ChicagoChris,

I had saved a bunch of photos from this site years ago that were taken by Shelby Autos in Las Vegas back in 2007.  Your post reminded me of this so I dug through the old photos and found them. It was fun to re-live the history after 10+ years!

I'm sure others on Team Shelby have these too, but here's a before and after conversion photo of the 2007 SGTs.

Any idea of the dates? My 2008 shows a manufacture date of Sept 2007.

And they came from Ford with the stripes?

 

BTW- that looks like a LOT of verts!

Stripes were done at Shelby. Roll back up to the post with the '07 black and whites "before" photo.

Not sure of the dates, but my 08 manufacture date was December of 07. I would guess with delivery, well after Jan of 08 for the pics.

If I recall correctly, the 2009 changes in legislation in regard to crash testing and the cost of such testing lead Carroll to make the decision to reduce manufacturing to smaller numbers and bespoke cars to avoid the requirement to crash test vehicles. There may have been other reasons too but I think the crash test thing may have been the major factor.

Indeed it was NHTSA regs that capped the production to just 249 vehicles.  250+ and many more regs apply.
