Our friends over at HotRod.com have posted a great little story about a truly awesome barn find. Something we all wish we’d come across. A 1967 Shelby GT500.
The car, which belongs to Scott Drake’s Paul Kerner was recently displayed ‘as is’ at the Mustang 50th anniversary show in Las Vegas.
The car was purchased in 1997 as a true barn find. “A coworker found the car. He said it was coming out the next day in the local Recycler, so if I wanted the car, I had to buy it now.” So then and there the car was purchased for $14,000. Yes, you read that right.
The car has sat in his garage for quite some time and he admits it’s something he’s just “never got around to”.
Though what is interesting about the car is in 2003 a rep for Kylie Minogue got in touch wanting to buy it for $100,000 for her father Ron. Paul, in no hurry to sell, wanted $110k and so the deal didn’t happen.
Funnily enough only a six years later news hit that Ron Minogue got duped out of a fake 1968 GT500
So today the car still remains as it was found all those years ago. Head on over to HotRod.com for the full story and pictures.
