Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will throttle up the excitement for Ford Performance and Shelby American vehicles, fueled by the thrilling new Hollywood film “Ford v Ferrari” in theaters worldwide. From classic Shelby Mustangs like the 1967 Shelby GT500 (Lot #1348) to a 2017 Ford GT (Lot #1392), some of the best examples of Ford and Shelby performance vehicles will cross the auction block this January at No Reserve.
“The 1-2-3 LeMans win by Ford and Shelby in 1966 is one of the greatest success stories in racing history,” said Craig Jackson chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Not only did Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, led by Lee Iacocca and Henry Ford II, dethrone Ferrari at Le Mans, they also inspired generations to believe that anything is possible. Their legacy is immeasurable and their passion can be found in every vehicle they inspired. We’re proud to have some of the very best examples Ford Performance and Shelby vehicles cross our block in Scottsdale.”
Ten Ford GTs are currently consigned to cross the Scottsdale auction block, including Lot #1396, the first 2005 Ford GT that was ever offered to the public for sale. Completed on June 29, 2004, this GT carries VIN 003 and features Carroll Shelby’s iconic autograph on the dash. A 2017 Ford GT (Lot #1417) is finished in a special Verde Mantis exterior and features the Extended Carbon Fiber Package and Dark Energy Interior Package.

“This is an incredible time to be a Ford and Shelby enthusiast,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The film ‘Ford v Ferrari’ has brought their stories to life on the big screen in pure Hollywood style. These two iconic brands have forever impacted the world of performance driving. Their racing DNA runs through every vehicle Ford Performance and Shelby American builds today. We couldn’t be more thrilled to help build on that legacy in January.”
