Question:  How would you go about proving to the DMV that this is one of the Re-Vined 69 Shelby's and should have a 1970 Vin #?  You would have to hope that there is a "Classic Shelby Know It All" on staff and working that day because you know if the person behind the counter is under 30 most likely wont know anything about Shelby's and there is a 99.999% chance neither will their Boss.

I have been seeing a lot of 65-66, Plain Jane 6 Cyl Coupes, needing a LOT of work selling for $12K to $15K daily. 

  Autograph on their body:  already done.  There is an old Shelby American with the photo.  It was done at a convention.

This is that photo. I took it at SAAC 11, Dearborn in 1986. My Hertz car was just to the right in this line of cars.

I panicked though and didn't get the photo properly centered . . . .  :o

Where is the second Photo with that Girl?

I used to work on the C3 Corvettes when I used to turn wrenches for a living and were learned real fast to NOT pull the Vettes all the in on the Lift.  We had to put the Front Lift Arms under the Lower A Frames and the Rear Arms went as far back as possible.  Since the C3's were Front Heavy that's how it was raised or you cracked the Windshield as soon as the Front Tires left that ground.  My guess, that is what happened here, not thinking any different when it came to the Lift Set Up.

What if he just said that he was building a Mustang Fastback that will Resemble the Eleanor Mustang and painted it a different color?  There are many companies selling the Body Kits on Ebay, has she gone after THEM as well?

That’s interesting because the Shelby decklid will open just fine, no special springs and it uses the same fiberglass?
I thought one of the Deck Lids, either the GT/CS or the Shelby Convertible had a Contour Line about 3/8 Inch up from the Edge and that was how you could tell which one it was.  Am I remembering wrong?

Is this a Cobra on this Hauler?  If so, what does anyone know about it?

I think you will see a lot of big Companies do this, taking advantage of the Virus Pandemic to unload some Debt.

Thanks for posting, that's pretty neat, I wonder how it's bolted down ? on a convertible maybe they use  the latches at the

 windshield ?

Here's one I have in my files in England in the 60's, looks like a convertible with a fast back, there is that seam at the rear fender ?

Nope, that's an actual Fastback.  No break at the Windshield Top area.

1978 Lucano

The Lucano is a two-seat sports car, based on the European Escort, which resembles the TR-7 in its wedged lines. The front-mounted engine could range anywhere from 1.1 to 2.0 liters.

Looks like the beginnings for the EXP Escort for the USA.
