Not mine, just sharing
Here is another that recently came up for sale.
As many know I'm still new here.
If it isn't the norm to makes posts like this please let me know.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Shelby-GT350-2004-RESTORED-Certified-by-Carroll-Shelby/162658070295?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D46089%26meid%3D29abe0a24a364334bb3080701ddd3fa4%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D162657532536&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109

(Taken from the eBay ad)

1967 Shelby GT350. #67201F4A02004.

Listed on behalf of Monte Shelton.
Located in PORTLAND, OREGON.

 This GT350 Mustang was completed by Shelby on May 4, 1967. Originally ordered without stripes and with FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING.  Shipped May 9, 1967 to Rivers Ford in Monroe, Louisiana. Sold to the first owner on July 12, 1967. Second owner purchased it in 1976 and performed the first ground-up restoration in 1978. Third owner purchased in 1989. Purchased by the most recent owner in 1990 at a Mustang Roundup meet in Bellevue, Washington.

 At the 1992 SAAC National Meet at Portland (Oregon) International Raceway, Carroll Shelby attended and ran laps in a Cobra with this car. A photo was taken at PIR turn #9 with the GT350 leading Shelby and the Cobra (see last photo in this listing.) Following the run, Carroll Shelby came to the pits and personally inspected the car, verifying its authenticity and signing the inside rear-view mirror, along with later signing photos of the car on the track. This car is listed on page 1037 of the SAAC Shelby Registry book. All tags and stampings are intact and original. The provenance is impeccable.

 In 2009, the owner set out on a meticulous frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration of this car to show standards, using all authentic NOS parts. He lavished hundreds of hours to bring this car back to showroom condition. No corners were cut and no expense was spared. The original 289 V8 engine and components, 4-speed transmission and suspension were completely rebuilt to spec. The body was stripped and painted in correct "Wimbledon White" and left without stripes, as original. All chrome was re-plated. The original wheels were fitted with new tires. Interior correctly restored. The result is spectacular. Please see photos of the quality of this restoration. Subsequently this Shelby has been shown at the Portland Roadster Show and Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance where it received First Place awards at both events.

 Mechanically, this Shelby is excellent. Runs, shifts, drives and stops as it should. A real pleasure to drive and yes, it's FAST.

 Since completion it has seen limited use and now shows just 48,575 miles on the odometer.

 Recently the owner unexpectedly passed away after 27 years of ownership and this Shelby is now being offered for sale. It would be the centerpiece of any serious collection. A realistic reserve has been placed on this car in keeping with its quality and rarity. Please bid accordingly.

WE WILL HAPPILY SELL TO BIDDERS WORLDWIDE.

 Thanks for looking and GOOD LUCK!

Research this car and read the history on this car and make sure you ask the right questions if you're interested in buying it - i.e.  Is it the original matching numbers motor, etc.

No, that's great that you posted this.  I saw this car and wondered myself why they are asking so much.  (It was listed with an asking price of $209k I believe somewhere else.)  Do original A/C cars (non- auto) go for that much of a premium?  Or is it the Carroll Shelby signed mirror that did it?  Hysterical

Given it's #2004, I'm guessing it wasn't originally an inboard light car.   Roll Eyes

I know it's minor but the instrument cluster lenses look odd to me.  They don't have the center grey pieces.

That's because there's no chrome in the instrument cluster! Then there is all the obvious errors in the engine compartment. It might be a very clean restoration, but this car is far from concours correct. For that commanding price it's offered at it should be factory perfect.

I'm not certain, but I wonder if that is the same Monte Shelton who drove the red #10 Cobra csx2290 in 1965?

I would bet on it.  Car and consigner are both from Portland area.  Monte Shelton still lives in Portland.
