Carroll Shelby's Personal 1966 GT350H Mustang is Going to Auction

The retro muscle car is expected to fetch six figures.

By //Automotive

A vintage car grail is hitting the auction block this month. Shelby Mustangs are already prized among car collectors, but this 1966 GT350H Mustang has a value-boosting bonus: it was owned by legendary driver and car designer Carroll Shelby himself.

Sporting a retro white and blue paint job, the car boasted only three owners over the span of its 52-year lifespan: Hertz, a private owner, and then Shelby. Shelby set about restoring the car after purchasing it, removing the previous owner’s front valence and rear spoiler for original-style pieces. It retains some updates, including a newer roll bar and wheels, but is mostly faithful to the original build.

Bonhams will auction off the legendary ride on January 18, with final sale valuations reaching $150,000 USD to $200,000 USD. Meanwhile, the Fusion Motor Company is bringing back the “Eleanor” Mustang from 2000’s Gone in Sixty Seconds remake.
