  1. Hello all. I am contemplating selling the Shelby, and am putting it out to the community first. As you know, 1 of 4 automatics. 1 of 2 automatics with navigation. This car was not supposed to even be built. It has been appraised at $65,000. The car is all stock, except for the chrome rims, but I still have the original rims as well. It is stored in a dust-free plastic car storage bag with moisture control, and has just over 500 miles. If anyone is interested, you can call me at 608-235-0586. My health has been compromised, so if I don't get back to you right away, please understand. My email is scottmadwi@yahoo.com.
  2. This is the production information of the GT-C’s from the Ford window stickers. All 215 have dark charcoal leather. All 212 with the interior upgrade package have the satin aluminum panel. One was produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $30,755. 43 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, and HID headlamps with an MSRP of $31,215. 2 were produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, Shaker 1000 audio system, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $32,050. 63 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and Shaker 1000 audio system with an MSRP of $32,510. 2 were produced with an automatic transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and Shaker 1000 audio system with an MSRP of $33,055. 102 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and DVD navigation system with an MSRP of $33,210. 2 were produced with an automatic transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and DVD navigation system with an MSRP of $33,755.
  3. Thanks! Your car, 08SGT0096, was the 41st produced by VIN. Interestingly, it was originally sold to the same dealer mine was, Chino Hills Ford. It is one of 102 produced with a manual transmission and a navigation system. I also have PDF files of all the GT-C window stickers from Ford. Your car had an MSRP of $33,210 from Ford.
  4. It’s nice to see people still active with this forum! Here are a few interesting facts about the GT-C’s. The earliest production car to leave Dearborn and be shipped to Las Vegas for its GT-C package was 08SGT0180, VIN 1ZVHT82H385100343, with an MSRP of $33,210. The latest production car to leave Dearborn and be shipped to Las Vegas for its GT-C package was 08SGT0086, VIN 1ZVHT82H985103859, with an MSRP of $33,210. The order of GT-C transformation does not match the order of factory production. My car, 08SGT0172, was the 145th in order of factory production. 08SGT0128 was the 97th in order of factory production. I also found out that one of the four automatic GT-C’s was sold by its original owner, exported from LA, and imported to Thailand. It was one of the two cars with the Shaker 1000 Audio System. That car is 08SGT0181. To the best of my knowledge, the other automatic/Shaker 1000 car (08SGT0043) is still with its original owner in Nipomo, CA (last known to have 2,798 miles), and the other automatic/navigation car (08SGT0139) is with its second owner in Indio, CA (last known to have 28,807 miles). My automatic/navigation car (08SGT0172) is resting for the winter in Wisconsin, the coldest winter we’ve had, by the way, since 1976!
  5. Don't feel too bad. That car was in an accident in January of 2009. That, and the miles, are affecting it's value.
  6. I purchased them through a Ford dealer. They are the same as the stock Shelby rim, except in show chrome. They were available as an option in 2008 on the Mustang GT for $1,185, but cost much more through Ford parts!
  7. #46 was originally sold to Larry Green Ford in southern CA, but ended up at Go Ford West in Wheat Ridge, CO, and was registered by its first owner in Golden, CO. It is the only one I know of in CO, but there was another one registered in WY when new...#176 in Casper, WY on 6/5/08. That is pretty amazing that you happened to be at the same show! At least your cars were not identical. You have the Shaker 1000, and that car has the Navigation instead. The 5-speed GT-C's with the Shaker 1000 are more rare than those with the Navigation!
  8. I just changed the signature photo. Factory chrome wheels (64A) were installed on the GT-C on June 14th. Does anyone have thoughts on painting the calipers grabber orange? Has anyone done that and like it?
  9. The Interior Upgrade Package includes a bright polished 6 gauge instrument cluster with the My Color feature (adds 2 gauges), a bright shift knob, satin register vents, satin aluminum spokes on the steering wheel, satin aluminum door latches, a door scuff plate, a message center (computer with average speed, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption and range for remaining fuel), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Dark Charcoal Aberdeen pattern front door panel inserts, and either the Satin Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué or the Woven Charcoal Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué with a Ribbed Pattern. All of the GT-C’s with the Interior Upgrade Package have the Satin Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué. Actually, 3 GT-C’s were produced without the Interior Upgrade Package.
  10. I think I have posted this before, but will do so again, since there has been discussion about production information on the GT-C. There were only 215 produced in all. 08SGT0001 and 08SGT0002 were not used on a car. 08SGT0218 begins the run of Vista Blue cars. One was produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $30,755. 43 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, and HID headlamps with an MSRP of $31,215. 2 were produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, Shaker 1000 audio system, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $32,050. 63 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and Shaker 1000 audio system with an MSRP of $32,510. 2 were produced with an automatic transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and Shaker 1000 audio system with an MSRP of $33,055. 102 were produced with a manual transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and DVD navigation system with an MSRP of $33,210. 2 were produced with an automatic transmission, interior upgrade package, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and DVD navigation system with an MSRP of $33,755. (I own one of these, 08SGT0172) All 215 have dark charcoal leather. All 212 with the interior upgrade package have the satin aluminum panel.
  11. 4 automatics were produced, 2 with navigation, and 2 with shaker 1000... my car is one of the 2 with navigation...the other of that 2 was leased, modified, and sold at auction with around 22,000 miles... my car has 487 miles, and is one of the rarest Shelbys ever produced... I've received many emails inquiring about purchasing this car. The car will not be sold for less than $100,000. I don't need the money, and I love the car!
  12. I do have PDF files of all GO window stickers if anyone ever needs one!
  13. #30 is for sale in Newark, CA. It is a very rare GT-C!! The car is for sale on autotrader making no mention that it is a Shelby. This car is one of only 2 produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, Shaker 1000 audio system, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $32,050. I'm sure they have no idea how rare the car is. The car has 25,879 miles, and they are asking $24,995. Someone will be getting one heck of a deal!! http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?ct=u&car_id=310174317&dealer_id=1173280&car_year=2008&systime=&doors=&model=MUST&search_lang=en&start_year=2008&keywordsfyc=&keywordsrep=&highlightFirstMakeModel=&search_type=both&distance=0&min_price=&rdm=1321108371694&drive=&marketZipError=false&advanced=y&fuel=&keywords_display=&lastBeginningStartYear=1981&end_year=2008&showZipError=n&make2=&certified=&engine=8+Cylinder&dma=MADISON&page_location=findacar%3A%3Aispsearchform&body_code=0&isFlashPlugin=true&transmission=&default_sort=priceDESC&max_mileage=&color=ORANGE&address=53719&sort_type=priceDESC&max_price=&color2=&make=FORD&seller_type=b&num_records=25&cardist=1743&standard=false&rdpage=thumb&captcha=success

  15. Your sibling was first registered on 6/23/09 in Troy, AL with 71 miles. Here are the numbers by location: CA 144 TX 12 AZ 8 WA 6 MO 4 NY 4 GA 3 Germany 3 NV 3 VA 3 AL 2 FL 2 LA 2 MD 2 MI 2 NC 2 OK 2 CO 1 CT 1 Denmark 1 ID 1 IL 1 NE 1 OR 1 TN 1 UT 1 WI 1 WY 1
  16. Over the past 3 weeks, I have been running AutoCheck reports on the 215 GT-C’s. Only 10 cars report no registered owners. Of those 10, 3 cars were exported to Germany (08SGT0050, 08SGT0099, and 08SGT0110). Galpin Ford is believed to have 08SGT0003 in their museum. According to Willy at Perry Ford, both 08SGT0010 and 08SGT0077 were sold on March 10, 2008 to someone local in California, but neither car have ever been registered according to AutoCheck. A Ford dealer in Kirkland, WA was last known to have 08SGT0087 in stock with 2,029 miles, but that car has never been registered. Last I knew, Perry Ford still owned 08SGT0100 and 08SGT0119, but I do not know if they are available for sale at this time. Last I knew, Hollywood Ford owned 08SGT0138, but I do not know if that car is available for sale. 175 of the GT-C’s have had one known owner. 29 of the GT-C’s have had two known owners. Of those 29 cars, I believe 7 were purchased by FoMoCo and sent to a dealer auction. Those 7 cars were registered in MI with almost no miles and ended up at a dealer auction after very little time. Another 7 of those 29 cars were originally leased when new. One GT-C has had three known owners and was involved in a reported theft. Eight of the GT-C’s have been in a reported accident. The highest odometer reading I have seen on a GT-C is 37,997 miles. I’m sure some of you know of Anders Nannerup who had 08SGT0064 exported to Denmark. He told me in an email that he has since sold that car to someone else in Denmark, but I have not had luck establishing contact with the new owner. Here is what I have on the last known location or place of registration for the 215 GT-C’s. 08SGT0003 CA 08SGT0004 CA 08SGT0005 CA 08SGT0006 CA 08SGT0007 VA 08SGT0008 IL 08SGT0009 CA 08SGT0010 CA 08SGT0011 CA 08SGT0012 CA 08SGT0013 CA 08SGT0014 CA 08SGT0015 NY 08SGT0016 CA 08SGT0017 TX 08SGT0018 NV 08SGT0019 CA 08SGT0020 MD 08SGT0021 CA 08SGT0022 CA 08SGT0023 NC 08SGT0024 CA 08SGT0025 CA 08SGT0026 CA 08SGT0027 AZ 08SGT0028 CA 08SGT0029 CA 08SGT0030 CA 08SGT0031 LA 08SGT0032 TX 08SGT0033 CA 08SGT0034 CA 08SGT0035 CA 08SGT0036 CA 08SGT0037 CA 08SGT0038 AZ 08SGT0039 CA 08SGT0040 AZ 08SGT0041 CA 08SGT0042 CA 08SGT0043 CA 08SGT0044 TX 08SGT0045 GA 08SGT0046 CO 08SGT0047 CA 08SGT0048 CA 08SGT0049 CA 08SGT0050 Germany 08SGT0051 CA 08SGT0052 CA 08SGT0053 CA 08SGT0054 WA 08SGT0055 NY 08SGT0056 TX 08SGT0057 CA 08SGT0058 CA 08SGT0059 CA 08SGT0060 CA 08SGT0061 CA 08SGT0062 CA 08SGT0063 CA 08SGT0064 Denmark 08SGT0065 CA 08SGT0066 CA 08SGT0067 CA 08SGT0068 CA 08SGT0069 AZ 08SGT0070 CA 08SGT0071 CA 08SGT0072 NC 08SGT0073 CA 08SGT0074 WA 08SGT0075 MO 08SGT0076 AL 08SGT0077 CA 08SGT0078 CA 08SGT0079 GA 08SGT0080 CA 08SGT0081 OK 08SGT0082 CA 08SGT0083 CA 08SGT0084 AL 08SGT0085 NV 08SGT0086 CA 08SGT0087 WA 08SGT0088 MI 08SGT0089 TX 08SGT0090 CA 08SGT0091 CA 08SGT0092 UT 08SGT0093 CA 08SGT0094 WA 08SGT0095 VA 08SGT0096 TX 08SGT0097 CA 08SGT0098 WA 08SGT0099 Germany 08SGT0100 CA 08SGT0101 MO 08SGT0102 CT 08SGT0103 CA 08SGT0104 CA 08SGT0105 CA 08SGT0106 CA 08SGT0107 CA 08SGT0108 CA 08SGT0109 FL 08SGT0110 Germany 08SGT0111 CA 08SGT0112 GA 08SGT0113 CA 08SGT0114 CA 08SGT0115 TX 08SGT0116 AZ 08SGT0117 CA 08SGT0118 VA 08SGT0119 CA 08SGT0120 CA 08SGT0121 OK 08SGT0122 CA 08SGT0123 MI 08SGT0124 CA 08SGT0125 CA 08SGT0126 CA 08SGT0127 CA 08SGT0128 TX 08SGT0129 WA 08SGT0130 AZ 08SGT0131 AZ 08SGT0132 CA 08SGT0133 TX 08SGT0134 NV 08SGT0135 CA 08SGT0136 CA 08SGT0137 CA 08SGT0138 CA 08SGT0139 CA 08SGT0140 CA 08SGT0141 CA 08SGT0142 CA 08SGT0143 CA 08SGT0144 CA 08SGT0145 CA 08SGT0146 ID 08SGT0147 CA 08SGT0148 CA 08SGT0149 TX 08SGT0150 CA 08SGT0151 CA 08SGT0152 CA 08SGT0153 CA 08SGT0154 NY 08SGT0155 CA 08SGT0156 CA 08SGT0157 CA 08SGT0158 AZ 08SGT0159 CA 08SGT0160 CA 08SGT0161 CA 08SGT0162 CA 08SGT0163 CA 08SGT0164 CA 08SGT0165 CA 08SGT0166 TN 08SGT0167 CA 08SGT0168 CA 08SGT0169 NY 08SGT0170 CA 08SGT0171 CA 08SGT0172 WI 08SGT0173 CA 08SGT0174 CA 08SGT0175 TX 08SGT0176 WY 08SGT0177 CA 08SGT0178 CA 08SGT0179 CA 08SGT0180 NE 08SGT0181 CA 08SGT0182 CA 08SGT0183 CA 08SGT0184 CA 08SGT0185 MO 08SGT0186 CA 08SGT0187 CA 08SGT0188 CA 08SGT0189 CA 08SGT0190 CA 08SGT0191 CA 08SGT0192 CA 08SGT0193 CA 08SGT0194 CA 08SGT0195 CA 08SGT0196 OR 08SGT0197 MD 08SGT0198 FL 08SGT0199 CA 08SGT0200 CA 08SGT0201 MO 08SGT0202 CA 08SGT0203 CA 08SGT0204 CA 08SGT0205 CA 08SGT0206 CA 08SGT0207 CA 08SGT0208 CA 08SGT0209 LA 08SGT0210 CA 08SGT0211 CA 08SGT0212 CA 08SGT0213 CA 08SGT0214 CA 08SGT0215 CA 08SGT0216 CA 08SGT0217 TX
  17. Only 3 GT-C's were produced with no interior upgrade package. The other 2 GT-C's with no interior upgrade package had the Shaker 1000 option. Those 2 GT-C's were #0009 and #0030. Each of those 2 had a Ford MSRP of $32,050. All other GT-C's produced had the interior upgrade package with a satin aluminum dash panel.
  18. 08SGT0117 is a very rare GT-C. It is the ONLY GT-C produced with a manual transmission, active anti-theft system, HID headlamps, and NO interior upgrade package with an MSRP of $30,755. That was the lowest MSRP for a GT-C, and the only "one of one" produced! I wonder if the owner knows how rare his car actually is.
  19. I have PDF files of the window stickers for all 215 GT-C's. I do a carfax of each GT-C once/year to determine each car's current location and last known miles.
  20. Claremont Ford in San Diego shows 4 GT-C's in stock, all with navigation (#'s 14, 34, 95, & 98). They should be willing to deal if there really are 4 left in stock. Perry Ford in Santa Barbara shows 2 in stock, both with navigation (#'s 100 & 119). Fritts Ford in Riverside shows 2 in stock, both with navigation (#'s 16 & 80). Santa Monica Ford shows 1 in stock with navigation (# 88). Mullahey Ford in Arroyo Grande shows 1 in stock with navigation (# 103). I'm not sure how updated these inventories are, but these are some to check out.
  21. Saturday, July 25 is the show in Fox Lake which is one of the largest in the state and well established. I wouldn't compete with that show. Sunday, July 26 would be a better choice.
  22. #134 may be the car in Galpin's museum.
