drlovegun Posted September 8, 2009 Report Share Posted September 8, 2009 A friend of mine has a GT500 vert and just included this in an email. Any idea if he's getting bad info? If not then he has a pretty special car! I just copied the PS part of his email: PS: I just learned that my Shelby is a Pre-Production car. I have been trying to get some solid answers as to a mysterious timeline for my car for a while now, and finally got it resolved. SVT gave me a Production Certificate stating that my car was built on 09/07/2007, but.............Ford & CarFax also has the car as built officially on 08/23/06. SVT further advised me that my car is considered a "3P" car, which is not LEGAL for sale. After they are done with the Pre-Production phase of the car, Ford then outfits the vehicle with the most advanced engineered equipment that is offered, and then it is cleared for re-sale....thus the later date from SVT. Overall Ford used the Shelby for Pre-Production for 5 Months, and then sent it down the street in Detroit to a company called "Motor City Solutions" for 13-14 months where they further testing, and marketing of some sort. All very cool stuff!!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
