Built at the Metuchen plant on May 24, 1968, this car has only had three owners. The first owner purchased this Shelby in June of 1968, and sparingly drove it around the streets of Southern California for about 20 years. She was then sent to sit in a collection in Texas for 20 years. Then she was purchased with the intention of bringing her back to full glory. This no-rust car underwent a 3-year, frame-off rotisserie restoration. Almost every part and panel is original. Tons of documentation including, photos of the restoration, Deluxe Marti Report, Marti Personal Statistic Reports and original invoice. Also includes SAAC Registry pages, original Build Sheet, 4 warranty service invoices, shipping ledger and manual.
