All I can say is wow. I had a feeling it would bid to seven figures. To all the coupe haters , Ha Ha. The most money offered for an early Mustang ever and it was a coupe. ( I happen to like all 3 body styles)I'm just stirring the pot. I have to say that I'll be shocked if he doesn't let it go for that price, 1.8-.9 mil is a lot of coin.......
4.2 for the batmobile, That was exciting. My sons (7 and 8) were jumping around yelling and high fiving when it was over. It may not be reality But I do enjoy watching Barrett Jackson once a year.
This will break some hearts. It never got a Shelby serial number. Shelby developed it along with Fomoco engineers. Oh, and it was also built (factory) in Lime Gold before a repaint.
I've seen the car in person. It is very nice but worth more than $300, 000? I don't think so.

It was a feature car in Mustang Monthly a few years back.
I finally looked up the MM issue which had a feature on the Green Hornet, it was Nov 1994, pg 46, the cover story was on the Boss429 and showed a white 1969 Boss9.
To view pictures of my 1968 unrestored original (survivor) coupe, 11,845 miles (from Menlo Park CA): go to --http://www.allfordmustangs.com/photopost/showgallery.php/cat/500/ppuser/105333[/url] -- click on a picture to enlarge it, then click on the enlarged picture to super-size it.
Well, it IS one-of-one, but it's not the only one-of-one Shelby.
It's a nice car with an interesting story and a great Mustang, but in the end it's still a Mustang which mean that even if this one is the only one with this exact combination of parts, it's also one of 317,400.
I'd rather spend my 2 million on a real GT40, or a why not the first million on a pair of real Cobras (289 and 427) and the other million on 6 regular Shelby Mustangs, one of each year. I'm affraid I have to park them outside though, because there probably wouldn't be enough left for an 8 car garage
So, its not actually a Shebly since it didnt get registered and a badge.. my bad. still only one EXP500 "Green Hornet" ever made. Guess there could be a few that would actually bring more $. Still a nice car.
Car is def rare. BUT did anyone watch the auction Bidding stopped @ $300k an then the price took off but did you notice NO TV goin out to the "bidders"
Ya Shelby's last 4 cars in 66 were convertibles. blue, green, yellow and red. Cars can be rare 1 of 1 BUT what counts is what someone will pay in cash. Thats what the car is worth.
Ok now i am so confused, this car had a reserve of which was not met, so i guess the top bid was 1.8 M , of which Craig thinks not enuff money for the car, and hence back to his personal collection, or perhaps to another seller under the table?
