Three Shelbys Up For Auction
« on: February 15, 2023, 03:09:11 PM »
I spotted this today.  Information from the Shelby American Registry is shown with them.  Anyone know details?

Newer member here, but would really appreciate y'alls help if possible.  Mostly a lurker and learner honestly.  Anybody have any suggestions on how to evaluate that Brittany Blue 67 prior to auction?  Have some other conflicts so travel this weekend doesn't work, but even if I were on site I'd want someone with more expertise to help me evaluate it prior to auction.  Appreciate any suggestions.  That car checks most of the boxes for me - may not get it regardless but would hate to miss it because I can't be there in person. 

No issue registering to bid online or via phone, just tough to do so without a real evaluation on the car.  I prefer BaT for that reason honestly - feels like you get a much clearer pic of vehicles there than at any of these auctions.  Spent a week in Scottsdale at Barrett and came home empty handed - values there were kind of nutty.  There were a few vehicles that you could buy new at a dealership down the street (we checked) and sold there for $30k - $40k more.  Plus the premium.

       I don't know if this is the same car but......... about thirteen years ago I met two gentlemen , in Ohio, while hunting for parts for my 68 Shelby.  Don Pollack sold me an automatic shifter handle for my car .  I told him I had met a gent named Tom Thompson, who had a garage filled with Shelbys.  There was one that caught my eye.  It was Brittany Blue. It had low mileage.
       Don told me he sold that Brittany blue car to Tom Thompson.  It had been stolen and the motor taken.  The car had a non original motor, according to Don.  I don't know what other items had been vandalized when the car was stolen but it was sure a pretty car.  I remember it because I wrote notes for future reference , on that day in April, 2010.

      There were a lot of similarities to this car being auctioned.  I don't know that they are one in the same........ maybe its just coincidental

There may be inspections that are done for $2K, but I would not say that's the entry price to have a true professional complete an inspection.  I've had accurate inspections done in the past for much less.

And you don't always get what you pay for (i.e., a higher priced inspector = a more thorough / accurate inspection).

For What it's worth - From Internet search:

what does a branded title mean on a car?
A branded title vehicle is any vehicle that has experienced an insurance incident resulting in a total loss. There are some levels of insurance claims that result in the title of a car being changed to represent the insurance incident.

also:

What is the difference between branded and salvage title?
Alright, so a vehicle bearing a salvage title is wrecked and illegal, or most likely, impossible to drive—while a branded title simply notes a vehicle has been subject to damage. Our specialists carefully purchase and professionally restore branded title vehicles. Jul 6, 2020

For what's it worth.
Salvage titles in OH ( probably most states ) are the results of the insurance industry. Most  insurance companies will total a vehicle when the cost to repair it is at 75-80% of it's value. They then factor in  the possibility of supplements ( additional repairs required in addition to the estimate), car rental time and salvage value. So most of the time they will total( write of as a total loss ) a vehicle at less that the standard 75% value. A "totaled" vehicle doesn't necessarily have anything to do with how badly a vehicle is damaged. Example "A". A 20 year old vehicle W/125K on the odometer is in a minor fender bender. Vehicle needs a headlamp, grille, dent in the fender repaired and refinish the fender and bumper cover. Estimate to repair is $1000. Insurance co. says the value of the vehicle is $1500. While the $1000 estimate is less than 75% ( $1125 )of the vehicle's value more often than not they will total it because they factor in their total costs. Would they need to rent a vehicle for the client while the vehicle is being repaired? A supplement might be needed after repairs begin. Plus thy factor in the salvage value of the vehicle. In this case perhaps the salvage value is $300. The insurance Co. pays out $1500 to settle the claim, get $300 from the salvage yard for the vehicle and they are done! vs $1000 min repair costs and maybe a $150 rental or more with a risk of additional repair costs ect.Insurance will total this vehicle most of the time. Example "B". A 2023 F150XLT 4x4 with 3K miles is broadsided, heavy damage. $60,000+ truck. Estimate to repair is $35,000, well under the $45,000, 75% total threshold. Vehicle is repaired no salvage title. Which one is damaged worse? which one would you want? In OH you go to the salvage auction and buy vehicle "A". You pay $500 put a headlamp in it, pound out the fender a little and it's good to go. But it has that salvage title. No problem here. Just take the vehicle to your local Ohio Highway Patrol station and have it inspected. If they give it a passing inspection now you can take it to a license bureau, get plates and done. A salvage title will hurt the value, but perfectly legal if done by the book.

I have always wondered what happens with a salvage title car when it is brought to a no title state.  Many states don't issue titles to older cars NY being one.  It gets a transferable registration.  Does the brand follow?
