Giving my 427 a facelift


Recommended Posts

Thank you,

I had the Graphics made by Landis Graphics, with a slightly deeper metallic blue, then the Ford blue. Reason being is I wanted to respect the matt black stripes SAI used, but I love the original Ford traditional/ iconic blue on the white. At dusk the stripes almost looks like black rather then blue, but in the sun it's a beautiful deep blue. I saw the blue done this way on the Shelby concept Super Snake car that went up for sale, and thought it was a great idea, and since the car was originally white with blue stripes, it just seemed right.

There was a set for sale on here a while back which I would have loved to purchase(and tried too) and still will if the buyer changes their mind. However that package that was for sale is registered to a black KR, but having spare emblems would be nice in case something happens to the ones on the car. Unfortunately there are no real spares out there, and I can see one getting stolen or easily faded/ scuffed by cleaning the car. The only exception is floor matts, which is wise to purchase extra sets, because once they're gone from the Shelby store they're gone.

Thanks I love the rims as well, they spin up real nice but are a real pain to put tires on, in fact my installer isn't sure how to get them off, might have to disassemble the wheel. They do however update the look, and no-one wants something to happen to their Acola rims.. Those bad boys should either get put away, or sold for big $$ while the market is hot.

Thanks, this is my forever car, and once the wife and I are gone it will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

Your 427 looks Great!!

 

So you talked yourself into the 2 hole rims after all? They look Good.

 

I remember when Shelby sent me an email soliciting me to buy the 427 package for my Super Snake, if I remember correctly, it was the badges, the floor mats and Shelby CC plates for $600 or something like that? Maybe some documentation also?

Thanks,

I'm actually the 3rd owner, but yup the regular package was that (unless you got the Super Duper package and went out to Las Vegas for the race weekend, had the lunch/track time/race next day, then it was more), and they had a hard time selling them from my understanding, but they all did get sold.

 

Your car is stunning, and you are one of the luckiest guys I know. You have the Le-creme of le-creme when it comes to what wheels to put on the car. LOL like the best guy shoe closet ever! Please stay in touch, and I'm hoping to see you on Vaca, and spend the rest of the money I don't have. :drop: Then again we can't take it with us, so might as well enjoy life :shift::yahoo:

Now you do know something?? I have an extensive Sperry and Crocs shoe collection, and quite a few pairs of Teva sandals. <<That is just between you and me!!

 

.............and then yes, the Super Snake wheel collection also..............

 

I remember that track pass kit also, my wife still mentions from time to time that she wishes I would have mentioned it to her, she wanted to go........I had no idea......

 

Looking forward to meeting you. Let me know when you are in the central Fla. area.

Unfortunately, they didn't sell all of the packages. Only 202 Packages were sold http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php/topic/87430-shelby-gt500-427-nascar-edition-build-numbers/ kinda wish they would release the rest of the package, I would definitely consider getting one for my GT500
