A Collection Of Three Shelby Cobras Sell For $7M At Auction. A trio of Shelby Cobras sold for a combined $7 million this past weekend at Mecum Auctions.
The cars were from the estate of avid collector Steven Juliano, who died from pancreatic cancer last year.
Up for sale on the auction block at the Mecum Auctions Indianapolis event, the main event of the group was a 1967 427 S/C Cobra Roadster with 10,000 miles on it and all original or new old stock parts, including its factory-delivered Goodyear Bluestreak tires. The car, one of only 27 built, sold for $2,860,000.
A 1966 Shelby 427 Roadster that’s not quite as rare or valuable as the S/C nevertheless went for $2,420,000, which is nearly 10 times the $250,000 price it got for it the last time it was sold to the public in 1987.
The least valuable car of the three was a 1964 289 Cobra Roadster that sold for $1,760,000 on the prestige of being the only car like it built at the factory that year with the upgraded Stage III performance package.
The prices paid were on the high end for their respective models, according to the Hagerty Price Guide, but all are nowhere near in comparison to the most expensive Shelby Cobra ever sold.
