VIN #0001 1969 Shelby GT 350 poised to bring half a Million $

Auctions and sales of the Ford Mustang have continued to captivate the best of us, and this time, we’ve found one of the craziest ones we’ve seen in a long time. VIN #1 of the renowned 1969 Shelby GT350 Mustang variety is up for sale for $495,000 USD. That’s just plain silly, if you ask us. Half a million dollars for a Ford Mustang? C’mon, even we aren’t that crazy. This kind of money puts a potential sucker buyer into some amazing supercar territory for purchase.  So if one’s truly interested in turning heads, then there might be some other avenues of pursuit…

With just over 51K miles on the clock, this car is in rather good shape for consideration, actually.  The interesting part which took us for a few seconds–it’s a right-hand-drive, Australian car.  Crazy to think the first 1969 production Shelby Mustang was destined for the land down under.  The car carries the Vin# of 9F03M480001, proving it is not something to joke about.

What’ll be most interesting will be to see if this one actually goes for what ‘s being asked.  So far, no one’s made a solid bite–yet.  We poked around the shop on this one a little bit, and we think we’ll see this one on the Barrett-Jackson block before too long.  Until then…

If you want a closer look at the sales statistics, keep on reading.  If you are one of the statistics, well then, we guess you aren’t really surprised very much, as you currently hold the keys to one of the most iconic automobiles in American (and global) history…

July 2011 Ford Mustang sales posted

Like any cyclical market, the Ford Mustang sales trend follows suit with the adage “what goes up must come down” … and so on we go.  July’s final sales have been finalized, letting the June (2011 peak thus far) excitement down a bit amidst a continually downtrodden economy.  Add in a dash of triple-digit weather across most of the nation for nearly 40 days (and counting) and it’s not too hard to wonder why no one wants the 6-hour chess & tennis match of a dealership experience…new Ford Mustang or not.

Keep reading for a news brief from Ford on the latest Ford Mustang sales figures.
