anyone  know  this car ?
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

That is painful to see.  Jim Morrison's car with a red repaint?  LOL.

- with a 68 stripe,68 rear antenna,maybe 68 steel wheels but 67 steering wheel ,deluxe seats door panels and no 68 rear marker reflectors. A real oddball.

Probably something in between. What with the shinny hub not too many vintage clones were able to source 67 Shelby steering wheels for their builds.

Judging by the driving style illustrated in the photo, or the downright bad luck (discounting driving style) is it any wonder that there is a 68 hood on it?  Replaced hood from a prior front end crash and could only find a 68 hood?

I've seen a few 68's with 67 Shelby wheels (including mine). When they were a hundred bucks across the counter, they were a very attractive deal.

It's just probably just me but I'd call it a '68 with a '67 wheel.

If you look close at the interior, you can see what appears to be a ‘68 Shelby center console.  The arm rest is very apparent.  My guess would be a ‘67 car dressed in ‘68 fiberglass.  It doesn’t appear to have signs of clips for lower rocker molding or fender wheel opening chrome like a ‘68 would have.  No fender marker lights help support the car as likely a ‘67.  Just an odd car with an interesting back story that we’ll never know.

It definitely is mixed.

No 68 corner lamps, 67 interior. 68 fiberglass. Can anyone make out a roll bar or harness? The likeliness that it isn't even a Shelby rises considerably without one. I suppose though that anyone's guess is as good as any other.

It's probably from 30 years ago?

Midnight auto parts never sleeps. I think they are still in business?

People did weird stuff back in the day with “Shelby parts”.Looked at a 67 gt 350 in the early 80s with a 68 console and some other 68 parts(owner of course insisted it was original AND questioned my Shelby knowledge-that was “fun”)
