Better late than never.

Odd that nothing was posted in the NEWS from HQ forum.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Not many clues -Where is this?

Very cool photo.  8)

I'm also thinking not a dealership but maybe a building on the Ford Dearborn campus based on the building style and landscape? 

Looks very similar to the old Ford Development Center. Or it could be anywhere else.
 
Thanks for sharing.

FYI, guys, the majority of the memorabilia offered in the Carroll Shelby 100 Year sale is my stuff. The parts are a friend's. We have some editing to do of the descriptions...some of which we did not write.

That would include the shocks, Mr. Disher  ;)

Anyone is welcome to reach out to me if they have any questions about items offered...happy to answer anything you need. Should be fun to watch the stuff get sold!

Kind regards,
Vern

Was this yours too?

This is the second poster like this I've seen go for very good money.

No sir, that was not my item or an auction that I have anything to do with it.

I do have one of those posters that I would like to sell though and Im happy to sell it at a significant discount  ;)

Kind regards,
Vern

Me too.  ;D

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-announces-delay-for-implementation-of-600-reporting-threshold-for-third-party-payment-platforms-forms-1099-k

WASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service today announced a delay in reporting thresholds for third-party settlement organizations set to take effect for the upcoming tax filing season.

As a result of this delay, third-party settlement organizations will not be required to report tax year 2022 transactions on a Form 1099-K to the IRS or the payee for the lower, $600 threshold amount enacted as part of the American Rescue Plan of 2021.

Anecdotal story:  I sold a set of nice wheels this week, on eBay.  I shipped them via UPS. 

I paid for UPS insurance, which more than covered the replacement cost.

I packed the wheels super carefully, in sturdy boxes that previously held the new wheels I replaced these with.

I always over-tape by at least 50%, until I am confident that anything short of a rabid honey badger can't tear-apart the boxes.

This time, I paid the UPS store myself and was charging the buyer the full shipping cost. (Other times, I have the buyer talk to the UPS store I'm at, and have him pay them with his card.)

These boxes weighed 50 pounds each. Total charge: $416 to ship four wheels 1200 miles, via slowest/cheapest ground method. Buyer balked.  I offered to drop $100 off the shipping price. He agreed. 

I always take photos of all the items in the boxes, before sealing. Then more pix of the sealed box on the UPS scale with the shipping label attached. I close-up photo each label and text all the pix and info to the buyer.  If the buyer can't figure out how to track the shipment from all that, he's pretty much hopeless in dealing with anything. 

Am I making more work for myself than necessary, by doing all this bending-backward? Probably. But, I've never had a problem with an unhappy buyer, or with anything that got damaged (beyond a slightly torn box) along the way.

IMO:  All the other precautions that others have posted here are valid, and should be at least considered before shipping anything to an online buyer.

The biggest thing I'm P.O'd about these days, is eBay charging sales tax and the IRS requirement for anything sold over $600/year triggering a 1099.  The items I'm selling are always legitimately at a loss, but now I have to find the original receipts (impossible in most cases) to be able to prove it?  More BS!

I believe this has been repealed for 2023.  2024, who knows.   I agree, serious government overreach.

$800 plus shipping and insurance.

Last chance before it goes to a non Shelby project.

Gone......

Whenever I ship I take the attitude that if something arrives damaged, we both lose and something desirable is lost forever.

That and communications and honesty is essential.

I'm not a power seller on eBay but have always had 100% feedback and zero issues.

As a buyer, I won't buy from someone that can't communicate and assure me of good packing/shipping.

I've actually sent buyers photos of items being packed step by step for expensive and delicate items.

It's not rocket science but it does take some time and effort to do it right.  I've gone as far as buying foam for packing delicate items.  If it's about a quick buck and throwing something in a box, you are asking for trouble.

Apologies for the ignorance-what year(s) would this be correct for.  Thx.

My understanding is it's correct for:

1969 428CJ Mustang / Cougar
1969 1970  Shelby GT500 428CJ

With automatic transmissions.

If I'm not correct hopefully someone with more knowledge will comment.

I have someone interested in using it on a project car but was hoping it would find a home on a Shelby.
