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.
