Black CS on Ebay straight from "THE" CARROLL SHELBY FACILITY but.............

You would think they ("THE" CARROLL SHELBY FACILITY) would have at the very least gotten the fog lights correct.

internet hype.

Looks like the stripes go too far onto the fender wheel lips, too. At least they got the tail light bezels correct!!!

You have to admit Tim, Black with Gold stripes is one nice combo. If I didn't know better, It looks like your car up there. Mike

I had never seen one with Tim's combination before and it is outstanding!

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

Just a few things that I noticed:

Hood Locks too far up the hood, and twisted too far.

Wrong Fog lights, and no original fog light switch (lighted toggle shown)

The script--on the fenders and decklid (Mustang) looks out of place in all three places.

Calif Special Script, and the side reflectors look a little out of place.

The under-the-hood shot doesn't show whether there are hood lock retainers or not, and whether the hood bumpers are at the front fender bolt locations.

Something strange attached to the left bolt holding on the solenoid (retro fog ground?)

Screws holding on the side scoop screens look way too big (the heads of the screws).

This car makes me nervous. A definate candidate for a Marti Report.

--my immediate two bits:

It does have a nice stance though. I love the paint job.

Hi Bob,

(In general) As I've said before, and at the beginning of the Registry pages, the cars listed, are done so without any guarantee of complete authenticity. Just because it's been listed in the 1989 and 1996 GT/CS Registries, it is not grounds for complete authenticity. So--look for the Marti Report (or orig. paperwork and build sheet, invoice, etc.) when buying a GT/CS.

Before the advent of the "Marti Report", I relied on people's honesty; or at least their knowledge of authenticity.

I don't have the luxury of the Shelby access to records like SAAC, nor do I have access to Ford's records--which is exclusive to Kevin Marti--at great cost.

We couldn't get all the VIN numbers, so, we're kinda on our own. I will include a column of those cars with Marti Reports that authenticate a true GT/CS or HCS in the new Registry.

Paul.

Nice looking car. If authentic, a few small mods could make it even more nice. As for Shelby - he will sign anything for $200, and it all goes to his children's heart foundation. I have a "Shelby" signed GT/CS - I had him sign my visor. I also have a couple of dash plaques he signed for the local Shelby show - I get those free each year (well, for the $20 price of admission to show my car). Casey
