1989 Saleen SSC Mustang  #130  Last One Built

This 1989 Saleen SSC Mustang is  numbered 130 which means it is the last one ever built.   This car sold for $18,500 in Skagit, Washington.  The first person that came to look at it bought it right away.   This price is on the low side given the low mileage and condition.  Another one sold this year at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sold for $41,800.

I just wanted to document this car  and say the new owner got an amazing deal!

1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible For Sale
Location: San Jose, California
Matching Numbers
Odometer: 66,000 Original Miles
Former Playboy Playmate Car in the 1970’s

Here is a 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible for sale in the San Francisco area.   It is a matching number example and rare with only 402 convertibles made in 1968.   Seller states this car is even more rare due to its serial number indicating it was built in 1967.   I recently came across a white GT500 for sale for $180,000 so this maybe a good deal.    I have never seen this color on a Shelby but its stunning.  It is a gold color that was rarely ordered when new.   The car has been reprayed once before and the top was changed from white to black.    This car has also been part of the Shelby Registry for over 30 years and has only 66,000 original miles.

Location: Alburquerque, New Mexico
Rare Azure Blue

This rare Chevrolet Camaro car with 28 factory options sold on December 12, 1968 to Patricia Murray from Huntington Beach, California .  It was purchased at Fletcher Chevrolet in Encino, California for $4,590.24.   The Chevrolet Corvette & Ford Shelby GT500 sold for the same price in ’69.  The ’69 Z28 sold for less. Only the ’69 Yenko & Zl1 sold for more.

Seller:

Seller states  it was ordered with 28 factory options. Many of which are extremely rare. Not only is this the most highly (Factory) rare optioned ’69 Camaro ever built, it is the most highly rare optioned First Gen period.   Not once has one showed up with this many rare options, all in one package.

Having all these options in a First Gen Camaro is enough to satisfy any First Gen enthusiast, but what really sets this car apart from all the rest is it’s “Special Order Paint” option: GM Paint Code 80; “Powder Blue”. This is the only

2013 Perana Z-One For Sale
Location:  Los Angeles, California
VIN:  PPGUSZIC07

The Perana Z-One is built by coachbuilders Zagato and Perana Performance Group.  They are a south african vehicle manufacturer.   This is 1 of 7 in the USA.   They are based off of the 6th generation Corvette.    There will only be 999 cars built per year to assure exclusivity.   Zagato has opened a new design center in the heart of car culture in Santa Monica, California.    This is where the Perana Z-One was designed and styled.   It would be interesting to get a close look at one of these cars.   I am curious if it still feels like a corvette.

Would you want one of these in your garage?

Chassis no. 404/X/3075
Engine no. BS1/MKII/278
Body no. 5876

Arnolt-Bristols were built largely by hand and in limited quantities, just 142 were constructed over a period of seven years, with 130 being sold, as 12 were destroyed in a Chicago warehouse fire.

The car offered here is one of approximately 80 Arnolt-Bristols that remain extant today. According to its restorer, Jack Farland, it began life as one of two cars owned by a husband and wife who fancied themselves club racers. The couple sold his car in the late 1950s to another enthusiast in Illinois, George Adamaek. Mr. Adamaek raced the car until 1966, then stored it in his garage for nearly five decades before selling it to Mr. Farland, who passed it thereafter to the consignor.

Farland Classic Restoration of Englewood, Colorado, then undertook a meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration of the car to its original condition, reportedly taking approximately 6,000 hours. The car was completely disassembled,
