Any auto expert who has been to an auto show knows that there are many people out there who buy regular versions of sports cars, such as the Mustang, and then make them up to look like limited edition versions. This practice can muddy the waters for real versions of these performance cars, like the GT350 and GT350R.
To help owners of authentic versions of these special vehicles prove that their cars are real, Ford Performance recently launched a Shelby GT350 / GT350R Certificate of Authenticity Package from 2015 to 2019. Only owners of legitimate GT350 cars can purchase the kit. authenticity. The package includes a Ford Certificate of Authenticity along with a VIN decoder and Production Summary Chart.
The kit also includes a poster, certificate cover, window sticker and disc brake rotor and caliper card holder. Buyers also receive a snake key chain. Ford says that many of these items were included in the Owner’s Supplement that came with the GT350 when it was initially sold. This means that the owners of these special vehicles who were not the original buyers and receive some of the items that were originally shipped with the vehicle.
Shelby cars are likely to be collectible in the future, and having all of these items can help improve the value, improving the legitimacy of the car for any future buyer. Ford notes that documents and images may vary slightly due to changes from year to year in the original GT350 supplement kits. He promises that each order will include “correct period” documentation and images.
Anyone ordering the $ 129.95 certificate of authenticity package can also opt for an optional certificate of authenticity frame. The frame is 11.5 by 14 inches and has a 1.5 inch rug across the perimeter and a glossy black finish for an additional $ 50.
