Where's the rear fender side-markers?

Lost in the "refreshing the original metal"?

A mighty bold claim by Barrett-Jackson, and anytime something claimed remotely similiar, my senses first reaction is to claim BS. I see lots of white cad bolts under the hood which I'd think "maybe not", but '68s are not my forte'.

While the car may well be the remnants of 1477, there is still a significant amount of paint removal to show its the same as the photos he was flashing. With that (and more) will he really be able to estimate how much is remnant. Old race cars are the hardest to prove origins.

Concur, original 1st, massive replacement draws question into how bad the metal was as well

If there is a kit, or resin conversion, inquiring minds would love to know. Mint Models shows  preorder for a Spark 1:43rd for$79USD.

My hunger to have the "last" critical part lead me to pay an exhorbanet amount for a common part, not what I needed. Even from an established POC, be wary what you want, need and if the answers are not clear wave off your purchase.

Looks to be James "Big Jim" McLean on that fender. He was SA General Manager

Was the car in the Midwest featured in a Utube documentary found not it? IIRC, it had a good number of coincidental damages Morrison's car would have sustained, discovered when they were doing a restoration...

I LOVE the Thundechero!

Hoosier, I found your animated enthusiasm of the car entertaining. SO many in the forum have had these cars LITERALLY for generations, and perhaps it is the familiarity with them that blinds us from the wonder of discovery of things outside our wheelhouse but clearly planted in history, if not fame and legend.

Congratulations on your entry into the aura that's Shelby American.


No awards for this "experienced" car; no flash. Fewer and fewer folks bother checking it out, or asking questions.

Saw an original tach for sale by Jim Wicks at the Mid America Meet, Lower Cobra Logo as your car would have had
