George and listmembers,

A few years ago, I acquired a new, never painted, early 70's Montelatici Special. The frame was found in Firenze by our BVVW Station Chief in Firenze, Italy. The frame again was new, never built and never painted. I had Brian Baylis paint the frame and apply the original decals to the bike. To me, when I received that frame, it is a new 1974 frame, not a restoration.

A few years ago, Carroll Shelby revealed he had enough parts to make 6 AC Cobra roadsters. I believe (but will not swear to it) they were sold as 1964 Shelby Cobras.

PS, George, What is with this "Mister" stuff?.
