Shelby Mustang Sells for $3.85 Million

1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R driven by Ken Miles sets an auction record --

From the article --

    "Other than having been driven by Ken Miles, the car was the first Shelby R-Model competition car built and was the first Shelby Mustang to win a race. The vehicle was originally a Shelby American Factory team car and was an engineering test vehicle.

    The car is hailed as the most historically significant Shelby Mustang in the world. In addition to being wheeled by Ken Miles, it was also driven extensively by other iconic racing drivers, including Bob Bondurant, Chuck Cantwell, Peter Brock, and Jerry Titus. The vehicle racked up more than ten first-place finishes in B-production during the 1965 SCCA racing season."

Yes, folks . . . that is some provenance!! And the sale definitely benefited from the strong reaction to the Ford v Ferrari movie.
