'Drag Pack' $160k Shelby to star at RM's auction

Here's another quick look at RM Auction's sensational Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale event, which kicks-off today (running between March 26-28).

We've already reported on a yellow-painted classic with a go faster stripe painted down its side, the 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback.

And now here's another: the 1970 Shelby GT 500 Drag Pack. This magnificent Shelby will auction tomorrow (Saturday, Mach 27) with an estimate of $120,000-$160,000.

The 1970 Shelby GT 500 Drag Pack

According to RM, this final-year GT 500 is a very well preserved one-owner example which required only minor refurbishing.

The historic American automobile has been refinished in its original Screaming Yellow, and features a 428 SCJ engine, a Toploader four-speed, Drag Pack, and 3.90:1 rear end gearing.

Other collectible cars making special appearances at RM's unmissable sale include a 1971 Dodge Challenger Convertible which featured in 1968-73's crime series, The Mod Squad.
