Friend of yours?

I saw a bunch of low-mile (or no-mile) examples of this car that have brought in miserable (if not horrible) $$$ at the collector car auctions.

If you own one, you are gonna take a bath selling it!

DO not know the owner. Definitely did not go over like Shelby expected.

:agree: I am still kicking myself for not buying a 1965 289 Cobra in 1975 for $4500. I also had a chance to buy a leftover new Pantera for $11k about the same time :nuts:

What kind of engine was in those Series 1's??

Looks like a front mount, but it could be the radiator I guess...

Olds V-8...from the aurua....a supercharger package was offered

I had a gentlemens race with one on Route 8 in Connecticut, nothing crazy just crusing at about 110mph. It sounds and looks good on the road, but if I had to have a Shelby, it would have to be the Cobra! I think it's a bad boy looking car.
