Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the nice introduction and pictures. I didn't know the MKI 062 was for sale. Maybe it was a private sale.
The previous owner and I talked on many occasions in the past. I hope the family kept the black '67 Shelby GT350.

I'll send a follow up PM shortly on 062.

I like the photo of your SAAC MK1. I don't know much about them so thanks for peaking my curiosity, cool car.

Thanks for posting, and welcome to SAAC. Great cars and history !

In your two photos of the start of a race, is that the Partida de Las Seis Horas Peruanas, 1966 ? (spelling ?) The image of cars on

 track is that also the same event ?

I have the one photo, but not the one showing the drivers running to the cars, thank you !

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Peru?

You would be quite surprised the number of HiPo Ford/Shelby cars that are in Peru.
Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.

Of the 30 production MKI's built (plus 6 prototypes), 5 were shipped to Peru, all exported at the same time.
They were the first 1992 models built.

All 5 are still in Peru.
