Mike Gray is a member of the local Ford club here in Central NY. I haven't seen him in a while, but he had some good stories about racing this car back in the day.

Well, I do have a 65 shaped gap in the shed Smiley

Jokes aside, given the tax penalty we face at these sort of $ when importing (LCT @ 33% on anything over USD 50k), makes sense to get something local and 65's don't pop up too often

Did you see this at the auction - https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2017-shannons-melbourne-summer-classic-auction-featuring-the-ian-cummins-collect/S586H4BS01CG00W7/, car was locally built about 10kms from my house and ran in the 1951 Australian Grand Prix, nice bit of history

cheers

Yep, if 5S227 was in the US and even if it sold for a modest $400k USD it would be close to $700k AUD after $ conversion and taxes  HeadSpin
So if you can get it for $500k AUD here at auction you would be laughing. Smiley
Just the stamp duty for registration on 500k would be 20k here in QLD
Yes , saw that Smith Special , cool car.

For posterity

https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2017-shannons-melbourne-summer-classic-auction-featuring-the-ian-cummins-collect/ZCS97KI9MEACC29C/

Description and Price Guidance up (that's about $US385k-$430k)

HISTORY

Sought after first year Shelby Mustang
Dealer prepared drag car with interesting history
Restored by specialists Cobra Automotive Inc.
From the Estate of the Late Ian Cummins

One of nine dealer prepared drag cars built in 1965, chassis SFM227 was destined by Reynolds Ford in New York State; known as “Super Horse” and piloted by Mike Gray at drag strips in Canada, Cicero and Indianapolis (his signature can be found on the underside of the boot lid).  

Holder of six records at venues across North America and the 1966 Canadian National Street Eliminator title, the Mustang was featured in Hot Rod magazine and Charles R Morris’ book “Total Performers – Ford Drag Racing”.  With the history documented in the SAAC’s World Registry, SFM227 was sold to Charles C Brown III from New York, a guitarist with Van Morrison who converted the car to Webers and used it for autocross events.  

The Shelby was subsequently converted to GT350R specification for vintage racing and campaigned widely by New Yorker Robert Aliberto before undergoing a total restoration by renowned specialists Cobra Automotive Inc. back to original drag specification on behalf of Australian enthusiast Paul Blackie.  With all work fully documented, the Mustang was completed in June 2012 and subsequently imported to Melbourne, joining Ian Cummins’ rapidly expanding Shelby collection in February 2015.  Featured extensively in print (including an article published in Unique Cars), this fabulous 1965 Shelby Mustang is thought to be one of just seven examples currently resident in Australia and comes with a detailed history file including import papers, a storyboard and CD documenting the restoration. A significant 1965 Shelby no to be missed, it will be offered for sale unregistered.

I am going along to the Auction (not bidding on this) but if anyone wants to send me the $, happy to have a crack  Smiley

cheers
