Ok, I don't want to stir a hornets nest and forgive me if this has been addressed. But I am curious on others' thoughts on the value of a "Clone". This is not about the virtue to the clone; I personally like them and would have no problem owning one...aside from affording one. I have been casually searching for an 67 390 fastback and have come across several that have been turned into Shelby clones...some of them are beautifully done and I wouldn't hesitate to buy if they weren't going for a king's ransom. Here's my question. Is the value of the clone enhanced by the fact the underlying VIN is an S code? To my line of thinking, why wouldn't someone just use a Dynacorn shell or more basic C code as the foundation for their clone? if a clone is well done, but obviously a clone, does it matter if it has a salvage title or state issued VIN? Isn't the S code valuable enough in it's own right to try and keep it original? In my opinion, once you have gone the route of a clone with a car, you have negated any collector value of the underlying VIN...maybe I am off base. Again, I am just newbie to the hobby. I find it very frustrating as I search for my dream and Benza wants $25k for what amounts to basically a VIN and a pile of rust. Vanguard wants 6 figures for a well done clone. Rant over, but interested in others thought. At this point I may just go the Dynacorn route and effectively build a kit car.
