Hey VMFers anyone get a glimpse of that '67 Shelby GT 500 convertible (prototype) at Volo Auto Museum for $109K. See at:http://www.volocars.com/showrm_frame.html

Cool ride! What's the history on that one?

This is what they have in the ad; "Only 400 1968 Shelby GT 500 convertibles were built. Well this isn't just one of them, this car was built by Shelby American for a prototype 1967 Shelby GT 500 convertible. This was the only one ever built. like Eleanor, (the famous '67 that was stolen in gone in 60 seconds), so was this car stolen right from Shelby American. When the car was recovered it had been completely stripped. Being late enough in the year Shelby rebuilt this car as a 1968 and sold it as a used car. It was also the car used in the 1968 Shelby brochures. This is truly a one of a kind car with a unique and mysterious past as no one really knows what the prototype looked like. This is the 1st Shelby convertible ever built."

I saw this car on ebay recently with a starting bid of 50k. I
think it only got to the mid 50s or so. I've seen Volo advertised
in the Mustang and Ford Trader. They always have some
interesting stuff. I would imagine that there is some documentation to back up their claims on this car's pedigree.
I'm not sure 109k is a realistic price, regardless of the docs.


65 FB "J" 302 lots of mods. 94 GT K&N only.

I saw this car when I went to Volo two weeks ago. The car is a lot less appealing in person. That photo looks excellent, but the car is actually pretty rough with a lot of scratches and small dents. I was quite shocked by the price. Even if the car's background can be documented, I think the price is pretty steep.

Kind an interesting car but I had heard it was a rough car without many of the original parts as explained in its history.

Now that I see it up if sale I wonder why they called me a few weeks ago for some information. I can only guess they choose to sell the car rather than restore it. Looks like something someone could dump a whole lot of money in.... But I'ld bet it will find a home with someone
