GT500 billet engine cap set

Recommended Posts

I see that the Shelby store no longer carries the original billet GT500 engine cap sets but I see there are some sets for auction on ebay.

Anyone know what these sets went for originally when sold and stocked by Shelby Store?

I don't mind bidding on a set but I don't want to overpay for an item that cost more now than did originally

They were somewhat reasonable when available but lately have seen them in the high $400 range. Not worth it, IMO.

Right! Didn't they go for about $350/set? Ebay auctions are going for $400 and up like you said. Not a good deal...

 

And I like the new ones but not for $589!!!!!

As with anything in life, it is all about supply and demand. The caps (supply) was readily available when Shelby had them as a current stocking item, now they are obsolete, and a Shelby owner who wants that unique "Shelby" look under their hood is going to have to step up, now that they are no longer available..........

 

I agree with you that "more than original cost" is hard to swallow.............but look at it this way, "if" you step up now, use them and enjoy the look of them every time you open your hood and keep them in pristine condition, when it comes time to sell your car, remove them (back to stock). You will be the one who has enjoyed them and most likely will recoup a good amount (most) of your money to another owner who "just has to have a set of those Rare/Unique caps". They will only get harder to find, especially new, and the value/cost to a future Shelby owner will only go up.

 

$600 for a full set of new is hard to swallow, I recently saw a new set of Super Snake caps listed for $1600..............OUCH!!

 

>>>>>Edit............I just clicked on your eBay link..................My comments above are about the Shelby Performance Parts GT500 Billet Caps that were available from Shelby and are now obsolete. Were the caps in your eBay link original Shelby caps??? or aftermarket??? I don't remember Shelby selling caps like that??? Maybe I missed them?

 

These are the caps I'm talking about, except they were GT500, not GT500KR................

^^^^^A set like this for the Shelby GT500 (not KR) are what I am talking about, and they are getting expensive too..........

Yep Robert. Those are the caps I was talking about.

SPP is also selling those Red with white stripes caps that I linked above for 589.00 / I like those as well but not for that price!

I agree with you on the striped caps. The previous SPP caps were pretty cool, the striped caps are ok, but me personally, I like the old/original SPP caps better.............
