  1. I thought I updated this but it must have been another thread. I think the vinyl stripes are going to be to our cars like shoe laces are to a nice pair of dress shoes. Eventually you'll need to get new ones if you want to keep them in original condition and actually use them. My search led me to Shelby in Vegas, who are the only ones I would trust to restripe a Shelby GT, since I want to have someone experienced with pulling off the hood scoop. You'd think there should be aftermarket places that can do this, but, like trying to find shoe laces that are exactly like the original ones... impossible in the aftermarket. I sold my Shelby GT last Dec. and every time I need to go quickly in my new Hyundai I miss it.
  2. In Dec. I sold my stock 2008 vert with 45,000 miles on eBay in 2 weeks. The first week it only hit $17K, so I lowered the reserve and the 2nd week it sold for $20K. I had to pay the eBay listing fee twice, but since I had the seller wire the money into my account (cost me $15) I didn't have any PayPal fees. My car had stripes that were in poor condition, so would not go over well at an auction, which would probably cost me 10%, so I think I did okay. I gave a detailed description and lots of photos, had all paperwork and tried to be truthful about the car's pros and cons. I priced the car appropriately, figuring the cost of new stripes. The buyer arranged shipping, so the shipper called me and we planned a time for the guy to show up. He took lots of notes, photos and video and took the car on a trailer behind his truck to a bigger lot where it then was shipped on a carrier across the country. The buyer got it in just a few days.
  3. Lot #150.1 was a black 2007 SGT/SC with a Vegas paint scheme. It sold today for $25,000 hammer price. Only had 3150 miles! https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/2007-FORD-MUSTANG-SHELBY-GT-CUSTOM-COUPE-236561 #447.1 is scheduled to go over the block on Wed. It's a museum-quality 2007 SGT in black with only 32.8 miles! https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/2007-FORD-SHELBY-GT--236343 No more SGTs until Sunday when we'll see these two: #1546, another black 2007 manual with only 2100 miles. https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/2007-FORD-SHELBY-GT-236766 And the only 2008 is a Barrett-Jackson Edition convertible, lot #1550. It has 37,977 actual miles and is the only one I see the CSM number on. It is CSM #08SGT2217. https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/2008-FORD-SHELBY-GT-BARRETT-JACKSON-EDITION-CONVERTIBLE-237824 Will try to update this list with prices
  4. I just saw Galpin Ford has 2 2019 black and gold Shelby GT-Hs. One auto, one manual. Engine photos for the manual version. No listed prices, natch. https://www.galpinford.com/inventory/new-vehicles/vehicle/1FA6P8CF4K5178784/2019-Ford-Mustang-North-Hills-Ca
  5. Were the instructions also made in China, and unreadable?
  6. One question- Can all those SUVs and pickups that are so popular do this? And not pick up any dings in the body?
  7. Update - Mine got up to only $17,200 its first week at auction on eBay, well short of the $21,000 reserve. I lowered the reserve to $20,000 and the next week, starting at $1000, I hit reserve in 5 days and sold for $20,100 to a buyer in Virginia. Payment wired to my bank and now waiting for the shipping company. Here's the eBay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-Ford-Mustang-Shelby-GT/133280977890 If you are looking for an SGT visit the Classified ads thread. You'll find my 2008 convertible automatic there. Sold
  8. Before buying dress-up stuff for a car that is about 13 years old, make sure you've got the mechanical parts sorted out. New filters, shocks, sparkplugs, etc. Then maybe fixing the issues, like rattles, drooping door panels, flaws in the stripes, etc. Then grab a Shelby catalog and go nuts!
  9. If you haven't seen it, I have my 2008 SGT convertible up for sale here on the Classifieds thread. https://www.teamshelby.com/topic/98147-2008-sgt636-vista-blue-convertible-original-owner-price-lowered/
  10. It should be in the next photo, along with others
  11. I'm getting mine for just $10! At least that's if I have the winning raffle ticket... From the Barrett-Jackson auction at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. I can't recall if the stripes were vinyl or not. But it finally has DCT, which I'm a big fan of.
  12. I go outside in (first photo of the passenger side pin), but because they move around (will try tightening up the post next week) I've always tucked the cord between the pin and the "ring", as seen in the second photo of the pin on the drivers side. These are both still the original parts that came with my SGT. The little bit of rubber that is still left slides down the cord all the time. I usually try to get the "loop" the cord makes going to the inside, or center, of the hood. Which way do you prefer?
  13. Did anyone get their stripes redone? In Vinyl or paint? What was the final cost?
  14. The original BF Goodrich's are no longer available. I went with the g-Force Comp 2 A/S, but would not get them again, as they look nothing like the originals.
