Clearly Insane Person Wants $275,000 for ’67 Shelby Restomod!
The seller claims this is an original 1967 Shelby Mustang, and if he’s correct, it seems a little silly to have turned it into a restomod. Sure, the interior and drivetrain have been pulled from a 2009 Shelby, so there’s an attempt to maintain the pedigree… But seriously? How high is this person?
As soon as I saw this, I started doing the math on how much it would cost to put something like this together, and I was pleased to see someone had already done the work for me in the comments section of the auction. Here’s what they wrote:
“How ’bout $3.75 million for it? C’mon, it’s worth way more than $275,000. You’ve got a 67shelby body (let’s say $100k), then an 09 GT 500
drivetrain (let’s say $50k) and add in 42,000 hours in labor @ $100 an
hour and I think $3.75mil is a good deal. Especially since it’s definitely ‘one of a kind’. Let me know. You might post this offer to get more interested buyers.“
And as if to prove he’s a couple of tacos short of a combination plate, the seller responded with the text below.
“thanks for your interest, yes i am sure it is worth much more and i do have a
prospective buyer who wants to take it to barrett jackson but isn’t sure how
much it would bring, i guess one would just have to take it and see!“
Look, I’m not saying this isn’t cool. But it’s so overpriced that it’s never going to sell for anything near this price. And I can’t imagine that the deep pocket crowd at Barrett Jackson are going to pony up for baby even if it did roll across the block there. You can check out the eBay listing here.
How much do you think this project is worth? Head over to the Forum and sound off!
