Anybody into classic cars/own a classic car?

Three Shelby Cobras at the Mecum Auctions Indy 2019 sale have amassed an incredible combined total of $6.4 million from crossing the block.

Sold as part of the Steven Juliano Estate Collection, the trio include an early 1964 289 Roadster, along with a later 427 Cobra, and an ultra-rare S/C (Semi-Competition) car from 1967.

The Cobra collective proved to be a star on the fourth day of sales at the packed Indy sale. This was even on an auction listing which included other amazing muscle cars and exemplary classic machinery.

Undoubtedly the star of the Steven Juliano Collection, this particular 1967 Cobra is just one of 29 S/C Roadsters produced by the Shelby factory.

Widely regarded as the ultimate Shelby Cobra, S/C cars featured the 427-cubic inch V-8 engine and had been intended to homologate the car for racing use. However, FIA inspectors were unhappy with the number of cars built, and denied it competition approval.

As a result, fewer than 30 Cobras were released onto the streets, still wearing the same upgrades which had been intended for race use. This included flared fenders, side exhausts, and an external filler for the race-spec fuel tank.




This particular S/C was first purchased by the owner of a Boston, Massachusetts Ford dealership in October 1966.

Despite having had five owners from new, and the unyielding temptation to enjoy the estimated 500+ horsepower of the FE engine, this car has amassed just 10,760 miles from new.

Juliano had spent time ensuring the car was returned to original specification, leaving it as one of the most authentic 427 S/C Cobras in existence. His work justifies the $2.7m paid.

Bringing you the opportunity to experience the perfect ‘Cuda for yourself, Classic Cars Of Sarasota is now offering a 1970 Cuda 440 Six-Pack in Sublime Green. This ‘Cuda underwent a well documented full restoration to bring the all numbers matching car back to its original condition. Listed at only $124,500, it would be very hard to find a better deal or a better car.
