1967 Shelby GT500 Gable-7

 

 

 

 

 

Fantastic Original with Great History, Documentation and more The 1967 Shelby GT500 is a lot of things to many different people. To some its the ultimate muscle car/grand tourer, others love it for being the first Mustang to be powered by the 428. Many others are infatuated with the car for being the first of Shelby's legendary GT500, other love it for being the last of Shelby's LA build GT500s. While many others just love it for the beautiful, powerful styling and Legendary name associated with it. Whether you're a collector or enthusiast, and whatever your reasoning, there is no denying that they are one of the most iconic muscle cars of all time. This 1967 Shelby GT500 was shipped April 24th to Jim Lebens Ford. A special car from day one being a factory Wimbledon White with black interior, factory 4 speed GT500, this car was destined to be cherished by its proprietors, but it would be difficult for anyone to predict how well the car would be maintained and cared for almost 50 years down the road. Going by the accompanying documentation in the form of copies of original titles and the information in the Shelby World Registry, this car would end up in Corpus Christi Texas by 1982. Still in excellent original condition, it would remain located in that town until 1989 when it was purchased by John Clark Gable in Malibu California, son of Hollywood legend Clark Gable. There it would remain until 1996 when it was acquired by another California car collector who was drawn to it by the great original condition. Today, the car remains a very original example of the desirable 1967 Shelby GT500. From the factory applied Wimbledon White paint, showing some patina from the 47 years of aging and use to the great original interior, its a rare reference to how the cars were built back in the day. Per the World Registry, the motor has been removed, freshened and detailed to ensure it still runs strong. With great documentation from copies of titles back to 1982, to original stickers from the all over the car, this Shelby remains a great example of how they were built and how they can be maintained. With interesting owner history and a very desirable factory livery, its a truly rare and unique opportunity not to be over looked.

1965 Roush Supeformance Shelby Cobra – Sold

Posted on May 19, 2016

Superformance Cobra-6

 

 

 

 

 

This Roush/Superformance collaboration takes the term Black on Black to a whole new level. Almost every part with the exception of the lettering on the gauges has either been painted black or black chrome plated. From the carbon racing stripes to the modern 18″ Michelin pilot rubber and giant Wilwood brakes, this Cobra manages to stand out from the sea of Cobra replicas.
Some of the upgrades that set this apart from a standard Superformance Cobra are the Roush assembled 427SR engine making 523 hp, 525lb-ft, which is hooked to a Tremec 5 speed gearbox that funnels all the power to a Dana Hydra-Lok rear with 3.46:1 gears. Suspension is adjustable coilovers by Bilstein and the wheels are custom 18″ American Racing 427-series pin drive wheels. Giant Wilwood 6-piston front calipers and 2 piece rotors. The glovebox door is signed by Jack Roush. A Roush quickshifter sits on top of the transmission tunnel. The clutch and flywheel have also been lightened.
The whole car weighs a featherweight 2450 lbs, and will run the 1/4 mile in 11.2 seconds. That's without traction, stability or launch control.
This Cobra carries a clean CA title and SB100 registration means it is smog exempt (in California). This insane Cobra has only covered 3100 +/- miles from new and is personally signed by Roush.

1955 Mercedes 190SL – Sold

Posted on Sep 30, 2015

1955 Mercede 190SL-19

 

 

 

 

 

In 1954, Mercedes introduced its two-door 190SL at the New York Auto Show. Fifteen months later the production version was displayed at the 1955 Geneva Auto Show.  This is one of only 1727 units made in it's inaugural year, 1955.   The car became very popular, outselling it's higher end counter part - the 300SL - by eight to one.  The 190SL production run lasted from 1955 through 1963. Most of the body-styles were open roadsters the rest were coupes. Under the hood is an 1897 cc four-cylinder OHC engine that was capable of producing around 105 horsepower. It took 14.5 seconds to go from zero to sixty and had a top speed of nearly 110 mph. Drum brakes were placed on all four corners of the 14 foot, one inch vehicle. Servo brakes were optional until 1956 at which point they became standard. In comparison to many other nameplates, this is a very low number, guarantying its exclusivity and rarity in today's standards. It was a beautiful sibling to the prestigious and awe-inspiring gullwing door 300SL.  

The restoration of this beautiful example was completed in 2012.  It is a 3 owner, numbers matching car, documented by Mercedes Benz.  Much care has been taken to ensure originality in the restoration process, from the original Bosch headlight trim rings down to the original spare and jack in the trunk.   The problematic Solex carburetors have been replaced with Webers to improve drive-ability, but the original carbs come with the car.  The 1955 year was unique in that it has the goldwing style seats, making this first production year even more collectible.  The car runs and drives great, with only a few hundred miles on it since restoration.  A show stopper from any angle that would make any collection proud.
