Far from "holy grail" status!
"Closest original R model" and it has FMS valve covers Yeah right!
Find the Green Hornet or GT-350S 1 and you can start talking about Crusades.

Regardless of the obvious modifications and changes, an R Model is what it is. The price reflects it. As does its' rarity and desireabilty.

Go ahead and show me a more valuable Mustang.

One mans' Holy Grail is another mans' "Yeah right."

Oh I can think of one right off the bat.
How about #00001?

I think that you can buy two or three R models and still have change left over with that puppy.

Who cares? FoMoCo owns it and it's in a museun in Dearborn.
If a Daytona Coupe can bring over $3,000,000 then the first Mustang produced in todays market would obviously bring well over a million dollars.
I have nothing against Shelbys. As a matter of fact I love the cars. All of them. This particular car is nothing for me to get excited over as it is a vintage racer and is no where near original condition. I feel that it is grossly over priced for a non original car that is still raced. Now if it was a 95+ point concours R model "period" restoration I would probably feel more like you do towards the car Joe.

We'll just have to assume it would be worth what you think. It won't ever be for sale so it's kinda of tough to relate to its value. By the way, it's actually #1000001 I believe.

If the Shelby in question was in fact a period correct restoration, I would like it better too. But seeing as how there are just more than two dozen or so left, and they rarely get sold, I'd buy what was available if I could afford it. In fact, I would rather have three 65 R Models than #1000001. And I'd give you the change. *G*

To each his own. There's not a wrong or a right to the subject. Just depends on what your personal preference is. Right?

You mean #100001. You got an extra zero in there.

As for me, for $185k I'd rather have 10 $18k Mustangs.
