VIN, that was already found on Walter Hofmans T5. Stay tuned for further information here soon. The car is currently under restoration and the british owner was surfing for advice.

Two more 71/72 Shelby Europe found!
Rare FindEdwin van Beurden contacted me to find out more about his rare Shelby de Europe. Only 14 were built by the former belgian Shelby-dealer in the years of 1971-1972. After the Shelby Mustang production came to a halt in 1970, Claude du Bois found himself in a dilemma, as he had had a very good business with performance cars including the Shelby G.T.350 and G.T.500. When he met Carroll Shelby, they came to an agreement and he was allowed to build so-called Shelby Europe cars. 7 out of these 14 had been located until 2001, amongst them 3 in Sweden, 1 in Finland, 1 in Norway and 1 in New Zealand. Another was known to exist in the Netherlands, but was indeed stolen in 1998 or 1999.
Now Edwin v.B. enters the picture. His Shelby Europe is currently dismantled and sandblasted, so you can't see a picture yet. He will send pictures and his story soon. Edwin adds: "According to Mr. Claude Dubois my car is one of the two equipped with a GT500 engine. The car is registered as a GT350 because it was to expensive to register it as a GT500. I've included a picture of another Shelby Europe GT350 thats riding in the Netherlands. This car is the same as mine exept the engine, wheels and gearbox. Mine is an automatic. This car is not the registered NL car, but another one. I will send the VIN and name of the owner soon."
Well Edwin, that would mean, we have found no. 9. Follow this link to read and see more in my new opened Shelby EUROPE Showroom.
Rare Pegasus Custom Mustang detected
Mystery solved.Ramon sent me this picture, because he wanted to restore this rare pony. As to recent information this 65 Mustang apparently underwent a custom job.

It is a 2-door with gold/black and interior is also a two tone of gold/black in color. If you know of any info as far where I may search for more Info .I would be very thankful to whomever can point me to the right place."
