(Weatherford, TX) — A classic Ford Mustang long-thought destroyed and likely worth millions has been found. The 1967 car, nicknamed Little Red, was loaned to famed auto designer Carrol Shelby to test out high-performance parts. It appeared at an auto event in Los Angeles before it was sent back to Ford, where it was supposed to be crushed. Instead it made its way into the hands of a few owners, none aware of its significance. Craig Jackson, CEO of the Barrett-Jackson Auction House, found the car when he happened to find a record of its original VIN number, instead of a Shelby-issued number everyone else had used for years. A quick search and there it was. It was sitting in pretty poor condition in a Texas yard, and Jackson says he picked it up for a fair price.
