There is no doubt that original, unrestored cars are one of the hottest segments of the collector car market right now. This 1969 Shelby GT500 definitely ticks off all of the right boxes for what could be some spirited bidding when it goes to auction in late April. Only 8,531 original miles, (mostly) original paint, one owner and a part of local folklore in its home town of Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. So what is the twist here? It is not being shipped to Scottsdale, Arizona for a big glitzy prime time auction, but it is being sold directly from the estate of the owner by a local auction house. No online or phone bidding here, you’ll have to attend to bid.
The Hemi powered 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T is one of the most desirable muscle cars in existence. Only 70 were built. A black example is very rare with only 6 known to have been produced. A black one still wearing its original paint? You are looking at the only one in existence.
