The best in the business!  Peter Klutt runs his business with the utmost integrity!  They have restored two 67 GT500 for me and I have sold a few cars to them.  Chris Simon does a great job running the restoration side of the business.  He is awesome to work with and knows his stuff!  If you are planning on buying a car from them they are straight shooters!!

Thanks, I have a couple of cars that I am thinking of selling and wondered if they are good to work with.

I know a family that sold them three cars and I believe they were very happy in their dealings with them.

They seem to be a very well established business, which certainly has a great collection of vehicles.  Lot's of eye candy.  But like anyone trying to sell you something, Caveat Emptor.  Having a car checked out by one of the well recognized Shelby experts, can pay off in spades.

Yes know EXACTLY what you are selling. 100% original no rust CA car vs one with chinese floor pans. Correct date coded stuff. Original vs repro parts. That way when a guy says that not right and it's going to cost x to put it right you can counter with your experts report. Anybody that is going to buy your car for resale will start at 1/2 value. It's your job to get him to an acceptable price. Consignment isn't always a good thing. He may use your car to generate traffic for some rust bucket pig he's been trying to unload with the this one is $100,000 but I can let you have this one for only $80,000.

They did my car.  I write poems and commission paintings about my car.  Enough said.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

You might be thinking of Shelby Legendary Cars which is a different company (affiliated with Shelby Distribution USA and Hillbank Motors).
