How many are left?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how many '06 GT-H's are left in service.  Started at 500 and after almost 15 years, just wondering. 

Here's mine #415

 

Thanks.

No way to really know but it's probably a pretty high percentage like 85 to 90%, maybe even higher, they were not as used and abused as the 1960's era cars. Lots of garage queens still out there. Nice ride you have there.

I agree with mhr1961.........there's no real easy (inexpensive) way to get an accurate count. I would likely go with mhr1961's "maybe even higher" thought.  My guesstimate......90-95%

In my research, I have found 3 2006 GT-Hs the be wrecked and 3 2007 GT-Hs. 😩 I am sure there are more, but in my time of scouring the internet, forums, etc, that is the number I have came to. Don’t take this as anything official. Just my opinion.  I maybe be incorrect.  Please feel free to correct me. 😀


2006 GT-H
1.) 1ZVHT82H365226464  06H013

2.) Unknown full VIN  or CSM. Possibly 06H231. I think this one was rebuilt  

3.) 1ZVHT82H265230408   Unknown CSM#

2007 GT-H

1.) 1ZVHT85H175332398  unknown CSM#

2.) Unknown VIN  07GTH280

3.) 1ZVHT85H675326709  07GTH085

Not correcting ya, its great you have an interest in the preservation of Shelbys and are curious about the ones lost. I would say Hertz II's assessment may be more accurate than my assumption. He keeps closer track of GT-H stuff than just about anybody on TS. I think over the years some additional wrecks to what you found have been reported. There were probably a half dozen or more lost to flooding over the years as well, because the New York area got hit hard, so did Houston 2 or 3 years ago, so those could be considered lost as well unless somebody bought them and refurbished them rather than part them out.

Totally agree. Only one of the 07s I found was lost due to flooding. The rest of the ones I had found had either rear end damage or front end damage. 
I am a college student going to school for my bachelors in Business Accounting and Financial analysis. What I like to do for fun and to keep my skills up, I have a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that I use to keep track of the wrecked ones I find.  I usually look on websites like Copart and IAAI to find them, but I also keep an eye out on forums, Ebay, Facebook etc. 

Within the past year of doing this, I have recorded 60 Various Shelby’s that have been wrecked and are on salvage auction websites. The majority of those are Shelby GT’s 

I know without a doubt there is easily twice as many if not more. 

I only record the vehicles that rolled out of Shelby Auto’s/American or their alternate official mod shops.

Thanks for the replies.  I was just curious.  The 85-90% estimate is astonishing. I realize an estimate is exactly what it is, an estimate. But to think that only 50-75 total of 500 are no longer in service is incredible, especially being former rentals.  Thanks again.
