Will Tasca Cars be worth less than Las Vegas Factory


Recommended Posts

In time will cars done at Tasca or any of the other mod shops hold less value then the ones made at Shelby Facility in Las Vegas.

 

I live in RI 10 min. from Tasca and if I got a SS package I would want it done in Las Vegas for2 reasons.

 

1st. I think the quality at the Las Vegas facility will be better because that is all they do is specialize Shelby cars.

 

2nd. I think the mod shops is like leasing the brand name to another company and "possibly" will not hold as much value in the future...

 

Just want to throw that out there to see what the rest of you folks think? I could be wrong? :dreamy:

Good question, I've been thinking the same thing. Tasca has alot of Ford history behind them and has build some excellent cars. It's kinda like if they chose Unique Performance for the TX mod shop. Do you still go to SAI in Vegas or use UP? Hard choice.

I think TASCA would be the choice as far as any quality goes. They have the history of building some top quality stuuf.

 

They use to take new cars apart and put them back together for a better quality fit then what the factory did!

 

I doubt the value would have any bearing. If it did, it could be more valuable if TASCA did the work because of their well known quality over the years!

Tasca has been specializing in modifying Fords at least as long as Shelby if not longer . ( Don't forget it was Bob Tasca sr that was responsible in hooking up Carroll with FMCO in the first place.

 

There should be no difference whatsoever in quality IMO. Their history speaks for itself.

Months ago, I was skeptical when I heard there would be shops other than SAI doing the changes for the very reasons you mention. Though when I heard Tasca would be the east coast shop, I was excited for the very reasons SD brings up. The Tasca modified Shelby's could actually bring on a greater value over time due to their reputation for detail. To Tasca - it's not just Shelby's name on the car - it's theirs. This is a great opportunity for Tasca to extend their brand well beyond New England. They're not about to abuse that privilege.

All good points!!! I agree with all. Very smart people on this site.... I put my deposit down on Monday after attending Tasca this past weekend and IMO I really believe that there is more value there. Not just because I'm gonna get the work done there but because u r putting TWO great names on the car. In the announcement Shelby also said that they are sending specialists out to Tasca to help with the conversions also. That being said with the fact that I also believe that there will be more attention to detail at Tasca are the reasons why I am getting the SS there!

I would have to say if tasca does it ver Shelby the car would be worth the same.

The big question will the upgrade be the same cost at tasca ver Shelby did it?

Now there is another person that needs to make it worth there while to do it, Iam sure Shelby will not pass on there cut.

Does anybody know if it is the same cost for them to do it?(tasca ver shelby)

It won't matter what shop did the work. It will be the same cost.

I have to disagree. Tasca does do quality work but they have been modifying mustangs and making special Tasca packages since the 60's. Not one is collectible or worth any significant amount over the year mustang that was modified. The KR's and Super Snakes are only getting the premiums their getting for the following letters: S H E L B Y :snake:

 

I think the cars done in Las Vegas will be worth allot more $$$. My opinion =)

The Tasca cars will have Shelby on them just as the stock GT500s from Ford do. And the stock car garners high ADMs solely on the letters and not where it's produced. By the same token, and with the added quality rep of Tasca, it's my guess the Tasca cars could ironically be worth more.

I will agree to disagree with you.

 

The Las Vegas Factory does shelby's 8 hours a day 5 days per week.

Tasca will not have the same expertise as they will not be doing this full time and make the majority of there money doing other things

 

Call me in 20 years and we will see who is right. :snake:

OK!

 

As long we are all debating this topic, then answer this:

 

Which Super Snakes will be FASTEST???

 

The one's built at SAI or the one's built at TASCA??? :hysterical:

 

 

Tasca they already make a Tasca KR that has 1000hp. :headspin:

 

I just got Production Numbers for 2007 GT500's today =)

My car is:

 

#380 of 2694 Vert's

#32 out of 283 Blue Vert's happy :happy feet:

 

8150 Coupes

2694 Verts

 

Total Production: 10844

 

My production numbers are very low! :snake:

 

Look like the verts are going to be woth something after all!

 

Only 2694 07 Verts what kind of premium should we get if KR's are at 100k we should get 30k over sticker Lol. :hysterical2:

I bet the new mod shop director would know the answer to this complex question.

Quality in time will matter. Just look at the stripes on the Shelby GT. There's a cutout for the washer nozzle and SAI is not fitting them right. If they can't get the obvious right, how does that speak to what you don't see? I'm guessing Tasca won't have those sort of problems.

If you say so... :hysterical2:

You have got to be kidding?

 

Just buy the car and drive it, don't worry if it will be worth anything in 50-60 years, we aren't guaranteed to be living next week or next year.

 

Nobody is paying 27k for an SS because we dont hope it will be worth something in years to come.

If that were the case you could make your Shelby allot faster for allot LESS $$$ with after market mods yourself. We are paying up for the S H E L B Y brand. All I am saying is dont try to market something as "exclusive" and in fact they are producing so much product that it really is not going be worth allot in the future.

 

They are now out sourcing the production of Shelby's. Is nothing sakred :superhero:

Comparing the 1960's operation to the one today is apples and oranges. The first Shelbys were built so that Carroll Shelby at the request of Henry Ford II and Lee Iacocca could go racing in SCCA B Production. The first cars were designed and fabricated by people intimately involved in racing; Ken Miles and Phil Remington in particular.

 

Racing doesn't even enter into the picture in the development of the package for this vehicle. In fact, when Ford wanted to go racing with the new S-197 chassis, Dan Davis, head of Ford Racing went to Larry Holt from Multimatic in Ontario Canada of all places for the "Boy Racer" project. I think you're making a mistake trying to understand Shelby Automobiles motivation by looking at it through the prism of 1965. This is a much different business than that one was.

 

Now go drive your Shelby.

Nobody can make an absolute statement about future values, however, Tasca Ford in un-parrelled in customer satisfaction. ShelbyDude might have the exact figure, but I think their customer return rate is 98%. Whatever the number, is the highest of any Ford dealership. They will produce a quality product.
