Default My brother is trying to locate his old Shelby. Need help

Back in the early '80's my brother sold his '69 GT500. At one time it was in the registry, but that was at the MCA show at the Charlotte Motor Speedway many years ago. Does anyone here have access to the registry that they could locate the current owners? He's not looking to bug them about buying it back, but I think he would like to just get some photos of it and their story on everything that has been done since he sold it off. VIN is 9F02R480219. Please PM me if you can help out.

Right now, my registry is at home, and I'm somewhere else. I'll look up the number, and, if it's in there, you can contact the 69 Shelby registrar to have your letter forwarded to the current owner. That is if there is current information on the owner.

Well, here is a little of what the 1997 registry (most current) says:Shipped to Dub Richardson Ford, Oklahoma City OK. 1/30/69 Purchased by Poteau Motors, in Poteau OK, Purchased by original owner William Martinez Jr (69) Purchased by Mark Smith SC (81) Purchased by current owners Bruce and Lisa Albrech (Belmont Hills PA) '82

Got to The Official SAAC Forum - Index and contact the 69' Shelby registrar. There is a new registry on the way, even if this information is old or inaccurate, HE can send in additional information. It's not too late....yet

If the car still exists, He should be able to find it with a small amount of legwork.

I hope that he has a big wallet.

I guess you just skimmed my post, huh? He just not in the market. Just would like to get some photos of it, see what all has been done.

BTW, Thanks Roddster. He did not find a Bruce and Lisa Albrech in that town, but he did locate a Bruce Albrecht that is a plumber in town. I told him to give them a call. He thought he was making a killing selling it for $8600.00 back in '82. He bought it from the original owner for $3165.00 The $65 was for a new battery. Bill insisted he get the car running before Mark picked it up. I told him to hold on to it, and sure enough the prices jumped to $40K and $50K on these cars within a month. Everyone at that time was going crazy for the '65-'68 Shelbys.
I'd hate to see what it would take to buy one these days..

Hey, check out the photo I just found from one of my brothers e-mails. Circa 1981!!

That car today would fetch easily $90,000 to $120,000. Especially in the color of the car. Black Jade was a much more desirable yet harder to find color and still is today. A restored Black Jade '69 GT-500 went across the Barrett-Jackson auction block like two years ago. It fetched $150,000. The GT-500 is also harder to find than the GT-350 and a much more highly optioned car...Usually has a Big 428 V8.

Before you tell your brother, Get him a box of Kleenex first.

If the car was'nt totalled, It should be easy to find..Especially a Black Jade car.
