SFM6S2393. To Be Auctioned Off
« on: October 18, 2020, 06:21:51 PM »
This car has one of the worst stances I've ever seen on a '66 Mustang, and what about that '69 rollerbar?   ???

1966 SHELBY GT350 CONTINUATION

The car is the last '66 GT350 convertible Carroll Shelby ever commissioned. Shelby built four convertibles in 1966, twelve continuation convertibles with Beverly Hills Mustang in the 80s, and then this car in 1990.

It certainly is unique  ;)

Is this the one that was not licensed by Shelby or had the license permission revoked and periodically comes back up for auction? It also was used in a magazine car cover with CS, I believe. 8)

98SVT - was 06GT

First of the CS continuation car saga. He reactivated his mfg lic and J Brunk of Beverly Hills Mustang built the cars. They had to be 80% new to qualify as "new" manufacture. They were not a licensed build but an actual SA manufactured new car.. They were all junk and needed a lot of work when Brunk got done with them. There were 12 4 for Brunk, 4 for CS and 4 to sell and pay for all 12. Brunk had some health problems and car builds were real slow.

Ponysite for the win. Not one of the 12 Shelby/Brunk manufactured ones - but one built when CS realized he could make easy money just selling you a license to build your own Shelby.

Ah, the Lenny Shabes clone.  Thanks for posting, specially noting that it does not have an authorized Shelby VIN.  It  keeps popping back up for auction for sale to the uninformed.

In the Lenny Shabes story, Carroll’s name wasn’t even spelled right. Spelling in that story was:
Caroll,  missing an “R”.

And misspelled more than once🙄

Is this car titled with 2393 or its original ford vin?
If 2393 how did they get that done.

I was there at the 6th annual Palm Springs Road Races and Shelby Roast NOV 16-18 1990 where the guy had the car on display for the first time in the vendor area. It was a painted chassis and had a new at the time Ford roller cam crate engine on a stand next to it. I had a long talk with him . He was trying to get deposits on future built cars. He hadn't finished the first one yet. It never had a tag issued  from Shelby then or ever. A Shelby tag appeared on the car seemingly by magic later.  Back in the day rumor had it that CS wanted 10,000.00 per copy licensing fee. The deal fell through when he couldn't come up with the money. I am thinking he wanted 70K in 1990 for a completed car. He didn't seem to have too much Shelby car knowledge and came off like sounding like a con man. I have seen the car in numerous auctions in the past which seemed to be the venues of choice given just the bare minimum of leading details where released and not time enough to research them before it would cross the block. The story was always spun that it was a real Shelby. I always got a kick out of listening to the BS of each owner at the time was spurting out trying to pass the hot potato off to the next guy.

With a large enough donation to the current CS Licensing group, it might get a pass as a Shelby vehicle and put in their "Shelby Registry", but not in the SAAC Registry.  It is a continuation only in its continual effort to be recognized as something that it is not. But it is a nicely modified Mustang convertible.   It's greatest value is probably in its convoluted history. It needs a "WANNA B" personalized license plate.   8)

I found out this past January's BJ auction that the Eleanor licensing fees were 35K per car. I wonder what the current Shelby American INC. licensing fee for a car like the one in question would be?

I guess Denice Halicki learned something about licensing fees from the CS Licensing folks. 8)

Isn't this Rick Nash's car? Rick has had many Shelbys over the years and IIRC he has a red cont car and says it was the only red car made(continuations). Rick's 66 GT350(red)FB went for 195K many years ago at BJ and the same time his 68 GT350 LG FB brought 130K(143K) which I think was an auction record for a 68 GT350 FB . Both cars I believe were SAAC gold in 2009(?). Anyways I think he sold both and bought this car and I think Jeff James also did work on it. Rick is ENGINEER here on the forum and maybe will chime in.

his 66. https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1966-SHELBY-GT350-FASTBACK-80909

his 68 (sold twice-2010 and then 2014 this time for more $$) https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1968-SHELBY-GT350-FASTBACK-161621
