Have you contacted the SAAC Registrar for the '66 GT350's;

Howard will check that the Ford number you provide matches the factory records. He'll give you the known info on your car. Sometimes he has copies of the original shipping invoice. As far as "documenting" your car beyond that you'll need to have someone put eyes on it and inspect it. If it's a driver that may be more expense than return. If it's a 100 point restoration with no judging record you should have one of the SAAC judges fly in and check it out to maximize your return. Repro parts and wrong date codes can greatly effect value as much as shoddy workmanship. Also a past judging record is no guarantee since some unscrupulous sellers have been known to swap expensive genuine rare parts that cars were judged with for common cheap repro parts when selling.

It's not a 100 point car and the VIN was verified back in the 90's. She is a driver though.

I had the triplet 843 (no factory LeMans stripes). If yours was an over-ride car I'd be a player.

Happy to help if I can... I have been inspecting Shelby's for more than 40years and have 5 early Shelby'
s of my own. Perhaps others here at SAAC will chime in as to my experience of record. I own an Appraisal company and live in South East Michigan  my number is 734.231.7634 Kenneth Costella

I definitely recommend Ken Costella - he knows his stuff, and especially Shelby Mustangs.   I used to have him appraise all of my collector cars when I lived in Michigan.  Always wise to keep current photos and appraisal on file with your insurance company.

I am sure you have thought of this - but contacting the previous owners listed in the registry may yield some results? (history, pics, docs)

  This is why sending to the registrar - often - is so important. 
  Does the registrar know who you bought the car from and when?  The registry contains mostly items owners have sent in.  They are not searching for items for each car for kicks.

Beauty.  Makes me want to put an R model valence on mine!  I think I spotted under rider traction bars in the second photo at speed.  I took the torch on 843.  Over riders...
