    I have for sale a dark grey 2018 Ford Shelby GT350R with 2.5k miles, never seen the track, but it does have most of the interior trim etc. removed. Car runs and drives perfectly, but does have a few cosmetic scratches, but nothing major. Comes with an MPP extra warranty ($4300 option) and Ford Premium Maintenance ($3800 option), so all the mechanical bits are taken care of. Also comes with the optional infotainment system and carbon fiber wheels. Was $96K out the door in Oct 2018, did partial project to remove interior and turn into a track car and can no longer complete it.

    I think you posted the wrong link. That's only one picture.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Hi Byron,

    Sounds great. I could meet you this afternoon, or pretty much anytime on Saturday. I listed my number on the CL post, so just call or shoot me a text to arrange.

    Cheers!

    -Thomas

    Sounds like a great project track car , as the removal of much of the interior and other items devalues the car plenty for the bulk of buyers ( reality is most Shelby's never see a track) , but it might work out just perfect for one of the CCCs on this forum ( Circuit Course Crazies ). Good place to start and thanks to BJ for going to look it over !

    ???? So Byron did you get a chance to see this R? Strange drop from 53K to 47K in just a few days, which seems unusual , so be interested to hear what the condition is?

    Alrighty everyone, I saw the car. @thomasmcook is a very legitimate and nice man. He even has an enclosed trailer and other fun stuff. I’m going to have a talk with the other half this evening. If she’s on board I’m going to buy it. Luckily, we are both in sales so this could be funny. Sorry, I don’t live stream. But it’s gonna be a hilarious irrational game. She just got a 6K Louis V clutch. So I have some ammo going into this battle. @50Deep, if I win. The next set of rims will need a layaway plan. Hahaha

    If she isn’t on board, I will upload the pics and give you guys my input. I will state, “This car is legit and almost brand new.” Only 1977 miles and clean title. Now I’ll off to the Battle Royal.

    @Bill Pemberton are you happy. And I know why the price drop but as of now that’s between me and the owner. If I pass it one he can choose to disclose his information.

    I was pretty sure this was a real R with the tapes over the rear seat belt and seat mount holes, but wondered what the story was. This car has been disturbing my sleep, please buy it soon.

    Byron, sure I am happy, I have just been in this business for 30+ years and was being cautious ( for TMO Members ) , because super fast price drops can often mean scams and they pop up quite often on Forums. I just felt in everyone's interest the car should be checked since you had so kindly offered. Hope it works out for you, as sounds like a great base for a killer track car. Respect that you and the owner are keeping things confidential , ethically that is the only way to go if he confided in you.

    @Bill Pemberton I understand where you’re coming from. Still hashing it out with the other half.

    I can't see why that Vuitton purse didn't cinch the deal. I remember buying my wife her first one and I could have probably slept with the entire squad of Cowboy Cheerleader and she would have been still delighted. I'd be dead of course but it wouldn't have been at the hands of my lovely Wench.

    Yea.......Who knew just how much a purse could cost? Then I learned about Louis Vuitton and coach. Likely their idea of pay back for $500+ dollars in brake pads 3 times a year. Could be?

    OK TMO members, well I can but!!!! I can't buy the car. I have to sell my 16 TP (AKA redpill) I kinda like what I have and don't want to purchase a car I have to put some love into.

    The R is great. I inspected it and the car sounds great, has 1977 miles on it. The cosmetics that are described can be buffed out in a quick minutes. It's only the clear coat (see pics). The car is sitting outside and is dusty but otherwise in great shape. The rims have been curb checked but just minor scuffs. (nothing we wouldn't see on a track car that went off roading). As for the interior, its all gone besides what make the car function. The AC / heater work, all gauges, infotainment are operational, etc. The R Recaro's are in place. The front door panels are still in place. The carpet, rear panels, RSD, etc gone. But cheap in the big picture. The splitter is gone and the two stripes on the front of the upper grill have been peeled off.

    It has its original engine and the oil looked good.

    It needs tires but they are Cups 2s so we all know how that is and the brake pads could be replaced but are fine for street duty.

    This car is a great buy for anyone looking to build a track car and save a ton of cash. @spartan (just saying) or maybe you know of some people in the hunt. If you have any questions I can help out but as far as buying I will defer you to the owner because that is his project.

    Someone needs to save this car. @Bill Pemberton I know you know a guy or ten. This car needs a good home.

    What is the story? Is it a theft recovery or something? Just makes no sense how roughly that car has been treated even for a track project. The tree air freshener is sweet though.
