Shelby GT500 found: Mint condition car now up for auction

A Shelby GT500 found in mint condition is not something you hear everyday. The news is even more amazing because the car has less than 9,000 miles on it. On March 26, a report by Investor Place revealed that the car had been sitting in the garage of a man since 1973. He is now deceased.

Its last sticker expired in January of that year. That means 40 years of dust covered the car. It had been purchased by Larry Brown in 1969, and he was the only owner of the vehicle. The car is now up for auction as a part of his estate sale, and it could bring in six figures when it goes up for auction in April. A similar car was auctioned for $114,900, and it had almost 90,000 miles on it, according to Boston.com.

Brown babied this car too. He did not drive it in 40 years, but he kept it maintained during that entire time. He didn't even wash it or drive it in the rain. The car has all original parts. The find is definitely earning notice by people on Twitter today as well. A car like this is a rare find.

What do you think? Would you like to take this car around the block a time or two?
