Does anybody remember what happened in Texas that almost got Shelby himself taken down?
All regarding serial numbers and stories.
My good friend C Brown went down and bought some of the dealers inventory and a car or two.
Elenore Mustangs ?

ISN'T there a picture of this 67 race car when it was black in a SAAC topic to refresh memories? maybe page 6,  Shelby #1444 one in Chicago race car>> topic header?

Dennis loves to toss the  " HOLY GRAIL "  phrase onto many of his finds, hoping that will up the ante for potential buyers..and this car will be another. It always amuses me that he has always wanted  "one of these"  yet immediately puts it up for sale....just wondering Dennis, what is the going rate for   HALF OF A HOLY GRAIL ?... ::)

My gut tells me SAAC would NOT certify a car without its original VIN.

SAAC does not "certify" cars. They will issue you a letter that the Ford VIN you provided and stated is on your car matches the records they have from back in the day. They will not give you info from just a Ford or just a Shelby VIN.
This car is a prime example of fishing. They started with a Ford VIN and a SA # guess. When Dave said - nope wrong color and your sheetmetal dates are too early he let them know they had to go back to the drawing board. They moved onto a new method and searched for the batch of cars where the VIN would fit then looked for a missing car and got lucky. No one has mentioned if the sheetmetal dates would be correct for 1477.
Never forget there are some (said to be 28) "air" Cobras in the registry that were created from the mere fact that the original titles had been surrendered to CA DMV as totaled.
Don't worry Dennis bought the car right - now he's trying to bump the payday with a convoluted tale of ifs and maybes that he'll tell you "proves" it's a 1 of 1 Shelby worth far more than what he's asking for it. Never forget he's first and foremost a car salesman.
