Ask a Registrar / Re: 1968 Shelby American coupe certificate...Is it real?
« on: September 13, 2022, 11:24:45 AM »
I don’t remember there being a certificate of authenticity issued with original Shelby’s 65-70 when they were sold new, so any car with a certificate is probably a clone or later build. Original cars are just that “original cars”, problem with clones and continuation or whatever isn’t with original builder, it’s the resale later where it’s misrepresented as a “real” Shelby. Cars have become so valuable forgeries are common and profitable. My personal feeling is only the Shelby’s produced from 1965-1969(70) are the real cars and the most valuable as they should be, any others are clones, includes continuations etc. and shouldn’t be any where near as valuable. Continuations were built to make money pure and simple.

So any more info on the car? Figure out what happened or what was done to it?

Okay those pictures are clearly 1970 Shelby numbers. Those are entirely proper for a 1970 Shelby.

If those numbers are on a 1970 chassis, then something is improper.

Can you post some overall pictures? Pictures of the rear quarter panels? Pictures of interior ? Tail light panel?
Pic of rear end

I have pictures. It is now being restored. I will need permission from the owner to post pictures .
So new owner bought from Ellen, Bob’s widow? What have you figured out about the car? What actually happened to it? Marti report verified vin was built as 70 GT 500

Yes. It looks like a 1970 Mach I with apron 1969 Shelby VINS and other signs of a past 1970 Shelby. Apparently has the original engine.

Bobs daughter was supposed to get car, but they had a falling out, and Bobs widow wouldn’t even sell her the car. Have you figured out what happened to the car in its early years? Wrecked? Stripped?

Pictures of driver's door, apron vin, and dash tag.
Ok, that number couldn’t be changed when switched to 70 model and vin

+1. No more comments on what to look for. If he doesn't come back then he was a trolling for drama and if he does come back with information then we can try to help.

Not trolling for drama, limited access to vehicle and information, owner has passed since first post.

Why do you say it’s a “1970” body?
Because has 70 rear body panel and tail lights, 70 fenders, extensions, grill

   Or buy a Marti report on that car.
