Finding a Mustang hidden in a barn is something we can all dream about. But finding a genuine Shelby GT500 convertible is another story. As is this case. But before you go reaching for your wallet take a close look. This Shelby has seen better days.

The photos tell the story. Unfortunately this car is full of rust and would be a long road to bring it back to its former glory. The floors appear to have been rusted right through and just about everything else on the car needs attention. This would make quite an expensive and lengthy restoration for the lucky person who manages to purchase it.

The vehicle is a documented 428 Cobra Jet engine with a 4-speed manual transmission and is 1 of 408 convertibles, 1of 153 engine with manual trans and 1 of 197 with lime gold paint according the the Marti Report.

At the time of writing it is currently going for $50,100 with a little over 4 days remaining. Head on over to Ebay to have a look. Good luck to the lucky bidder!
