MUSTANG at Lloyds auctions
« on: June 07, 2019, 12:31:23 PM »
Have a look at the mustang thing going up for auction at Lloyds Gold Coast .  Mustang thing 😂 Nice looking fastback Shelby clone , but check out the vin number , was a 6 cyl T code and correct me if I'm wrong it was a coupe and not a fastback once 😱 . Buyer beware I say 😳 They say it's a 350 engine 5.7 litre too 🤔😂

Nice paint but has some panel alignment issues.
Only $17000 at the moment.
Hope someone doesn’t pay too much.

Engine no ? I thought there was no engine numbers in 66...

Also there is a Shelby tag....SFM 6S503..

For registration purposes in Qld there has to be an engine no., so they've just used part of the VIN, & presumably stamped it on the block somewhere. That's what was done with mine.
Using the VIN digits as the engine no. is surely a fairly safe way of preventing double-ups given that the body no. is unique.
Can't say I approve of a fake Shelby tag though! IMO that's taking the 'tribute' thing a step too far.

 Fake tags, What next, Noticed they can't even put a tag on straight, what does that say about the rest of the workmanship?

 At the end of the day, hope whoever buys it, ( someone always will ) has done their research and knows exactly what they are buying...,

I dunno which way is better. Here's a genuine rolling shell which would cost you about Au$40K landed in Oz, but is only a J code so not a great investment.
On the other hand you can have the fantastic looks of a 68FB and make it handle and perform much better than an original by upgrading the mechanicals.
Still a lot of money for just a shell though.

I guess they spent so much money on their high quality resto that they didn't have enough left to buy a $200.00 steering wheel. :lmao:

I think the Shelby plate used to cover the original chassis stamping on the inner fender.
Couple of screws there to hold it on.
Then i found them for sale on Ebay for about $13 bucks.

When you decode the VIN no  : it is ( was ) a 2 Door Hardtop with 200 1vI6

Unless that VIN was stamped onto a 'genuine' fastback, that car would be a coupe converted into fastback....

 Do they have a 'Write off Registry' in Qld as they have in Victoria?  And l wonder if this is ever applicable to imports.....,

Agreed that is what it decodes to.  Wierd :toetapping:

Anyway - it looks very nice in the crappy low quality pictures that Lloyds - needs a closer inspection.  And you wouldn't be scared to drive the pants of it.
