You’re right that was 1988 dollars.

It is what it is, a one-off $2 million Mustang with white walls. Gotta love'em.

A lot of money being spent at that auction but it seems that the $10,000,000 for a Ford GT and $6,000,000 for a Ferrari was a bit too much for bidders. Reserves not met.
But the Hulk got to sell his pick up truck twice!!!

If you were to spend $2 million on a car, would you spend it on a Mustang?
I'd spend the 2 mil on a private jet.

Sad it will never be driven, and rightly so. You could have all the Boss, Cobra jet, Mach1's and Shelby's with any engine you want, and in several colors, and drive them all when you want every day. Instead of this one, and not drive it.



I would just like to have this one I had years ago. I had the Ford dealer put in a 3.55 gear. That really woke it up, was like a different car.

It's nice when you hobby/passion pays for itself...

He is down to one original Cobra now... but I was sad to see the last GT40 go...

It is fun looking up the family name in the registry books by serial number.

Pretty much always been a Ford man... even the Lotus 7 were Ford powered if I remember right... there were other cars like Lola and Austin Healy, TR3, etc... but AC Cobra GT40, Ford GT, Mustang 350, Pantera and Tiger were his passion...

I was not so lucky but my brother was able to drive an original 289 Cobra to his High School Graduation Breakfast... he was most popular!

I drove the 31 Model A Vicky I had restored...

I could cry.

My very first car was a 1967 Shelby Fastback.

My dad redid cars for fun and bought it to restore for me.

Unfortunately he passed away before he could finish it and my mom sold it.
