  Restoration

Before removing the first bolt, we began the extensive research phase of this project. A "dream team" of experts and enthusiasts were assembled and the physical restoration commenced in 2010.

With even more information discovered over the next three years, the never-ending pursuit of perfection, Jason Billups was to commissioned to re-restore 0139 to Concours standards. 0139 was completed by Billups Classic Cars in October 2014.

Researching this very special car's history will likely never end -- In fact,  newly discovered vintage photos were added to the gallery as recently as October 2014, and related paperwork as recently as March 2015.

If you have knowledge, paperwork and/or photographs of this convertible or other Shelby American company cars, engineering vehicles and/or prototypes, we'd love to hear from you.
