Woody was in the Winter 2018 Shelby American magazine (see attachments below).   I wish I met him.  RIP.

Not Remington.   This is in Moon's shop before Shelby acquired Renentlow's shop and Remington to the payroll.  This is most likely one of Moon's guys.  I don't know a name for sure.

Also going tonight, downtown Salem Cinebar.

See you there Scott!

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Shelby registry?

Is there a way to see if a car in in the registry if you have a VIN?

You can buy the registry here:

Or contact the registrar like mentioned earlier. There currently is no online database for the 1968 cars.

When I saw this I thought I remember that # on a Cobra photo I have in my files. I have it noted as Riverside late 60's, it jives with the info in my registry. Now I have an i.d. on that car. Jim McCashin owned it at the time of this incident, does any one know if he survived this, looks bad.


I talked to Jim a couple weeks ago on the phone.

Yes, I tried to put the car owner and door owner together because I feel the car owner should own it.  Unfortunately it appears they were not able to come together on a price.  I don't know what transpired from their conversation.  I know they were having troubles connecting.....

The door owner acquired it from the estate of a body shop guy, Dennis Ercek.  That body shop guy worked on the car back when it was wrecked.

The door is for CSX3052.

This was recently on craiglist locally, that is how I found out about it.

This 1966 Shelby GT 350 has its original 289ci 8-cylinder engine mated to a factory 4-speed manual transmission. It has less than 100 miles since its Division II restoration by John Brown Thoroughbred Restorations. Its original body is refinished in the correct Wimbledon White with blue stripes.

The original and reproduction glass is etched with Ford Motor Company logos. Factory paperwork confirms this is an original 4-speed Shelby, while further documentation and photos indicate nine characteristics of the factory 4-speed prior to the vehicle’s restoration. This vehicle has more than 100 restoration photos, including photos of the matching Ford VIN on the inner fenders and engine block that correspond with that shown in the Shelby Registry.

Photos attached.

Why not just post these fake parts ads to the "Shelby Group" on Facebook?  They already have over 6,400 members.  Might get quicker results than starting a new group from scratch.  A lot of folks check their FB accounts on their phones at all times throughout the day.  The site is probably checked on a constant basis than most other apps on people's phones these days.

By the way, I report fraud through Ebay on all of these auctions and they just keep on running.   Obviously Ebay doesn't care.

Ask us about shipping and financing. Call text or email us anytime!Information Regarding the Shelby GT350The Shelby Mustang was built by Shelby America from 1965 to 1968 and from 1969 to 1970 by Ford Motor Car Company. The 1965 and 1966 G.T. 350s were delivered from Ford’s San Jose assembly plant with body in white for modification by Carroll Shelby’s operation originally located in Venice Beach and later at the Los Angeles International Airport.The 1965-1966 cars were the smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models. All 1965-66 cars featured the K-Code 271 horsepower 289 cubic inch engine that was modified to produce 306 hp. Marketing literature referred to this engine as the Cobra hi-riser due to its high-riser intake manifold. Beginning life as a stock Mustang with a 4-speed manual and 9? live rear axle the cars were shipped to Shelby American where they received the high-riser manifolds Tri-Y headers and were given larger Ford Galaxie rear drum brakes with metallic-linings. Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes were also added.For 1966 the GT 350 lost its Mustang tag and was marketed simply as the Shelby GT 350. The new model year also saw the introduction of four colors in addition to Wimbledon White which was standard in 1965. Now available were Sapphire Blue Ivy Green Candy Apple Red and Raven Black. Other changes included special rear quarter-panel windows replacing the factory extractor vents functional brake scoops on each side. While early 1965 cars had black engine blocks 1966 and later cars had their engines painted the regular factory Ford dark blue. The 1966 models came with a dual-exhaust exiting in the rear. Fastback production totaled 1373 cars with a list price was $4600. An additional 1000 special edition fastbacks were produced for Hertz.

Also listed on their site for $150k.

They also have 6S2372 which we have talked about extensively.....  :o ::)
