NOT MINE. (Posting for discussion)

1969 Shelby GT350 on Bring A Trailer.  Here is the auction link:

BaT Essentials
Lot #5056
Location: Belmont, North Carolina 28012
Chassis: 9f02m480335
92,700 Miles Shown, TMU
351ci V8
4-Speed Manual Conversion
Elite Marti Report
Original Invoice
Restored in 2002
Private Party or Dealer: Private Party

This 1969 Shelby Mustang GT350 is powered by a 351ci V8 and was converted to a 4-speed manual transmission during a 2002 restoration. The included Elite Marti Report indicates that this example was originally equipped with an Automatic, and retained options include Gulfstream Aqua paintwork, Ford Traction-LOK 3.25 rear differential, a white vinyl interior with high back buckets, and a sport deck rear seat. An included show report notes some deviations from stock, including Shelby branded valve covers, the replacement painted hood, the bumper-less front. The owner has had the car for 16 years, and a provided invoice shows the car was originally delivered to Florida. This Shelby GT350 is being represented by a friend of the owner and the car is sld with a clean North Carolina in the current owner’s name.

The car was repainted in its correct Gulfstream Aqua with Shelby graphics. The show report notes a few paint blemishes, an incorrect antenna, and that the front bumper rubbers are missing. Of the 2,366 Shelby Mustangs sold in 1969, 824 were GT350 Fastbacks.

The hood has been painted the body color instead of the matte black specified on the original window sticker and Marti report. The attached show report notes that the hood is a reproduction item, though it is of the correct type.

The Marti report indicates that this example was originally equipped with White-Knitted bucket seats and a sport deck rear seat. A fire extinguisher is mounted to the rollover hoop/seatbelt bar, and GT350-branded mats are fitted. The odometer shows 93k miles, though true mileage is unknown.

The 4-speed manual transmission swap included a Hurst shifter. Carroll Shelby’s signature is present on the glovebox door and auxiliary Stewart Warner gauges are mounted below the console.

Power comes from a non-original 351ci V8 sending power to a Traction-Lok differential. The included Marti report shows that this car was originally equipped with an FMX automatic, which was replaced during the 2002 restoration. The attached show report notes that the valve covers, radiator cap, cooling system hoses and clamps, and the headers are incorrect. The correct air cleaner housing for the Shelby hood is fitted, and includes correct decals. Since the report a PCV valve has been fitted to the left valve cover.

Numerous photos of the underside are provided in the gallery below. The front A-Arms are noted as incorrect.

Photos of the 2002 restoration are neatly organized in a binder that will go to the new owner.

"The hood has been painted the body color instead of the matte black specified on the original window sticker and Marti report."

I'm certainly no expert but I was unaware that a 69 Shelby could be had with a blackout hood.  Or is that data plate code left over from a regular Mustang/Mach 1 data plate?
