It’s something he had built for himself; he had a lot of pride in this, and loved to tell stories about driving the car,” said Carroll’s grandson.

This price is about the same amount its previous owner paid to own this ride back in 2007.

The roadster started life as a 427 Cobra Competition were it was used for a European tour in 1966. Since then, it has undergone many major upgrades.

Features on this ride includes a date-coded engine block, headers with spray-painted black chrome-sided pipes, and Shelby’s signature on the glovebox and engine.
