Lots of dust/dirt on it, can't make out back side window. Firefights are indeed heroes......

A '66.  It has rear brake scoops.

Somebody from SOCAL should know.  Big house with lots of garage space.  What happened after they got it outside?  There has to be a good continuing story here.

Normally they just sit there until the owner returns in cases like this (unlike a single structure) there are too many other things to deal with. Owner might not even know it made it through the fire.

In this case I understand the car is still sitting out away from the structure - described as 30 ft/yrds away. Don't know if it was damaged.

I could be wrong but thought that I heard it was Katlin Jennerís car.

My first guess is its a fake.  Its an educated guess but I think Ive seen the car around my neighborhood before.  The fireman are wearing LA County station 65 hats which is located just off Mulholland Hwy in Agoura Hills which is where I spotted the possibly discussed car once and talked to the driver for 2 seconds thru our car windows. 

I politely asked him if it was a real GT350, after pausing he said yea, I asked him what number it was, he broke eye contact  and said 427 (one of the first numbers I think of when talking Shelby American). The way he replied, that number seemed to just come off the top of his head.  I often deal with people who greatly stretch the truth (being nice here) and I believe that is the case here.  I believe the car may have had the same center caps over the Torque Thrusts as when I saw it.  I checked the latest registry when I got home and yes 427 was white and its last reporting was somewhere on the east coast

Yes of course it could have relocated but speaking as if I was working here, "based on the totality of the circumstances my belief would be that it was not a true Shelby American vehicle". Ill be back out there in an hour and Ill swing by Station 65 and try to find out exactly where that pic was taken.

  Maybe they needed to push it into the swimming pool.  Seems nowhere else is safe.

Appropriate and witty observation!
"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"

Itís not real. Its a Non K code with blue and white pony interior, AC and my 5 year old could tell you itís not a SFM.

Like J. Speegle said though, looks like a fun car. Glad the car is safe.

Almost lost our 71 280SL with a dead battery in Calabasas. Got the SLS and S63 conv and the E63 out. The garden hoses do come in handy. No doubt the fire fighters are great guys! The Shelbys were locked away safe in a different location

I found the address  from google maps  but  cannot  find owner info .
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 .
