The red GT350 doesn't have its original engine but all original sheet metal, except the hood, per the Registry.   Registry also mentions that there
was no indication that traction bars were ever installed but on the block, Steve M. pointed out underriders.    A pretty nice car, I thought.

Another thing Steve M. mentioned was how in 1966 the GT350s had clutch pack differentials instead of the lockers used in 1965. Ouch! But at least that's not something you could simply look and verify. One of the other commentators informed the TV viewers about the NON functional side scoops. And, yes, he emphasized the "NON" part of that. Apparently the camera guy knew better and tried to get a shot inside the scoop, but there was not enough light to see the hole for the ducting in the side panel.

A bit disappointing, but not the first time I've heard them giving incorrect information about a Shelby.

They have so much incorrect information all the time.

When the Ford GTX crossed the block they state there were 110 built but I believe the correct # built was around 32.

I guess they live by the motto "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with bullshit".  ;D

Yep...I agree.
It's not the first car off the line and it's not a hot performance optioned car. It certainly looks sharp in the Dark Blue / medium Blue interior but it's #0002.
A museum might want to have it as a conversational piece on display, but how many are really going to want it for so much more $$$ than another equally equipped car for a ton of cash less?

It should go in the Henry Ford museum and be parked next to 001.

The restoration is a bit aged/dated, though, ought to be brought up to current standards.  Looks like some repro parts were used.

 Similar year, different color (mine is Sapphire blue) #1306.1 was pretty much period correct. Mine has updated full roll cage, onboard extinguisher, etc to meet current SVRA standards.

Here are the FINAL SCCA points results for BP in the Northeastern Division for 1967-1970. (I can't vouch for any other history for lot #1306.1 beyond these years):

1967:
1st in points-Bob Fryar-Sting Ray-40 pts.
2nd in points-F.G. Fisher-Cobra 289-35 pts.
3rd in points-Tom Dutton-Corvette-31 pts.
4th in points-Martin Krinner-Mustang GT 350-28 pts.
5th in points-Donald Blatchley-Sting Ray-26 pts.
6th in points-Jim Sutter-Cobra 289-12 pts.
7th in points-Yale Kneeland-Mustang GT 350-11 pts.

There are a total of 23 participants in 1967 that scored at least 1 point (I'm not going to list the 8th-23rd points scorers....I'll just list all of the point scorers up to and including Yale Kneeland.)   All of the spellings (Cobra 289, Mustang GT 350....etc. are how they are listed in the SCCA Club magazines....all though I know as incorrect otherwise, and not listed as (Shelby GT 350, etc.).

1968:
1st in points-Gene Fisher-Cobra 289-49 pts.
2nd in points-Lou Statser-Corvette-48 pts.
3rd in points-Jim Sypherd-GT 350-30 pts.
4th in points-Tom Dutton-Sting Ray-22 pts.
5th in points-John Orr-Sting Ray-20 pts.
Tied for 6th in points-Ken Duclos-Corvette-15 pts.
Tied for 6th in points-Donald Blatchley-Corvette-15 pts.
8th? in points-Raymond Menapace-GT 350-12 pts.
9th? in points-Yale Kneeland-9th pts.

I'm not sure on how the SCCA places points positions if there is a tie in points....it may be determined by in region scored points vs. out of region or it may be that since both scored the same amount of points on the season as in Ken and Donald that they are credited for both finishing in 6th and the 7th position is left open (so on the 1968 season, Yale either finished 7th overall in points or 8th overall in points?

1969:
1st in points-Dick Stockton-Cobra 289-54 pts.
2nd in points-Fred Brandt-Sting Ray-37 pts.
3rd in points-Alex Cameron-Corvette-35 pts.
4th in points-John Orr-Corvette-27 pts.
5th in points-Donald Blatchley-Sting Ray-20 pts.
6th in points-Yale Kneeland-GT 350-15 pts.

1970:
1st in points-Thomas Rizzo-Corvette-51 pts.
2nd in points-John Orr-Corvette-36 pts.
3rd in points-Dick Stockton-Cobra-19 pts.
4th in points-Michael Nucera-Corvette-19pts. (had points scored out of region)
5th in points-D.M. Blatchley-Corvette-19 pts. (had points scored out of region)
6th in points-Ray Menapace-Shelby GT 350-16 pts.
? in points-Don Haines-Corvette-12 pts.
? in points-Bill Lannik-Corvette-4 pts.
? in points-Dick Powell-4 pts.
? in points-Scotty Dietz-Corvette-3 pts.
? in points-Dan Ferri-Corvette-3 pts.
? in points-Yale Kneeland-Shelby GT 350-3 pts.
