Which would you buy?

As the world gears up for the premier of Ford v Ferrari, you could celebrate your allegiance by selecting one of two classic cars for sale through The Vault. One is a 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Convertible, one of only 404 ever made. The other is a tribute of a legend, the 1959 Ferrari 196S Dino Fantuzzi Spyder.

If you’re interested in classic American muscle, this Shelby GT350 Convertible is an excellent representation. Proudly wearing Sunlit Gold Metallic over Black, this vehicle has been restored to its factory condition. That includes a White power-folding convertible top, numbers-matching 320ci V8 and 4-speed manual transmission, 3.89:1 rear axle, power disc brakes, power steering, Extra Cooling Package, fog lights, Visibility Group, 15-inch aluminum Shelby 10-spoke wheels, and so much more.

Since 2003, this Shelby has been living the salt-free life in Arizona. A recent restoration leaves the interior looking immaculate and sporting correct details like a Cobra-embossed armrest pad.

There were only two original 1959 Ferrari 196S Dino Fantuzzi Spyders made, with only one surviving. This is an exceptional reproduction crafted with an aluminum body and sharp details about 25 years ago. Exterior, interior, and even engine compartment designs are exquisite, making this a worthy tribute to a racing legend.

As the story goes, a NASCAR team owner acquired this Ferrari, which was said to have been built by a team of craftsmen in Italy with ties to Ferrari, Pininfarina, and Fantuzzi. Those men wanted to keep their identities a secret, so there’s quite a bit of mystery surrounding the origins of this recreation. Considering how well-built and accurate it is, there’s plenty of evidence to back up these claims.

No matter which of these cars you choose, you’re getting a quality, highly collectible automobile. The Vault has many other impressive vehicles, in case you’re looking for something different. A number of top-shelf services are offered by the company as well, including appraisals, restorations, and pre-purchase inspections.
