6. 1970 Ford Boss Mustang 429 $275,000
One of 500 Boss 429's built in 1970. Restored to factory specs by skilled craftsmen that take pride in their cars. Not only does this have a matching numbers engine, but all of the items on the car are dated correctly. This car was done back to original factory specs, possibly being slightly over restored because they never took this much time when they went down the assemble line. The correct colors and sheen are on this car, the overspray on the bottom of the car, the chaulk marks and correct trim tags. Everything has been gone through to make sure all electrical items work correctly. When you are looking for the top Mustang to add to your collection, the Boss 429 is always a top choice. We have the Kevin Marti Report, the Build Sheet, the Window Sticker and both original Ford shipping invoices one to Kar Kraft and then to Granite Motors in Granite Falls MN. The paint is base coat clear coat and all the door, fender, hood and deck lid gaps have been fit very precisely. We had this car inspected by Bob Perkins and judged by him and we recieved a Concours Trailered Gold through the MCA with Bob being the judge. Everything in the interior is new and correct. The gauges were sent out and the plastic is rechromed and the gauges recalibrated. The clock and radio were also sent out and restored. The engine was sent out and dynoed before being installed in the car to make sure it ran properly and there were no oil leaks. The dyno sheet came back with 462hp. The tranny was also ran on a machine to make sure it shifts and goes through the gears properly. Look over this car carefully, it is top of the line.
7. 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby 350 $247,500
This car, #SFM6S002 is the very first '66 production Shelby. It is the first of the 252 extremely desirable Shelby "carryover" cars built. #SFM6S001, the first serial numbered '66 Shelby, was slated to be a '65 Shelby. That car was modified as the prototype for production 1966 Shelby's and today retains its prototype status. #SFM6S002 has just received an incredibly complete ground-up restoration in its original Wimbledon White color with Guardsman Blue LeMans stripes. The black interior with original rear seat delete package shelf is just as it was originally built and delivered by Shelby on October 19, 1965. Shortly after the second owner acquired the car, it was extensively raced in the Mid West including Road America, Black Hawk Farms, Grattan, Mid Ohio, Road Atlanta and Watkins Glen. After being acquired from its second owner, the restoration was performed by Cobra Automotive of Wallingford, Connecticut. It is powered by a correct and fully rebuilt 289 Hi-Po, 306hp V8 and proper T-10M Aluminum 4-speed transmission. No expense was spared in the restoration back to its original state with many NOS and original date-coded parts. It is equipped with a Holley 715 CFM carburetor, 3.89 Detroit Locker rear, original dash mounted tachometer, radio delete, wood grain steering wheel, Shelby Cragar 15" wheels and Goodyear blue dot tires. These early production "carryover" cars combined the best of both the '65 and '66 Shelby's. They retain the hardcore '65 performance features with the distinctive '66 Shelby visual features added to set them apart from regular production Mustangs. This Shelby is listed in the Shelby American World Registry and comes with its original Shelby owner's manual, Hi-Po supplement, SAAC club documentation and more. Its number one production status and its racing pedigree make this a historically significant Shelby.

10. 1958 Chevrolet Corvette $220,000
My 1958 Corvette is a beautiful Silver Blue dream. Prior to owning it, it had been in my wife's family for over 30 years. A 5-year, $200,000, frame-off restoration was completed in 2008 with less than 900 miles on the odometer since completion. Everything on the outside is vintage 1958 but upgraded with a newer model 350cid V8. This is not a Resto-Mod. This is a great driver, with the option of returning back to original. Resto-Mods have new components that make it impossible to revert back to original, such as a new frame or a massive Corvette engine. My vision was to restore this vehicle in such a way as to be able to drive it, enjoy it and restore it back to original at a future date. Included with this sale is the original engine block and most of the engine components, including the original manual transmission. The engine is a 350hp Ram Jet engine. It came completely set up from GM. It has electronic ignition, Fuel Injection and is extremely fast. It's painted Chevy Orange and rumbles at idle the way a Corvette should. The new manual transmission is a Tremec 5-speed with overdrive for the highway. At 65mph the tachometer shows 1,500rpm. The rear end was converted to posi-traction because it just made sense. We put in 4-wheel disc brakes with dual ports and stainless brake lines. The tires are 3" white wall radials. With new leaf springs and shocks, this car rides very comfortable yet sporty. The mufflers are loud enough when you want them to be, yet soft enough to be able to converse with the passenger at highway speeds. The interior is from Al Knock and was upgraded to leather. Restoration work was done by Restorations Unlimited II. Bodywork/fiberglass done by a Bloomington Gold vintage Corvette judge, Robin Winnan, Harmony Corvette.
