Two rare classic cars that have been left in an old urban barn for 17 years are now being sold for amounts with a total of six digits.
The Ford Mustang Shelbys were covered with so much dust that it saved the paint & # 39; and & # 39; she kept beautiful & # 39 ;, Classic Cars told Sarasota. DailyMail.com.
They bought the raven black GT500 and lime gold GT500 KR from an 87-year-old owner in Tampa Bay, Florida, who wanted to donate the money to charity.
Mr. bought them in Colorado in 1980 as used cars & # 39; s and described them as the & # 39; dream car & # 39; s & # 39; from his brother.
Unfortunately, seven years later buying them he became ill and could no longer drive, according to Christopher Zlamal Snr. from the company.
He kept them in a garage from 1987 to 2002, when he brought them to permanent storage where they have continued to collect dust ever since.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 KR was discovered in a storage area in Tampa Bay, Florida, caked in dirt that was so thick that it & # 39; the vehicle & # 39; maintained
After a good cleaning and a few minor repairs, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 KR has already offered more than $ 108,000 from Friday
The second car discovered in the store was actually a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in raven black, sold privately for an unnamed amount
Since he bought them, Zlamal, 58, the first, a raven black GT500, has already sold for a & # 39; secret & # 39; sum of six digits.
To make the vehicles roadworthy, he said he just had to install new gas and fuel tanks, replace the batteries, maintain them and make some other minor changes – and clean them properly.
He is now selling the second vehicle, a GT500 KR from 1968 eBay awaiting $ 108,100 from Friday and five more days to go.
The classic car has an online reserve of $ 135,000 and features the original manuals, documentation, and components.
The vehicle has a Cobra Jet V8 under the hood, power steering, power-disc brakes, tilt control, tinted glass and only 12,000 km on the clock.
Zlamar said DailyMail.com: & # 39; I have been doing this for 30 years and have found nice things in garages, but never two Shelby & especially no KR.
& # 39; The KR is extremely rare to find, especially with original paint.
& # 39; The car drives, drives and everything works, even the air conditioning.
& # 39; Believe it or not, the dust was so thick that it kept the paint and kept it nice … later we gave it a big scrub.
& # 39; The reason that the previous owner sold was now because he is 87 years old and wants the money to be donated to charity.
& # 39; He has no family or relatives, has never been married and has had no children.
& # 39; These were cars that he always wanted to have, it was his brother's dream car & # 39; s. & # 39;
The Ford Mustang Shelby above was not operated by the owner since 1987 and was transferred from a garage to a storage unit in 2002

When he first saw the car, Zlamar described the vehicles as & # 39; once in a lifetime finds & # 39; in a Youtube video reveal them.
& # 39; This is definitely a real time capsule, & # 39; he added.
& # 39; If you are talking about chasing classic cars, this is & # 39; n car. It costs me a lot to get out of my seat and drive an hour north of my location. & # 39;
Zlamar revealed that it took him half a day to get to the storage unit that was near a Florida chemical plant.
& # 39; The door to the garage had to be unscrewed, it took half an afternoon to unlock the door because it was closed for 17 years and all hinges were rusty & he said DailyMail.
Despite the initial blue in the garage, one of the Shelby cars was in fact an ultra rare raven black vehicle.
& # 39; It was one of 184 cars built with four speeds and one of the six cars built with the options it had, it was very rare, & # 39; Zlamar added
He hopes that the second, the GT500 KR, also on & # 39; more than six figures & # 39; will close on eBay after the bidding ends on July 17.
Hagerty, which value classic cars & # 39; s online, estimate that if everything were original and well preserved, it would be worth up to $ 200,000.
