RM Auctions last year held a special Ford-themed auction during the Monterey Car Week, giving bidders a rare chance to buy several of Ford’s one-off concept cars built within the last decade. RM Auctions is at it again this year by offering some more Ford concept cars up for auction.
The first concept is the Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept, which debuted at the Pebble Beach show in 2004. The GR-1 was built to celebrate the 40th anniversary for the famous Shelby Daytona Coupe. Unfortunatly though, this version isn’t the running version that was unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show that same year.
Next up is the original Ford Thunderbird Spors Roadster Concept, which debuted at the 2001 Detroit Motor Show. As you’d guess, this was the concept that brought the new Thunderbird to life for a couple years.
Ford said that all of proceeds from the sales of these concept cars will be donated to charity. Both cars are expected to fetch about $125,000 to $200,000 each.
