I just love fake window stickers, when they try to add special items like "G" series tires, ten spokes, some special paint color?, 200mph speedo, ten spokes, etc... not even close to reality. I'm a bit surprised they left off the 5 speed transmission. I guess that would have been too obvious?

Hopefully, the description is a little better than the window sticker.

+1  because it doesn't look like a shade of highland green in the picture that I am used to seeing.

So thinking out loud here- Replacing an enemic 302 with a BOSS 351 is a bad idea?

If it has a B1 motor that would actually be pretty cool.

I remember this car from saac 23 I believe, owner was very nice and I bought some parts from him when my water pump started leaking right before my open track.

Im not slamming the car or owner. To each his own. Modified is fine, just dont try to pass it off as original. I cant see any other reason to create a fake window sticker, unless your intent is deception.

But, I drink a lot, maybe someone has a better explanation?

This looks like John Barnes Shelby. I talked to him at SAAC 30, July 2005, and saw his Shelby up close. Has a retro look of modifications that could have been done back
in the days. I believe he said that it was purchased as a shell in 1978 and has NOS
front fenders. Heck, I kind of like the transformation. Nothing wrong with personalizing a Shelby the way you want it. It's a personal choice.

Agree, especially when the buck tag shows clear as day that the car was Lime Gold.

Yes, that is him, remember parts of that story.
