A local resident recently passed and his 1969 Shelby GT-500 will be offered for auction on Friday, April 25th (revised date) in Centre Hall, PA.  He was the original and only owner of the car that was parked in 1972 with only 8,531 original miles.  The owner maintained the car even when not driven, and it was running as recently as 3 years ago.  It’s a real survivor with original tires (see commentary below - 3/70' replacements), belts, hoses, etc and appears to be in very nice condition.  

The auctioneer will be Ronald Gilligan Auctions.  The link to the sale is:  

http://www.rgilliganauctions.com/4-25%20brown%20contents.html

You can see “as discovered” photos of the car in the deceased’s garage. Our understanding is that it was not driven in the rain or hose washed, ever.  I inspected the car for the auctioneer and took these pictures.  There are also other low mileage vehicles and interesting items that will be in the sale.  His garages are packed.  We will upload more pictures describing the car within the next few weeks.

You can send me a note if you have specific car questions but business or sale matters should be directed to the auctioneer.  He asked that I list this on the forum since we are long term friends and I am a SAAC member and Shelby collector.

A lot can happen in 8500 miles and 3 yrs on the road but if its as original as it looks on the surface then in MHO it is worth more cleaned up and running than a restored DIV one car that is just one persons interpretation of original.JMO

The owner died about a year ago and I was told about the car literally a day later. It has since been offered around locally by the heirs. Word is that they were looking for $100K or better. No one around here thinks it is worth that, especially in a non running state, stuck in a garage surrounded by junk where it cannot be properly evaluated. So it has gone unsold and now they are taking the auction route.

The sale is scheduled for the same Saturday that much of the serious east coast Shelby and Mustang world will be in Charlotte at the 50th anniversary celebration. (Duh!) But my experience with these "Estate auctions" is that a couple of underinformed bidders typically show up and lose their minds first and their wallets second, so they will likely have this one to themselves.

Dane would like to document some things on that car for concours judging & would hope they don't mess with the car before the sale,  Are you sure the tires are original to that car from new?

It looks like oil?  The smog and snorkel have left the engine bay, but there looks to be some really good detail in there. I'm thinking it should have a dual vacuum advance as well?


Ed, do you have an original upper rad hose?
