Today, we have some noteworthy news for (especially well-heeled) classic pony car collectors: Road & Track Contributing Editor and resident Shelby expert has decided to sell off his amazingly well-preserved, 1965 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang. The car will cross the block at Mecum’s Monterey Auction from August 18th through the 20th, which coincides with the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Shown here, this ’65 Shelby GT350 has just 27,000 miles on the clock. It’s No. 277 of 500-some cars produced for the 1965 model year, and one of only two known to have its original window sticker, according to Mecum. What’s more amazing is that it’s spent 43 of the last 51 years in storage, and is – as far as we can tell – completely, utterly original, with its factory engine, T-10 transmission (4-speed “Toploader” manual), carburetor, radiator, body, glass, etc. It even has its original, 50-year-old spare tire and rear-mounted battery option.

Interested? Be sure to wear the pants with the deep pockets; this near-mint Shelby GT350 is expected to fetch $475k to $575k when it goes up for bidding later this month.
