Up For Auction / Re: 1 of 6 '70 GT500 convertibles.

The subject of the raised clock binnacle was brought up in the commentary.

What is the story on that?
Most likely talking about the add on air components of that particular car which requires the clock to protrude unlike the more conventional factory air that the other yellow cars (excluding the one 4 speed) had which components fit behind dash panel allowing the clock to be recessed .

If I just had to add A/C, I would have deleted the clock rather than have that binnacle.

Extremely beautiful car . Do you think the photographer didn't see the tow hook hanging down when taking the front picture? ::)
;D ;D First thing I saw and an easy fix so you wonder why people don't. The guy has his number wrong and one guy was hung up on the 1 of 6. I believe his drag pack numbers for 70 are wrong. I corrected him on the 1 of 90 instead of 1 of 70 70s made so then he quotes the CJ forum numbers of 1 of 90. I am at the point in that I hate myself because I can pick apart whats wrong with a beautiful car like this to be concours but am keeping my mouth shut on the auction. I'm sure, Bob, that you can find more than I can also.  :) . Gary

For the seller, it is just product that needs to be moved at the highest margin.

This 1967 Shelby GT500 is one of 2,048 fastback examples produced for the model year and was completed on February 17, 1967, before being sold new by Ron’s Ford Sales in Bristol, Tennessee. The car spent its early years in the Gastonia, North Carolina area and was acquired by a Shelby American Automobile Club member in Grantsboro, North Carolina in 1980. A mechanical restoration carried out between 1982 and 1987 included the installation of a 427ci “side-oiler” V8 that was purchased from Holman Automotive. Additional work included rebuilding the close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, installing a new 3.50:1 four-pinion limited-slip differential, and overhauling the suspension, brake, and exhaust systems using rebuilt and new-old-stock parts. In 1992 it was purchased by a Mississippi SAAC member, whose 27-year ownership included commissioning a repaint in the original shade of Lime Gold in 1996 and moving the car to Virginia in 2007. After being acquired by the seller about six months ago, the car received a new water pump, belts, and hoses. GT500 number 0759 is listed in the SAAC Shelby Registry and is now offered with a copy of its original invoice, invoices from the 1996 repaint, photographs of the car from the 1970s, an owner’s manual, and a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name.

Funny commentary

This 1970 Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible was sold new by Minar Ford of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and was refurbished under previous ownership before being imported to Canada on its acquisition by the selling dealer in 2017. The car is finished in special-order Grabber Yellow over black vinyl, and power comes from a 428ci Cobra Jet V8 paired with a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission and a Traction-Lok differential with 3.50:1 gears. Additional equipment includes a white soft top, optional heavy-duty competition suspension, a Tilt-Away steering wheel, a period Pioneer AM/FM/eight-track stereo, and more. The transmission was re-sealed in January 2020. This final-year GT500 is reportedly listed in both the SAAC registry and the Shelby American database, and is offered with a factory order sheet, a dealer invoice, original service booklet and service records from 1975 to present, a Deluxe Marti Report, and transferrable Ontario registration.
