A piece of Shelby American history, al-

beit a small piece, went across the auction

block at the Mecum auction in Harrisburg,

Pennsylvania this past August. The 1959

Austin Healey Mk I Bugeye Sprite report-

edly used in Shelby’s driving school be-

tween 1961 and 1965 (according to the

description in Mecum’s auction catalog)

sold for $22,000. It was the only Sprite used

in the school.

The latest NADA guide for collectible,

exotic and sports cars puts the value be-

tween a low of $7,300 and a high of $39,800

with a median of $21,600. Based on those

numbers, this car sold right on the money.

It appears that the Shelby pedigree didn’t

help its value the way it typically has with

other Shelby-related cars in the past.
