According to Autoweek, Carroll's pwn '09 GT500KR will be up for auction at the Vicari auction to be held in Biloxi. I believe that it is held around the same time as the Crusin' the coast event.

I know, I know, I said #16 before, but that's what they told me. Now it's 13. Is it too late to send it back?

I wonder who decided to put it on the block? This will be interesting indeed. Thanks falcon for posting.

I wonder what differences from a production KR that one may have. Did Mr. Shelby just take a stocker from the production line, or was that one special in some way? I doubt he required more power (at his age), but who knows...? Anyone have more info on that car?

Wasn't one of the black KRs a glass roof car? Maybe this is it.

The KR that has the glass roof was given to Carroll from Ford at his 85th birthday bash.

Nope. I looked it up. Not a glass roof car. Looks like it has the Shaker 1000. Maybe Robert could let us know more about it? I wonder what #it is?

I thought the black w/glass roof was auctioned off from the very begining. It is the only '07-'09 GT500 with a factory glass roof...and a KR to top it off.

The CSM # is a date? That doesn't make sense. Also the ad on the auction site lists the car as an '09 but the badging indicates it's a '08. The '09s don't have 40th anniversary on them.

OK. I went on the actual auction site. The car listed is an '09. It is CSM 09KR0445. The pics that Rob has posted of Carroll with the black KR is a different car, an '08 not an '09.

From what I remember the car was given to him on his birthday. That is why it had a date for the CSM#. I could be wrong but that's what I remember.
I do know that there are several KRs out there that don't have the traditional KR CSM #.
Hopefully some day SA will provide an actual list of all the KR CSM #.

That's my recollection also. If I remember correctly, it was auctioned to Ron Pratte at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale in January 2008.

They don't seem to do a very good job of previewing cars up for auction (maybe it's too early?), but I did find this online newsletter with some information on the car.

From that above .pdf, it looks as though he may have had TWO black KRs; the '08 with the birthday CSM#, and also that '09 going to auction.
I need to get another KR to drive at my ranch. First, I need the ranch... :)

Get your priorities right Oldlugs! It's the KR 1st THEN the ranch!

I heard the the orginal 2007 (the one sold at the auction for $550,000) was crushed and was replaced with a registationable one. I believe the CSM# on that one is 08KRXXXX. Yes all X's...

Again that's just what I heard.

It's hard to say. What did Amy Bolyn's sell for?

LOL! Her name associated with the car would probably make it worth less.

I'm thinking Shelbys KR is gonna bring a huge #.

The correct CSM is Jan112008

It's one a few irrelgular CSM numbered Shelby models.

Correct. Some are confusing this 2009 KR with Carroll's B-day KR that is still in Carroll's collection. This 2009 KR was shipped to Texas and was titled in Carroll's name. At some point this 2009 KR was sold off and is now currently being put up for auction by the current owner.

Do you have any idea what the current owner paid for the car?

Unfortunately not but let me send him an email and see what info he's willing to share on how he purchased the KR. Gotta be a story there.

Yes, would be interesting to hear what transpired in the past and what they are expecting at this point.
Auctions can be quite unpredictable though.
