Bonhams is offering up for auction selections from the personal collection of the Legendary Carroll Shelby.
An eclectic mix representing nearly a century of American automotive history, offerings include the ever enduring 1927 Ford Model T through to the 2008 Shelby GT500KR, a modern muscle heavyweight. Further, every stage of Shelby's fabled career is chronicled. A continuation series Cobra documents his early partnership with the Blue Oval, while a selection of Mustangs displays his contribution into turning the pony car into a thoroughbred.
The revitalization of the Chrysler brand in the 1980's brought about by Lee Iacocca was greatly helped by Carroll's contributions, and as such, the Charger GSLH, CSX and Shelby Dakota pickup are all present. Shifting into the turn of the millennia, Shelby boldly moved into the next century with a home-grown creation of a from-the-ground-up supercar, and on offer is the very first example of the Series 1.
A humble Chicken Farmer from Texas, Carroll Shelby's story defines the American dream, and helped shape the automotive landscape of the second half of the 20th Century. Now is your opportunity to purchase a piece of history.
