    If the car is as you've described it would probably be best to have your friends sell the car through one of the large auction houses like Barrett-Jackson, Mecum, Russo & Steele, etc. Yes there will be auction fee's associated with the sale but the net result will likely be more than your friends will get for the car selling it on their own.

    Unfortunately the vintage Shelby's attract some "buyers" who will want to but the car just so they can immediately flip it for a profit. On the surface there is nothing wrong with that except some of these "buyers" will say things that are not necessarily true so they can get the car from your friends at a lower price  just so that they can maximize their profit from immediately reselling the car.

    It does not sound like your friends have the experience to fend off these type of "buyers" and may be taken advantage of.



    Very good advice

    Hey BlackSGT,  

    I felt I really had to pipe in on your over zealous price of $30K for the right buyer! In all honesty, a seller in today’s market would have to wait a very, very long time to come close to that kind of Money!!!     Now if it was a Supercharged Factory Shelby GT for $30K that would be a very good buy!

    In reality, in today’s market, I would venture to say,  LOW ($22k), to  HIGH ($25K) !!   If you look back on this forum what some very nice Shelby GTs with super low miles went for in the end, when they finally did sell, you just might be surprised, I know that I was.    

    I’m not trying to but a damper on the price, I’m just trying to be realistic in today’s market!


    P.S. If I was looking in today's market , Hell, I’d buy it, “but”, there are exceptions at times, and I always like to say: as long as (Buyer & Seller) are “HAPPY”, that’s all that really counts in the end.             

    good comments and assessment

    Correct, perform an internet search for thin wall lug sockets.

    Instead of electrical tape I use heat shrink wrap tubing for extra protection. Much cleaner and lasts forever compared to electrical tape.


    great idea my electric tape wears out pretty fast

    Look up thin wall lug nut sockets. Auto zone sells them, or plenty on ebay.some have protective coatings to help protect wheels.

    I too struggled with the decision when buying mine over naturally aspirated and a supercharged conversion. I opted to spend more and get one supercharged. Mine was converted brand new by the original owner with a Kenne Bell unit. I have extensive paper work and belief it was done by his local Ford dealer but I would have to check my papers. It is just my opinion that they are wonderful cars are very well balanced but the extra horse power sure wakes it up and makes it a blast to drive. Go for the extra kick, you wont regret it.  Mike G.

    Can anyone explain the Paxton and certificate issues? New to Shelby’s and thinking about getting a SGT and adding a SC for DD.

    all has to do with California and emissions and money for Paxton to get certified  search and lots of topics on it in this forum

    I have a Paxton and love it (installed locally)
