I've always coveted a 68 Shelby convertible-of course, a real full price one is out of my range and since I'd want to drive it some, be out of the practicality range.

I came across a "clone" on that well known auction site and it's only about 20 mins away. Looks pretty danged nice on the site. Listed at $44k. I talked to the guy says he is selling a whole collection of cars for a friend of his that is in the restaurant biz and they really don't know that much about them and a bunch of other weirdness. Want's to come look and see all the stuff.

Going over tomorrow but I told him that even if the clone is perfect, low $20's tops. No way he replied.

Any opinons as to what a "very nice" 5 footer Shelby clone would be worth? High, low, med.

Thanks.

Everything is going to vary by local conditions, of course, but I'd say that you're closer than he is. I'd ballpark mid-twenties.

Think I saw that "auction" too. Figured the seller had been smoking something! I've watched the sales on the 68 clones for about 2 yrs now ..... never seen anything go much over the mid twenty's yet.... And I've seen some very nice examples. On the flip side , I have seen a couple of the "real" things bargin priced in the upper forty's....

Not only is he cloning a 68 Shelby 'vert, but he's also attempting to clone the 68 Shelby 'vert price!

Too much $$ at $44k.

Everybody has their ideas about what something is worth and what is desirable; if you want a Shelby clone, then work on deciding what they are worth to you considering condition. Doing a clone in fully restored condition from scratch may very well reach unrestored real thing prices or more. Remember the addage, buy the best condition possible. In todays market a primo clone may be worth more than $26,000; maybe $36,000.

I hope this somehow helps.

Your post raises a couple of nice points but I am not sure what that has to do with the price of a Shelby Clone. And I do think they are stretching things a bit. But I am starting to see them from a slightly different angle.
