John Hollansworth Jr./Mecum Auctions

Yup, the one with the 428 "Cobra Jet" engine.

In a collector car market dominated by eight-figure Ferraris, a black Shelby Mustang is a welcome relief. An every-man's hero. A Budweiser in a wine bar.

The auction house does not give a pre-sale estimate. However classic car insurer Hagerty sets a value for this model at $146,000-184,000 in good to excellent condition.
