Great points being raised! Also, what vins will the cars be using, ie: will they keep the original K code vins from the donor cars, create a new series (OVC 001), or attempt to continue the existing series (SFM5s56?)? Anyone have any insights on that?

Wouldn't anything other than the original VIN (or a state issued VIN) constitute VIN tampering?

I first thought they were buying K codes and 'converting' them to replica 'R' model GT350's. It appears they will now convert a customers K code or provide one. I would guess they learned it wasn't easy to find decent K codes. ;)
They will also finish it with the live axle or the IRS. It will have a starting price of $250,000. Really? Really?

I'll throw in my two cents ;) For a GT350 I would say the minimum length would be 18'. Unless you're planning to carry a lot of parts, equipment, tires I don't see a need for anything longer. A quality aluminum frame trailer is lighter making for an easier tow. You may want to check out Montrose trailers   http://montrosetrailers.com/ I have one with an 'escape' door on both sides. I also had E-Tracks installed and use straps over the tires. I can tie down the car without having to climb under the car and even do it without getting into the trailer.  I'd also suggest the widest interior, about 94"

Photos are of Eltee's CSX 2389, which is still out there.

Still as a coupe or is it now a roadster again?

gt350shelb, Is this Eltee's 289 car your talking about ? In the one pic of the crash you can see the nose of a '66 Oldsmobile Toronado, I think that same car is in the photos of the red 427 in post # 10 on the previous page.

In my files I have the red 427 marked as CSX 3324 ? ? is that correct ? ?

Mike

If these photos should be on another thread, I can delete and move, but thought they are relevant to the discussion here ?

Yep, that's the 289 that Eltee crashed in high school. Owing to his salesmanship, Eltee convinced his father to purchased a 427 for him to attend college. ;)

No real surprise. The estate planned to sell the cars.

I believe the CSX of this car is being kept private for the time being.   8)
