Catch the auction action on May 14-16, 2014
Shelby Cobra enthusiasts possibly searching for that next car may be interested in this rare gem – a 1963 Shelby Cobra 289. It will cross the auction on the weekend of May 14-16, 2014 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Some of the other Ford vehicles hitting the stage alongside the Cobra include a 1930 Model A Pickup (restored stock), 1970 Boss 302 Mustang, 1968 Shelby GT530 convertible, and a 1965 Shelby GT350.
Auctions America had a very successful auction last year with $17.5 million in sales selling 74% of all lots sold. Ft. Lauderdale seems to be an extravagant event with more than 450 cars spanning a wide variety of collector tastes.
“Over the years the South Florida area has developed its own car culture—it’s one of the hottest exotic markets in the world,” said Donnie Gold, President of Auctions America. “Whether you are an exotic car lover looking for something extra rare or an American car fanatic looking for a classic you can’t find elsewhere – the Fort Lauderdale auction has something for everyone.”
