I just purchased #78 and it has the hand engraved vin plate. 

Richstang,

Is #78 on your list?

#78, shelby101, is a running driving car, #11 not so...

Sorry, I'm ashamed to say I don't know the build date but would love to find it out.  Is that in the registry?  It wasn't in any of the documentation I can find that came with the car, but I may not have it all.

Congratulations on your car a rare Bronze car.

San Jose build date is listed in the 2011 Registry as 10/21/66 and the Shelby completion date as 10/31/66.

Suggest you contact Dave Mathews the SAAC '67 Registrar he can probably fill you in on more...dmathews@prodigy.net

You may want to get a Marti report on your car.  :)

Definitely, but for now I am going to drive it and bang through the gears for a few years.

Hey guys, thanks a lot on the details, I really appreciate it.  She definitely isn't bronze any more but it is great to know her origins.  I will definitely reach out to Dave to get more details.  Thank you all very much!

As rare as bronze is.... you just might want to consider taking it back.

In my opinion, all the light colors (Lime Gold, Burnt Amber, Brittany Blue) look poor in the original faded paint and spectacular in fresh modern paint.
