May 08, 2024, 11:35:34 AM
In the market for a driver quality, number match convertible.  Small block preferred.  Auto or 4 spd.

2 quick points b/c I did the math with the shop I use.  A shop that, btw, does a bunch of high quality Shelby work: to maintain the car as a roadworthy and correct "survivor/driver", it's 134k plus the bat fee of 5k plus tax (if applicable-something only the buyer and seller will ever know) plus we figured another 15-20k for the work.  Let's call it a conservative 160k w/o tax, registration and insurance.  To restore, add at least another 100k.  Now, maybe the buyer doesn't care about value and equity and that's perfectly fine.  But, for those that do, neither scenario made much sense.  The car was what we call a tweener...

Not likely-respectfully.

Agreed Pete-pic 189 is troubling as well.  And agreed that the stabilizer plate was removed for either of the 2 reasons noted above.  All in all, not too too bad.  We asked for some add'l pics. on BAT and also inquired about why the car had a scatter shield in place of the factory bell housing?  Could it have been raced...

For the record: not a shop that I own and operate but rather one that I use to service my cars and inspect those for sale/at auction.

My shop picked up on the frame, floors and torque.  Looks like someone had fun with a trowel and a 6 rack of Bud.  The plate and exhaust are next on their list.  Stay tuned for answers/insight from the seller-or not.
Couldn't find the FB listing?
Sold or still available?

Parts For Sale / '68 Hood
March 22, 2024, 10:13:26 AM
Not mine/no affiliation.  So, there's an orig. '68 hood w/ louvers for sale on FB in S. Hampton, NY-no latch and needs some repair work but for $500.00 it might work for someone.

Thanks Pete-so, possible that they are off the same car as perhaps 2 of the wheels were not recalled?  Or, did all wheels fall under the recall program regardless of prior bad acts so to speak.
Appeals / '69/'70 Wheels

I'm looking at an original/used set of wheels for a '69/'70 Shelby-no center caps...  Buyer is listing two of them as "the riveted type".  Guessing they are probably not off the same car?  And, what's up with riveted vs. not riveted.
Appeals / Possible Inspection

May need an '86 GT w/ very low miles inspected in what they call Far Northeast Philly near West Torresdale and right off 95.   
I live on the Cape-90 minutes from this guy.  I'll call him but I bet Bret beat me to it... :)
You gotta love those "in-bound" headlights...
