Nothing for nothing but I always understood a total Vista Blue production of 1899 :

1121 coupes (973 Standards and 148 Automatics) 

778 Convertibles (573 Standards and 195 Automatics)

Another new guy question... Anyway I can find out for sure how my car was configured from Shelby. The Shelby window build sheet shows 355 rear in the car, but looking under the car I found a 410 sticker on the rear. That would also explain the short gearing and off the line launch I'm experiencing. I've driven 355 rear cars before, and they were a little tamer than my GT.

Hi Guys, Vista Blue Shelby GT #08SGT0344 here in the UK. Brought new in California by U.S Serviceman and brought to England as his daily ride. Fantastic guy, kept all the important paperwork and passed it all to me. Car has 13K miles, upgrades include: paint on stripes, 18inch CS69 rims, Ford Racing big brake kit and cooling ducts plus most recent addition, Roush Supercharger...such a fun car

If your car has 4.10 gears it's most likely an owner modification. I've never heard of a car coming from Shelby with them.

Carkik and SHO6GTH, welcome to Team Shelby.

Yep, definitely has 4.10's and also has FRPP cams, seems I got a better deal than I thought. Still trying to find its history.

Hello everyone I am the second owner of 08SGT0415 in Vista Blue. Ben on the forum for a few years but first signed up with an 08 Alloy GT500. Miss that car for sure. But glad to back in a Shelby after going through a 11 GT and a 12 Boss

a couple of years ago I got a reprint of my Shelby window sticker.  I think I got it through the Shelby Parts catalog.  Give them a call.

Very Nice.  Keep that Vista Blue sparkling.  You are going to love that automatic in the traffic on the way to work and back. I would not trade my automatic.
