This old listing continues to be bantered about through back room discussion. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-Ford-Mustang-GT-/151902292244?nma=true&si=RPbLCSvqs8ZMiuMBQtj0tpVU3SI%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Anyone see "creative license" with the "story" and "history" of this car? :roll:

Reserve not met at US $20,350.01

Besides being the "only" one we can find with a factory paxton, I'm not up enough on these cars yet. Is there a link where the banter is so I can read up?

The guy needs to learn how to take photos. What's the point of taking photos of tags and stuff when they're blurry and you can't read them.

Although the car is not currently available on ebay, it has had plenty of discussion "off line". Without seeing the car in person I would venture a confident guess that this car claim is a crafty play on words for the description.
The Paxton unit is clearly a universal over the counter blower that was added at least a year after the car was built. Quite possibly many years later.

That in itself makes the car a Hipo with a bolt on Paxton. Anyone with a few hundred bucks and the supplied directions could have made the required changes and added it. Nothing "one of" there.

Interestingly this quote from the auction does not make sense "This car was found in a local garage and was sitting there off the floor since 1973 with 30 blankets covering it." The Paxton supercharger was rebuilt, according to the receipt in the auction, 10-30-74 which would be well after it was "off the floor" in 1973. Was the car never used after the supercharger was rebuilt?

"A bit more about the engine, the intake casting is dated April 1967 and it was optioned from the original owner to take the $73 upgrade of an Offenhauser intake" This would have made the installation at least one year after the original purchase. On the other side of the coin the seller states "original dealer installed Paxton supercharger " but not that it was installed when the Kar was new. Certainly the dealer could have installed it at a much later date.

The Paxton serial number tells the tale. Manufactured in Feb of '67. The cars build date was April of '66

This car is back with the same story: :roll:
Based on the Paxton serial number which shows a 1967 mfg date and the photos in the ad which clearly shows a Shelby envelope purportedly from this supercharger purchase I would put this part added after 1968 as Shelby did not move his parts business to Torrance Cali until 1968.
I would further question that since it appears that the claim is that this part came from Shelby, why then is it black?
This car may have had a dealer add the Paxton at some time, but in the grand scheme it does not make this car any more than K code with a SC.

The spiel does point the SC being added at the time the car was bought, but it doesn't actually say that (the way I read it anyway). It's the usual smoke and mirrors imho. I agree, it's "just" a K with a SC.

This car has made it back to the broker circuit and is now in Fla with a $52,000 price tag.
Story still the same. Interesting set of stripes on the car. Undercarraige photos added including rust holes!

Thanks for the link.

It looks like this one is trying to compete in the price with the one at St Louis Car Museum which are both high.

This one is loaded with "sins" under the hood and the chassis/undercarriage. No way this one is worth that kind of money on its' best day.

This car continues to toil in the Florida sun. It has been on ebay for months with no takers. They recently dropped the price about 10K based on previous listings.
I saw this car in person not too long ago and the discrepancies are many. My assertation as to the SC remains that it was added at a later date and brings no additional value aside from that of the unit itself to the car.

There are many issue with this car: rust, poor maintenance and what sounds like a mechanical issue in the brief time it ran. Aside from the typical 50+ year old drips that you would expect, there is evidence of rear brake issues as well as a leaky proportioning valve. The car has be painted at least once with incorrect stripes added, letter, badge placement and overspray readily evident in all areas.

Minor repair would include sagging doors, hardware, electrical gremlins and a closer inspection of "the paperwork" that were not available to review at the time. (This would also raise a flag.)

The car still remains ridiculously overpriced for it's questions and condition.
