Sweet ride.
60 to 70K should put you behind the wheel.

Dunno, there is a 68 500 forsale in my province for $142,500.

Keep in mind $142,500 is in CDN dollars. About ~110-115 USD methinks.

Re: What's this worth?

Would that be BC or Ontario?

Seems that some people just have too much money to burn.

What Does It Go For, Or What Is It "Worth"?

Disclaimer: While some will quickly brand this as a trolling post (as
some have probably branded me a troll), I can only say it is not meant
to be. It is only meant to cause a discussion as to the is, what I
feel, an over-inflation of prices for these cars.

Okay, lets start... think about this. Even at the lower end of
$60K-$70K for this car, is it really worth it? Okay, for some who have
the excess cash, storage space, and collect these cars, perhaps. But
for the average enthusiast who wants to slide a hobby car into his/her
2 or 3 car garage, are they really going to get their money's worth.
And by "money's worth", I'm taking about behind-the-wheel enjoyment
(and not the starring at it while it's parked in the garage.) I say
this because, really, how many miles (and the accompanying stone chips,
bug stains, rust, corrosion, and other wear-and tear.) are you going to
be able to log on a car like this Shelby before its value starts to
plummit? Not to mention the fear of getting into a fender bender, or
throwing a rod winding it up... and god forbid you do this to a
low-mileage original! Sure, the same can be said of a new
high-performance car, but at least with one of those the replacement
parts/trim pieces are readily available and affordable. Something that
can't be said for many of 50's-60's collectors cars.

Let me close by saying, the hobby NEEDS folks to take care of our
automotive history. And I appreciate what these collectors and what
do; however, I feel they should be able to do it for much less cost. A
realistic price for this Shelby, in my eyes, $50K, tops. The average,
more like $30K-$40K.

Your comments...?
