This 2004 Ford Shelby Cobra Concept Could Be Worth Millions

This 2004 Ford Shelby Cobra Concept Could Be Worth Millions

This one off Concept from Ford will be auctioned at Monterey, and it’s very special

The 2004 Shelby Cobra concept is as good as concept cars get. Unlike most other concepts which are just clay models or physical shells without a powertrain, this one-off Cobra is one that actually runs and can be driven. This one-of-a-kind lightweight roadster packs a lot of power under the hood, and it’s about to be auction off for, probably, big bucks.

This 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition Could Change Hands for Millions

Here’s your chance to own a limited edition version of the already limited Ford GT supercar

One of the rarest versions of the Ford GT supercar is headed for the auction block, and it could fetch up to seven figures if everything goes as anticipated. A 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition can be all yours provided you have the pockets to afford it. One of these special edition models is headed to a Mecum Auctions event that will run from November 12 to November 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It’s expected to fetch a king’s ransom considering that used 2018 GT models are already fetching over $1 million in the used (super)car market. Even better, this isn’t your “standard” Ford GT; it’s a Heritage Edition GT that was launched in 2018 and comes with, among other exclusive touches, an engine coil cover that’s signed by drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, the duo that claimed the Le Mans 24 Hours title back in 1967.

Car for Sale: Super Rare, Numbers Matching 1970 Shelby GT500 Fastback With Low Milage

Car for Sale: Super Rare, Numbers Matching 1970 Shelby GT500 Fastback With Low Milage

This rare 1970 Shelby GT500 looks cool in Acapulco Blue

The Mustang Shelby GT saga started in 1965 with the GT350, a sportier, lightweight version of the ’Stang. But Ford and Carroll Shelby took things up a notch in 1967, when he introduced the GT500, a not-so-light but significantly more powerful version of the Mustang. The GT500 remained in production as the range-topping Mustang until 1969, but unsold 1969 models were given 1970 identification numbers. With just 380 units rebadged for 1970, this fastback is hard to find, and low-mileage, well-maintained examples are extremely rare. If you’re looking for one, the folks over at Mecum Auctions are offering an example with just 57,000 miles on the odometer at the Kissimmee Summer Special in late August.

Ken Miles' Mustang Shelby GT350R Becomes The Most Expensive Mustang Ever Sold At Auction

Ken Miles’ Mustang Shelby GT350R Becomes The Most Expensive Mustang Ever Sold At Auction

The Bullitt Mustang’s reign as the top-selling Mustang didn’t last long

A 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R has become the most expensive Mustang ever sold at an auction setting. The record-breaking Shelby GT350R sold for a whopping $3.85 million, eclipsing the previous record-holder, the 1968 Mustang GT hero car that was driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt. No less than Ken Miles, the British racer who was prominently featured as one of the main characters in the movie, Ford v. Ferrari, drove the specific Shelby GT350R, nicknamed the “Flying Mustang.” The $3.85 million sale price now ascends to the top of the ladder as the single most expensive Mustang to ever sell at auction. It’s going to take a special Mustang to unseat the new record-holder.

The Most Expensive Mustang Is Now a 1965 Shelby GT350R With a Price of $3.85 Million

The Most Expensive Mustang Is Now a 1965 Shelby GT350R With a Price of $3.85 Million

Would you pay almost $4 million for a classic Shelby Mustang?

The first-generation Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic cars ever built, and for a 60-year-old classic it isn’t very expensive. You can buy several models for less than $100,000 and the rare versions aren’t as expensive as the Ferraris from the era, which are known to cost from as low as $5 million to as much as $50 million.

But some Mustangs can cost millions of dollars. Up until now, Steve McQueen’s Mustang from the Bullitt movie was the most expensive, having been auctioned off for $3.74 million in January 2020. Come July and that record has been surpassed by another Mustang from the era. The prototype version of the 1965 Shelby GT350R just crossed the block for $3.85 million, $14K more than McQueen’s green ’Stang.

The Original 1968 Bullitt Mustang Became the Most Expensive Mustang In History

The Original 1968 Bullitt Mustang Became the Most Expensive Mustang In History

The Bullitt Mustang has just cemented its place in automotive history

We’re not here to tell you that a lot of gearheads got the car virus thanks to the movie Bullitt. We won’t even tell you how great of an actor Steve McQueen was. We’re here to tell you that the original Bullitt Mustang sold for a fortune.

The car’s history itself is quite impressive, but the fact that in was able to fetch record-setting money at auction says a lot about what Bullitt, Steve McQueen, and an iconic car can mean to some people.

Cool Truck for Sale: 1956 Ford F-100 With a Shelby GT350 Voodoo Engine

Cool Truck for Sale: 1956 Ford F-100 With a Shelby GT350 Voodoo Engine

This truck is rebuilt in and out, and looks like a brilliant package overall!

Believe it or not, this is actually a Ford F-Series pickup truck. Although it is far from the conventional trucks that we’re used to seeing now, this wacky design was quite common back in the day. There aren’t many examples of this old-school truck available online today, but one example has somehow arrived on the Barrett-Jackson website.

However, this particular model is highly customized and comes packed with a modern Mustang V-8 Voodoo engine under the hood. And, the best part – it is mated to a manual transmission! Is this the best package or what?

You Can Own One of the Superformance Ford GT40 Replicas from the Ford v Ferrari Movie

You Can Own One of the Superformance Ford GT40 Replicas from the Ford v Ferrari Movie

You didn’t think they used the priceless historic cars, did you?

We’ve always wanted, at least once, to own a piece of history. The car shared by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby throughout the 1966 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a Ford GT40 Mk. II, is such an example. The identical-looking ’continuation’ Ford GT40 Mk. II seen in the recently released ’Ford v. Ferrari’ movie is another.

The good news is you can own the latter and brag that you’ll sit where Christian Bale did during filming. He’s no Ken Miles but he surely played the part convincingly well and all you have to do to get this baby blue 7.0-liter monster is be the highest bidder on lot #R554 during Mecum Auctions’ Kissimmee auction in January. Simple, right?

The Curious Case of John Cena's Ford GT

The Curious Case of John Cena’s Ford GT

It’s headed to the auction block for the third time in less than a year

The Ford GT that once belonged to John Cena is back in the news again for the same reason it’s appeared in the news so many times before. As improbable — maybe even impossible — as it sounds, the Liquid Blue Metallic Ford GT is back up for auction for the third time in the last two years. This time, the GT will once again go through Mecum Auctions, which, coincidentally, handled the supercar the last time it went up for auction at its Dallas event…four months ago. Say what you will about the Ford GT’s appeal, but it’s hard to imagine what kind of jinx this GT is carrying that’s turned it into the supercar equivalent of a hot potato.

Ford Manages to Ban Mecum from Selling the 2017 Ford GT Without Permission

Does Ford think it’s Ferrari now?

While it’s certainly the case that we’re living in a special time with regards to enthusiast vehicles, the flip side is a tangle of profit-seeking and litigious backlash, as Mecum Auctions found out after it sold a 2017 Ford GT in Indianapolis.

A One-of-One 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Sold for $2.2 Million at a Mecum Auction

A One-of-One 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Sold for $2.2 Million at a Mecum Auction

It’s unique and it’s powered by the engine that helped Ford win Le Mans

Let the brand-new 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 take the back seat for a moment because this one-of-one 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake is far cooler. Why? Well, it just became the most expensive Mustang sold at auction ever, breaking its own record, and its spec sheet is ludicrous for a car built 52 years ago.

If you’re looking for the road-going Mustang to end all Mustangs, this might just be it, and it was built back in 1967. It is the one, and only Shelby GT500 Super Snake built back then, a name that might ring a bell to you since the moniker has been used by all the extreme Shelby GT500 versions since 2007. But this one is the first, the daddy, the one that was too expensive to be put into production.

1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code

1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code

Ford’s prettier answer to the Corvette

The Thunderbird lived its last days as a two-seater sports car in 1957 which is when Ford introduced the 312 5.1-liter V-8 engine. That’s how the E-Code Thunderbird was born, the beefiest of them all and the closest alternative to the Corvette that Ford ever offered.

Ford debuted the Thunderbird at the Detroit Auto Show in February of 1954 and quickly dubbed it "personal car" so as to suggest it wasn’t a direct answer to GM’s Corvette. What it was, in all fairness, was a luxury sports car tailor-made for the kind of people that were looking for a more refined 2-seater model than the Corvette.

The 1957 Thunderbird was the last which retained the original two-passenger layout before Ford decided that their clientele would much rather go for a 4-seater sports car with added amenities and weight. So, for 1957, Ford made the most powerful T-Bird ever by introducing the 5.1-liter V-8 engine, in a number of guises. The twin quad-barrel carburetor ones were distinguishable by the letter E in the car’s VIN code - the source of the ’E-Bird’ nickname.
