Houston, Texas – (November 2,  2016) – Dan Kruse Classics, one of the world’s premier classic car auction houses,  has announced extraordinary classic cars to be presented at the highly-anticipated Houston Classic Car Auction at the George R. Brown Convention Center located at 1001 Avenida de las America in Houston, Texas. November 25^th and 26^th, 2016.  The word “rare�?? barely describes the remarkable collection of vehicles included in the auction. The recently announced Sir Stirling Moss 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustang that Moss drove in vintage competitions will be joined by a collection that will make any classic car collector’s knees weak.

Collectors will now have the chance to bid on one of the rarest collectible and early muscle cars ever built. It’s the 1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL monster of a car which has 425 horse power and is a convertible with XL500 trim. The car was produced in Southern California and later made its way to Texas.

Only 10 (ten) of these magnificent cars were ever produced and includes all the traits of elegant styling, brute performance and maximum collectability.

Rounding out the sale is today’s most collectible Shelby Mustang street car, the 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT – 500 KR Convertible which is one of only 325 produced. It features a 428 Cid Cobra Jet Ram Air V-8 Engine,  4-speed manual transmission, power disc brakes, power steering, tilt away steering wheel, rare factory air conditioning and was completely restored in 2015. It also comes with a Marti Report and the Shelby Registry. The bright red paint alone says “fast, classic and cool.�??

Additional highlights of the “Houston Classic Car Auction�?? to be conducted by Dan Kruse Classics include a rare collection of highly-sought-after muscle and classic cars that will be offered for the very first time to collectors around the globe by Dan Kruse Classics. This collection includes a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Resto-Mod; 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Tribute; a 1957 Ford Ranchero; a 1965 and a 1966 Ford Thunderbird Coupe; 1954 Ford Crestline Skyliner; a 1955 Ford Crown Victoria; a 1970 Ford Ranchero Squire; a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupe;  a 1978 Fiat 124 Spyder; a 1963 MGB Mark Convertible; a 1973 Triumph Stag; a 1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III; and a 1970 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 among many others.  

“I am beyond excited for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at the Houston Classic Car Auction. There are no words that can adequately describe the rarity and beauty of the Stirling Moss Shelby 1966 Shelby GTO, the unbelievable Ford Galaxie XL 427 and the 1968 Ford Mustang GT 500KR which are being offered at this auction. The power, the history and the stories behind each of these cars are what movies are made of,�?? said Dan Kruse, President of Dan Kruse Classics. “Wow, this will truly be one of our most exciting auctions to date.�??
