Do you have an extra $29k laying around? Are you looking for a Shelby prototype? Then here's a deal for you..................

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT ! ! !

 

 

 

Dealership now knows they were taken for a ride so I would expect a substantial price drop soon.

 

A phone call to SAI before they took this car in would have saved them a big headache but at least they now know and a valuable lesson was learned.

OUCH....

 

That's not even a good fake. It's like getting a real $100 Rodex watch.

 

I've got a 1966 Chevrolet C10 that I can make a Shelby Certificate of Authenticity for.... LMAO.gif

The Certificate of Authenticity I believe is just for the Signature and the Dealer probably thinks it is for the whole Car................ :hysterical:

Not surprising at all. Shelbys are the most cloned and copied cars in the world, worse than Gucci handbags. When I drive my Porsche or Corvette, no one ever asks, "Is that a real one?". That is the problem with Shelbys, too many fakes out there, some created by talented mod people and even factories……... :)

Who'd want to clone a Vette or Porsche? There are plenty of camaros and volkswagens. Imitation is the best form of flattery.

Fixed it for you! :)

No, wrong, about 85% of the car was built by Ford at the Metuchen, New Jersey Ford factory, as many Mustangs were. The Shelby add-on parts were put on by AO Smith. I know you young people who ignore all old Shelbys don't know history, so it is OK for you to be ignorant, you just don't have the experience……………... :lol:

For the record, my 65 is a clone because I will never be able to own a real 65! Believe me, I have not ever, nor ever will try to pass it off as a real one. I believe imitation is the best form of flattery, when being honest. Since my car is a DD, I have the opportunity to keep Carroll Shelby's spirit alive while educating every day people all things Shelby! SHELBYS ROCK :rockon:

My C7 does sorta look like that now that you mention it.

My friend use to have an 04 black Z06, and his wife use to call it the Batmobile. I remember it had a shorter rear roof line to it, compared to the most Vettes during that time.

I also appreciate clones if they are presented with honesty and integrity. It is amazing how many Mustangs with stripes or CS signatures (some faked with misspellings)are claimed to "real" Shelby vehicles. If it wasn't licensed by the authority of CS Licensing, it is not a Shelby vehicle, period. It doesn't matter who built it. It drives me nuts to see movie car Mustang reproductions of the "Eleanor" Mustang (a beautiful design, by the way) passed off as a "Shelby". Nope, Denice Halicki, has the rights to the name, the movie license, etc. as Unique Performance and CS learned in a losing lawsuit. A CS signature on the dash will never change that issue.

 

I like (honestly described clones) for two reasons: replacement parts availability due to demand and continued interest in the original cars. As far as late model Shelby Mustangs from SA or Ford, with so many available, no need to put stripes and a different hood on a Pony to make a clone because the real thing is easily available at pretty fair prices.

For the money he put into that car he may have been able to purchase a Shelby .... but that car is just painful to look at.

With that same thinking......for the Money some people put into their (late model) Shelby, they could have bought TWO.........................

So Mike, it's a good thing that I have vast knowledge of ALL Shelby Mustangs, past and present, and that we are friends so I informed you of your A.O. Smith built non* "Shelby" Mustang so you can avoid wasting your money on it in the future.

 

*According to your logic.

Indeed, it is obvious you are a true mental giant and the fountainhead of all Shelby knowledge………. :drop:

No, just a Shelby enthusiast for about 35 years- not an investor of Shelbys such as yourself. Although I have knowledge of what a "real" Shelby is from reading books and articles written by Carroll Shelby, Rick Kopec and others. And, I was the one who informed you about A.O. Smith and the late '67's - '70 Shelby Mustangs when you were commenting that the new GT350's and current '07-up GT500's aren't real Shelbys :hysterical:
