Recommended Posts

Why do you think the bid is only $13,900 with only 7 hours left?

30K beat on miles in rental service, my guess is high teens is where this should sell due to the mileage, maybe a little higher due to being a Vert.  There are several on Ebay for $30K plus and NONE have bids, the car does not have much demand.  Beautiful car, but dated transmission and tech/interior as well as beat on rental mileage in my opinion is a detractor.

I agree and I have an 07 vert myself.

As long as the public decides to compare the Hertz Shelbys to newer technology they will obviously always suffer by comparison.    Same goes for "beat on rental" stigma.  Then again, so do the 1966 GT350H cars.  Doesn't matter to me and the rest of the die hard enthusiasts that appreciate these cars for what they are/were when they were released.  They are extremely limited historically significant cars.  No more, no less.  You either like them and want to pay for them, or you don't.

If you like them (I do), then they certainly are inexpensive. Mine is a daily driver, so I bet it fits in this lower price category. It's not a GT500, or Hellcat. But, it is an authentic historical Shelby. I won't be selling mine cause I like it too. ?

I ran into another example years ago. In 1986 I bought a brand new 4 cylinder GLH turbo. Basically a Dodge Omni. Shelby built a version of this, the GLHS. It was fast! On the track it beat the 1966 Shelby Mustang in everything! Astounded everybody. Shelby said something like "of course I built a faster car than 20 years ago". I guess I am saying speed and power are not the only factor  - and I would rather have a 1966 Shelby. ???

It reminds me of when I first started going to Shelby meets n the late 70s and early 80s. You couldn't get anyone to talk to you if you had one, and couldn't give them away if you were trying to sell one. My how times change. (Don't even get me started on replica Cobras!)
