Hello. I´m very interested on buying this super snake from Shelby Collectibles:

But I always demand that the real car actually existed. In this case I cannot find a real thing that matches 100% with this model. The most similar car I found has the front lights in different positions: model is on both sides of the grille, and the real thing has them centered.

Someone could help me telling me if SC model matches with a real car? If so, I would like a link with the pictures of it. Thank you.

SC I believe made a couple variants of the GT500. Will check mine tonight to confirm. I think it's the eleanor version that has the lights centered on the grille. Prob could just swap them around or look for two and do a little modding.

I think it´s not so easy as you said. If you watch the picture accurately, you´ll check that the grille has the mold ready for those lamps. If you remove them, the base of the lamp will still remain.

SC did a lot of versions of this mold, more than I expected. With headlamps on both sides, up in front, down in front, many colours, super snake´s kind of stripe. Even I discovered a GT500CR, with a total different engine. But I have not found pictures of all of them.
