The car is ready to go although I can put in a fuel cell if you need that for OZ Vintage rules. It has a huge list of new parts I can post here if you like and I can get FIA papers with some changes that I can list. As the car was built in 1965 it fits under the Ford Homologation of that time. The 66 has a lot of improvements over the 65, particularily in the interior. I think $35K is pretty fair as these cars have increased in value considerably in the last couple of years and my builder said it cannot be done for less than $60K now.

The main difficulty is finding a rust free car and this is a black plate California car I brought here to Arizona so it has always been in excellent weather, kind of a combo of Melbourne for the Northern Cal part and Alice Springs now.. :)

Please ask any questions that you might have, I can deliver it to Long Beach for shipping if you want.

Here are the details on the parts and such...

Originally a 289 2v automatic car,- toploader conversion using original mechanical linkage. Built over 13 months by the Shelby authority for Arizona to replicate the original TA cars that won the championship in 66. The builder did the mechanical restoration on the Daytona Coupe that Bernie Karl sold for $7.25 millions at the Mecum last year.
Completely rust free black plate California car, now titled in Arizona (Black Plates go with the car) original sheet metal underhood. Built for road rallies and HSR West racing. Health precludes racing.

Essentially every part in the car has been replaced or re-worked on this car with no expense spared for quality parts. I have receipts for over $20,000 US just for the last bits. Plus the engine, plus the car and body and paint and and....
The car was built as a racer and is very presentable as such but is not a Pebble Beach car, that would require a repaint and some more sanding. Car was rust free and the imperfections have been smoothed with lead - not bondo. Car was prepared by a friend who was a former metal finisher at Porsche.

When I read this over, I realized how much time and money I spent here. Passion can overtake you...
