RM sells Shelby Cobra from Sam Pack Collection for $1.3m

High expectations met

The past weekend saw American businessman Sam Pack part ways with a large part of his famous car collection, in order to focus on the small group that remains in his possession. Most expensive of the offloaded machines was the green 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra (which Pack acquired in 2008) that sold for $1,292,500, therefore contributing heavily towards the sale total of $11,543,400. Elsewhere, a 2006 Ford GT that had covered only 13 miles since leaving the factory sold for $418,000, against an estimate of $300,000 – 400,000.
