Two Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s Found After 15 Years Now Worth A Fortune



Every once in awhile, sifting through old junk pays off, like this car dealer found out. Classic Cars of Sarasota recently dug a pair of 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s out of a warehouse where they were parked and left for 15 years. One is a standard GT500 with 102,000 miles on it, the other is a rare GT500 KR that still has its factory 428 Cobra Jet V8.

The Lime Gold fastback is nearly all-original and well-preserved, but not perfect which leads the Hagerty Price Guide pricing it at over $200,000. Classic Cars of Sarasota cleaned it up and says its mechanically excellent and has it listed for $135,000 but is also holding an eBay auction through July 17.

The standard GT500 has already been sold for an undisclosed amount.
