1966 Shelby Mustang GT 350

Barn find – it’s a phrase that those of us in the muscle car world know all too well. For guys like me stumbling across a barn find is like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. You see sometimes classic cars are packed away by their original owners and or family members and forgotten about over time. These poor cars sit in storage facilities, old buildings and vacant garages until someone stumbles upon them and brings them back to life. Most of the time finding a car turns out to be a hoax, sort of like a big fish that gotta away story. Other times however lightening strikes, and when it does, it usually strikes big. Bill Fair has been an auctioneer for the last 40 years and has come across many different things in his time. He was however blown away when whilst cleaning out a storage facility he came upon a very rare 1966 Shelby GT 350 Mustang that was sold from Carroll Shelby’s personal car lot. The car was in near perfect condition, as it had been sitting for the last 26 years. Fair estimates the value of the rare Shelby to be around $200,000, a number which he hopes it’ll bring at auction.

    If I found one of these in storage, I would not sell this. It’s a beautiful car and it’s free. If I found 3 then maybe I’d sell one. hahahaha
