1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: GT350 #1341 is on the road again!

Congrads on getting it done. Now enjoy it

Just a little detail that stood out -  the battery inspection decal is incorrect for the car and filled out for San Jose in 67. Easy fix :)

Since you mentioned the "reproduction" word be aware that most if not all of the electronic ones have a visible different from the original. The difference is often the base below where the wire loom plugs in if your looking for something that looks like an original

Rarely have problems with originals or service replacements. Reproduction electric items can often be an issue from reports over the years on the forums. Hopefully there are some good ones out there the issue is that in buying from resellers (the catalog companies) you often don't know who the supplier is of each

A couple of pictures from a car reported to be #190 from 2012. Had the same paint job it appears back then - White with blue stripes

These might give some somethings and details to ponder   :-\

As always do your home work or get help doing it ;)

Another rat rod Mustang. For some just standing out and the need for attention is a driving force


Agreed.  The pure number of similar cars doesn't always impact the value from what I've seen.

Also, in this same auction (Mecum Indy 2023) we saw a blue 66 GT350 with a repro tag (amongst other things) sell for $308K all in. 

Somethings cannot be explained.   :(

Never, over the decades, have I ever attended an auction and not gone away with mixed feelings and results both up and down market.

Yes, great job compiling the results.

Iím incredibly surprised at how soft 65 GT350 prices were. Crazy.

I was surprised as well.

No saying it about this specific group of cars but it can often not be about the market but the cars offered in the auction and the stories or history related. IMHO can't judge a market from a couple of cars at an auction. Just a thought

Remember that 67 and 68s were built at two different Ford assembly plants and each year that cars were converter by two different companies. Because of this, and other things its often not a good idea to lump but together. Not to say that there are not plenty of "restored" cars that owners and builder have not borrow details from one another only to get found out later

Just a suggestions

Are you sure the GT at Aalderink is a fake? Is there any proof? It is recentst for sale.
Looks pretty good with all the documentation and Aalderink is a pretty famous and solid dealer who has a good name. I should be sure when I tell them.

Unfortunately, business and people get deceived all the time. Canít count the number of times the ďbad newsĒ has had to be delivered to unknowing sellers and owners. That is why we try hard to keep others from making the same mistakes or possibly taking the risks. History\, documentation and VINís donít tell the whole story itís the current facts and findings that should provide the true current conditions.

Even with the internet and access to tons more information than was possible in decades past locations, buyers and cars outside of the US and North America have a more difficult challenge. In the last year help buyers in Hungary and Norway. In both cases the cars were not what they were claimed to be. Unfortunately one contact was after the purchase and had been moved from one country to another adding to the challenges. 

Good luck

When it says "new front body clip" does that mean fenders hood  and valances, or does that also mean including aprons and shock towers, firewall forward?

Not sure what the writer was describing but typically a "clip" (especially when the terms replaced "the front or rear clip")  describes the unibody not the bolt on parts.

I did see that. So if ya have a title shouldn't you then be able to register it an drive it ?

Title and registration are two different things in many states. Know a number of friends that had title but the cars were not or could not be registered for one of a number of reasons as well as choice.

Come to think of it I have one car that is not registered and hasn't been for 30 years. Don't recall if that one was non-oped Sure at some point, if I registered it  the state would want a bunch of money if I didn't have a non-op on it.

Can someone explain to me how the 1967 brake vent hose interfaces with the two slots in the quarter panel ? Is it small enough to fit in the "slot" ?

Maybe a picture of the interior of a scoop and where the duct is located will help explain. The end for the duct and the hose pass under the center horizontal brace shown in the picture you posted

Side oiler, you are being kind .
 above  >>
 I personally have never assumed or argued serial numbers, nor will I ever do it.
Coralsnake & Bill,
YEP in my opinion also, nothing that has been presented documents it as a Shelby,
Roof and Qrts and other tid bits equal nothing , trans #'s the same case?

So >. Nothing equals nothing, our Golden rule at SAAC for all our own benefits >> is both numbers and history on 65-67 is required to authenticate a real Shelby
Wasn't there real serious problems quite a few years back on Eleanor's, can't remember why?

Respectfully I think it takes more than just numbers (if your referring to just VINs) and history.  The letter that SAAC sends out to confirm a VIN match is an example of this since it basically states that the match alone does not confirm or validate a car.  Plenty of examples of history and VIN's not equaling a real car IMHO

Others may and likely do have differing opinions :) If we didn't it would not be much of a discussion

With everything working adjusted and working as designed they do what they were designed to do. Indicate a range in relationship to extremes Since there are no numbers nor is the size large enough to do so. Just like any Mustang with that style gauge. 

Guess there is another problem or issue your having

Yes looks really nice. What an improvement
