For instance, the Bright Yellow-painted example you’re looking at is one of the only 43 units finished in this color. It still has its original 428 cubic inch V8 engine, four-speed manual transmission, rear axle body panels and interior.

Recently restored by a Shelby specialist, the concours-ready musclecar will be crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction next week, and, considering it has only 20,000 original miles on the odometer and an original Shelby VIN tag, it should found a new owner for a respectable amount of money.

A gorgeous pony car from the past that will make its future customer very happy...
