SGT On A Trailer - Off to the Body Shop

Just in case anyone was wondering if an 07SGT can fit on a flat deck trailer and clear the ramp transition. I had to try this as my car has to go in for body work on the front end and to get new stripes and the hood scoop replaced. Roads are crappy with salt and gravel her in Alberta so my trailer was an option to get it there. I had to use several pieces of 2X8 to ease the transition. The underside of the front bumper barely made it over the ramps and my trailer has a beaver tail to ease this transition. I usually haul my 66 Fairlane GTA on this trailer which has lots of clearance so putting the Shelby on was a little more nerve wracking!

All looks good on the trailer, but how was it to tie it down. Can you post some pic of how you tied it down, good info if I ever have to put mine on the trailer.

 

 

I will post some photos of the tie down. I was just going through a test for getting it on the trailer. I take the car in next week. I usually strap around the axle and cross strap the tie downs.

Where did you get the banner with your CSM # on it? How much was it?

I got it on ebay. I think the place is Ridgetop Designs. They are $30. Just do a search on Shelby GT Banner. I use mine for car shows under the hood.

I trailered both a GT-500 and a KR on a trailer similar to yours without any problems.

 

Can you do me a favor, post pics of that Fairlane. I had a pair of '66 Fairlanes that I sold to make room for some cars.

 

 

Some shots of my 66 GTA. All orginal with the 390 FE big block and C6 sport shift cruise-o-matic

How long did it take to get your scoop, stripes? Also, did they have to replace the hood pin's. Thanks -

Doc

 

Stripes and hood scoop took about 2 months. I replaced the hood pins with the new version that has Shelby written on them. Hood is being repainted at my expense to fix the hood pin corrosion. My car is located in Canada. Ford warranty applies but the Shelby warranty is void.

Love the old FE Fairlanes, yours is a wonderful example, hopefully you won't mind me budding in-

 

Here is a shot of my 67 GTA .. It was a one owner that never left town, I rescued it back in 1981 for the original owner that had been hauling a fishing boat on the top. I sold the Fairlane 12 years later for more then twice the money I had put into, that's tough to do these days.....no regrets just great memories..

Check out the FOMOCO tach, it was installed by the local dealer while it was on the show room back in 1967- BTW that's my daughter who just turned 22 last month.

Thanks for those pics.....brings back memories.

 

Here's a pic to show these cars do fit on a flat deck trailer. I had to remove the carbon fiber chin spoiler however.

post-26584-127223198044_thumb.jpgApril 25th - SGT 4139 is finally back from the Body Shop. The whole process took about 2 months which included new bumper, repaint of hood to fix hood pin corrosion, new GT hood scoop from Shelby, entire Shelby stripe replacement. I am really happy with the stripes and how they turned out. The new hood scoop with the rivets is very nice and fits perfectly to the hood. I have to take it back for one more item which is the black one inch stripe that needs to be added to the middle of the hood scoop.

They are going to have to remove that center rivet in the rear of the scoop in order to install that stripe correctly, because the stripe goes UNDER the rivet...Make sure that they do it correctly!!!

 

 

Thanks for that advice. I noticed that as well when I looked at the old scoop. These repairs seem to take a hugh amount of time, effort and dollars to get the car back to looking perferct.
