    Description/History:

    1970 Shelby Cobra GT 350
    58,000 original miles
    It is 1 of 54 with the paint codes
    1 of 45 with this paint /trim codes
    1 of 30 withEngine/Transmission Codes

    Sold 07/07/70 at Downey Auto Group in Southern California. Remained in Southern California and never drifted more than 60-70 miles from there until January 2006 when I purchased the car from the third owner and delivered it to Oregon in 2006. The car was in storage for at least seven years in Southern California. I purchased the car from a true Gentleman, who had spent 2 years doing a complete freshening of the car. It is bone stock except for the steering wheel and radial tires, (I do have the original steering wheel, and the original rims with Polyglas tires in storage).

    I just completed taking my car to the Forest Grove Concours D'Elegance. It is considered one of the top 10 Concours shows in the US. My car was judged by 4 SAAC/MCA judges and scored 94.5/100. There were over 20 true Shelby's at the show. Since that show I have corrected 2 points worth of deductions so the car is now around a 96-97 point car.

    It is a blast to drive to the Car Shows and Cruise-In's.

    Best Regards,

    You maybe right about the rare color for 69-70. According to the Marti report it is 1 of 54 with this paint code and 1 of 45 with this paint and trim code, and 1 of 30 with engine/transmission codes.:thumbsup:
