be original, not a restomod. My mistake for assuming I guess. Between this and the other restomod car at pretty much $300k I wonder why anyone would foolishly put money in restoring an original car? Much like the tri 5 Chevys and Corvettes that are worth more with big brakes and rack and pinion steering than original I guess.

Thanks Jeff.
I didn't see those lower photos, only the top ones that loaded up on the screen when I clicked on them
Sorry I mistook you for Brian.


I recall several years back at similar Black with White stripe Shelby selling at Barrett-Jackson for something like $280K. Maybe it had a Tasca installed 427?
No doubt these folks put a ton of work to in it to make it look as sharp and clean as it is. It's just hard to accept it as a vintage Shelby.

I'm not an engineer, but I've built a few race cars and I would not want to drive this one very hard. Unless I'm missing something, they've installed a real nice R&P IFS to the original front frame rails and what appears to be a three-link four-link coil-over rear end to the stock (reinforced probably) rear frame rails. They tied the front and rear frame sections together with what looks like 2"x2" square tubing with a cross brace for the transmission. The interior shows what appears to be a stock roll bar with no frame ties fore or aft.

Without the shock towers tied into the cowl with an export brace or an upper tube frame running back to a roll cage, I can't see how that chassis would be stiff enough to handle all that power. If they are relying on the fender apron connections to the firewall and the frame rail connections to the torque boxes it seems like there would be some serious flexing up front even with the rather modest frame ties. Might ruin that pretty paint job.
