Saw this ad the other day, just wondering if anyone knows anything about the car. It's not something you see every day so kinda interesting I think.

I don't know that particular car. I do watch that site tho. I've seen some really nice cars on there.
It's actually not a horrible price if it's authentic and in Canuck bucks !

I've seen it run at vintage events in Fla. I never checked it out closely because frankly, there are so many fake ones that are well done I can't see buying a real one. But $115K seems pretty reasonable for the real deal.

One thing to look for is the 271HP 289 engine, I think the Shelbys were rated at 310 or something. I doubt it has the original one, but as I recall the 271hp had thicker main bearings, they may also have 4 bolt mains, I can't remember, it's only been about 45 years since I had my hands on one.
It should also have a 9 inch with either over, or under ride bars depending on the year. It will also have a cable rear suspension limiters. The front upper control arms will have 2 sets of holes to change the roll center and a brace welded under the upper control arm in the spring pocket. Those are all indicators of a real gt350, not one that somebody swapped numbers on.
