  1. Shelby fans, just to pump this deal up a bit, this car is in perfect condition and has been babied since new. I could go on and on, but in essence, it is in perfect condition. It has two "pin" head paint chips, one in front bumper and one on back bumper, that have been touched up with original Ford touch up paint. You can't see them unless I point them out. That is it. It's perfect all over. Spit wipe clean under the frame, and in the engine compartment. Every car wash got a complete wipe down of engine compartment. I have a lift at home, so when I changed oil recently, I completely wiped down the underside. This car has been garaged and kept under cover for it's entire life, and in the last 2-3 years, less than a 1000 miles have been put on the car. I guarantee no one would be disappointed in this car at $50,000 let alone $40,000, or the current bid of $36,899. I am selling it only because I have others in the garage, and it just doesn't make sense for me to let it sit around, even if it appreciates in the years to come. I would love for a real Shelby fanatic to own it, but in the end, it goes to the low bidder. Here is link. Call me if any questions. Bid ends Wednesday, 5/7, at 2 pm CST. http://www.ebay.com/itm/111339037478?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  3. Yep, it has a new clutch provided by Ford via TSB!!! Installed in Dec 2008 and works perfect. This car has a 5 yr Ford ESP warranty good thru Feb 2019. Just renewed in Feb of this year.
  4. Guys, This car has a VMP tune, CAI, 2.6" oem looking pulley. It's rated at 600hp and runs great. It's at $36,899 and reserve HAS been met!!! (Sunday 9:30 pm CST) It's your chance for a great car at a great price!!!
  5. Is there an official list for production numbers for the 40th Anniversary Super Snake. Can you in fact still get a 40th Anniversary Super Snake at this date in time? I have 07SS0167, and just wondering how many, and of what, 07 Super Snake's produced. Thanks.
  6. Hey all, I am selling my Grabber Orange Convertible 40th Anniversary on Ebay. Low mileage (14,775) and pristine condition. I know everyone here will tell me I am crazy for selling it at this price, but I have to let it go and the market just doesn't seem to be there despite what we all would like to get. If you think it's a crazy low price, then buy it on ebay. My buy it now price is $42,999. CSM 07XL0229. It was signed by Carroll at Terlingua in Sept 2008, and have picture with Carroll and me sitting in car when he signed.
  7. Thanks so much. I didn't even know the list existed, let alone I was on it. Guess I have been off the forum way too long. Great info and good stuff. Keep it going.
  8. Hey Rick, All in all, it rides pretty good. Since it sits so much, when I first take it out, it rides a bit rough, but when the tires get warm, the flat spots come out, and all is well. With less than 2000 miles, the tires are like new, but I know the rule of thumb is longer than 5 years, they should be replaced. Best, Frank
  9. Hey Don, Thanks for the information. Where do I find the "Who has what" list? Would love to have a copy of that. Thanks for the pics guys. I have both the pics posted to date, with my collection of documentaion, plus notes from interview with Gary, the guy who won the car, plus some criptic notes when I spoke with Gary and Gary, of Shelby America, at Mid American in 2008, who both more or less denied it existed, then stated it was never suppose to leave the shop with the 40th stuff on it, who then said "watch those sill plates real close, there not hard to take off!", and then finally said with a smile "we aren't allowed to talk about it, but consider yourself lucky"! I really thought Steve Davis or Ron Pratt would pick up the car at the BJ auction, but instead of hitting the block at 9 pm Saturday as planned, it hit the block at 11 pm Saturday. Live TV had shut down at 9 or 10 pm, and when it did, 3/4 of the bidding crowd left for the after parties. I was one of the few who hung around, lucky for me! On top of that, I don't think many people knew the significance of the car or that it even existed, and not many do now. For now, it stays safe and sound in my garage, under cover, temperature controlled, waiting for an occasional drive like today!!! Thanks again guys for the info. Greatly appreciated. Frank
  10. It appears to me that they really didn't have any specific build sheet. It looks to me as though they had the car in the shop, and just tried different things on it. For example, the center cluster gauges are carbon fiber, but standard AutoMeter gauges, not Carroll Shelby guages. The boost guage has vacuum and boost on it, where final production only has boost. The inside door handles have the Snake logo on them, and the 40th did not. Of course, it has a white stripe, and the 40th all had silver. Even some of the 40th Anniversay side badging has different font and finish than the final production vehicles. And don't believe they did suspension changes, but need to get under it again to confirm. And you said it, absolutely no mods to the car. It is exactly as it came to me. Haven't changed a thing, including the rubber than came with on it. Put about 1400 miles in 4 years plus, but less than 2000 on it to date. Though you have to drive a car like that once in a while.
  11. Hey all, I was reading through this forum and noticed GT67 acknowledge a 40th Anniversary prototype. The folks at Shelby have been extremely reluctant to talk about it, essentially denying it exists. I know it does, cause it sits in my garage, 07XL000X, as it is clearly stamped into door sill plates. Does anyone on this forum know anything about this car? The quick story I have pieced together is the car was used to prototype things like guages, splitter, insignia, razors, sill plates, and some other appearance things, then somehow ended up being raffled off for his children's charity, though it was never acknowledged to be a prototype. When I did speak to a few Shelby folks, they acted like the car shouldn't have left the shop with the prototype gear on it, but somehow it did. The winner immediately consigned the vehicle to BJ, and that is where I got it. What I am curious about is whether there is some story of how it got to be raffled off. It is hard for me to believe they just decided to raffle of the car used to prototype the 40th Anniversary while leaving all the prototype gear on the car. It is pretty fun comparing the prototype to production. Lots of little differences you wouldn't see unless you had the two side by side. Apprciate any info anyone has. Thanks much.
  12. I did the VMP tune with the C&L CAI, 91 octane tune, oem looking pulley and idler 2 years ago on my 2007. Has run perfect from day 1. Great added horsepower, and I get 23 mpg crusing 80 mph on highway!!! Can't say the same for mpg in town, but hey, who cares!!! Heavy foot!! LOL I think it is a GREAT package.
  13. For all those folks out there that are just waiting for the clutch to go bad shortly after the warranty period, I recently bought the Ford Extended Service Plan Warranty, 36000 miles, or 84 months, for $745. It was the full coverage plan with $50 deductible. Lots of options available, but I figured cheap insurance for a $8000 clutch problem that will happen sooner or later. I found a coupon for $190 off, otherwise it would have been $$935. Good luck. If you buy it now, I think it is cheaper since the car is still under OEM warranty.
  14. It seems most of the CAI's out there are good. I have the C&L CAI, with VMP tune and OEM 2.65" pulley. C&L fits PERFECT, looks great, and the combo of tune, pulley, and CAI performs GREAT. Have driven about 1500 miles since install, and never a problem. FWIW.
  15. Went to SAI last May with 1700 miles, now have 3400 miles, most put on going to Terlingua.
