The American muscle car played a very important role in American culture in the 50s, 60, and 70s. This influence spread globally and not just in automotive culture, but American culture as well. Muscle cars defined who we were as a society at the time. The Ford Motor Company has a very big role in that history as well as in American history as well. This list looks at the most expensive Ford muscle cars to sell at auction.
Carroll Shelby, while an independent manufacturer has a very strong relationship with Ford throughout the 60s and 70s. In fact, Shelby was involved in most, if not all of Ford’s racing activities at the time. This includes the legendary Mustang and GT40. For that reason, I am including the vehicles of Carroll Shelby as an extension of the Ford Motor Company.
Without further ado, here is the list.
First 2007 Shelby GT 350 – $600,000
This last vehicle is also a Shelby, in fact it was the first retail 2007 Shelby GT 350 and it sold in early 2007 in Arizona for $600,000.
Inspired by the Shelby GT-H Hertz rental Mustang package, vehicle #001 carried the same colors as the original Hertz GT 350s. All of the proceeds of the sale of this vehicle went to Carroll Shelby’s Children’s Foundation.
