click above image to view more pics of the 1967 Shelby GT500 SuperSnake

You might be asking the same question that we are. Why isn't this thing at Barrett-Jackson? With the auction less than a week away, this car would have been the perfect candidate for an over-zealous buyer to pay way too much for a classic muscle car. Only one Shelby GT500 SuperSnake was ever built, so it's even more rare than the Shelby Cobra SuperSnake that sold for $5 million at Barrett-Jackson last year. Shelby built twice as many of those! Still, it doesn't make the $3 million Buy It Now price sound any less ridiculous. Cool features of this truly-and-honestly one-of-a-kind car include a 427ci V8 with 520 horsepower, a 170 mph top speed and unique triple stripes.

      The reason it's on Ebay is simple. Larger audience. Ebay can reach more buyers than BJ can.

      Your bow-tie is too tight! Ford, GM & Chrysler have all made past vehicles that would qualify as "junk", but I think current Ford vehicles are very high quality! As for Performance, bring your best 5.7 (350 ci) Camaro (I know they've not been made in years but I'm giving you near 70 ci) and I'll use a similarly equipt & weight 4.6 (281) Mustang and we will see who wins the quarter-mile! Or, if you REALLY want to be embarrased, well take 'em out on the Road Course and I'll wave at you each time I lap you! Oh, and your new S/C 6L Vette...I'll use my Ford GT with it's little S/C 5.4 and you'll see my tail lights disappear at the drags or again I'll wave at you each time I lap you on the road course! Loosen the Bow-Tie and take a breath of fresh air! LOL

        You mean to tell me that a one of a kind 40 year old car, with a big block, and that I paid $3,000,000 for would not make a good daily driver.

        Shocking insight you have. Really...just amazing

        People don't buy it for it's great value. People buy it for the same reason they buy a Model T. It's a collectors item. For a Mustang lover, or any classic car lover for that matter, this is worth it.

      you're right... the car should go for much MORE. very underpriced. this is not just a "mustang", this is the rarest of all Mustangs and a pure icon. if you have a one of kind of ANY successful sports car from this era you will see the same price.

      I'm amazed that somebody would pay more than $800 for a used Falcon.
      But seriously...Maybe this vehicle didn't make the B-J cut, either in entry timing or condition.

      I just pressed buy it now. I will resell it at BJ's for 100% profit.

      Really cool car!

      He'd bring it to B-J for auction, but he wants to make sure he gets enough floor time.

      I'd rather have a clone and 2.9 millions of change.
