Hi, I apologize if there are already threads on this. Purchasing a 67 GT500 and the car comes with a well documented history. I have personally spoken to all the owners since the early 80's. The original owner hit a guardrail in the mid 1970's and when the fender was replaced, so was the inner fender. The car is registered in the Shelby registry, but because of the accident I do not have the Ford Vin only the Shelby VIN. Is there any way to get it given the history that I have on the car, would like to have a Marti report.  Any idea on anywhere else that the VIN may be.  This is my 1st Shelby, so trying to learn as much as I can. Thanks in advance.

Suggest contacting the SAAC '67 Registrar Dave Mathews, he is on this forum often.

Try sending him a PM (private message) "GT350DAVE"

Without giving anything away, have you looked under the passenger fender for the Ford VIN that is stamped there?  Chug a Lug

All else fails, as suggested above, contacting the registrar offline (via PM here) is highly recommended.

Are there any Shelbys that arent in the Registry? Am I reading too much into rhis, that when people say " its in the Registry" they are trying to convey some form of legitimacy to the car in question?

Buying a Registry from the registrar will also be very helpful. Some of your questions are answered (with pictures/diagrams) there.

I agree, it seems to be the "go to" line in any sales/auction advertisement. It has no value. The car's actual history inside the registry would be more helpful.

Best to talk to the registrar about a particular car before buying. Also having a SHELBY expert examine the car for any issues is the only way to go.

I think they are to an extent.

LIKE I SAID BEFORE VIN DETAILS LIKE THIS ARE BETTER DISCUSSED WITH THE REGISTRAR OR PRIVATELY AND NOT ON A PUBLIC FORUM. I was contacted  last week about just such a car described as immaculately restored 67 GT500 for 75k . No Ford or Shelby numbers up front. I suspect a repro tag too but had no way to confirm. I was asked by a second party if there was a way to find out the Ford numbers. The prospective buyer was a dealer who was wanting to flip the car and was trying to understand better the situation. The potential buyer didn't have to much detailed information other then the most basic info.  I said the no numbers ,the immaculate restored description and the price sent up a giant red flag. You know the saying, If a deal is too good to be true. No sin to flip it at all but if I don't know them I just refer them the the SAAC Registry and or the Registrar.
