    you are right, a converted fastback is not a shelby...........but taking a shelby and turning it into elenanor, isn't a shelby anymore either.........if that is a true shelby, you should really look at going concourse........i have a friend that has a true gt500 shelby here at the shop and it is probably worth 100k u.s. i wouldn't say that about an elenanor...............

    I wouldn't be suprised that your friend's GT500 worth around 100K USD. And to be very honest with you, I myself don't really know what to put the price on my eleanor, it has too much modification to be an concorse original shelby. it has a full CVS kit which also comes with authentic paper.

    But you will be wrong if you say my eleanor doesn't worth that much. I have been offered $250 AUD (amost $180K USD) by a well known businessman in Australia, and you may prompted to ask "Why didn't you sell it to that idiot", well like i said, its not for sale. but i guess we'll have to see about that in another 10, 15 years time.

    And if park your friend's concorse GT500 with my Eleanor GT500, i also wouldn't be wrong to say that mine will get more (in fact a lot more) attention.

    P.S. I did kept all the original parts came of the car, just in case if the next owner wanted to have them .

    have a nice day

    ah no disrespect intended mate...........nothin wrong with building a car to your taste, nothin at all..........heck, i took a low mileage 92 mustang and turned it into a twinturbo'd turd...........and i fully understand not wanting to sell it, if you like, there is no amount of money that can buy..........all though, all my stuff is for sale if the price is right...........people say" money can't buy you happiness", but i say "give me the money, cause i would sure like to try"

    You might want to re-think the kit deal with your car. I am the dealer for Shelby Continuation project and we offer the GT 500 E. Our cars are the real deal and and come with Shelby ID numbers, are listed in the Shelby Registry and are signed by Mr. Shelby. If interested check out my website at www.trentperformance.com. The builder, Unique Performance, offers parts that might help you if you decide to re-build your car. If I was you, I would re-store to original and buy one of our cars.

    Noooooo!!!!

    If you have an original GT 350, it would be a shame to do anything other than restore it! Cars like that are few and far between and should be kept as close to original condition as possible. I go to Lime Rock Park in CT every year and there a a ton of cool Shelby's there. Please don't change this piece of automotive history.

    yes they have eleanor kits, just go on ebay, or google "Eleanor kits" or "CustomFastback.com" . They really aren't hard to find.
    Mustangs/ TVRs, M3s, 911 Turbos...make me smile from ear to ear...everything else..just makes me smile.
