1968 Shelby Cobra GT500KR
November 5, 2011 -- Earl Cornwell Jr., Auctioneer and Owner of Earl's Auction Company in Indianapolis, Indiana, presides over the sale at auction of the Hughbanks Estate, Plainfield, IN.
The centerpieces of the sale included a number of antique and collectable automobiles... including a 'nearly original' 1968 Shelby Cobra with just over 9,100 actual miles.
Watch as the bidding quickly jumps to over six figures, finally to close at a World Record Price of $253,000.
In the end, the vehicle is loaded and delivered, with Police escort, to the new owners location. Let's hope that one day this beauty will be shared for the enjoyment of all antique auto / muscle car enthusiasts.
1967 Mustang Junior body, bumpers and other restoration parts
If you have been searching high and low for a 1967 Mustang junior for sale and have come up empty handed because they are so rare, here is your chance to own one. the bodies have all of the details of the originals and are much larger than a pedal car so an adult can fit in them. Since the powercar Company of Mystic Ct went out of business in 1967 they never made any 1968 Mustang juniors. the side vents on the mold can be filled with clay before the fiberglass is laid up to make a 1968 body. If you do not know about the Mustang JR cars you should watch my other videos or go to my website http://www.jrcentral.com if you have an original and want restoration parts a list of available parts are here http://www.jrcentral.com/resources.html or if you have the talents you can recreate one from available parts. They never made a Shelby version but if you want to you can. Or an Elanor? These are not power wheels they are much bigger and more detailed.
