5S558 For Sale
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:40:22 PM »
I found this website today on Virginia Mustang's Facebook page of 5S558 being advertised for sale.   Very nice photos.  Nice car.  I saw this car at Pebble Beach in 2015.

Here is the car in the 80's sitting in my neighbors front driveway.  It is the car that got me hooked on mustangs, and specifically fastbacks.  I stayed awake many nights thinking of how to restore that Shelby.  I am so glad it is back to better than showroom condition.  Now if only the lottery would hit, I would fulfill my dream...

Since I can not attach a photo here is a link

I wonder if those are repop black plates? The 2008 title shows a series that would be on the blue/yellow plates.

I believe the plates are most likely authentic for two reasons.

First the picture of the 1973 Registration lists the plate number RRW 834 and it does not appear to be "doctored".

Second the car was delivered to Warren-Anderson Ford in Riverside along with three other cars and my license plate records shows that one of these cars received a plate with the RRW prefix.

I can tell you that the original plates were still on the car when it was sold form the original owner.  I can not find a period picture of the car that includes the plates...  I will keep looking.

I have seen a couple of older pictures of the car but they are poor quality and do not clearly show the plates.

I hope you do find something in your files.

there was a whole thread on this car on the old forum, including pictures just after bought from original owner. But alas they are all gone.

I presume that this is a restored car rather than an original survivor?

Yes completely restored, although it was a very complete car when restored.

shouldn't this chassis have white overspray?  not just black?
