While perusing the RM Sotheby’s auction lots for their recent Auburn sale, we were dumbfounded when we spotted a 1965 Shelby GT350R replica on the list. The auction estimate was set at just $11,000-$14,000 as the car was a roller, missing the engine, transmission, front valence and some of the front suspension components.

On the plus side, the car had the plexiglass, GT350R-style rear window plus a very nice interior that featured a period-correct roll bar–perhaps a good basis for a roll cage.

The car was painted plenty good enough for a race car and looked almost exactly like a 1965 Shelby GT350R. Who wouldn’t want to race that? You could picture yourself as Jerry Titus, Mark Donohue or Bob Bondurant?

17K seems like a solid deal, although in my world I'd screech if I spent more than 10K on a finished race car, this is what things cost and the car "looks" rust free.

Looking forward to see what the final tally is.
