The car was already lined up two months ago before she passed. Today was the day to drop it off. Timing sucked but that's life. We tried selling for over a year. Best offer was $100K so I figured it was a good place to start the auction.

Car has a great engine, but will take a price hit on the non-matching drivetrain...

Your mother drove a 427 Side oiler?

Am I the only one asking this question?!??.....lol.....

PS: Sorry for your loss..

:eek:)

Yes she drove it to shows. Up to 74. Passed at 77. Has been in my shop. 465 horse . Same motor as what is in the AC Cobra.

Thanks everyone for comments , it has been a depressive 15 days . Hard to function. One of my closest friends said he checked out on living and being happy for a year after his father passed. I now understand his comment. Until you experience it I did not know how it really feels.

Sorry for your loss. Although not easily done, I am sure your mother would not want you to be depressed.

Good luck with the sale. I hope the auction has the right person so you'll get what you want. It's up to $56K now.

Good luck with the sale, and truly sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She must have been quite a woman, driving around a side oiler 427 Shelby! ( I mean that with all respect and admiration:) ) I know it's tough to lose someone close, keep going and making her proud!
