Yee Haw, Here in ORYGUN we not only have bug defractors, but we also mount up some of the gol-dang brush guards just like the general lee!

Good Luck with the car. Seems like you got a good deal regardless of what you may find condition wise.

Seems like they have done a few things to the car over the years.

Not only did they add the hood scoop and paint the rear panel, looks like they added an aftermarket stereo at some point too. Basing that on what looks like a speaker box mounted in the passenger foot well and the radio knobs.

So they new how to have a good time if nothing else.

Curious to know if the hood scoop is functional or just cosmetic.

Not sure if anyone ever answered you but yes, these came from the factory with matching color rear panels. The argent rear panels were reserved for the "real' Shelbys.

My current CS rear panel was painted argent during the restore by a previous owner. One of the first things I did was paint it to match the color of the car. Just personal preference for me - I actually like the argent look.

Will be interesting to find out what you uncover with the car.

Good luck and keep us up to date on progress.
Welcome to the CS family!

Car should ship in the next week. Will take more pics when I can.

...With a good summary and great feeling about your progress, we eagerly await further updates when you get the car :-) But yes... things can get a little "stupid" in the meantime.... It's all good!

Actually I have heard good things about them. Almost went with them when shipped my '68 f100 but used DAS and was very pleased. Looking at Trusted First Auto right now. Dealing with a guy named Charles. Seems well versed on shipping vintage cars. Will let you know how that goes.

Cool

I'm curious, I am in Carson City on a weekly basis and if the car is still there I could go by and look it over for you. Just let me know if you are interested. I would be happy to help.

Cheers,

Ron
