Re:Restomod GT/CS for You?

I thought about your latest question for quite a bit Paul. Keep in mind I was only 10 when my car was built so I'm looking at this from a "now" perspective so some assumtions may be wrong. While I like the looks of the Cobra valve covers, air cleaners, wheels, etc. I don't think they would ever be considered stock for our cars. Since Ford was building the Shelby in '68, all the parts you mentioned would probably be available, but if a buyer was willing to buy them extra and pay a Ford mechanic to install them, he'd (or she) be in the car as much as a Shelby so why not just buy the Shelby to start with. Changing a lot of engine stuff around would probably kill your warranty, even in '68 besides. Just my opinion.
