Okay. So, last night I headed out to a local weekly car show, and there were about 6 Cobras there, one of which was touting itself as an original (Had a sign w/ Build date and chassis number). The other 5 really said neither that they were, or were not. I saw one that definitely was an FFR kit because, among other things, it had a couple plates with the chassis number (FFRxxxx) riveted on the frame. The others actually had "Manufactured by Shelby Motors" plates riveted in the engine bay. Now, some areas around here are pretty affluent. Someone was actually there with a Lamborghini, so I wouldn't put it past anyone to be driving around in a 200-300k car. But, how can I really identify a kit versus the real deal without asking the owners? Personally, I'd like to believe that all of the ones with the Shelby plates were real, because I can't believe that someone would build a kit and then claim it's an original, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
