Was there something special about the 6380 mile white car that brought such strong dollars?Looks like the GTs did pretty well at Barrett Jackson! Prices include buyer premium.
‘06 White 10,431 miles $330,000
‘05 Midnight Blue 1390 miles $396,000
One owner ‘05 White 6380 miles $440,000
Two different cars.Shelby's Super Snake Cobra (the survivor of the car that was featured in Cosby's 200MPH, Cosby did return the car and the eventual owner wrecked it on the PCH and died) sold for 5.5M (5M+10%).
Some of the first VIN charity cars did very well.
The one sold was CSX3015, the "other" of the SuperSnakes. I said they were different cars. 3015 was Shelby's until Ron Pratt bought it.Two different cars.
The remains of the Cosby car were reconstructed into a car again. This one was Shelby's personal car. I don't know where the car holding the Cosby VIN tag is, but the Cobra registrar does.
Sorry, I misread your post.The one sold was CSX3015, the "other" of the SuperSnakes. I said they were different cars. 3015 was Shelby's until Ron Pratt bought it.
The Cosby car was CSX3303. It did a nose dive off the PCH, the driver was killed (when in doubt, blame the car, he said the throttle stuck before it went over). The car was "maybe" salvaged, maybe rebuilt, but it has been the "I'll have it ready any day now" ;promise for decades, latest from some guy in England (not Angliss). No proof the car exists (or that the "VIN tag" was saved) really exists has ever been confirmed. Supposedly went to auction but it was withdrawn when the authenticity was questioned. It's one of those "a friend said he knows someone that's seen it" but no first hand confirmation has ever come out. Old wive's tale? Who knows. Meanwhile, it's a unicorn. But the mid-engine Corvette was a unicorn for decades and eventually it appeared too.
