Wrecked 66 GT350?
« on: May 30, 2019, 06:50:48 PM »
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-Ford-Mustang-Fastback/113766279316?hash=item1a7cffa894:g:S5MAAOSwPF9c1gez

Up for sale is a 1966 Mustang Shelby GT350 Fastback. It comes equipped with a 289 engine with an automatic transmission. The color is Wimbleton White with Blue Racing Stripes. The entire history on this vehicle is unknown. All that is certain is that its a Southern California Car that seems to have been well taken care of wright up until the accident. The motor does turn over. It will not start or idle because it has a hole in the gas tank that was made in the accident. The car comes with a SALVAGE California Title. It is sold AS-IS with no warranty! I have provided the VIN number to this vehicle, so buyers please do your diligent research on this vehicle before bidding. I don't know much about these classic cars, I am basing my information from what i physically see on this vehicle. All that I know is that it was towed to my storage yard after the accident. The owner and the insurance company released owner ship to me. I have title in hand.

C code Dearborn VIN given in the auction.  Not a real GT350.   Also has a 6S077 stamped on a SAI looking tag under the hood.

Credit to the seller though, he has updated the Ad (he actually seems like a genuine seller)

Now "Barn Finds" is presenting this as a legit Shelby.

A tip of the hat to Brian (singleton_ford here on the forum) who spotted this Barn Find listing & shared the link with me. Thanks, Brian.

The Southfield, Michigan plate screwed to the middle of the dash is another nice touch.  Probably a prototype...

  This is a true "glass ( not diamond) in the rough" alright. Nothing better than a pile of repop parts especially when they are wadded up. Why Fox news picked it up is even more ridiculous. Must be a slow day for other "important" news.

Well he's pretty much hinting that it could be a Shelby, playing dumb that he has no way to authenticate it...... however in big bold print he spells out if you're stupid enough to bid on it, you bought it. And you can't take legal action for the Shelby implication. Seems pretty sneaky to me. If he was on the up and up he would remove the auction and relist it as a Mustang with a bunch of reproduction parts sold as is with a salvaged title.

Especially with all the attention it's getting. I wonder if Fox news will interview the lucky stiff that buys it?
