Auction Block: 1968 Ford Shelby GT350 Convertible

The first Shelby Mustang convertible came roaring onto the scene in 1968. Getting one half a century ago was already difficult–only 404 were produced that year–so encountering one today is even harder. Chances of discovering a diamond in the rough, rusted-out and broken down, gathering dust under barn beams and stacks of hay, are slim enough. Thus, this pristinely preserved blue Shelby Mustang GT350 convertible is a gem of the highest rarity. Though painted in a beautiful azure called “Acapulco Blue,” the Shelby Mustang GT350 is an all-American muscle car. The ’68 was built with a 302 V8 engine, an aluminum Cobra intake manifold, a Holley 650 CFM 4-barrel carburetor, and a manual four-speed transmission that translates to 250 horsepower. This Mustang was restored in 1992-93 by Vintage Classic Car Restoration, who installed a power-operated white top with glass backlight and black interior. Beneath the custom outfit, this Mustang features many of its original factory fundaments, including a ’68 air conditioning system, power steering and front disc brakes, front and rear bumper guards, wheel lip bright moldings over OG Shelby 10-spoke aluminum wheels and period-correct BF Goodrich Radial tires. The piece de resistance? This pristine machine has Caroll Shelby’s autograph on the dash. Fitting, as this is a signature car of one of America’s classic companies.

CARRAIG RIDGE ROCK HOUSE

Developed and named after the sandstone outcropping it’s plotting upon, this 750 square foot cabin situated in Alberta’s Carraig Ridge is the first home to be built in the surrounding area. Meaning, that in addition to some fine amenities and a well-designed retreat home, you’ll enjoy complete and utter privacy in this true-blue wilderness cabin. Dubbed the Rock House, the project was conceived and built by award-winning architect James Cutler of Cutler Anderson Architects. Additionally, the bungalow-style home boasts a full basement, is almost entirely enveloped in glass resulting in outstanding panoramic views of the countryside, and a toasty fireplace to keep warm during those cold Canadian winter retreats.

1967 CHEVROLET C-10 PICKUP

It was back in 1967 when Chevrolet decided to launch a revised version of the previously successful C/K Pickup series. What resulted was a cleaner and crisper iteration during the ’67 and ’68 production years thanks to a small rear window and the absence of side marker lights making them quite unique for years to come. Now, in celebration of their Centennial Anniversary, it looks like Chevy is reverting back to its old habits – releasing a special edition ode to the classic ’67 C-10 pickup. Details on the truck are scarce at best, but what we do know is that the re-issued C-10 features some of the same elements as the celebratory 2018 Centennial Edition Silverado and Colorado – including its “Centennial Blue” paint job. The official celebration is slated to kick off at the Texas Motor Speedway on December 16 of this year, where we’re sure we’ll learn more about what Chevy has in store for their 100th year in the business.

THE BARN IN WILSON, WYOMING

We tend to cover homes that stand out from the crowd. Generally speaking, they’re either built in far out and amazing locales, or they boast exteriors that make radical statements. The Barn in Wilson, Wyoming by Carney Logan Burke Architects is not quite one of those houses. And that is far from a bad thing. The architecture firm Carney Logan Burke made sure of that. Not only did they manage to stay true to the form of old barns, but they found a way to add a stunning glass wall that opens up to a striking view of the Tetons in a way that compliments that classic style. The 2,400 square foot building, however, has more than just a prize winning view. The inside of the space, put together by WRJ Interior Design, features a refined look that includes a modern guest bathroom located on the second floor, along with a first floor garage for the home owners’ bike and car collection. The cumulative effect is a home that looks like it belongs to the past, but has all of the comfort and amenities of a modern building.
