That car was touched by Richard Rawlings.  That should be good enough for anyone, just skip the inspection and start bidding! ::)

The only thing he did was flip it.

The car looks pretty nice to me

I like it.  Looks like a 1976 time capsule.

You have vote as well.
If it was mechanically sound, replace the tires and enjoy it the way it is.

Easy now with the fan sticker! I really did use one to glue the shroud when I put my elbow on it. I wound up just locating an original and threw the repo in the trash can... :o :o :o :o

Interesting that they removed the smog pump but all the tubes and hoses in place.

The car was parked with ours at the 2018 Charlotte Autofair in the indoor 'Cars of Carroll Shelby' display.

Interesting story- I have owned a couple of original patina cars and currently own I think the oldest Shelby to come back alive... Sleeping Beauty.  The thing that we are faced to make a decision on is what do you do with it?  My 1963 Split window is/was one of the most original in the world according to the experts. I did not want to drive - show a car that had 45 years of dirt on it  :-[ To me that is the ultimate sin sorta like showing off your super model wife that hadn't had a shower in 45 years, gross... My 67 500 has been off the road since 1971 so it has had a lot of patina to endure. Both were brought back with as much shine as possible, but to make them look as they were back in the day that's how I feel they should be represented.

I know a guy who has a brand new 63 SWC. The most original. Never been titled. Came from his dad's dealership. Silver/ blue interior 300HP auto car. Do you know of this car? Terry Mcailis(SP?) of Pro Team has tried to buy this car over the years.  Gary
