Mecum Kissimmee: A Special Shelby

01/26/2013

The star cars keep rolling across the red carpet in Kissimmee and our cameras have been there catching it live. There’s been one special car everyone was waiting to see and it crossed the block earlier today. It’s one of those cars we just love – a garage find that had been hidden away for 28 years. We’re talking about the 1966 Ford Mustang SCCA Group 2 A/Sedan Racer. It’s number 12 of only 16 produced.

In its early history it took first place at Pan American Trans-Am, Green Valley, Texas in 1966 and first at the Continental Divide SCCA National in 1966. It was even a cover model – appearing on the December 1966 cover of Sports Car Graphic.

How it ended up hidden away for 28 years we’re not sure, but now that it’s made its grand re-entrance into the car loving society do you care to guess how much it sold for? 

This special Shelby for $400,000.
