Wanted to Buy / WTB '67 Shelby Steering wheel
« on: March 02, 2022, 10:23:16 AM »
Need correct wheel for '67 Shelby.  Sounds like there are a couple types, looking for brushed center, short tabs.
Prefer a wheel not needing restoration. 

I have a '66 EFFPI wheel in perfect condition to trade if intested.

PM me please.

The Cincinnati Concours Invitational is truly a class showing.
We were accepted by the Invitational committee for a factory werks car we have.
The Invitational is first class all the way and politics seemed to be non-existent.
A very enjoyable and welcoming group.
I would recommend that a person participate in the pre showing events, one was at the airport as I recall.
Against all odds with competition from Porsche, Mercedes, Corvettes, Lambo's etc, we managed a Blue Ribbon in the factory werks race class and a rather large 1st place crystal trophy in another class.

We would highly recommend anybody with a Shelby, Cobra or GT 40 to enter and participate.
Congrats to SFM5S159 for being a recruiter for the event !

Thank you for the kind words about our concours. 
I am also a judge, and no, there aren't politics that I'm aware of anyway.  Just a sold group of people in the mid-west lucky enough to host a world-class event with some world-class automobiles.

Do you have a Marti Report for the car?  What is the Ford production date?

I've been attending collector car auctions for about 30 years (not as long as a lot of you I know...) and for maybe 25 of those years I walked away thinking "people are crazy, always over paying".
The it occurred to me that maybe I was looking at things incorrectly.  How was it that I was right about prices (they were always too high) and all of those buyers were wrong? 
The market is what it is.  If after a long time period you think everything you look at is overpriced, it may be time to adjust your thinking. 

If you are looking at spending $250k on a car just because you like it, you likely can afford another $20k.  Just spend the money and don't look back.

I use it to motivate myself to earn a little more.  I figure I can always make a little more money!

Just find one you like and buy it.

Original '67 nose for sale.  Purchased years ago for a project but we went a different direction. 
Usable but it will need work.

I'm confused on which version you are making-for outboard cars?

I had some interest in a couple of parts, but never received a reply.  Probably better off anyway.

I wonder the same thing...was it real money? 
Auctions can be tricky.  Even when a car "sells" there are instances when its "sold" to a friend of the auction house, the commission isn't paid by the "buyer" and the car pops up again at another auction a year later. 

This seemed like a pretty strong bid for the car, but I didn't see it in person.  Non original engine I assume, but the car has some neat in-period history.  Seemed like a fair price to me?
