GEAR: This 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is the most expensive Mustang ever
| May 21, 2013 |
According to Mustang Daily, during Mecum’s Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis recently, the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake you see above sold for $1.3 million. That’s more than any other car has ever sold for at Mecum’s and makes this Super Snake the most expensive Mustang ever sold.
And for good reason. You see, this is the only ’67 GT500 Super Snake in the world, Mustang Daily reports. It’s also the most powerful and the fastest Mustang that Shelby produced in the 60s. Under the hood lurks a 427-cubic-inch V-8 from a Ford GT40 race car which led to an $8,000 price tag which, fortunately for the lucky collector that netted this baby, killed interest in the car at the time.
