Lee Marvin’s Shelby GT500 Up for Grabs

Haven’t run a collector car auction post in a while, so here’s one with a Hollywood connection. At Russo and Steele’s upcoming Scottsdale auction (January 15 to 19), they’re offering a 1968 Shelby GT500 KR convertible. It's one of only 318 built, and Marvin was the original owner, driving it until 1972.

It’s had a few owners since, of course, starting with Mr. Marvin’s gardener, who received it as a gift. Nice boss! It had a concours-level restoration by Drew Alcazar in the ‘80s, and still has less than 47,000 miles on it. It comes with its Shelby Automotive Pre-Deliver Inspection form, and four original Shelby American 10-spoke wheels. Sweet.
