    Default Bizarre story about 69 shellby gt 500

    Never washed his car because he feared rust? If only there were z owners out there like this guy.
    Somewhere out there i hope is a 1970 series 1 240z that has 44 years of dust instead of rust on it.

    1969 Shelby GT500 goes to auctioned off after 40 years in storage | Digital Trends


    Years ago, 1985 to be exact, I had an encounter with a green 69 cobra just like this one but
    it was kind of rough shape. The guy said he paid 30K for it then. It had original paint and
    original upholstery. The fiberglass hood had cracks and the fiberglass fenders were wavy.

    My job was to repair the bodywork and prep it for paint. It took me 2 months to get straight. The owner went on to become a senator in California. . I googled him and I see he now owns a 66
    cobra replica. He's quoted on a website saying "I want to own an original shelby"


    So it must have been sold. Too bad for him. Sounds like he regrets selling. It would be worth 6 figures now.

    This 73 Z only has 26 years of dust, and no rust.
