A Pantera with rust can become very expensive.

What I love about these sales are the sellers are honest about the condition and not trying to "get one over" on the buyer.

Reading the ebay ad and looking at the pictures closely, frankly, leaves me confused on where the smoking hot deal is.

Nice upper end driver quality 67/350/4spd cars (cars which are restored with respectable levels of condition, workmanship, and originality...but NOT concours cars) currently trade (in general) for between 115-155. It is a wide range that varies based on options, color, originality, history etc etc etc.

The car in question at 84k seems to be a fair deal for someone if that person is planning to keep the car the way it currently is, drive it, and not worry about it. But I could easily make the argument that the price paid is extremely strong if that person intends to bring the car up to the sort of condition which would justify the price range of a "nice driver" quality car discussed above. The buyer would probably spend twice the value difference between the purchase price and the end value to get the car to that level.  And then youd still be left with a lime/NOM car. Not disrespect to the car but it is what it is.

The only difference in the market this year vs years past is that really good cars are getting even more difficult year over year to find.  From my experience over the last year or so, the market has been pretty darn steady and strong.

Kind regards,
Vern

Vern:  I don't think it's a "smoking deal"..

But I think it's a fair price for a buyer that wants to drive a 67 GT 350 and worry about how "perfect" or "correct" it is later....

We all know that it's better to purchase a "done" car but it really doesn't fall into everyone's budget.

And more and more buyers are telling me that restoring their Shelby's turned into nightmares that they're "upside-down" on...

Just my .02

Bret,

Perhaps I wasnít clear in my post but I agree with your assessment that itís a fair price for this specific car and that it would make a good car to drive, enjoy, and not worry too much about.

 My post was made in dispute to the implication earlier in this thread that 84k for this car was a low sale result. Seems appropriate to me.

Kind regards,
Vern

Actually Vern I looked at the car after the family contacted me.

I thought it was worth in the 80's best...

Hey Bret,

Take a read of my previous post, I agree with you. I said the price seems fair (certainly not low like implied by other posters) and I also specifically said that a strong argument could be made for the price being strong/high market for this particular car.

So I think we are agreeing here?

I'd say so...

I sold three 67 GT 350 projects over the last few months....
They had much better integrity than this Jersey car but I got in the 60's and 70's...

This Jersey car doesn't have the correct engine or transmission..
But it got the buyer to "first base" at least....

How did you verify that it wasn't a HP engine? He does mention the heads being incorrect.

A nicely done 1967 Mustang fastback tribute to a GT500 well done just sold for 147+ fees at Barrett Jackson! So when they are done well in the right venue your 67GT350 is still very valuable

As an update and for the record the engine for this Shelby is a C5AE6015E with a 7A24 date code, according to the 67 registrar this DSO didnít stamp vins on the block.

The car went to a good home and the new owner is making improvements as we speak. The date codes on the block look good. It will be necessary to pull the pan to have a look to be sure but so far so good. It is great that the car went to an enthusiast.

LOL.  But, Brian - would you do anything for love?  But, I'm guessing, you won't do that...
