Not mine, just posting.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Shelby-Mustang-GT500-Fastback/162657532536?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D41375%26meid%3D3b7dced1fd574b87bb32188f08a2c4c4%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D122674460453&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109

Maybe a forum members car?
Sorry if posted already but seems like it recently went live and I don't see it in another thread already.

I don't believe this car has been offered recently.

The VIN portion given (67400F2A00xxx) does indicate a GT500 - 4-spd - Nightmist Blue - black interior car, but nothing matches that built in '66 and shipped in Feb.
The ad is written in a vague manor with no full VIN, no build date, no ship date, and no Marti report available.

Keeping the Ford VIN private, I get.

The SAI #? I don't get it.

I PM'd him through eBay and got no answer so far.  I'll post if he does respond.

If the VIN given is accurate, then it would be #0185 - #0999 as they are showing two zeros "67400F2A00xxx".
That only narrows it down to about 34 Nightmist Blue cars, assuming it is the original color.

I'm surprised to read no Marti report.
The seller obviously knows what one is.
It really takes a lot of work to get one!!  Come on!

I run across sellers all the time who have no clue what a Marti report is.
I ran into a seller yesterday who I asked if they had proof their car was a GTA and they responded "It's a GTA"
I said that's great but again do you have proof and explained what they could have to back up their claim etc.
They responded asking me to never contact them again! LOL

Rich, I emailed the owner of #185 to ask is his car. EDIT: He replied that this is not his car.
The "brief history" info and dates in the ad;
"...A brief history – The car was built in late 66 delivered to dealer mid Feb. and sold to the first owner in Mar. of 1967 within 6 months of ownership the car was hit in the front by a drunk driver.

And the dates/footnotes in the registry don't seem to match with car #185, nor does the location (unless he moved or sold the car), could it be another car?

I heard back from the owner.  He is not sure if he is ready to disclose the Shelby number.  I patiently explained to him the need to display the car to the public if he is serious about selling the it.  I also invited him to join the conversation on this forum thread about his car.  Hopefully, he will understand that the folks on this forum are a much better potential buyers pool than eBay alone.  Let's see what happens.

JD, sorry for the misunderstanding.
I didn't mean it was #0185, but rather the VIN number was between #00185 and #00999 with the VIN given ending in 67400F2A00xxx. That is how I narrowed it down to approximately 34 possible cars within the timeframe given. (The highest number NB car built in '66 was #00315.)

Taking another look and eliminating other cars already in my files I can get it down to 20 NB GT500's, built in 1966, but none of those were shipped in Feb (according to the registry).
Only #00311 was shipped in Feb, but it was recently restored with lemans stripes and had 10-spokes in those post restoration photos.

This car in the eBay auction has the correct flat tail panel and valence with trim to fit in the early half of the builds. As the seller noted the front was hit, so that explains the straight grille instead of a slant grille for an early car.

I've been writing back and forth with the seller.  He seems like a very nice fellow.  He is a bit concerned with the car not being picked apart here on the forum.  I can't image where he got that idea from???
He did tell me that although it is not being advertised as a concourse restoration, he does feel that he did do an above average restoration at minimum.  

Here are the caveats, the car does have a history of being in a head on accident, and being raced over the years.  As such, if I understand him correctly, he doesn't have the original inner fender sheet metal anymore nor the car's original Shelby plate.  Yeah, we all known that is a tough situation.  Still, I'm sure there is a market for this car, somewhere.   Undecided

Take that for what it is and if you are still interested, bid accordingly.

Lack of the original inner fender(s) might explain the lack of the Marti Report...

Yes, I don't think he has the inactive SJ Vin number.
