Indisputably, one of the most widely recognized, respected, and influential people in the history of Ford Motors, besides Mr. Henry Ford himself, is Carroll Shelby. If you’ve never heard of him – may God help you – he is the Shelby in “Shelby Cobra” and “Shelby Mustang.” The man is a legend, to say the least. And now you have the chance to own a 1966 Shelby Mustang Fastback that was owned by Mr. Shelby himself – if you can afford it.

Going up for auction at Mecum Dallas from November 2-5, this impeccable 1966 Shelby Mustang (No. 1822, 1 of 999 produced) is equipped with a standard-issue Shelby 289/306 HP V-8 engine with dual-exhaust, a four cylinder carburetor, and a high-performance C6 3-speed automatic transmission. It also features independent front suspension with coil springs, a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, front disk and rear drum brakes, and a stamped steel hood. There’s no information on auction price, but you can bet on this gorgeous piece of automotive history being a bank breaker. [Purchase]
