Special car for sure. But once you get past 100k,  you're getting into real Shelby money. And at that level it is more of an "investment" decision than a "thats a nice car" decision.

1971 429 CJs: Grabber Lime, Grabber Blue, White, Dark Green Metallic (2), Pewter, Red Convertible 1972: Sprints (3), 1973: Pink Convertible (2)
Sold for $115,500.  The Grabber Lime one was Thomas' car and a very nice one.   There are a few of us on this forum that still have our 71 vert 429s.  This is my red one.

The $115.500 included the commission... It sold for $105,000. It has been a while since a factory big block 71 vert has crossed a major auction block, so predicting the final sale price was truly an unknown, no comparable's... Given these times... a fair price in today's market.

An extremely attractive package with all the goodies you could ask for in a vert.  IMO, it would be hard not to drive and enjoy what it has to offer.

I should think about buying a lottery ticket now and then.....
