I thought it was your car. If he is the second owner....that leaves a lot of room for interpretation as to what was original. I looked at the plate # and am going to run it through SAAC and see what comes up. Having seen these claims for 40 years, yes when they were still current, more proof than a guy with a little book on the apron is required. I have the same literature that is in the picture and I don't even own a Shelby, although I maintain 4 of different years. As I said the one I currently have in the shop was shown and he too had a little book, it claimed that it was all original. I can tell you without having to check with SAAC that the front end is not stock,therefore not original. I am also not sure about the underhood look, I'll have to get this one down from the shelf and look at it. They had bumpers and openings for them molded into the valance, that one has a rendition of the GT350R from a couple of years earlier. On that basis alone, his claims of it being all original with the exception of some tune up parts,etc., is pretty flimsy. It isn't the first time that a car at a show is misrepresented, it will definetly not be last.

<update> just got an e-mail back from SAAC. They are the official Shelby registry if their name is not known. They state that "rumors" of possibly 6 427 cars being made, however, this is the big one...only 1 is known. With the Marti report, I mentioned earlier,they could determine it. They also know that some had dealer installed 427s,but that is not a factory produced car. They have been doing the registry since the 70s and they have only found 1, that is verifiable, that say volumes. Now if that guy does have one and wants to verify it...it is probably worth upward of a half a million dollars. SAAC is skeptical, so I must be too. Anyone that owns those cars wants it registered with SAAC for authentication and $$$ value. Either he doesn't have it in the SAAC resgistry, a little odd, or it's not what he claimed.
