1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Door from 2564

Now that he has photographed the tags for his story, the responsible thing to do
would be to remove them and send them to SAAC

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: original engine v/s non original?
« on: January 18, 2019, 01:28:17 PM »
Hi All,
  As the original poster, many thanks to the folks who took their time to share their vast
experience on this topic . I am sure there are some who have bought and sold many Shelbys and know
what different buyers want and how different things affect prices.  We have bought and will most likley sell
our shelbys at some point and can benifit from the opinion's given here.
My takeaways by importance:

       1) Solid original body with all or most original sheetmetal.
       2) Born with engine. 10-20% premium added or deducted, amount determined by price of car.
       3) Remaining original Shelby specific items i.e. rear ends, intakes , carbs etc. the more the better.
       4) investors and pure enthusiasts can want or tolerate different things.
     Thanks all.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / original engine v/s non original?
« on: January 15, 2019, 07:21:13 PM »
Hi All,
I know this has been asked before but I would like to ask for opinions in a slightly different way.
So you have 2 identical 67 GT-350's .  Car "A" has born with matching engine .  Car "B' has a correct
engine but not original to the car.  If there is a price difference for car "B" typically how much less should it be?
Also would this be a large negative on buying car "B" as far as desirability is concerned ?
Any opinions much appreciated!

I contacted the original poster as I live in Denver and know
a guy in Firestone , Co.  who has a 66 Hertz car.  seems likely
it's his old Shelby . Hopefully it will turn out to be.

We are the third owners after Hertz of 6S715 having owned it 20 years , the owner before me 22 years.
We Had plenty of chances to sell. Might be tempted to trade into a nice 67 350 who knows.

something doesn't look quite correct about this car , better check the numbers before buying.

The Lounge / Shelby Museum show 2018

Hi All,
So I fired up 6S715 and went to the Shelby Museum show last Saturday, I believe there
were 100 or more cars in the show and everyone seemed to enjoy the event. I happened
to be standing behind the winner of the new Shelby won in the drawing , he was pretty excited. If you
are in the Denver area the museum is a must see as it is full to the top with genuine Shelby's, Cobras
and GT40's.

Hi All,

The Lounge / Re: What has happened to Shelby prices?
« on: June 25, 2018, 07:01:49 PM »
I agree with most of the above.  I bought my 66 Hertz 20 years ago because I loved the cars and always wanted one since I rode in one in high school about 1970, its my 3rd Shelby.  None were bought for investments and the fact that they have risen in price is just a bonus . If the car drops to zero dollars tomorrow it would not be a great day, but I would still like the car as much as I did 20 years ago.

I would suppose the next logical step would be tributes of tributes, clones of clones and replicas of replicas
