Hi, All,

I DO have an affiliation with this car  ;D Here's a better link to the actual listing on Mecum's site vs. the HMN feeder:

https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0120-396993/1969-shelby-gt500-convertible/

I've asked Mecum to edit to PW part I don't know where they got that from. As for the EFI it was always my plan to have a fellow Wisconsinite buddy of mine (ahem! PETER  :D) help me return it to the way it was at Shelby with a Conolec system on it. But, try as I might as Pete mentioned he is trying to source a Conolec car of his own so is holding tight to the EFI bits hidden under his mattress for the time being.

So, 0006 remains today as it was when it was shipped to the Hertz Corporation in late '69 with its original CJ intake and carb on it currently.

It's a great car and if anybody is heading to Mecum please look me up- I'll likely be standing guard near the 13 cars I'm bringing (yikes) and it would be great to see some SAAC folks!

Happy Holidays to you all,

Colin

Only thing that would make that car look any better would be my boney ass sitting in the drivers seat , in my driveway of course ! Damn I wish I could hit just one lottery :)

Thanks David and Corbins, yes, hard to sell off these cars but I'm losing a 17,000 foot building and being forced to downsize a bit. They are all really great cars and I hope they find good homes- maybe even ones that will let me visit  :)

Best Holiday Wishes to all of you and yours!
