Jason, while I usually agree with you, I do not agree with your observation on future GT/SC's value compared to non-converted cars done by non-Shelby authorized shops. If I did, I would have done mine here locally myself.


We should all meet up in 40 years and compare notes!

Agree 100%, common sense tells you Authorized ones will be worth more, how could they be worth less or the same? The only one that would say that is someone that does not have an Authorized one.

I think Roger is proof having your work done in Vegas adds value.

we know the vehicles are not an investment, least not in the next 15+ years. But I agree that a GT/SC has the pedigree and is listed in the registry. Only the vehicles converted by Shelby earn the title GT/SC. Apparently less than 3%, possibly less, of the 2007's have been converted at Shelby. Some bought these as an investment, some to drive them, and others to drive/race them. I believe the garage queen with the Shelby GT/Sc designation will be worth the most someday. And it will still be a poor investment. Our cars are not like gold that appreciates at the world economy dips. Quite the opposite. When there is less disposable income the price drops dramatically on collectible cars.

I've had 26+ years experience with "collectible" guitars, and the car market follows it, almost religiously. So here's my opinion: When the economy dips, people get MORE selective. Every current auction has proven it. "Custom" Vettes are selling for peanuts, badass fuelies with tons of money invested, while pedigreed Ferraris and COPO Camaros with provenance are still solid, despite a tough economy. The difference between "gold standard" and "cool car" are stunning when the market tightens up. This is the market... I'm not making the news, just reporting it. Witness Galpin's one-off convertible widebody Mustang price at last weekend's B-J auction for confirmation of this. That was a huge investment that lost a FORTUNE, all receipts considered.

It'll take MANY years for an SGT/SC to be "valuable"... far more than I plan to be on the planet. But there is no question that a "real" one will eventually be worth more.

Just MY 2 cents (which is often worth far less than that, due to missing documentation)...

100% agreed, the GT/SC is an awesome car. It is for driving joy and bragging rights. Roger's car was an anomally, he got over $50K but he was also a rock-star at Shelby American and that car had a lot of history. Now that it is time to sell my car, I am having second thoughts. These cars when documented through the registry are ultra rare. I really think these cars, documented GT/SC's are on there way up (pre Carroll Shelby) and will bring big dollars with full documentation...you can't find them.

I know you are new here, it does not sound like you have a Documented Shelby GT/SC. I still think you got a deal, but to me being in the Registry will be critical to resale. Most folks would not want any mods otherwise, that is why I have gotten every mod I have done at Tasca. Not to mention they do an Outstanding Job

I believe most folks don't even know these cars exist. I mean yes we all know the difference but the man on the street has no clue.

I didn't know they existed until two years ago when I started looking for a GT500 convertible. My budget was limited to $32K and at that time the only options were high lmileage, hailed out cars. Not what I was looking for.
Through my research I came upon a few SGT's. I had never heard of them but as I found out more I became more interested in them primarily because they are built at the Shelby factory. Call me crazy but that plaque on the dash means a lot to me. The fact that the SGT fit my budget and provided great performance and uniqueness made it an easy decision. I'm lucky enough to have owned 08SGT0312 for over a year now and I am now waiting to go pick her up at Shelby when the SC package plus more is completed.
Appreciating in value or not these are fantastic cars that remain hidden in plain sight, sometimes.
