This is going to be one exciting auction on 3rd June 2018. Bonhams will be auctioning Carroll Shelby’s personal car collection in Greenwich CT 06830 and as you can imagine, will feature some delectable dishes totalling 24 vehicles which will include cars and trucks.¬†Carroll Shelby is arguably one of the pioneers of muscle cars and this auction is not to be missed.

The vehicles on offer will feature both Fords and Mopars representing his association with both ends of the car spectrum. Their worth is not just being owned by Carroll himself, but limited number vehicles, prototypes and ones associated with the rich and famous. A 1969 Shelby GT 500 from Jackie Cooper Jr., a 1935 Chrysler Airflow Sedan from Steve McQueen. The classics will include 2 1969 Shelby GT 500s, 1968 Shelby GT350, a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 Continuation and a 1967 Lincoln Continental.

From the many more modern rarities are included – 1999 Shelby 1 Series chassis 0001, a 2011 Shelby Cobra CSX 8027, 1982 Dodge Shelby Charger Prototype, 1983 Dodge/Shelby pickup concept, 1987 Dodge CSX no. 1, 1987 Shelby Charger GLH-S no. 1, 1987 Dodge Shelby Lancer no. 1, 1988 Dodge Shelby Dakota Prototype, 1989 Dodge CSX VNT no. 1, a 2008 Shelby GT500 KR and a 2011 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. An Oldsmobile-powered 1999 Series 1 from Shelby American being chassis 0001 is also available.


Vehicles that don’t clearly fit into the other slots include 2 De Tomasos, a 1987 GT5-S, a 1983 Pantera and a 1955 DeSoto. All vehicles have no reserve price. You can find out more details on the Bonhams website link below, but suffice to say that this is probably going to be the auction of the year.
