Bill, PM sent

Appreciate the lead, found information on your one friends car, accidents happen, I'm sure there are dozens without any mention in the registry, after all, they were daily driven in most cases. He sold the car in 96, no new owner information showing in latest registry. The other last name you mentioned does not show up in the registry, although I'll start tracking that lead further since both cars may have been totaled back in the day. If I find anything of substance, I'll update the thread accordingly.

Back in the 80s in Detroit there was a T-boned 69 Gt350 aqua vert. Many parts were sold off the car. I tried buying it to re-do but it never came to be. I don't know what happened to it but am pretty sure it was not going to the junkyard as the current owner bought it off a guy who was parting it out before  it reached the point of it shouldn't be parted out.

Don't forget about the Grabber Blue Shelby that burned recently.  The owner is on here.
The above mentioned car is the Grabber blue vert.

 0F02R482917 fits the bill(no pun intended) as a stolen and never found car.

Got mine on Thursday but didn't look at it until last night. Amazing how much information is in these things! A nice surprise was seeing my Gulfstream Aqua 68 Torino 4 door in 2 pictures from SAAC 48.
You mean this car? I took a few.

My friend Bob who lives in Winsor Canada(Detroit border) has done cars both ways with no problem and he tries to educate scared BaT bidders on Canadian cars. He brought a 69 R code Fairlane back a few months ago and sold a Caprice Wagon to a guy in Texas on BaT. The guy drove the wagon from Windsor to Texas in 2 days and he was over 80 years old. Of course proper paperwork done a head of time. I really don't know Stephen how it can be a royal PITA after having numerous conversations with my Canadian friend on the subject.

A very nice appearance from 10 feet away. Upper quality driver category car.  Compromises in just about every aspect of restoration compared to a concours quality restoration. The car should still bring good money. The person who restored the car did not have a good enough knowledge of 69/70 Shelby's to put this one together. The one picture and the number of incorrect items and procedures in the picture relative to correct ones are representative of the same percentage of non assemblyline things that is found throughout the car . The car looks very striking in appearance "As Is" even with the issues I saw and others discussed already.Of course I have no idea how it runs and drives.
A good shot there, Bob, that does show a lot of things wrong in a small "window".

+1 on the 268H, had it in mine. Good runner, not finicky.

Find the specs on that cam, and also find the specs on a stock CJ cam. Merge the two and find the average, then look for that cam in a roller design, and use QUALITY link-bar lifters.
Thanks for letting me know what Cam is in my engine. Yes, the engine is a great runner. I enjoy the fruits of your labor, Dan.  8)

Just a guess but I think we are going to get up around $275-285k, unless buyers are afraid of the Canada thing

Does anyone know who did the restoration? I am wondering why it wasn't shown at SAAC ?  Its well done based on the photos, with a lot of good detail.
Look at the reflections in the paint. Appears the paint job is awesome on the car. Even the front valance has a great reflection of the photographer.  Car looks great but the front suspension appears to be aftermarket or in the case of the partially painted upper arms has bolted on ball joints. My PET PEEVE? The CHEAP aftermarket Scott Drake incorrect shift knob. It isn't that hard to find a decent 68 flat 3 shift knob for 68 Shelbys. Minor though  in the scope of the overall car. Pete, does div II allow for that Drake knob on 68s?

Is that the VIN Man's maroon GT350 vert in the middle?

Thanks. I've bought kits from local auto parts stores but not in a while. Back then they were not ethanol kits. I'll look up the NPD kits.
