Interestingly, the highest sale during the week, a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Longnose, was part of a once-in-a-lifetime barn find pair that also included a 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra. Both cars had been parked and left untouched in the same garage since 1991. The 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra, also auctioned at Gooding & Company, sold for $1,045,000, including auction premium.
