    must confess to not having heard of Shelby titled GT350, in 07- i mean yes GT or GT500 or GT-H... but not GT350,

    Googling suggests there were over 6000 GT350 2007 models built.

      I have very little knowledge of a these cars but as a previous 2007 GT500 owner I believe this is correct

      There was no such car as a 2007 Shelby GT350, There was however a 2007 Shelby GT, I know because I almost bought one thinking it was a GT500. AFAIK it was sort of a badge engineered car meaning it was more or less a Mustang GT with Shelby Badges. This one would have had the supercharger added. Personally I would be looking for a GT500

      Again, most folks have more modern mustang knowledge than me and I am happy to be proven wrong

        In 2007 there was a Shelby GT which was a standard 4.6 GT with a few Shelby bits and pieces added, it was only available in black or white. This appears to be one of those with a supercharger added. On the dash the Shelby sticker shows it as a "Shelby GT" not a GT350.

          yes, thanks Geoff i didn't think there was a 2007 "Shelby GT350". Stuart you are right there were over 6000 Shelby GT,s (but NOT titled GT350 which was my original question). So thanks to all for your help. I guess what we have is an 07 Shelby GT which were standard GTs "finished" ( a la 65/66 style) at Shelby in Las Vegas with Ford performance parts, and then after a s/c has been fitted with GT500 bumper n bonnet. guess its worth checkin out.

            With a new front end and possibly more on it, I'd suggest getting the VIN and getting a Carfax report if intending to proceed:

            Just "Googling" the VIN can bring results.

              I'm sure this subject, probably prompted by this exact car in the O.P has cropped up before.

              Barrett Jackson listed and sold a "GT350" on the link below.
              However the side stickers show it as a Shelby GT and the description mentions Shelby GT package.
              The car in the O.P has GT500 side stickers, if they were removed and any future reference to GT350 was dropped then this subject wouldn't come up again re this car.

              It's a Shelby GT with Supercharger and GT 500 hood, presumably because of the supercharger.
              It doesn't seem a bad collection of parts for the money.
              Check with the Shelby register to confirm the number.

                There's no need to change the bonnet for a Supercharger on a 4.6 GT. This exact car rings a bell with me from something a few years ago locally when it was imported but can't remember what exactly at the moment. Carfax is the way forward.

                  Is it UK registered?
                  doesn't appear to have side repeaters or a rear fog light switch. Has it just come into the country?

                      Same seller has a GT500 for sale too, that does appear to have side repeaters:

                          I'd go for it, seems a good price and it's a future collectors car. Just don't use it as a daily.

                            The guy seems to sell cars and car parts from a wide variety of vehicles so I'd assume they are a trader listing this as a I've only had it a short while but I'm buying a house private sale. Which means of course no consumer protection on the purchase.

                            It is re-advertised from a September advert on eBay at the same price so its not selling quickly at that price. That means you can expect to get a good amount knocked off or there is something not quite right with the car that has put others off buying it already.

                              It appears to be straight off the boat, there's no side repeaters, rear fog light, UK number plates etc. so MOT and registration procedure to go through I guess.
