The most common questions we receive about Unique Performance vehicles are regarding the Shelby licensing and the Shelby Registry. In my dealings with the Shelby organization, I have been assured that the Unique Performance vehicles are recognized by the Shelby organization and with proper documentation will be entered into the Shelby American Registrty.
As a clarification, there is now a Shelby American Registry that is being managed internally by Shelby American that includes the modern Shelby vehicles, as well as the continuation Shelby vehicles. This is different from the Vintage Shelby registry that is managed by SAAC. Because these vehicles are still being produced, there are no plans for a printed copy of the registry, but at some point there will be a way to access the registry online.
If you own a Unique Performance vehicle, or are considering purchasing one, it is pertinent that you preserve the original build documentation. Be sure to have copies of the original build sheet and purchase contract proving that it is an authentic, licensed Shelby continuation vehicle. As part of my work, I have been compiling copies of this paperwork for all vehicles I come into contact with and forwarding them to the representative with the Shelby American Registry for inclusion.
