I know the car. Great driver and it was well bought. Long time East Texas collector owned it and the yellow KR vert that sold as well. Rick

I was able to confirm that the reserve for this car was originally $115K...that's a big swing to let it go!

And, me thinks me knows who bought it  Grin

How many times does a single digit 67 come up for sale?
How many single digit cars are available in the first place....?

Instead of looking what's negative on the car perhaps we should appreciate that one of the first 67s produced 50 years ago survived with it's original drive train and it still looked pretty decent....

I bet some car collector figured with the regional auction, a hurricane in FL and massive flooding in Houston it might be a good time to fly in and purchase it from a restless seller...

I wonder what 67 Shelby collector would have the insight to pull off such a caper....Huh?

Who could it be?

Bret

Actually, its my understanding that this car did not have an all original drive train...  Cry

  The low number won't mean a lot if there has been a pile of parts not correct for the build date involved.  I'm not saying this is the case.  I'd need to see it in person to determine this.

That's kinda what I was thinking.
I like Bret's reply earlier too...wish I had the time and funds to have done that.
The reserve that was mentioned seems more like it for an asking price to me.  Big drop I agree.

I love a man that says little but speaks volumes. Everyone dissing the car that its missing this and that, has a wrong caution fan sticker Grin stressing about its originality when some cool headed buyer walks in and snatches a bargain because of circumstances. That's how its done- well played!

I purchased #0004 I think in 1997 as a basket case from the Snakebite Bulletin. I think I paid $10,500 for it from a guy in York PA. It's been a long time but from what I remember it was all numbers matching. The previous owner was a contractor and had disassembled the car to do a full resto on it around 1987. He got in way over his head and had no idea how to finish it. It had an ISCA show car sticker on the back window so I believe it was shown at one time. Most of the paint when I got it was still very nice. It had ALL of the early pieces such as the correct metal frame hood and trunk lid, Correct early nose and headlight buckets, the one piece grille and inboard lights, correct early terminal block under hood, early block plate on underdash gauges without the screws, correct roll bar covering with the molded flares to fit the fiberglass panels, the red lights in scoops. a four point roll bar flat tailight panel, early aluminum tailight frames, early exhaust cut out trim rings etc. The only thing it did not have that I thought it should have was a flat gas cap. The other curious thing to me was the deluxe comfort weave seats instead of the smooth seats. They were mint and in original condition though. Since it was an early "showing car" according to the paper work I was unsure if the seats were correct or not. I restored the car and it came out real nice. From seeing the current pictures though it appears it was painted again due to the side stripes being located incorrectly. I know I had them right when I owned it. I traded this car for a 1968 Shelby GT350 convertible to Bill Collins sometime around 2003? Someone has added a supercharger to it since I owned it. From what I recall it was a very solid original body car with the correct Ford VIN stamped in the inner fenders and the Shelby VIN stamped into the Shock Towers.  It was a very neat early '67. You can't get much earlier that that one. I believe it shipped in October 1966. I probably have a bunch of old pics of it somewhere. Whoever bought it got a GREAT deal!
