the left corner of the box "in the early days" of The Registry was what the owners told SAAC & The Registrar before we started collecting more detailed info from build sheet & Shelby codes!
As we learned more we tried to keep up with more accurate info and made changes!
BY dso #01995 is in the middle of a production run of 15 gt500 convertibles , all with black interior, white top and automatic.
trhe previous owner info from year 1999 was report to have a black top
yes that's what was told to SAAC Registrar/me, "but no proof was supplied"! and yes the warranty records above that statement do "not" show a 428 scj install?

the rocker has "no gt350 or gt500 or gt500kr" letters and the daqsh bezel has a mustang alt gauge next to speedo, so probably not a Shelby!

no one has contacted SAAC or the Registrar (me) since Jan 19, 1995 to "update the info in the file" until this post. I took over the 1968 Shelby Registrty in year 2000. So now since i'm seeing this post on the saacforum i'm adding this information provided! best regards Vincent 'vinman" Liska 1968 Shelby Registrar.
Shelby sales rep in charge of Zone 3 was Hike Pollem.

Also ad to all those causes the color (dark colors) of the car in the hot sun with a 428 running hot in traffic vs a white 351 car!
i agree factory correct is steel wheels and hub cap!

you have to "read" the description up close "Tribute"  but still should not be using any Shelby v.i.n.'s!
