Shelby Black Hornet auction in December

The 1968 Shelby EXP500 CSS “Black Hornet” from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection will be on the auction block on December 2. The auction is sponsored by Restoration Hardware and will be hosted by eBay. Most of the proceeding will benefit Carroll Shelby’s Children’s Foundation(tm), a non-profit helping children with heart and kidney disorders.

About the car:

“Created under the direction of racing legend Carroll Shelby, the Shelby EXP500 CSS “Black Hornet” pays tribute to its chrome and green prototype, the Shelby Green Hornet, and is the only approved reproduction. Like its predecessor, the “Black Hornet” sports the famous scoops and stripes, powered by a Cobra Jet 428 V8 engine with a heart-pounding 335 horsepower. The car began life as a vintage 1968 Mustang, and was transformed into an authentic Shelby muscle car worthy of inclusion in the Shelby Worldwide Registry.”

Bidding will start at $100,000 and the auction will be open for bidding from December 2 through 12. 

We think that the Shelby auction will fetch $500,000 easily. But because the car is from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection and due its uniqueness, it may very well go over that. We’ll track the auction ongoing and post the results on the 12th.

What’s your estimate on the final hammer price?

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever
    run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained
    about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
