There are still "Shelby Collectors Limited Edition Prints" and "Shelby Owners Editions Limited Edition Prints" available and hand signed by Mr. Carroll Shelby.

 

I ordered this one:

Nice but I wish they would've used a correct production SGT pic w/ Ford Racing badge and black air dam, etc. Maybe I'm nit picky but then again for $700.00.....

Bob, that's the iconic Prototype known as "Whitey", always recognizable by the white air dam. It's the car that was on ALL the hero cards, posters, etc... the one that Carroll posed with... and I occasionally visit her here at SA, that's the car that made SO many people buy their SGTs. So I'm fine with her being on the print.

My car (Number 19, my lucky number) next to Whitey at the last Bash Track Day... it's changed a bit over the years, now wears Razors, a Whipple, PBF badges, etc... but always will be a part of the SGT history.

Jer, I hear ya and it makes sense when you put it that way. I'm just thinking that since the hand-signed $700 print is called an "Owner's Edition" has has the owner's CSM number, it should have a picture of the vehicle that looks just like the owner's. That's just one man's opinion though, we know what those are worth! :lol:

 

 

Now, as for $700, if I had that to spend on my SGT I'd be getting those polished valve covers or the gauge package....priorities...

only went up $200 since the Legend has passed, Im fine with that.

 

I never bought it cause its not a picture of the car I bought, plain and simple.

 

A little extra time invested in putting this together with the ACTUAL picture of our cars...

 

and they would not have been able to make these fast enough, would have been a no brainer.....

 

opportunity squandered.........

My car looks NOTHING like the day I bought it, so... no big deal to me!

Weren't they $499 originally?

 

 

I do not recall what I paid, I know their were 2 options and I went with the more expensive one.

 

I think when I bought they went up to $599, but I got 20% off or something like that. I am very happy with what I got.

I bought the 08 SGT Vert handsigned one and I bought the 13 Grabber Blue Boss 302 hand signed by Parnelli Jones. I like them a lot but the frame is kind of cheap. I was able to get get a 32% percent discount which was available at the same time Carroll passed away.

I just received my owners edition 07 SGT hand signed print with my CSM number and my name engraved on the plaque. This thing is great! The COA is behind the frame with "The Man's" signature on it also! This is going to look great in my office.

These prints are so cool. I've wanted one since I found the card advertising them in my car when new.
