1968 Shelby GT 500 - a real one! 
Door plate info: 63B D 5A 11A 8D26368 U 
This car has lots of documentation including a Marti Report. original build sheet. It's in the shelby registry and has a history documented. I have pictures of Carol Shelby signing the drivers visor!

It has about 48. 00 original miles. Fresh in 2012. Acapulco Blue paint! Original good condition Black interior. Automatic C6 transmission. This is a 428 police interceptor car - the engine block is a C6ME-A dated 6L22. correct for a 67 car. (Many of these cars were raced and have had the engine blocks replaced) It DOES have the correct intake. exhaust manifolds. Carb. valve cover. oil pan. fan. shroud. radiator. differential. and transmission.  
Underside of car is VERY clean and painted the correct red oxide primer color.  It also has excellent reproduction 10 spoke wheels.  

Minor things not original/concourse - New correct Eaton leaf springs - (would need to be painted for concourse).  Paint on intake manifold needs to be blue. Paint on shocks needs to be white. electronic ignition conversion. distributor. starter. control arms. P/S hoses.  
It comes with the ORIGINAL spare tire! Original smog equipment in a box. and I have a rebuilt correct power steering pump ready to install. (steering has slight tightening/difficulty at times - not unsafe just annoying for a perfectionist)
