With Carroll Shelby’s grandson Aaron on stage, Barrett-Jackson will auction the 50th anniversary Shelby GT-H (CSM160001C) concept and prototype car to benefit the Carroll Shelby Foundation. The car (above) will be sold with no reserve during this weekend’s inaugural Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The sale will also feature a broad range of vintage cars, customs, supercars and late-model vehicles, including a selection of GM performance machines.
Earlier this year, Shelby American unveiled a special run of performance-modified Ford Mustang GTs named the Shelby GT-H. The car celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Shelby GT350-H “Rent-A-Racer,” that was born when Carroll Shelby approached Hertz about putting customers in the driver’s seat of special edition car. The vehicle being auctioned, CSM160001C, is both the concept and prototype car for the 2016 program, the vehicle featured in all promotional materials and photographs.
“Barrett-Jackson has sold more concepts, prototypes and serial number one cars for automakers than any other auction house in the world,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Car manufacturers bring these vehicles to Barrett-Jackson because we attract the most passionate, most dedicated collectors and enthusiasts in the world. Carroll Shelby was a close friend and a fixture at our events. We’re pleased to help raise money for Carroll’s charity by giving someone the opportunity to own this very special car.”
