Carroll Shelby's First Race Car Up For Auction At Barrett-JacksonSThe first car ever raced by legendary motorsports figure Carroll Shelby will go up for sale at the Barrett-Jackson auction this October. The car is a 1949 MG TC that Shelby borrowed for a pair of races in Norman, Oklahoma in 1952 — both of which he won. The TC is still in racing form, powered by a 1250cc four-cylinder engine tuned for 100 horsepower. The BRG MG is not just a rolling piece of history, it's also a reminder of a time when the toughest guy ever to go by Carroll spent as much time driving as he did suing people. Considering that Shelby's GT500 convertible went for $657,000, we think this will be a little out of our league. [AutoWeek]
