Well, for all those thinking that MSRP was around $30K because that's what the Vehicle Order Confirmation screen said at the dealership, sounds like there is gonna be a significant "parts" charge on top of the MSRP to cover the conversion. Sounds like $35K for a total MSRP is still about right, then. We hope to know sometime this month for sure.

Yep, it definitely confirms that. Five Oh, can you share your thoughts about the warranty amendment referenced? I assume they are talking about the FRPP pieces that will have a different (3 year, 36 K warranty) and then whatever Shelby adds on will be warranteed by Shelby?

That was my take on the warranty coverage, too. Shelby will cover warranty issues with their own installed parts for 3/36, just like Ford would have. You can still take the car to a Ford service department for repairs. The only difference is which company is paying for the repairs (Ford or Shelby, depending on which part is in question).
