The original owner, James Phelps of Livingston, MT added an over the counter wood steering wheel. He campaigned the car in SCCA ralleys and gymkhanas. The car was later purchased in April 1972 by James Knudson of Boise, ID, who used the car as a daily driver while attending college. Next the car was purchased by Bill Clements of Hardin, MT in June 1975. He used 6S188 as a daily driver until he put it in storage in 1978. Later, the car was purchased by Doug Cresanta of Allendale, NJ in December of 1991. At this point in time, the Shelby had been stored in a sugar beet warehouse for 13 years. A mechanical restoration was done and the Shelby still has most of its original paint. The Cragers have been restored and a Doug Holmberg exhaust system has been installed along with a Detroit locker. A 1966 package tray was installed as well. The car has been driven to most SAAC conventions since its purchase.
